For You: A Giveaway

Posted on

We think these bags are the best and we want to share them with you!  So, we're giving away 5 Envirosax bags.              They make a perfect knitting bag because they're so light weight and they're stylin' too.  They're also good for things like gym clothes, groceries, a purse, camera bag, beach bag, or gift bag. If you need any more ideas for this bag than that -- then you don't need this bag! Here's one of mine (I have several). Here's what I keep in the bag Since this is a knitting blog, we'll make this giveaway knitting related and throw in a special prize for one of the lucky 5 to win a bag.  One of you will also win a set of 4 dishcloths knitted by yours truly. These dishcloths are called "Grandma's Favorite"  It's a free pattern and it doesn't get any easier than this.  To all of you saying you want to try knitting -- this is a quick project for you to start with!  I love the name too because they do remind me of my Grandma. She makes them often.   When I was getting married she gave me a few for a bridal shower gift. I use them everyday.       So leave us a comment and tell us who taught you to knit? Grandma? Mother? Friend? If you don't knit, that's OK too. Just leave a comment and tell us what your plans are this weekend -  I'll be making dessert... We'll pick a winner on Tuesday!

    I learned to knit from my grandmother and the first items I made looked like those dish clothes but then we stitched parts together and they became slippers. I think I was probably 10 years old at that time. I remember my grandmother making a cream colored afghan with roses cross stitched on the knit pattern. I guess that was the thing to do then, because my great aunt was doing the same thing.

    Jill told me about your blog. Very inspiring! It makes me want to pick up my knitting again, but I need to be studying. Can’t wait until Christmas break!!!

    I learned to knit from Sarah Zahner, Jane Moser and YouTube. I am not sure what I would do with out all of them!

    Kara you’ve inspired me! I looked up the washcloth pattern and went to work. After casting on 15 different times I finally got up to 24 stiches on my needle before I made a mistake too big to fix. It didn’t look too bad even if it was polyester yarn I bought 10 years ago to make Halloween spiders in Taylor’s kindergarten class.

    My grandma Ryan taught me but I did watch my mother and another grandma knit all my life. Working on about 4 different projects at this time. Project overload anyone??!! But oh isn’t it FUN!!

  • julie: September 26, 2016

    Yep, my grandma taught me too! Both of them knit, and then it skipped a generation to me.

  • Melinda: September 26, 2016

    My Grandma Ryan taught me to knit when I was probably 12 and then Katie got me to pick my needles back up :)

  • Kayla: September 26, 2016

    I’m actually going to my first knitting class tomorrow! I have always wanted to learn and your blog has definitely inspired me to join a class!

  • Janel Gerber: September 26, 2016

  • Sara: September 26, 2016

    I have NO CLUE how to knit, but I sure do enjoy the creations of those who do!!

  • Karen: September 26, 2016

    I first learned to knit at Luella Hoffman’s 4H club when I was about 10, made a floppy pair of purple slippers. Sarah Zahner re-taught me a few years ago. I still have a lot to learn, but enjoy it,especially this time of year with a cozy fire on a cool evening.

    Katie, now I see what the mannequins in your living room are for :)

  • Michelle Kroll: September 26, 2016

    Knitting has been passed down from generation to generation. My mom taught me to crochet and a friend kick started me knitting. But, nowadays I knit with my mom and we find projects for her to do. I have a plenty long enough queue.

  • FlannelJammies: September 26, 2016

    I used the Internet to learn how to knit. I do wish that I had someone who could have taught me though… there probably would have been less throwing of the yarn and needles that way! ;)

  • nestdesignstudio: September 26, 2016

    My grandmother taught me and my sister how to knit and sew!

  • Dana: September 26, 2016
