      This I wouldn’t know. You could try calling Yarnspirations through their website contact page to ask. They make it, so they would probably know.

    Thank you Mikey.
    Your video tutorials are amazing. Thank you for sharing with us all. You have turned me into a yarn and hook addict. Thank you. I am now selling my work and it is all down to you teaching me. The only downside is that I have become a yarnaholic lol!!! Looking forward to many more years of being a crochet crowd member.

    My six year old niece asked me to teach her to crochet but we live 700 miles apart. I went to your site just to see what you suggested for yarn and hook for beginners. I will be mailing her her first set of crochets hooks and a gift card for yarn this Christmas and a note for your website. Thank you for helping me help my niece learn how to crochet. You are a wonderful teacher.

    Hi Mikey! i have tried for so long to learn how to crochet. Always got frustrated and put the yarn down. Thank god for your left handed tulorials.My biggest problem is not understanding the patteren language.But through watching your video’s i have mastered some afghans. So far i think i have mastered the Baby Star Blanket witch i’m very proud of .
    Thank you so much.

    I have crocheted for several years. I was hesitant to try a video tutorial for a pattern I was having a problem with. Mikey made it very easy to understand. I am going to start over and take some lessons with his videos now to improve my skills.

    I’ll check the workshops out. Octavia the Octopus caught my eye and made me want to crochet again, I haven’t crocheted since I was a youngster and at a relatives. I feel like starting with Octavia, but I don’t think that I should seeing that I’m a beginner. What do you recommend?

    • October 11, 2015 at 5:54 pm

      Hi Jeanne,
      You should be able to crochet Octavia in no time. Mikey’s videos are easy to follow and when I first started I would always pause the video and back it up until I got it. He always is giving pointers to make it easier. Have fun! Grab your hook and get hooking!

    I am a 72 yr old woman who is determined to learn crochet. For the first time today I made a chain stitch and then crocheted into it and counted my stitches…I actually had 16 stitches that matched my chain!! This is a landmark moment in my crochet experience. I know that sounds crazy to you, but I have been trying Tunisian crochet and could never match my stitches. I love your tutorials on Tunisian also but have had the same problem ending up with the correct amount of stitches. I feel I am finally on my way thanks to you, Mikey! Love your encouragement and enthusiasm. Thanks for sharing your talent with others! Jayne Swanson Tulsa Ok
