I’m still here and I promise there are more posts coming soon

Hello there,

I am sorry this place has been very quiet since the launch of Three Bears Yarn Rosie’s Acrylic Slub Yarn, as this wasn’t my intention but unfortunately my health took a dip after this and it’s been a hard few weeks. I have been wanting to do some blog posts since doing the daily posts leading up to the launch of the yarn I was part of, as I really enjoyed doing them even though I did find it tough on my health at times but every time I would try I would struggle and before I realised it weeks has passed me by… Continue reading

Three Bears Yarn: Rosie’s Acrylic Slub DK – Launch Day!

Hello Again 🙂

Today is my last post as part of my daily posts leading up to the launch of Rosie’s Acrylic Slub, which has now been released. How exciting is that? I am really excited and I hope you are too. I hope my posts have helped you in finding out all about this great new yarn and all the possibilities it brings :-).

The best news is the yarn is being sold at a special price for a limited time, so it’s the perfect chance to try some if you have been tempted by this beautiful yarn. It’s currently selling at £2.75 per ball or you can get a pack of 7 of the balls for £17.99. I am afraid the red wasn’t quite ready for the release but it will be coming soon and I will let you know when but in the meantime I hope you will enjoy the others that are available :-). The yarn is being sold in 100g / 338m balls and Three Bears Yarn can ship worldwide so don’t worry if your not in the UK :-). Continue reading

Three Bears Yarn: Rosie’s Acrylic Slub DK – My Review

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for coming to read my review on this fantastic new yarn that is being launched tomorrow (Sunday the 24th of April), it’s been a pleasure to be involved in this project with Three Bears Yarn. As my regular followers will know I have had the pleasure of testing several of their yarns and I have enjoyed trying out every single one and this one has been no exception. I first tried this yarn before I became involved in the project so I hope you will view my review as a fair and honest. Continue reading

Three Bears Yarn: Rosie’s Acrylic Slub DK – Inspired by me!

Hello Again 🙂

I hope you have been enjoying the last few posts all about Rosie’s Acrylic Slub and seeing what I have made so far with this yarn. I am looking forward to my post tomorrow as I will be sharing the sheep I made with this yarn, which you may have seen if you follow me on social media and I will be giving a detailed review on the yarn. It’s not long away till the launch now and I hope your all excited because I am :-).

I thought today I would go into how I have been involved in this project as I know I haven’t mentioned it over here on my blog, it’s only been posts via Instagram (also copied to Facebook and Twitter). It’s been an amazing opportunity for me and one I never expected to come my way but has meant more than words can say <3. As most of you know it’s been a very tough few months with my health and I found it very difficult as I wasn’t able to crochet as much, but one thing that kept me going was this project and being involved in getting it ready for release. I am so grateful for this opportunity and it’s one I will never forget.

Three Bears Yarn: Rosie’s Acrylic Slub DK – My First Creation!

Hello Again 🙂

I hope you all enjoyed my post yesterday and for those that were not sure what Slub yarn was do now 🙂 , I wasn’t sure what it was until I was given this yarn to try out and I soon became a big fan!

Today I thought I would share the first thing I made with this yarn, which was back in January as I was given the yarn to try when it was originally being trialled. I remember seeing the cone of yarn (what samples are often supplied on) for the first time and thinking “wow what is this?” and I was really surprised when I found out it was an Acrylic Slub yarn. I couldn’t wait to try it out and see what it was like as I had never used Slub yarn before. Continue reading

Three Bears Yarn: What is Slub Yarn?

So I’ve had the honour of a yarn inspired by and named after me from the lovely Three Bears Yarn , it’s called Rosie’s Acrylic Slub which is to be launched on 24th April. I was originally sent a sample of this during the trial period and was surprised by it in two ways, the first one is it was an Acrylic yarn that I liked (I’m really not a fan) and compared to other Acrylics I’ve tried this one is worlds apart in a good way. I was also surprised by the texture of the yarn and how versatile it has ended up being, I remember when working with it I had to keep reminding myself this is Acrylic! Continue reading

Sorry I’ve not been around

Hello there,

I am sorry my blog has been quiet for a while now 🙁 as this is not what I wanted for this place, unfortunately my health seemed to have different plans and since Christmas it’s been a really hard time for me.  It meant I was often not well enough to come on and do some blog posts no matter how much I wanted too, which I found very frustrating. I did actually manage to pop on and work on one post, which was my monthly updates but as you can see there have been none published. I actually have January’s post almost ready to publish, which I hope to finally do this week and I will also catch up on the other month’s I have missed too as this year I really want to do these posts regularly rather than having to play catch up.

Three Bears Yarn Review; Grey Black Marl Cotton DK Trial Yarn

I recently had the chance to try some new trial yarn from Three Bears Yarn and I was really excited about this one, as it was Marl Cotton and this kind of yarn is not easy to find especially in the UK. So I couldn’t wait to use it and see what it was like 🙂 and when I saw it I just knew this would be a perfect yarn to make something for my husband!

2015 Yearly Round Up Part 2

This post carries on from Part 1 as I decided I need to split the post as it became very long and I thought it would make for better viewing and loading too. Same warning as the last post, this post is photo heavy so you might need to allow a few moments for the post to fully load.

Well let’s get back to it, the last post was the first 6 months of 2015 and here is the last 6 months of 2015. Continue reading
