The Knitting Daddy blog and Knitting Daddy Designs is just one guy behind a computer with a bunch of knitting needles and yarn. I don’t have any official sponsors.
However, I have signed up with several affiliate programs and use affiliate links in my content whenever I remember to do so. Be aware that when you click a link to somewhere that allows you to buy something, there’s a possibility that I’ll be getting a commission from your sale. No one pays me to write about things in a certain way, so when you read an opinion on the Knitting Daddy blog, you can rest assured that it’s my own opinion. Most of the things you read are going to be nice, because I tend to focus on writing about things that make me happy, and downplaying things that don’t.
If you use any of the merchants where I have an affiliate relationship, I sure would appreciate it if you visited their site by clicking on a link on Knitting Daddy first. Here’s a run-down of the affiliate programs with which I work.
Craftsy is pretty awesome. They have tons of classes in all sorts of creative areas. I’ve been their customer for much longer than I’ve been in their affiliate program. Obviously, I’ve focused on their knitting classes, but they also have classes for crochet, sewing, photography, cooking, and pretty much any creative art. I highly recommend them. Click the banner above to check out the classes they offer, knowing that when you purchase a class from them, I’ll be receiving a commission. If you’re looking for a class recommendation, I love Susan B. Anderson’s classes, and the Wee Ones-Knit Toys is a great one try first.
One of the coolest publishers in the knitting world is Cooperative Press. I’ve paid for several of their products in my own library, and I’m thrilled to be a member of their affiliate program. If you’re in the market for a Cooperative Press book, click the banner above to start your shopping. You’ll get a great book, and I’ll get a commission. Everyone wins. Also, if you don’t already have a copy of Lara Neel’s Sock Architecture, you really need to go ahead and get that one now.
Yeah, pretty much everyone shops at Amazon for something. They started out as books, but have grown to be pretty much everything now. I get a subscription box from them every month full of household supplies like coffee, vitamins, paper towels, and dishwasher detergent. If I link to a product at Amazon, chances are, it will be with an affiliate link. After you click that link, anything you buy at Amazon will generate a commission for me. Your price doesn’t change, and it helps me cover the expenses for the blog. So if you’re about to purchase a high-ticket item from Amazon, please click the banner above first and send a little referral love my way. If you’re not sure what to get and really want to throw some love my way, feel free to pick up this Charles Kid Nichols Autographed Baseball and call me up for a game of “catch.”
