Giveaway Day


Hi there and welcome to my crafting blog!  I'm so excited to be a part of giveaway day this time around, and am looking forward to checking out all the great blogs, sites and shops out there!  
  
Today, I'm giving away a small knitting needle/crochet hook holder!  I use the Beta version of this guy all the time for my own gear, and hope you will find it useful.  This one has 21 pockets for straight needles or hooks, and three wide pockets that can be used for circular needles or afghan hooks.  It also has a little Velcro-closure pocket that can be used for stitch markers or whatnot!  

The flap folds over and it ties closed.  

This baby measures in at about 10"X 15".  Folded, it's about 10" X 5.5".  

I'd be happy to ship internationally.  

To win this fine made-by-me prize, please comment below and let me know what's currently on your needles or hook, (or what's up next if you don't have anything going)!  

I'll keep the giveaway open through Sunday, May 31st.  

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!  Thanks for playing.

Lynn said...

I have a sock about 3/4 finished. Have only ever knitted dish cloths and scarves so this is a new adventure for me.

LizA. said...

I SO need this. I have knitting needles all over the house. Whenever I want to start a new project I first have to go on a hunt for the needles!

Princess Of Pink said...

I am crocheting a lovely off white Victorian RETICULE right now. Very dainty and adorable ♥

Meadow said...

Sadly, nothing. Maybe if I had a cute holder...

marie*jolie said...

It's probably easier to say how many empty needles I have, as I have WAY too many WIP's at the moment. I'm just casting on a sweater for my oldest son (that I'm designing), but also have a fun pair of chevron socks on my new little HiyaHiya tiny circular... and many others. I'd love to win! Thanks for the chance. leafygreenes at gmail dot com

Becky said...

Thanks for stopping by my giveaway earlier today!

Currently I have a teal blue skirt in the round and a white shrug on needles.

I get bored and have to switch projects.

DangAndBlast! said...

Never used one ... looks practical. Right now all I have (that I'm actually working on -- abandoned projects don't count) is a baby sweater made out of sock yarn -- looks like baby-girl camo, good for a hunter's baby!

Bowlby said...

Oh, I need this! Nothing on my needles right now. Up next: I'd like to knit a stuffed bee for my son. Anyone have a pattern?

M said...

This is great! Exactly what I need to organize my needles & hooks! Currently on my needles is a sock that I am knitting as a test knitting for a design in a new book - it is very exciting!

wayfarer said...

Very cute. Right now is a strawberry hat for my baby daughter and a sweater for my boy. I always have a dishcloth going too.

moorefamlily said...

Next up: a spring sweater for my baby girl.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Julianne said...

Ugh. I so need one of these, my needles are spread about the house, they live where I left them and they really need a home!

Atm, a Diagonal Lace Scarf which I am trying to get finished in time for my mum's Birthday!

Heather said...

Hats are on my hook. Thanks!

I am currently working on a knit lace shawl. Would love the case.
Thanks

drugchemist said...

Right now, I am making a baby blanket. I justify watching TV by being productive!

Deb said...

Cute needle holder! I'm not a brilliant knitter so I'm currently still struggling to finish scarves for my two little ones (they always pick the most difficult to use yarn).

Kim Meier said...

I just finished a crochet flowerpot cover and I'm moving on to a bathmat! But the bathmat is very difficult because I haven't quite decided on the design and I keep making new prototypes, so it's not making much progress.. in the meantime, some dishtowels to keep my hands busy.

Violaine said...

Greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaatttt needle holder ! First one I see of this kind!

My hooks are working on... flowers for lordemesmains.canalblog.com (she's making wonderful jewellery with them)
and a by round-chick as chris1000.canalblog.com explains in her book!

Thanks in advance!

Michele said...

The needle holder is great. I made one for my dps but not for my circulars.

On my needles? Socks, always socks, especially in the summer

tammiemarie said...

I really need one of these, my needles are a jumbled mess. I just finished a knit washcloth, and I also have a baby blanket and a scarf on other needles!

Lola Jo said...

Ah! I love this! I've been meaning to make a needle case for so long and have never gotten around to it. Right now I have what I'm calling my eternal sweater on my needles. I've been working on this thing for two YEARS now and can't seem to get it finished.

Thistle Cove Farm said...

Love your great little needle holder; you're very talented!

Paul Thompson said...

A cowl for a friend that is moving north!

Mama said...

Now this is beautiful and something I could really use. My needles are overflowing everywhere! I'm in between projects right now -- I just finished a Mother Bear toy for the Toy Society, and I keep saying that I really am going to make something for myself soon. Really. I am. Soon.

Gretchen said...

I need a little case like this especially for traveling this summer. I like to bring my knitting along when we are on the road, and my needles are forever poking holes in the plastic bags I shove them in ;) I am currently knitting a pair of socks for the husband for our anniversary.

klaudia said...

