  1. Thanks for the opportunity to win the giveaway. I also am wondering if you would be doing some kind of tutorial on how to do toe up sock using two colors. I love Stitch Surfer but am sort of intimidated with the construction of two colors involved. Keep up the great work you do.

  2. I have seen these needles in several knit shops and really wanted to buy a set, but budget wise i was unable to ever afford them IT WOULD BE SO GREAT TO WIN A SET. I am an avid knitter and take my knitting every where I go. I would be so very grateful and appreciative to win a set. Thanks for the opportunity.

  3. Hi Staci!
    I am already a subscriber and always enjoy your videos.
    At present, I store my needles in individual clear bags filed by size inside a fabric zipper bag (Vera Bradley large make-up bag).
    Storing yarn: Some of my yarn is wound into cakes and stacked attractively on bookshelves, some in a basket, and some in a storage bench.
    I am still a fairly new knitter, almost a year, and have purchased several Knitter’s Pride needles and LOVE them. I do not own an interchangeable set — I have often wondered about them and your video answered several questions. Thank you for having a giveaway!

  4. Ooooh! So excited!!!! I would LOVE to get my hand on some Knitter’s Pride needles!
    My needle and yarn storage have been passed down from my mother and grandmother.
    My mom cut a mailing tube in half to store all her long metal needles. To this day, every time the tube falls over and all the needles clink together, I think of my mom.
    My favorite yarn storage would have to be my Grandmother’s antique yarn bowl. It used to sit in her bedroom beside her chair. Not sure if she ever used it for yarn, but it held all sorts of notions, buttons and “treasures”.
    Thanks for the opportunity to share.

  5. Hi Stack! First let me say I have learned so much from you. Thank you! I only have yarn for a project or two at a time. I keep my needles in a roll up case. Oh! I must tell you I am deaf and wear headphones to listen to you. Your diction and enunciation is impeccable. I don’t even need the captioning! This is the first time I have commented to you so I am fan-girling a bit. Ha!

  6. Ugh! Staci… there are times I detest auto correct. Then there are times when the results are quite amusing.

  7. Hi Staci,
    I have recently gotten back into knitting and would really love to win this set of needles.
    I love your tutorials, I was trying to knit a lace shawl, and watched your tutorial to learn how to start the cast on going from 3 to 9 stiches. I had a hard time. Without your instruction, I would not have accomplished it.
    I am knitting the “Shaker dishcloth” that you modernized. Love it.
    I really need a good set of circular needles.
    thanks for your review of these needles and giveaway.

  8. Thank you so much for the chance to win!! I hear so many wonderful things about Knitter’s Pride and I would love to try them.I store my yarn in clear bins and my circular needles are stored in a hanging shoe holder. I’m also able to slip the straight needless in as well. Love your videos!!!

  9. my favorite new place is the bookshelves in our family room.
    i can spread out my projects so i can easily see what im working on since i usually have several things
    going on at the same time.
    i love to put my straight needles in mason jars.
    to me the needles and yarn are beautiful to just look at:)

  10. I store all my yarn in large zip lock bags. one bag per project. I have made my own circular needle case out of knitting sheep fabric to store my needles.

  11. Hi- Staci… I recently found your site and am so excited about all the videos and tips… like my eyes are finally opened to the world of knitting !! I am relatively new at knitting and struggle a lot with just some simple patterns. I do not have any wooden interchangeable needles, sort of scared to purchase them as they are expensive for me to buy and wonder if maybe they wear down or break ? I would love to try a starter set of them …. who knows I may like them !! I have a small yarn stash kept in under bed zippered {clear on the top} storage bags , have handles so it is easy to pull out, and free from dust bunnies … lol… What needles I do own I have in a round wicker basket on a shelf in my kitchen. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win a starter set !!~~~~~

  12. I JUST reorganized all my yarn and needles! I have all my yarn sorted by weight in big Rubbermaid tubs. Needles, well, they’re still sort of a jumble, but basically, I have them sorted by size in various needle cases. I really try to put them away (I have several sets of KnitPicks interchangeables) each time I’m done with them… doesn’t always happen!

  13. I have always wanted to try these starter set of knitter’s pride and i never got the opportunity to try them. These needles looks awesome and a fun way to knit with these needles!!! Inlove your videos and they really do help me a lot with my knitting. Your website is my go to videos which i have you in my favorites!!! Keep up the good work!!

  14. Staci,

    I would love to win the knitters Pride needles, I’ve never had a pair.



  15. I also am wondering if you would be doing some kind of tutorial on how to do toe up sock using two colors. I love Stitch Surfer but am sort of intimidated with the construction of two colors involved. Keep up the great work you do.

  16. I love your website. I have learned so many techniques from you. I have been knitting for 18 months. Keep up the great work.

