Purchasing yarn:

Recently I’ve had great experience with Love Crochet. As I’m living in Norway, I always love to get my hands on yarn from all over the world. When designing crochet patterns I’d love to be able to suggest yarns that also are available wherever you live. Whats so great about Love Crochet is that they ship worldwide & has a huge yarn collection from all over the world!

Crochet hooks:

Using a comfortable hook makes all the difference when crocheting. Ever since I started crocheting, I’ve been exploring different hooks, & I’ve got 2 types of hooks that have really helped me ergonomically & with tension.

My first choice as of now is the Symphonie Rose Crochet Hooks from KnitPro. They opened my world to wood hooks &  impressed me with their amazing lightness & how they feel in my hand. Even though they’re not padded, they never give me any strain while using them. Click the link to purchase the set too, or purchase one separate to give them a try.

My second favorite hooks are also from KnitPro. However they are the hooks I originally had great experience with, padded hooks. The KnitPro Waves hooks are amazing when it comes to the softness when you crochet. They are a little heavier though, but the comfort is truly amazing.

Substituting yarn:

When purchasing a pattern from anyone, even from my shop, sometimes you’d like substitute the yarn. Maybe you’ve already got a yarn in your yarn-stash or you’d prefer purchasing another yarn. Whenever I’m using other yarn than suggested in a pattern, I’ll always check Ravelry & YarnSub. They’ve both got substantial yarn information/catalogs, that will help you with that.
