New Contest Starts Today







So what do you think of this dpn & circ holder? Pretty and so happy to help you organize your dpns and circulars too. Just right for a Valentine's gift. Or any day gift.

Before I made one for myself, I had a few dpns here and some more over there and some metal ones in a drawer. They were all over the place. Now I know where they all are, in one pretty place. A pleasure to look at open or closed. lol


On Valentine's Day, hubby and I will be married for 17 years. So to celebrate our day with all my friends, I'm having a contest. Here are the rules:
This contest starts today Jan.26, 2010 and ends on Feb.14, 2010. The prize is the dpn holder pictured above. It is worth $35. I'll announce the winner on Feb 15. If you would like to win you have to leave me your email address so I can reach you.

Thanks for posting the photo. Just last night I was frustrated at the lack or organisation in my dpns. I will be thinking seriously about making one.
Thanks also for the contest, a lovely idea.
Best wishes
Suzie

Congratulations on the upcomming anniversary. Hope you sweethearts do something fun to celebrate.

I have a large straight-needle holder somewhat like this & sure like the idea of a double-point needle holder. Yours is beautiful.

Lovely organizer, Patt. I have a similar one, but I need more than one! I'm following you and have signed up for your Yahoo group as well. I've just sent a contribution to the Avon walk in memory of a colleagues daughter who died last year of breast cancer at 32. I never met her but I know she was a devoted knitter so I am more than happy to contribute in her memory.
