Congratulations Cheryl!

Hear Cheryl’s Story!

“I started knitting a few years ago so I would have something to do while riding cross country in our semi with my husband. I sew, smock, silk embroidery, tat and just love doing anything with my hands. I just recently taught myself how to crochet, and want to learn how to make beautiful throws or blankets like my grandmother and great aunts have in the past!!  I love all things old! I have 10 grandchildren and would love to make each one a blanket, so they will always have something made from me!!  I also have 2 boys in the military, one in the Air Force, one in the Army, and would love to make and donate lap blankets for men and women active/retired, to show that we care for what they have sacrificed for our country!!”

Congratulations to Phyllis DeFabritis! 

She is this weeks crochet hook winner!

“I LOVE Laurel Hill hooks…and customer service is the best. I learned to crochet when I was a little girl-forgot about it for a while-then picked it up a few years back as a stress reliever…the wood hooks are so much nicer on my hands. This REALLY made my day. Thank You.” 

We at Laurel Hill thank YOU! We can’t wait to choose next weeks winner! 

Hope you all are getting excited as well and have a wonderful week!

Congratulations to the first winner of the Laurel Hill Crochet Hook Contest,

Stephanie Sanders!  

Stephanie Sanders

Stephanie began knitting in April of last year, when she decided to head back to school for a second degree in biochemistry with a dream to attend medical school and become a pathologist. 
 
Stephanie has had Rheumatoid Arthritis for the past 12 years, and knitting has not only become a hobby during her off time from studying, but has become a tool to help improve her dexterity and ability to pick up objects. She hasn’t stopped knitting since! 
 
Congratulations Stephanie!

Happy Thursday! 

It’s almost the weekend! We should all be getting excited!

I wanted to share this fun project with you all. Now that I’m beginning to knit, I thought I should have a place to store all my items..I tend to misplace things easily…so this is the perfect item for me and I thought it would be a fun and useful item for you all too!

Hey Guys!

Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday!

I’m writing because I want to share some exciting news with you all!

So, as most of you know, I am the new intern at Laurel Hill and I am so happy to be working with such an amazing company and with all of you as well.

This past week, I realized that in order to fully immerse myself in my position, it only makes sense that I know what I’m talking about…right? I think it’s important that I understand the basics of crocheting so I’m better able to communicate and relate with you all. That said, I have decided to take up crocheting!

I think that this is an awesome opportunity for me to take on a new craft while being able to share my learning process along the way with you all, as well as be able to learn from you all throughout the process.

I can promise you my work will be far from perfect as I am at the beginner level, and if I’m being honest, even below that level if there’s such a thing…BUT I’m so excited to begin my first crocheting project. I will be posting photos of my process throughout the upcoming weeks and can’t wait to share them along with my thoughts, questions, concerns, struggles, and triumphs..hopefully!

My goal is to inspire at least one person in some way or another. Whether it be to begin crocheting as well or maybe even to realize that we are all human, and there is no such thing as perfection. I think the important thing is that trying something new, whatever it may be is a learning process for us all.

I look forward to sharing my steps along the way and I will also be posting some other project ideas thoughout July for all you knitters and crocheters out there!

Talk to you all soon and wish me good luck…I’ll need it!:)

I’m using a Laurel Hill Ebony Crochet Hook (size K). I’ve linked the photo to the Laurel Hill site in case you’re interested in looking/buying this tool!

Hi there Laurel Hill Friends!

I’m KC Bond and I am Laurel Hill’s newest intern! To get things started, I thought I’d share a little bit about who I am with you all.

I just finished my junior year at University of Oregon,  Imagewhich means  I can officially call myself a senior in college! I’m majoring in Public Relations and Spanish. As far as what I want to do with my life…well, I’ll let you know when I figure that part out. I’m still in the midst of finding where my true passions lie and what I want to do moving forward. I’m hopeful this next year will help narrow my path. 

Although I only have one year left of school, I couldn’t be more excited to spend this time getting to know you all and begin sharing fun and exciting ideas and projects for beginners to advanced knitters and crocheters.

My goal is to provide each and everyone of you with creative and fun project ideas, inspiring stories and food for thought. 

I would love to hear all your ideas and thoughts as well, so comments are always welcome!

Or you can shoot me an email at bond@uoregon.edu 

I hope you all have a beautiful Tuesday and I’ll be talking with you soon!:)
