And now for some KAL progress! Some very little KAL progress.

Fifth Color!

Fifth Color!

When we last saw my Mishigami I had just started the 4th color, so I’m making more progress on the body of this sweater than I thought since I’m well into the 5th color now. Not too shabby! I’m hip shaping and will be finished with the body soon.

I’m still loving this sweater! I was worried that I would get a little sick of the stitch pattern but I’m still loving it – it’s so satisfying to finish a stripe section!

And yep! I’m still alone in my KAL. Though people have been feeling sorry for me and popping up to say hi, which is so sweet. Everyone is going to be SUPER jealous when I’m wearing my Mishigami out on the town!

When we last left off I had just finished my left Michigander Mitten…. and yep! That’s still where I’m at with them. I haven’t quite worked up the energy to cast on that second mitten. It’s not even second mitten syndrome! It’s just life getting in the way. But with the Nov 30th deadline looming I’ll be casting on for that second mitten this weekend I’m sure.

Another little project I would love to tease that I’m working on is my Cascade Coat from Grainline Studio!

Cascade Coat Progress!

After two FULL days of working – seriously like 2 8-10 hour days – I’ve got the shell of the coat together and it’s beautiful and insane! I’ve struggled through some parts of it, but it’s coming together and I’m pretty thrilled. I’ve dug out another big chunk of time to work on it later this week so hopefully I’ll have a coat soon since it’s threatening to actually be coat weather. More pics soon!

The Ultimate Fuzz Remover by Gleener – Review, Giveaway, and Coupon Code!

I sneaked this on my instagram last week, but I’m SO excited to share with you my review of The Ultimate Fuzz Remover by Gleener because, spoiler alert, it’s amazing.

What You Get!

What You Get!

Grabbed from the Gleener site, here is what you get when you order the Ultimate Fuzz Remover – 3 different edges that fit onto the tool with the lint remover and a bag to keep it all in. I got the fun yellow color called Sunny & Chere from their new Mod Squad collection of colors, which are all really fun!

So what is The Ultimate Fuzz Remover? Here is mine! It’s a pretty good sized tool with a small head on one end and a larger head on the other.

Interchangeable Edges

Interchangeable Edges

The small end is the lint remover end – it comes with 3 different interchangeable heads that click on for different fabrics. Here I’m using the serious big time wool remover!

Lint Brush

The other end has a standard lint brush feel to it that, according to the Gleener site, is a “handy lint brush to remove pet hair and lint from clothing and upholstery”. This is the second step in the process, so you use the small head first and finish with the lint remover for any leftover pesky lint balls.

My Axial!

My Axial!

So the reason I first reached out about the Ultimate Fuzz Remover was my Axial Cardigan, from last year’s fall Holla Knits Collection. As you can see it’s in rough shape! Because I basically wear it constantly.

One Half Fuzz Remover-ed!

I took the very serious wool head and Fuzz Remover-ed half of it – and LOOK at that PIC! I removed that huge fuzz ball from just half the sweater, and look at how amazing it looks compared to the other side! It’s like night and day.

All Done!

All Done!

When I went ahead and did the rest of it I got that huge ball of fuzz and look at that fabric!

It Looks Like a New Sweater!

It Looks Like a New Sweater!

It seriously looks like a totally new sweater. I was FLOORED by how well it worked – I hadn’t been able to get any of those pills off with any other product I used – I’ve got a standard electric shaver that didn’t touch it. I was about to take scissors to it! I’m so so happy with how amazing my Axial looks again.

At that point I just wanted to Ultimate Fuzz Remover everything in my house, so I pulled out my Block Island sweater that I had been wearing a lot of, which has some pills as you can see, but it wasn’t in any kind of dire circumstance like my Axial.

Just Kinda Fuzzy

Just Kinda Fuzzy

It was just generally kinda fuzzy.

I shaved it and it looks so sharp now! Look at that little pill ball!

So Sharp!

So Sharp!

You can really see here how crisp the colorwork looks, where before it was getting a little fuzzy around the edges. So amazing!

Gleener FURNiture Brush

Gleener FURniture Brush

Another fun tool I got was the Gleener FURniture Brush, which is just that! You use it on your furniture and it takes the pet hair away. With a dog and cat around there is just a lot of hair in my house. This attachment just wraps right around the lint remover end of your Ultimate Fuzz Remover and you’re ready to start removing hair from your furniture!

Velma's Stool

Velma’s Stool

We’ve got a stool that my cat Velma loves to sleep on – it’s right by the window and the heater! And this picture shows the stool actually pretty clean. We usually use those disposable lint rollers on it before we have a guest over. I hate using those because they are so wasteful, but they get the stool the cleanest. And, as you can see, not really that clean!

Like Holy Crap Clean

Like Holy Crap Clean

So CLEARLY the FURniture Brush absolutely KILLED the hair and fuzz on the stool – can you believe how clean it is?! It’s so amazing!

Obviously I love this product. It’s easily the best pill remover I’ve ever tried and the way the FURniture Brush works is just icing on the cake. I could seriously not recommend this product enough! You need one. You need to buy one for everyone you know.
