There’s nothing more comforting than a snuggly homemade afghan… except for a scented snuggly homemade afghan. With Handicrafter Scents Cotton Yarn, the long process of knitting or crocheting an afghan is more enjoyable with light, fresh scents wafting around you as you craft. Choose from a variety of scents, such as Aloe Vera, Camomile, Lavender and Rose Petal. You’ll also love how comforting the soft scents are when you cuddle up with a finished craft.

As we leave winter behind and approach spring, we’re all starting to get fevers! There’s the literal fever of illness from the winter chill, the itch of cabin fever from being indoors for so many months, and, worst of all, shopping fever. Winter months are all about giving back—to your friends, family and community. But months later, we can’t help but want to indulge ourselves just a little bit. Luckily, Cut Rate Crafts has a variety of products that will make you feel luxurious without the guilt of an enormous price tag.
There’s nothing wrong with treating yourself every once and a while! But it feels even better when you can do so affordably. That’s why we love Glitz Mohair Yarn in Cashmere. This glitzy acrylic-mohair-polyester blend yarn is even more glamorous because of its expensive-looking cashmere color. But the price is anything but expensive! You can knit or crochet fashionable gloves, scarves or hats with this yarn for only $8.49!
If you’re all about making a statement at an affordable price, then you should indulge in Starry Night Yarn in Treasure Cove. This beautiful skein of rich blues and greens has a touch of sparkle for an expensive feel, but you can enjoy it without any guilt! Don’t buy an expensive cruise to the Bahamas when you could just knit or crochet a cute accessory with a skein that reminds you of the ocean. Bring the tropics to you for only $4.07.
Soft, snuggly blankets can be pricey, especially when bought from high-end department stores. If you want an impossibly soft throw or shawl without the outrageous price, then check out Alpaca Natural Blends Yarn in Indigo. The natural alpaca and acrylic blend is the perfect inexpensive gift to give yourself for enduring a long winter season! This product is available for only $4.67.
What is your favorite way to treat yourself?

Nothing is more tempting than making the umpteenth trip to a craft store to purchase one more skein of yarn. Or four. Or twenty. And we don’t blame you! With so many colors and textures, it’s nearly impossible to resist the urge to blow your tax return dollars on restocking your craft room. But we guarantee that your craft room is a treasure trove of scrap yarn that would be perfect for crafty crochet projects. With a little innovation and the right crochet supplies from Cut Rate Crafts, you can make thrifty crochet creations that will clear space in your craft room without clearing your wallet.
It’s painful to throw away pretty pieces of yarn, but a craft room can quickly transform into a landfill when scraps are kept too long. Instead of letting yarn waste away in corners or in the trash, find a project that utilizes the remnants of your favorite skeins. Try the Crochet Granny Scrapghan. This adorable afghan featured on AllFreeCrochet.com is the ultimate stashbuster! Perfect for using up your entire stock of scraps, this blanket embraces the eclectic look. You’ll want to collect all of your random bits and pieces so they’re handy, which is why we recommend the JanetBasket Large Aluminum Frame Bag for this project. This lightweight collapsible tote is perfect for both storage and transportation. Bust your stockpile on the go with this contemporary and convenient bag! Available for only $23.79.
If your stash is too small to create a blanket, try the Stashbuster Pencil Case. Cute and clever, this easy pattern gives a special personalized touch to school supplies. Use the Yarn Cutter With Lanyard to make cutting different types of yarn easier. This neat tool allows you to deplete your stash safely and efficiently. The blade openings fit yarn, not fingers, and the lanyard makes crochet possible on the bus, train or in waiting rooms. Available for only $5.91.
Scarves are a crochet classic, and nothing warms the heart like a cozy accessory that uses up spare scraps! The Scrap Scarf Infinity Collar pattern is a trendy cowl that makes random colors and mismatched patterns look cool. To help make this pattern, you’ll want the right hooks that will accommodate different weights of yarn. Try the Getaway Soft Touch Crochet Hooks gift set. This handy set comes with 8 ergonomic crochet hooks in sizes C-J. They feature an ABS resin handle and aluminum hooks. Available for only $48.88.