Love the crochet case:)
On my hook at the moment I have a blanket for summer:)
Thank you for the giveaway!

Misty.Creek said...

I'm trying to finish hooking a Shaken Not Stirred Wrap!

Wouldn't they both love a place to sleep when their finish their current tasks!?

Thanks for a chance to win! :)

Super Fun Mama said...

Nothing is on mine. I've never knitted but want to learn. This would kinda be a spark to get me going in that direction.

Lutya said...

Right now on my crochet hooks is a 100% bamboo yarn summer tank top for myself. It's my second clothing piece ever! thanks!

Deanna said...

my hook is sitting on a book - I have no idea how to crochet and I'm trying to learn - and a ball of yarn is sitting there too

Megs said...

On my needles . . .
a sweater for me
a baby blanket for a friend (good GRIEF they are ALL pregnant!)
a blanket for me (too hot to work on during the summer)

JBear said...

Ooh! I love that needle holder! I'm a novice knitter but I plan to knit a mobius scarf... hopefully before the cold weather actually gets here unlike the last scarf I made.

Lilly said...

I have a makeup bag on my needles. I just need to finish it.
Thanks a lot for this great giveaway! I would love to win this adorable needle holder!

KBraden said...

On my needles is a dish cloth and a baby blanket.

zees5 said...

I am forever misplacing needles. I have a purse on my crochet hook! And many UFO's ugh!

free indeed said...

I've got a first pair of socks I started out of repurposed yarn from a pair of hubbies wool socks, but it isn't going so well, I think I'm doing the heel wrong...I may try using different sock wool and try another pattern. My hook currently has a hex project going...it's been sitting in a closet for 12 years maybe? I'm half done and would love to finish it.

marzy dotes said...

I love this holder. I am currently crocheting a granny square afghan for my brother in law who got married over the weekend.

Sara said...

Love the needle holder...
On needles now: socks!!!

susan marie designs said...

Oh this is beautiful!! This would be for my sister, who just started learning to knit and loves it. Last time we spoke she was working on a scarf. It would be perfect for her birthday in 2 weeks!

thanks for the generous giveaway! ❤

bldrnrpdx said...

I've got two hats and a tank top currently in the crochet pile, with plans for three or four drawstring bags. Here's a post with one of my favorite hats: http://bldrnrpdx.livejournal.com/128657.html

Jerri said...

I started a baby sweater with Poems yarn and 4" into it, I found my third knot! I'm disappointed and don't want to continue.

Little Lady Cakes said...

Currently on my needles is a scarf I began to knit when I was pregnant and on bedrest.

Well, it's been a year since, but I'm positively sure that if I win this I would finish it! :)

Dan and Karen said...

I would love this! I am always looking for my crochet hoooks. I am currently working on a baby hat with a flower and a crochet edge around a flannel baby blanket.

MamáChanga said...

Off to the sidelines (once I get over the idea of it being too hot) is a project for a wee little one born this past month to a dear friend of mine!

Hugs & Blessings!

Stephanie and Carlos said...

I am going to learn to crochet and you just showed me need some where to store my needles!!! But my 8 year old girl is currently knitting a puncho... or so she tells me!! We're having a give away too!!

xo Steph

Ali said...

This is lovely - I need one of these! I have just finished off a jumper for my boy (I started it in July...!) which I'm so pleased (relieved!) about now that winter is on it's way here :)
Thanks for the opportunity

susan said...

I'm a beginner knitter, so my needles hold the makings of a lovely pink scarf. Love the needle holder.

mandapanda said...

I don't actually knit or crochet! lol
My Mum does though and she just loves this case, so I'm commenting on her behalf. Currently on her needles is a scarf for my brother, who has recently moved to a much colder state, and next on the agenda is a matching scarf for his girlfriend. Sweet huh?!

affectioknit said...

Wow! What a great giveaway - Thanks! I'm currently finishing up an afghan for my niece and a pair of diagonal rib socks for me...

fieryone said...

This would be a great gift for my mom, count me in!

Jules @ MoonCat Farms said...

What a great prize! I just started crocheting again.

My mom tried to teach me when I was a kid & all I ever managed was a chain stitch about 2 miles long! She started teaching me again a few months ago & I am loving it.. So I am working on some toys for my cats. They are having a blast with all of my trials & lots of errors!

Thank you for entering me in your drawing. (My crochet hooks are (I'm almost embarassed to admit) in a baggie.)

Leigh said...

Nothing on the hook yet because I don't know how! :D But my mom has promised to teach my to crochet when I visit her this summer, so this would make a great thank you gift for her!

QuiltChick said...

on my needles I have two projects, a baby blanket and a dishcloth! Thanks!

Deb said...

Currently I am knitting a purse for my niece. Thanks for the giveaway.

VickiT said...

