~*Yarn Demon Summer Giveaway*~

The Winner is: Jennifer/vitalai Congratulations:)


This is what Anita had to say:
I am a graphic artist by day and a crafter by night.
I love to knit and crochet.
I love all the books, patterns, and gadgets that go along with it! Like most knitters and crocheters I have quite a stash of all things related to the crafts.
I started making clay stitch markers to use and amuse myself.
Then I started sharing them with friends, one thing led to another.... and here I am with a little store on etsy!

I specialize in cute, whimsical, polymer clay stitch markers. They were featured in the Winter 2007/2008 issue of Knit Simple magazine. However, I also dabble in beaded stitch markers and other little knit-knacks.
Hugs, Anita


You are viewing one set of 4 silly LOBSTERS knitting or crochet stitch markers.

I personally made these by hand, with no molds.
These stitch markers are made from polymer clay, baked for hardness & durability with a glaze applied.
A one of a kind item, they look similar but no two are exactly alike!
The lobsters are approx. 3/4" tall. This set fits up to a size 10 US knitting needle (6.5 mm).
They come hooked on a 2 inch kilt pin which can be used as a stitch holder!

Attach them to your knitting bag so you always have them available, or use as a cute decoration to any item. They would make a great gift for a knitter you know! The pictures just don't do them justice, even cuter in person!
There will be 1 winner and 3 ways to enter
Rules:
1.Go Check out Anita's shop then come back here and leave a comment saying what you liked.

2.Blog about this giveaway and link to it and come back and leave a comment saying you did.

3.If someone leaves a comment saying they came from your blog link to the giveaway your name gets entered again.

Deadline Is June 12 2009 Midnight

Oh, her peas in a pod are adorable. But living practically on Cape Cod, I have to admit I am particularly partial to the "lobstahs"!

Knitnut,Karen said...

I visited her blog. All of her markers are adorable. I love the peas, the easter birds and ,well, I guess I liked the penquins best,no, maybe I just like them all.

Robin said...

Since I love Chocolate I vote for those but the peas in a pod are sooooo cute.

c'est Moi! the tink-n-frog said...

She does do great work! I'm rather taken with the frogs that are listed on her sold page. Actually the chickens were cute too. But when I saw the hot chilis, I thought those did it for me.

Jennifer said...

The penguins are so dorky. I love them!

M said...

Fantastic shop! I am loving the set of 4 sheep stitch markers - adorable! Great idea to make one black as well - the "black sheep" in the family to keep track of the beginning of a row :)

I loved Erica's silly little sheep painted on the orifice hook. Thanks for a great contest!

First, I wanted to say that I linked here from Cheap Knitter's blog.

Secondly, I have to say, goodness those stitch markers are sooo cute! How could a person pick a favorite...I saw so many cute ones...the sheep, the peas, the bird/nests.... I could go on and on! I've already bookmarked yarn demon as a favorite so that I can go back and buy some!

The Easter egg chicks were just darling! Though truth be told all of them were very cute!

AmIAKnitterYet said...

danielle said...

The lobsters are jsut too cute - to be perfect they would need to be crabs! I cant pick out which ones I liked best cause I loved all of them!

helenlam said...

Those lobsters are just wonderful though I do agree that crabs would make some fun stitch markers too! Wiknit sent me here by the way...
