Knitting Needle Purse Handles

Good purse handles are hard to find! One customer told me she scours the Goodwill and buys bags for the handles only. Great idea.

Pictured here are some handles similar to those used in the popular cabled bag by Champagne Maker, called "The Irresistible Chip Bag"....these handles, now in stock, are a bit larger and perfect for Champ's larger version of the Chip Bag. Our 100% Egyptian Cotton is ON SALE for 25% off while supplies last. Our blog readers are the first to know. Stop in this weekend for a ball or two!
Have any of you made a chip bag?

Guess where I've been knitting?

Easy, right? This is to inspire you to post the answer because beginning next week, we're starting our random number give-a-way!!

Every so often, I'll offer a give-a-way. Then I'll run the random number generator. The response number that matches the random number selected will win a free gift!

Why are we doing this? It is super easy to post here on the blog rather than our newsletter. While we aren't giving up the newsletter, this is just a faster way to get the word out about new arrivals, specials, shop news, etc.

So....I want to encourage you to read the blog regularly and post! Send me your thoughts, ideas, suggestions, and comments. This will keep you in the know about what's going on in your LYS and you might just be our very first winner!
