Friends, I am so excited to announce that I have become a KnitPicks Ambassador!!

Over the last couple of years, as I have dived back into knitting and crocheting, I learned about KnitPicks and its sister company, We Crochet. I actually found We Crochet first… and quickly started ordering their incredible yarns. (I even got my mother hooked on them!) Well-priced, high-quality… this brand has everything necessary to get started with crafting. I was thrilled to be able to bring my love for knitting to you by partnering with this company!

Let’s unbox what arrived this month, shall we? Oh… and there is a huge surprise at the end.

There was so much yarn!

Let’s talk about what yarn I selected for my make. I really wanted a bulky, warm, but soft scarf. Something oversized that I could wear with anything. My issue is that I can’t wear most wools because I have a slight sensitivity to untreated wool. If it’s treated, something like superwash, or blended, then I can usually get away with it. So I decided to try KnitPicks Bare Super Bulky Wool, composed of 70% Superwash Wool and 30% Superfine Alpaca. Can I tell you, although I read that this yarn was soft, I was surprised at just how soft and squishy it really is!! It comes in a bare, undyed shade which was perfect for me!

As I’m working on my project… perhaps it’s time to share my surprise?

In early December, I am going to be hosting 10 Days of Holidays Giveaways!!!

So if you’re not already following me on Instagram and Facebook, head over there and give me a follow! I’ve already teased one of the incredible prizes… may tease one more this weekend… Wait until you see the rest!! (I’m also on Ravelry, Pinterest and Twitter. 😉)

Friends, it’s that time of year when you are most likely shopping for holiday gifts, planning family get-togethers, or simply (and so lucky if this is you!!) waiting for a few days off to relax by the fire with a good book or some good knitting/crafting and a drink!

To help you end this year on a high note, we are hosting a number of giveaways over on our Instagram page! We started with an amazing giveaway last week with one of our favourite moisturizers ever, IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream… and are continuing today with an amazing giveaway for all of our maker friends with one of the coolest Canadian yarn brands, Sugarbush Yarns!!

Head on over to The Obsessed’s Instagram page, drop down the menu under “following” then “notifications” and toggle both to on!

 

Hope to see you on Instagram, and GOOD LUCK to all who are entering!
