New Releases and RAVE reviews!

I hope everyone had a wonderful relaxing holiday weekend.  While I did get some time to get out and enjoy the wonderful weather we had, I also made time to get 5 new pouches complete for the shop!  All are available today, stop by and check out the new lovelies.

I also wanted to share this with you.  I have to say, I never imagined that something I created would become so popular.  This started out as a hobbie and has slowly turned into a business.  I have always been hesitant to sell my creations at the fear that someone would pick apart my work.  Lately I have been receiving some RAVE reviews that have made me so much more confident in my work. I am very particular with my creations right down to the finishing techniques I use to insure longevity of our items.  This attention to detail has not gone unnoticed.  I received this booming review below and I have to say it honestly brought a tear to my eye.  An artist always appreciates feedback, this just made me feel on top of the world.  Thanks everyone for your kind words and support!

"Wow. This is a knitter's dream come true. It looks exactly as pictured online and is beautifully crafted. If you are a knitter and thinking about buying something to keep yourself organized, don't hesitate to purchase this. This one case replaces the big plastic bag, notions pouch, and 7 cable pouches that I was previously using. I can comfortably (with extra room) fit my entire Knitpicks interchangeable needle set, 2 or 3 of every size cable (from 24"-50"), a couple of fixed sock needles/cables, row counter, ruler/needle gauge, mini scissors, sewing needle, cable end keepers, small pill box with stitch markers and a couple of other small notions (in the zippered pouch). Plus, I can even put my folded pattern right in the middle and the whole thing buttons up beautifully into a small little pouch without wrinkling my pattern. Where has this been all my life?! The needles fit comfortably without anything poking out and both the cables and the needles have a little piece of fabric that covers them so they will not fall out or get damaged. I've seen other needle cases on Etsy but they are huge and fold out in a strange way and then you have to tie them closed. Plus I hate the layout of those other ones. The snap closure on this one is so much quicker and convenient and the way the needles and cable pockets line up on top of each other makes this much more compact than other ones. The fabric is of great quality and even though I have only had this in my possession for a short time I knew I didn't have to wait to see how this would hold up...it's great and well worth the money."

Out with the old in with the new! SALE

Moving forward I will only be making the new style interchangeable needle pouch with the expandable pockets for larger gauge needles.  This new style has received RAVE reviews.  That said, I have only two pouches left in the shop in the original design.  To make room for the new pouches I am placing these on sale!  These pouches were $48 on sale for $45.  Here are the two that are up for grabs:
