Pass it on…a giveaway!

Well, it turns out that I really don’t need all *four* Lantern Moon silk needle cases from the Loop & Hoop event. I already own a matching needle case especially for circulars, so five is over the top! The circular case holds my Lantern Moon ebony and rosewood circulars. One new case holds my 16 inch LM ebony circulars and matching dpns. (These are all size 7 and up; my skinny dpns live in a different case.) Another holds my bamboo (non-LM) circulars. I’m reserving one more because I’m not sure how storage is going to work out, but I still have at least one extra case. Combined with my missing my first blogoversary this month (March 17), I think this means I need to celebrate the anniversary and have a giveaway!

Here’s the inside of the case. There’s a zippered compartment on the left, storage for circulars in the middle, and storage for straight needles on the right.

If you’d like to win this needle case, please leave a comment on this post by April 5. I’ll use the random number generator and pick a winner. Good luck!

In other news, one of my pictures has been published in Schmap Portland Guide. You can see it here, but you saw it on my blog, first! The Schmap people must have found the picture by title from flickr. Schmap seems to be a nice travel guide, and it’s free. Cool!

  1. Very cool to have your photo used on Schmap. I remember seeing that photo here on your blog! Will have to poke around the Schmap site later when I have more time (been trying to get lunch for the past 2 hours) .

    The needle case is such a pretty color. I was wondering what the inside looked like when you open it up. I like how it has a zippered section.
