I like to get recommendations from people. While somewhat helpful, seeing a 4 out of 5 star rating for something on a product website only means so much. I would much prefer to get a direct recommendation from someone I know or trust.
When I first started crocheting, I didn’t have any idea what I was doing. I didn’t know anyone who crocheted that could teach me. I learned everything from blogs and YouTube. And whenever I would encounter a new pattern that required new equipment that I had never used, I felt like I needed help. For example, when I first started crocheting in the round, I saw that I needed to get stitch markers. But if you search Amazon or other stores for stitch markers, there are thousands of results and products that all look almost the same for similar prices. And while that could mean that any number of them would work just fine, I would have rather been able to narrow my search based on recommendations from experienced people.
So, that is what this is for. I have not been paid to advertise any of these items, but am just suggesting them because I use them and like them. For some of the links, if you click to purchase something, I will receive a percentage of that at no extra cost to you. If you have any specific questions about any of the items I am suggesting, just send me a message, and I’d be happy to answer it. Below are some categories for products that I love. Some apply directly to projects I have created, some more indirectly, and some not at all but I use them in my life and love them. I hope you love them too.
