Welcome to day one of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week 2012. It’s going to be a fun week. A post a day for seven days…. phew!

We’ve been given general topics to write about each day, and part of the fun is to see how these topics are interpreted blog to blog. So take a look around, here and elsewhere. The code to search for in Google today is 3KCBWDAY1. I’ll pop the search codes for the other days at the bottom of my posts.

Anyhow, Monday. The theme is Colour Lovers.

Taking a peek around my blog you’ll see that I am fairly colourful. Funnily enough I LOVE muted colours but rarely buy them. Big bold bright colours just jump into my bag… and to celebrate big bold bright colours I thought we’d have a giveaway. A knitterly giveaway. This is Knitting blog week after all :)


For ages now I’ve been wanting a case for my interchangable knitting needles, cables and bits and bobs.

I’ve finally gotten around to making one. And, while I was at it I made two. One for you too!

A colourful extravaganza, no?! I drew inspiration from  a lovely pen wrap roll over at No Big Dill, hunted about for knitting needle cases I liked, and went from there. 

There are pockets for 16 pairs of tips, 12cm / 4.5cm long. Tucked behind are three larger pockets perfect for lots and lots of cables. Connectors, caps and cable keys can be safely tucked away in the zip pocket at the end.The case is padded to protect your precious needles. A soft flap makes sure your needles don’t slip out and, once rolled up, the whole thing is held shut with an elastic cord, encased in pretty dotty cotton.

To enter, leave a comment at the bottom of this post before 10pm, Sunday 29th April GMT. I’ll let you know who won on Monday morning.
PLEASE! Leave me an email address so I can get hold of you. Or, make sure you pop back to see who won!!! – this giveaway has now closed.

So, fingers crossed, you can have one of your own. Mine is already in use! I’ve got a pair of wee scissors and a few crochet hooks tucked in there too.I did get a bit of a surprise this week. I thought I’d photograph my latest yarn purchases to show you what lovely colours they were. I bought them on a couple of separate occasions. Anyhow, look what I found….

They’re nearly all red and green. Who’d have thought? I thought I was in a yellow phase :)
