Custom Tags from Laser Llama Boutique

These tags are amazing! The quality is perfect for crochet projects: flexible but sturdy. They don’t rub weirdly against the skin and feel soft to the touch. Mattie is wonderful to work with on your custom design. She puts so much love and care into each order!

Scale (Amazon affiliate link)

I love this scale that I found on Amazon! It makes figuring out the yardage and weights of projects a breeze, which is helpful when writing patterns and mailing completed items!
It has also stood up to repeated dropping and the occasional chuck across the room (I have kids, remember? haha!)

Scissors (WeCrochet affiliate link)

I use these scissors all the time. They are so sharp and cut cleanly through a large variety of yarn types. They fit in any bag. Buy one, buy 10! You can’t go wrong with these travel scissors! Well, except maybe on a plane. They are very sharp!

Long Hook Yarn Weaver (Amazon affiliate link)

This is one of those tools that you never knew you needed! If you despise weaving in ends, this hook is for you! Check out this video of how it works (coming soon)!

Coffee Stitch Markers (top right low middle)

Aren’t these just the cutest?! With a name like The Coffee Shop Crochet, coffee stitch markers are a must have! There are two different clasp types: the lobster clasp and a French hook. I love both, but the French hook works with a larger variety of yarns and thicknesses.

Clover Amour Hooks (WeCrochet affiliate link)

If you have any wrist or hand pain while crocheting, a quality set is worth investing in! These hooks are more comfortable in my hands when crocheting for long periods of time. The bright colors make it easy to tell the sizes apart and find them when they disappear!

Yarn Winder (WeCrochet affiliate link)

If you’ve ever thought, “I don’t need a yarn winder. My hand rolled yarn balls work just fine,” this yarn winder is for you. I never understood the hype behind a yarn winder. Whoo, it winds my yarn. Yippee. I just didn’t get it. Until I started by yarn hanks and realized that hand rolling them takes forever… and from there, I tried it on my scrap yarn…and skeins…and other cakes just because. I was hooked! It actually makes storing my scrap yarn easier because I can stack it and it doesn’t roll everywhere. This particular winder is sturdy, but cost effective for the average crocheter.

Ring Light (Amazon affiliate link)

Taking good photos in good light is difficult when you live in Pennsylvania. The overcast winter days stretch on into the quickly arriving evenings. The chance for well-light photos is few and far between. A ring light solves that problem! This ring light has multiple settings and shades of light. It’s been perfect for taking amazing

Swatch and Needle Gauge (WeCrochet affiliate link)

A good swatch gauge is a must if you are crocheting any type of clothing or project that requires exact sizing. This guide from Clover is perfect! There are two pieces, both sturdy plastic. It fits easily in most crochet bags and makes figuring out gauge a breeze!
