You will get 4 total skeins in various colors.

Mothers Day Giveaway - CreatiKnit.comYou will win either the group on the left or right.

furls, the masterminds behind the most beautiful and unique crochet hooks, is here to offer 2 of you a truly special treat!

As a tribute to Mother’s Day, Furls will be giving you one of their newly released Holly Hooks!!

If you haven’t seen these yet…oh boy!  Not only are they lighter than bamboo, but they are gorgeous.  Each one, hand carved to ergonomically fit the natural curves of your hand when you grip.

Mothers Day Giveaway -

1) Its color: 
This is one of the only truly white woods on earth. It’s naturally blanched by mother nature.
2) Its lightness: 
It’s great to hold a hook that is so light and warm. Lighter than bamboo and – in the Furls shape – with more area to warm your hand, a Holly hook makes for an incredible crocheting experience.
3) Its result: 
This is one of those hooks that makes crocheters loosen their gauge because the hook, even when its planted firmly in your hand, feels like a whimsical tool. Crochet becomes a bit more of a dance like this.

Mothers Day Giveaway - CreatiKnit.comThey have once again, created another spectacular crochet hook that is unlike any other!

And…2 of you are going to get one!!  If you’re in the U.S or Canada, you get FREE shipping, as well as guaranteed delivery by Mother’s Day when ordered by May 4th!

Available in sizes: E (3.50mm) – L (7.00mm)…and you get to pick your size in these as well! 😉

If you don’t want to wait and take your chances, you can order one by clicking the link below…but hurry, they are going fast!


Guess what?!

Furls is going to be even more generous to you…

They are also going to give you a CANDY SHOP HOOK!!!

Now I will leave you with what came across on the internet about women/Moms…it really touched my heart and I hope it inspires you and men who have a special woman in their life.

Angela from



When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day
An angel came by and said: “Why spend so much time on that one?”
And the Lord answered: “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her ?”
“She must be washable, but not made of plastic, have more than 200 moving parts which all must be replaceable and she must function on all kinds of food, she must be able to embrace several kids at the same time, give a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken hearth and she must do all this with only two hands”.
The angel was impressed.

“Just two hands….impossible!“

And this is the standard model?!

“Too much work for one day….wait until tomorrow and then complete her“.
“I will not”, said the Lord. “I am so close to complete this creation, which will be the favourite of my heart”.

“She cures herself when sick and she can work 18 hours a day”.

The angel came nearer and touched the woman.
“But you have made her so soft, Lord” “She is soft”, said the Lord, “But I have also made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.“

“Can she think?” the angel asked. 

The Lord answered:
“Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.”
The angel touched the womans cheek….
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her.” 

“She is not leaking….it’s a tear” the Lord corrected the angel

“What’s it for?” asked the angel.
And the Lord said:
“Tears are her way of expressing grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”
This made a big impression on the angel; “Lord, you are genius. You thought of everything.

The woman is indeed marvellous!”
Indeed she is!

Woman has strengths that amazes man.

She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when feeling like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying, cries when she is happy and laughs when she is afraid.
She fights for what she believes in.
Stand up against injustice.
She doesn’t take “no” for an answer, when she can see a better solution.

She gives herself so her family can thrive.

She takes her friend to the doctor if she is afraid.
Her love is unconditional.
She cries when her kids are victorious.

She is happy when her friends do well.
She is glad when she hears of a birth or a wedding.
Her heart is broken when a next of kin or friend dies.
But she finds the strength to get on with life.

She knows that a kiss and a hug can heal a broken heart.
There is only one thing wrong with her
We forget what she is worth.

    i pinned a crochet pattern as my fav but honestly i loved many of the adult knit ones, but i dont know how to knit yet!! i tried it one a couple weeks ago, but only have 2 very skinny double pointed like the width of dry spaghetti needles so it was extremely frustrating, but i will try again!! i want to learn it so bad! so again winning all those goodies would be so wonderful! i dont even have a hook gauge thing, so i have no idea the size of a few hooks that were gifted to me! so i could use all of this lol :D!!! good luck to all but i will have my fingers and toes crossed for me lol :D! no offense. and thanks for sharing the poem. gotta save that! :'( <3
