LoveCrafts? I’ve got a discount code for you!

A while back I did a profile on LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet. Well, a lot has changed with them lately, so I figured it was time to take another look at one of my favourite online craft shops. (Keep reading for a special discount code!)

LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet have combined together, added a dash of needlework (yes, cross stitch!!), and are now LoveCrafts. You can still find all the great yarns and patterns that used to be part of LoveKnitting and LoveCrochet, and they also now carry DMC floss, cross stitch kits, and lots of other goodies. And, as I understand it, more needlework is on the way.

Lost Souls Shawl

The yarn selection of LoveCrafts is excellent. I’m crocheting up a positively spooky Lost Souls Shawl using a ball of Scheepjes Whirl in Liqourice Yumyum that I bought from LoveCrafts. How awesome will this shawl look with tessellating skulls ranging from black at the bottom to white along the top? (You can get my favourite crochet hooks from LoveCrafts too–Clover Soft Touch.)

I’m probably most excited about the new needlework section. Cross stitch is my first love, and I’m always so happy to find new places to buy awesome cross stitch kits. LoveCrafts carries tons of DMC kits, which can be hard to find in North America. I’ve already added a couple of kits to my cart in anticipation of my next order.

And, speaking of orders, LoveCrafts has given me a discount code to share with all of you. From now until August 31st, 2019, use the code LOTUS15 to receive 15% off on all orders of $10+. Make sure to add the code when you check out to get your discount. And, be sure to come back here and let me know what you bought. Yarn, notions, a cross stitch kit?

While you are visiting LoveCrafts, be sure to take a look at the Inspiration tabs in each section. They are full of tutorials, round-up articles, and lots more. LoveCrafts is much more than an online craft shop. It is a crafty community full of ideas.

(LoveCrafts graciously supplied a discount code, but they did not pay me for this post in any way. I do not receive any commission from your purchases. All opinions in this post are my own.)

Review – LoveKnitting.com

I am always so delighted to discover a new online knitting shop, and I’m even more delighted when it actually goes out of its way to make my life easier. LoveKnitting.com is more than an online shop stocked with 100s of different types of yarns and more tools than you’ll ever need, it is also a pattern library, a place to record projects, and a vibrant online community.

Note: This post is sponsored by LoveKnitting.com but all content and opinions are my own. And be sure to keep reading for a discount code.

LoveKnitting.com landing page. Look! A sale!

LoveKnitting.com, and its sister site LoveCrochet.com, are at heart an extremely well-stocked yarn shop. They carry yarn brands from around the word, ranging from Bernat to Wool and the Gang and just about everything in between. (I even found some of my favourite, now discontinued, sock yarn and you bet I stocked up on it!) LoveKnitting also has a couple of house brands, like Main Street Yarns, which features some of the lovest acyrlic yarn I’ve ever used, and Paint Box Yarns, who’s focus is amazing colours in a range of weights and fibres. I’ve got my hands on a few different brands and I’ll be posting about them in the coming weeks. (Check my Instagram for some sneak peeks!)

So many tools!

LoveKniting also carries HiyaHiya and KnitPro needles, bags, stitch markers, etc. Looking for some Denise interchangable hooks or some Addi Sock Wonder needles? They’ve got ’em.

Some of my collections. I’m just getting started!

The coolest thing about LoveKnitting/LoveCrochet is the profile and collections capability. Sign up for an account and then setup your profile. Now you can save anything you see on the site into a collection. I’m collecting together patterns, tools, and yarns as a way to help me remember what I’d want to make, or just what I love and wish I could make!

You can even follow other LoveKnitting members and designers, so you can keep any eye on their latest collections or projects.

Adding yarn to one of my projects.

Projects, I say? I do! LoveKnitting has a great system for allowing you to enter projects, complete with yarns, patterns, tools used, notes, etc. The system is very robust and connects with LoveKnitting’s huge database of yarns and patterns.

Patterns for days!

Speaking of patterns, LoveKnitting/LoveCrochet has a huge database of patterns, both paid and free. You can use filters to look for exactly what you want to make next, then click through and buy the yarn, needles, and other tools all on one site. Super convenient!

If you’d like to give LoveKnitting a try (and I hope you do), they are offering my readers a discount code. Just enter WELCOME15 to get 15% off your first order on all regular priced yarn. (And be sure to let me know what you order!)

Also, be sure to look for me and give my profile a follow. I’ll follow back. 😉
