What I Love Using- Sharing is Caring

So many times people ask me what I use to create my crochet projects, and what I use to create my videos. Some have even asked what my workspace looks like. So… since I strongly believe that sharing is caring I’ll list and link what I love using, my favorite products, materials to work with, and any special tools that I used to create my crochet projects.

Let’s start with my favorite crochet hooks:


I love Susan Bates Crochet Hooks, some of Susan Bate’s hooks have a little point at the tip, which makes it easy to go through tighter stitches.  I like both the metal and the plastic version.




I also like the Clover Hooks but I will admit if purchased as a set it can be a little investment. I just pick one up every time I see them on sale. I’ve been able to grow my set to almost completion.


Favorite Yarn

Oh, this is a tough one because I love so many different types of yarn like LionBrand,  Loops and Threads, Vanna’s’ Choice, and even some Red Heart, but I enjoy working with Bernat Blanket Yarn, for my blanket project. I like to purchase my yarn from box stores, such as Joann’s Fabric and Micheal’s. My favorite online yarn supplier is currently crochet.com.


Here are a few of my favorite novelty items:

Favorite Scissors

The type of scissors that you use with yarn is based on preference. Unlike fabric scissors which are usually made of sharp edges and carbon steel. All-purpose scissors which is what you can use to cut yarn go for what you like. I like using embroidery scissors as they are usually shorter and nicely sharp.

Favorite Tape Measurer

Tape Measurers are a convenient and necessary addition to your crochet kit. Just make sure it is a measuring tape that can be used on fabric. I like the novelty type to carry around but when I’m making garment-style pieces, I like the type that has a centimeter measurement and fractions.

Stitch Marker

Oh man, I learned this the hard way. All stitch markers are NOT made the same. I have fallen victim to just buying stitch markers as I see them but I will caution you; they are not all made from the same say and some can break easily. I like the Clover brand they are durable and hold up well through many projects.

Filming Equipment

Often I use my iPad and a tripod to film. The iPad is also perfect for on-the-go filming.

But I also use my Canon camera sometimes. I used this a lot when I first started recording. However, I recently purchased a new camera. I’m still on a learning curve but I do like the camera. It’s the Sony ZV-1F.  I still use my iPad and iPhone too, they work well with the iMovie editing software.


iPhone- I used my iPhone sometimes for in-store or on-the-go filming.


So I’ve been using the same microphone for a while now But once I save enough I will be upgrading to the Yeti Microphone.  The Yeti microphone has received awesome reviews and hopefully, soon, I will make the small investment to kick my tutorials up a notch.


I don’t use anything special for lighting. I find that natural daylight is the best. However, if I’m working late into the evening and I still need to film or photograph a project. I replaced my overhead lights with daylight bulbs.

Editing Software


I used to use a software called Filmora Wondershare for many, many years, before getting my Macbook Air, so while Filmora it’s not my favorite editing software. It worked great and it allowed me to move forward with my passion for learning, creating, and sharing. Wondershare was very useful in editing my video when I first started my Youtube channel.
