Indian Lake Artisans Needles Giveaway

July 16


I recently returned from the big TNNA trade show in Columbus where I was introduced to a new and unusual line of knitting needles. They’re fun, and made in the USA!

Indian Lake Artisans is a Michigan-based company that uses local supplies and sustainable resources to make their unusually shaped needles. Knitters may find the hexagonal shape easier to hold than the typical round needles, helping to more easily control their needles and make nice, uniform stitches. What I love about them is that each size has a different copper top. Feathers adorn the smallest size (US #6/4mm); the owls on the size 7/4.5mm are my personal favorite.

The pair I’m giving away are size US 15/10mm. Made of birch, they are 10″ long and topped with the cutest little log cabins!

If you leave a comment, you may win these needles yourself! To win, enter a comment here on this post by midnight Eastern Time on July 29th, 2012. Please include your contact information in your comment so I can let you know if you’re the lucky winner! I’ll be conducting a random drawing, using a computer generated random number selector. (One comment per person, please, with only one comment and email address per person.)

    Lovely needles! They make me think of Little House on the Prairie and I think that if I used them I would knit hats, scarves, mittens in the old fashioned Laura Ingalls kind of way.
