Stuff We Love: Aromatic Cedar Gift Set

Whether you have a wee problem with wool moths or you just want your knits to smell like wonderful sun-warmed woods, the Aromatic Cedar Gift Set is all you need to spruce up your woolens. I store my finished sweaters in a cedar chest at home and am instantly transported back to the first day of every winter when my mother would unpack her sweaters from storage and give me a big, scratchy hug that smelled like cedar sachets - so I make sure that all of my sweaters continue that tradition.

Stuff We Love: Bee Naturals Cuticle & Nail Oil

Knitting, crocheting, weaving and spinning are all what we call handcrafts, major emphasis on the hand part of that description so maintenance is the name of the game! You can't work your magic without healthy, happy hands and the Bee Naturals Cuticle and Nail Oil is just the ticket for strong nails. I like to rub a good coating on each nail just before bed so that it has plenty of time to soak in and hydrate. I can't get enough of the fresh, herby lemon, lavender and tea tree oil scent and I absolutely find myself looking forward to my little nighttime routine! It's such a calming way to end the day and I know my hands will be in tip-top shape when I wake up. Save 40% off with our tool sale!

Stuff We Love: Amour Crochet Hook Set

However, one day I had a sudden inspiration for a new pattern while in the KP office and could only find our set of Amour Crochet Hook Set to use. So I grabbed them...and my crocheting life changed.

Stuff We Love: Clover Pom-pom Maker

I have to admit, I have an unnatural appreciation for a good pom-pom...well, obsession might be the more appropriate description! There is nothing quite as satisfying as topping off a newly finished knit hat with a big, chunky pom-pom. In my world, there isn't a pom-pom that is too big or too fluffy!