Ooh I LOVE this prize. I have to admit that I can't answer your question since I do not crochet or knit. Some day I'd love to relearn again. My Mom taught me years ago. BUT, I have a very good friend who does both and she just finished a crocheted filet wedding sampler for a couple who are getting married and it's gorgeous. I'd love to win this prize to send to her as a gift. She would just love this.

e4e823l said...

Very nice needle holder.
I am working on clothes hanger covers which I crochet. Seems like everyone I know want some to keep away those mouse ears from clothing. Sarah e4e823l@yahoo.com

Bonnita said...

Needle holder is great, I have either hats or shawls on my needles right now.

roseread said...

Oof...currently I have two shrugs (Lacy hug me tight & shetland shorty), two pairs of socks (BFF socks & hedgerow socks) one plain scarf, one lacy scarf, and a giant afghan all on the needles. Well, all on different needles.

Mama Lusco said...

How great! I'm working on hex-shaped granny squares for a summer bag. Thanks for the giveaway. I can be reached thru my blog: www.luscofamily.blogspot.com.

The Retired Mama said...

I am right now crocheting a doll blanket to match the baby blanket I just finished. I then plan to start some vintage looking hot pads.

Renee said...

Cute needle holder. My poor straits have no home and end up scattered around the house.

Currently on needles, I have
A knitted wire bracelet, a mitered blanket, my very first sock, a baby blanket, and a scarf just waiting on a bind off.

And on hooks, I have a wire pendant and the start of a granny square afghan.

JBalloon said...

I definitely am in need of one of these! I always am hunting for my crochet hooks after they have fallen out of the open case I have. Right now I am working on designing a crochet dress!

Ginny said...

I need to do legwarmers for my daughters dance classes!

Bec Clarke said...

I love to crochet more than knit. I am working up a set of fingerless mittens in crochet as I have just made some in knit. Thanks for joining my PIF and all my giveaways too. Lucky you being a Yoga teacher, we don't live close enough to town for me to even attend a class.

Kitty Boo Boo said...

Oh ... my needles have the plastic they came in on them :( ... I need something like this to drag it all out and get motivated to start that beanie!

Carolyn said...

I am currently working on a sweater for myself. It's a sundayknits.com sweater. Really beautiful...but really tiny needles. It's slow going!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Peg said...

How wonderful and so needed! I've really enjoyed reading your posts! On my needles now are my first pair of socks (don't know why I dreaded them!) and a lace shawl for my neighbor.

A Joyful Chaos said...

Right now on my needles there is a scarf/hat combination.
My hooks are empty right now.

Emily said...

I've got a dishcloth on my needles at the moment... thanks for the giveaway!

miss aine said...

What a cute needle holder. Currently on my needles are my first sock (ever - so nervous), a top that I'm going to attach a fabric skirt to to make a dress, and a dress-up doll that will be one of my own patterns.
And many more projects already on needles in my head!

Sandra Schwab said...

Robyn, your needle holder looks wonderful (and it's made with floral fabric! I love, love, love floral patterns!!!)

I'm a sort of newbie crafter as I haven't done any kind of needlework for ... uh ... almost twenty years. But last weekend I rediscovered the joys of working with needle and thread, and at the moment I'm embroidering a tablecloth (and yes, there are flowers involved *g*).

Best wishes from Germany,
Sandy

Karen said...

Oh, I have a big old box of needles and hooks this would be perfect for! Thank you for a chance to enter!

momma rae said...

i so need one of these. currently on the needles is a little gnome for my baby. thanks for the opportunity!

Ali said...

Oh, this is fantastic. I really need a needle/hook case! Currently, I'm crocheting pink and white squares for a blanket for my next daughter. I'm also knitty a rather fuzzy scarf for my mom.

Deborah said...

Love your needle holder! Currenlty on my needles is a minimalist cardigan for me, two fish hats 'dead or alive'(fins to do) from Knitty for my two boys and two K1 Below scarves, adapted for my boys, so they are reversible!

Jasmine said...

on my needle is a yellow speckled thread. It's just a cheap one I'm using to experiment with.

cheekypoet said...

I don't have a needle holder so yours will come in very useful.

My current project is a soft toy which i will be giving away as part of blog 'the toy society'

cheekypoet(at)hotmail(dot)com

Annwen said...

I definetely need one of these! on my hook right now is some crochet dishcloths.....as for my needles I have some half finished baby sweaters (2) but I plan to cast on for a third one this evening!

DiSailsToo said...

I don't knit or crochet - I'd LOVE to learn, but right now am concentrating on sewing. My mother, however, does both. She is currently working on a baby blanket for a great-grandchild and an afghan for me. She is ALWAYS misplacing her needles and hooks and this would be the PERFECT GIFT for her! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

corvustristis said...

I would put that to such good use. Thanks so much for the chance!

Julia Marie said...

I've just started knitting - I'm working on a lightweight scarf. Love your holder!

Great needle holder. I'm currently working on a pair of socks on double pointed needles.

Amy Godinez said...
