A Little Something New Coming Soon

Here are a few photos of what I've been working on for the shop.  I still have a few tweeks to make but basically this will be the design.  This will be a great addition to your knitting bag.  A compact interchangeable/dpn needle case that measures approximately 5-1/2" by 8" when closed and has slots for 20 pairs of dpns/
needle tips.  It also has a zipper pouch for all your other accessories (scissors, tape measure and the like.  It has a long flap to hold the needles in place and a tab closure with a super cute button.  I'm also working on some other accessories to go with this: a small, flat stitch marker case and a dpn cover.  I hope you like it!  Stay-tuned! There may be a secret coupon code for this design JUST FOR blog readers!

Let's Try This Again!

As you can see from my previous post, it has been literally YEARS since I have added anything to this blog. Well, life has slowed down somewhat for me: my daughter was married a year ago and has moved back to the Motherland (Maine) so it's just "The Hubs" and I now and my little business "KnittingsMyBag".  With more time to devote to the business, I'm getting back into the things that can help it grow.  Here are some things that I've been cooking up for my blog followers:
  • Secret Coupon Codes
  • Blog readers will be the first to "sneak peek" new products (and even some deep discounts to be the first to try out some prototypes)
  • Frequent Purchaser Program (I've got to find a better name for it)
  • Giveaways (from KnittingsMyBag)
  • Giveaways (from some of my favorite vendors)
  • Meet Ups (for knitters who are in my area; both in California and in Maine)
  • Knit-a-longs
Those are just some of the things I've come up with.  I'm hoping that as we get more followers, more ideas will float to the surface. For the first few weeks, I'm going to concentrate on writing better posts and spread the word about being back in the blogging world.  If you are a fan of KnittingsMyBag, help me out by sharing this info with your friends from the knitting/crocheting world.

Closin' in on Christmas

Wow, another year quickly coming to an end. Christmas is upon us and once Thanksgiving is gone -- BAM I feel overwhelmed with Christmas responsibilities.  Who puts this pressure on me…..ME.  It's crazy!  My family is so low-key it's ridiculous yet I run around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to make each Christmas more spectacular than the last.  I'm nuts!!

Take time to enjoy the season: force yourself to stop and smell the mistletoe this year. Watch some classic Christmas movies with a big 'ole bowl of popcorn (with butter, of course), wrap gifts while Christmas music is playing in the background, have a cup of Peppermint tea and a sugar cookie while you knit away on that knitting project (not a last minute Christmas gift you are trying to whip through). Enjoy all the many blessing we have in our lives.  And…………..

If you are lucky enough to live where there is snow……. maybe you can just sit and look out your window and watch the beautiful flakes fall to the ground in COMPLETE silence.

Hahahahah, LOL, ROFL, if only you could! It's a nice thought isn't it. But this is reality so get your butt out of those pajamas, shower, go over your 8 page "To Do" list and hit the mall.  Oh, but before you do that, go over to and pick up those last minute items for your knitting friends and swap partners!  I'll be updating the shop every few days with new items so go back often and check out what's on the shelves.

Ready, set Gooooooooooooooo……..
