IKEA Storage

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 3:26 pm 0 comments

 I needed some LED bulbs from IKEA. When I need something so cheap I usually add a few other items to spread out the postage. I always wanted something to put away the large shawls. I have a few and they would clutter up quite a bit space. And I had them everywhere.

I though why not a shoe hanging thingy. I have space behind the door.

It's called SKUBB Hanging Shoe Organiser and it's perfect.

Then I bought 2 SKUBB Storage Cases 44x55x19cm for my handknitted sweaters and cardigans. They fit perfectly in my wardrobe. I never had moths up here but still.

Then I have this slim wardrobe that usually had sweaters and shirts hanging. I just don't like sweaters, even bought ones on hangers. They lose shape. Then I spotted the SKUBB Storage with 9 compartments. It fit perfectly. The shirts are now in the other wardrobe and my sweaters rest comfy.

I also bought 2 sizes SPANTAD vacuum-sealed bags.

All together without shipping and the bulbs it cost me £21.50. Absolutely worth every penny.

Wardrobe declutter

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 3:20 pm 0 comments

 I mentioned that I won't be using eBay anymore. But unfortunately after checking all these apps and stuff I came to the conclusion if I wanted to get rid of stuff quickly and safely the best and efficient way is still eBay. Anyway, to stop eBay having access to our joint account I opened a new bank account and I am using this only for eBay. I check with the bank I chose and they said that it was perfectly fine. It means I can save this money for when there is an emergency. Mainly I am saving up for a new desk chair. I want something really comfy.

I ship almost everywhere but only UK has free shipping.

Everything I am selling is of perfect quality with the odd signs of wear that are impossible to avoid. Unless you walk around with your arms stretched out. 😂

Anyway, I am having a massive declutter of our wardrobes because of our disabilities we can't go out as much anyway, so why would any of us need 10 pairs of jeans or 20 jumpers or 30 pairs of shoes. That's just bonkers.

I am adding atm the first batch of clothing. Once done I will start sorting out the next batch, take pictures and get it ready to list.

Cushions Off The Hook

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 12:25 pm 0 comments

 So I bought these Lion Brand Off The Hook Magic not reading the description properly so I had to get another two.

Anyway, it's really easy to make. I don't know why people struggled with it and had to watch a video.

I made for my musician hubby the one with the note and I have the paw one. It feels very soft but I have 2 issues:

1. The loops could be a bit smaller because I think it would improve the look.

2. the is no stretch sideways, well actually there is no stretch lengthwise either.

I think I have 3 issues.

3. It's NOT a square.

So you really don't know what size of cushion to buy.

I "sown" up one side with the tails and then I thought how to close the other side? A) you want it to look good and B) you want to be able to take the cushion out in case it needs washing.

Then it dawned on me. Ribbon! I used a 5mm ribbon and closed the side like shoelaces and boot. You can see it and you can undo it. 😁

eBid Stores Open!!

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 11:19 pm 0 comments

 All three eBid stores are now open.

Crazy Knitter Patterns

I'm an obsessive collector of knitting patterns. A typical Aspergers' obsession. Or whatever you want to call it I just love looking at all those beautiful designs. In the meantime I have aquired that many patterns that I have to sell them to make space. 

The qualities vary from shop new (yes there is still some old shop stock to find) to well used but far too good a pattern to throw it away. All the patterns are still perfectly usable. They may have some writing from previous owners but I always make sure that everything is perfectly readable.

2nd Hand Outlet

My second hand store is mainly about second hand clothing. Unwanted clothing, clothing that doesn't fit anymore but is perfectly fine to bring joy to a new owner.

I will also sell new patterns I don't need anymore, leftover yarn, yarn I don't want anymore, buttons I have far too many to make any sense. 

I also still have some teddy making supplies I can't use anymore and some other stuff, like accessories, sewing patterns and fabric.

I may also sell some computer spares and other stuff if I have something.

CrazyKnitter Knits & Crochet 

I will sell handmade items I have made for myself or hubby that never made it on the favourite list. Also some baby and childrens knits I just made because I don't like knitting large items during the warmer seasons. I have also made some homeware items because I wanted to make it but not necessarily keep it. 

My prices reflect the cost of materials (yarn, buttons, zips etc) + P&P. Also, I do NOT take on commissions. Don't even bother asking.

We are a smokefree and petfree household, but sometimes vintage patterns do smell a bit. I don't know where they have been stored before I've got them

If there are any questions regarding listings please feel free to ask.

I accept returns, but with limitations. It is not my responsibility if the buyer hasn't read the description properly.

Payment option is Paypal only.

I try to keep postage costs a low as possible. I will always combine postage and refund overcharged postage costs. I will always aquire proof of postage and anything valued £20 and above will be sent recorded.
Most of the items I ship worldwide. Too heavy or very expensive items will be UK only, yet please feel free to ask about shipping abroad.

I hope I can build as good a reputation here as I did elsewhere 

More Shawls

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 11:13 pm 0 comments

 A while back I had started two shawls in Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal. I didn't like the pattern. Too many bobbles. I don't like knitting bobbles and this pattern had hundreds of them. So I was looking for a different pattern I could use up the yarn. I stumbled over a pattern called "Corona Park" and thought that was rather fitting and somehow ironic. It is also available from Ravelry.

I made 2 versions (2 in the same colour) altogether 3 and I still had a lot of leftovers. So I made my own creation and depending on the angle it changes colour. It's a pretty cool effect and so easy to achieve.

Socks Again

 You didn't expect that didn't you? 😂😂😂

A pair for hubby and guess what the same pattern again for myself this time in Lang Yarn Jawoll and Lana Grossa Meilenweit Tweed.

Glacia Shawl

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 10:47 pm 0 comments

 Deramores had Scheepjes yarn on offer. Actually I found the shawl pattern first on Ravelry.

So I hade no choice but to give in and buy some yarn.

I really enjoyed knitting this. The yarn feels lovely too.

Very Green Gloves

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 10:42 pm 0 comments

 I received this yarn in one of the surprise boxes I bought.

I was looking to make some gloves and found this pattern on Ravelry and thought this yarn would be perfect. And it was. I think they turned out great.

Zauberball Socks

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 10:37 pm 0 comments

 I'm actually wearing them right now.

The colour coordination turned out funny.

They are really nice and soft. 

Woll Butt Socks

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 10:34 pm 0 comments

Unfortunately, Buttinette which sells Woll Butt sock yarn has stopped shipping to the UK.

I thin I have another 2 or 3 packs with 3 or 4 balls in stash. I really like this sock yarn.

It is soft but it is also of very good quality and it was so affordable even including shipping.

Here's a pair for hubby and one for me.
