SLUG Product Review

Only 8 more days until Craft Lake City in Salt Lake! My product review came out in Salt Lake Underground (SLUG) magazine today. Check it out:

Sweet Kiwi Crochet
Pink Sock Monkey Hat

One huge perk of being a parent is that you get to dress your kids up in crazy outfits all the time. I have most recently been glad to throw one of Kandice Oster’s crochet hats into the clothing mix. Through her company, Sweet Kiwi Crochet, Oster sells a wide array of handmade crochet hats and beanies, which resemble monkeys, birds, bees and other designs that are great for kids. The designs are also available in a variety of colors. My daughter, Alice, was stoked to try on her very own monkey hat. The hat itself is comfortable and non-restricting, while appearing to be very well crafted and durable. Alice is a big fan of the design, and often pulls the hat off to have long chats with the monkey. Oster also makes hats in adult sizes and styles as well as other accessories such as crochet beards, flower headbands, and more. Make sure to check out pictures and ordering information at, and check out her booth at Craft Lake City. ­–Ben Trentelman
