Congratulations! Please contact me at email@example.com to claim your prizes.
This past week has been pretty mellow and I've gotten quite a bit of knitting done. Yay! However, I still have way too many projects that I want to start and finish over the next few months. There's also a couple deadline projects to complete like the fingerless gauntlets I'm knitting for Linsay and her friend (sorry, Linsay, for taking my sweet time on those). And, I have a baby shower coming up in October (date to be determined). Plus, I have my Leavenworth birthday weekend coming up and I need some new and pretty knits to wear of course. So, send all your knitting mojo my way, PLEASE!
Well, onto the good stuff... this week we have a fun giveaway and one that will help you get organized. I love organizational pieces - whether it's in my home life, work life, or knitting life - I think structured and tidy workspaces increase productivity and creativity. Now, don't get me wrong, I can be known to be messy too, but I think great functional pieces like this week's sponsor has created are so wonderful to have. Makes things so much easier to stay organized.
So, meet Brenda of GoodStuffCrafts and her brand new interchangeable needle organizer:
This is how Brenda describes her needle cases:
"Ideal for those interchangeable needle tips or your crochet hooks, this handmade needle organizer cleverly recycles an old used book cover!
There are spaces for your needle tips (e.g. Knitpicks or Denise), DPNs, or crochet hooks, a see-through pocket for the cables, and a second cloth pocket (closes securely with Velcro), for stitch markers or other small accessories. Makes it so easy to find what you're looking for!
There is a lining of soft cotton T-shirt material under the fabric to provide padding, and the whole thing is hand-stitched by me here in the USA. The elastic will hold all your items securely. Up to 18 pairs of needle tips (depending on size) can fit here, plus several fixed circular needles and cables in the pouch.
The needle case closes with an elastic loop around a matching vintage button.
Dimensions : approximately 9 1/2 x 6 1/4 x 7/8"
Handcrafted in a smoke and pet free home."
Here are some close ups:
Thank you, Brenda, for joining us on YOTH this week! Here are the TWO wonderful prizes Brenda has put together for you...
