Sorry I’ve been gone so long!

Hello

I am really sorry I haven’t been around for so long, as this wasn’t my plan at all and I am sad that I wasn’t able to blog as much during 2016 as I had hoped. Unfortunately I had a pretty tough year, as I lost my Grandma at the beginning of February and this really affected me (in fact before that I had been working on my end of Jan post sharing what I had made, it’s still in drafts!). My health was also really bad and it made every day such a battle, so coming onto my tablet to do my blog became harder and harder. As you can see I was able to pop in and do some, especially when I had some exciting yarn news to share or I was testing some yarn but none of these posts would have even been possible without the help of my lovely husband D.

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

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 πŸ™‚

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.Β 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 πŸ™‚

I hope you all enjoyed my post yesterday and for those that were not sure what Slub yarn was do now πŸ™‚ , 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
