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

 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

 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

 I'm actually wearing them right now.

The colour coordination turned out funny.

They are really nice and soft. 

Woll Butt Socks

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.


Paintbox Socks

Posted by Crazy Knitter22 at 10:29 pm 0 comments

 I bought just one ball of Paintbox Sock yarn because I wasn't sure what to expect.

It feels a bit rough and a bit thin compared to other sock yarns I have used over the years.

I was expecting a bit more for the price. I had better sock yarn for less money.

Repeat Pattern Socks

 I really enjoyed knitting this pattern from my new Japanese Pattern book so I did another pair.

This is a Merino wool and silk mix. I was expecting it to be a bit softer. It felt really sturdy for two so soft fibres. I wasn't expecting that. But it knitted well.

First Socks of 2021

 And the sock knitting carried on 😂

 A pair of Novita Nalle which was needed when you scroll down.
The weather was unusual wintery.

And a pair of Debbie Bliss Toast
Lovely sock yarn I have to say. Knits beautifully.
And I hope will keep my toes toasty. 😄

A shot out of our kitchen window. Brrrrr! 😬
