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. Continue reading

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!

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

2015 Yearly Round up Part 1

As promised I am back with my yearly round up of 2015 🙂 and I wanted to this specially because I know over the last few months of last year I got behind and never did all my monthly update posts that I was doing. So I thought at least this way you could find out what I made in the months that I wasn’t able to do the monthly update posts 🙂 although this post wont be as detailed as those. I will be sharing a photo collage of each month with what I made and I will also include a link to each project on Ravelry (public viewable) if you want to see more photos or information. So please be aware this post will be photo heavy so it might take a few moments to load them all! Continue reading