  17. Hi Staci! I am knitting more and more so I sure could use a starter set and would love to try a new brand of needle especially since I do not yet own any interchangeable ones. I store my circular needles (all Addi Turbos) in numerical order in their original bag in a small canvas tote so I can quickly find the size I need. I store all my double pointed needles (Brittany Brand) in an identical tote also in the sleeve that came with them in numerical order. Like you, I am not a yarn stasher – I only like to buy yarn with a project I intend to cast on right away, but I do store my project leftovers in 2 decorative gift bags: one for cotton yarn and the second for wool or wool blends. Suuuuuuure hope I win! Thanks for your generosity!

  18. Thank you for the opportunity to win the starter set. I love that the cords look smooth also and not as if I would constantly be trying to straightening them out.

  19. How do you do Staci ! The Knitters Pride Needle set is so exciting ! I started knitting as an experiment during Christmas few months back, to do something productive while I was cooped up indoor with Chicago’s frequent cold weather alerts, and the experience was so much enjoyable, relaxing and exhilarating that during a short span of time I learnt not only how to knit (pretty complex projects) but also how to crochet ! When it comes to storing my Yarn, I do that in my bookshelf (I have a pyramid book shelf, it gives my living room such an interesting look- I’ve arranged books and yarn cakes in alternate shelves) That makes me organize my yarn and makes it easy to choose color and check color compatibility while starting new project or adding new color, without actually digging through the stack of yarn in a basket and my living room looks so colorful. As for needles, I stored them once in an empty box of Reynolds Wrap (Since I didn’t have anything at that time) and later realized that that was the best thing. That way I can re-use the box. I have two boxes with labels on them indicating the needle sizes that the box holds. I even crocheted a cozy for the boxes to hide the “Reynolds Wrap”. That’s how I store my Yarn & Needles.

  20. Forgive me I spelt “learnt” instead of “learned”. I grew up with British English. Still getting used to American way of spelling.

  21. Just found you today on you tube…. Fantastic
    video on the Fiona baby sundress !!! Love your
    Facebook. I have been knitting since my grandmother taught me at 12 years old .i have my yarn and supplies stored everywhere,baskets ,hatboxesand bookcases….lol i would love to win the starter kit,as i have never tried this brand…thanks and i know i will be enjoying move of your videos….darlene

  22. I store my needles in a sterility tub about 16 inches long. I have shelves in my closet where craft supplies are stored, lidded tubs are then stacked. Yarn is stored on shelves so I can see all the beautiful colors. I only keep hand dyed sock yarns in my stash. I don’t buy large quantities of yarn for sweaters as I haven’t actually made a sweater yet!

  23. I keep my needles in my grandma’s long tube style purse. The circular needles are in a plastic box in an old dresser drawer in my sewing room. Another drawer stores my yarn. Love your tutorial videos!

  24. I have in my storage room, 10 plastic bins of yarn. Each one is labeled with the type of yarn it is (wool, baby, lacy knit, etc). For my fun fur’s I have recycled a plastic bed-in-a-bag (king size) – bag and store all those yarns in that. For scraps, I have two small baskets, one for dishcloth and scarf scraps and the other for everything else. As for projects in progress, I always have at least 2, one that I have in a carry & stand tote that can go where I do and the other is a stay-at-home and for that I bought a stylish toilet paper holder with a shelf. My working yarn is on the “roll” and when I’m not working on that, the project rests on the “shelf”…Needles? I have tried several, but my favorite so far are the cubic needles. They are so comfortable and I can knit for hours! My straight needles I store in a plastic spaghetti storage container and I have a foldable cloth case for my circular needles.

  25. I like you way of teaching. It’s so clear. I have learnt a lot since I started to watch your videoa. Thank you!

  26. I store my yarn in clear bins by color. My needles are stored by size in clear large Ziploc bags that I’ve marked. It’s not the best way but I don’t know of any other way! I’ve recently been introduced to your website-appreciate your easy instructions. Just made tulle scrubbies-fun!

  27. Hi Staci, I can’t say thank you enough for all the techniques, tips, and tricks you’ve shared. I apply them frequently. I must tell you that I was an exclusive Addi user due to the quality until your first review of the Knitter’s pride starter set. I have since bought the Carbonz set and the Dreamz wood special set (16″) and love them both. You are so right about the joints of the Knitter’s pride interchangeable needles being very smooth, more so than the Addi bamboo set I have, and the Dreamz laminated wood is so smooth and soft – feels like butter. Now I’m considering buying the Dreamz Deluxe set that comes with 9 pair of needles. I was wondering if the hard case shown in your video was a special “gift” from Knitter’s Pride? All the sets I found online don’t seem to come with that hard case and I’d like to get my hands on one if possible.???? Thanks!

  28. That’s so close! I do like the different colors but will definitely consider this option. I now have some decisions to make. Thanks again for always being so helpful!

  29. Oh how wonderful to have a chance to win some great needles. I have all hand me downs from grandma’s and friends that find old needles..but they are not so comfortable and after years of knitting…it is time to try some new exciting technically designed needles!!
    I have been sharing my skills with my fellow professional Dental Hygienists. We Dental Hygienists have such problems with our arms, wrists, shoulders and hands after years of cleaning teeth…knitting helps correct and improve posture, relaxing shoulders and the all important creative process for self image and meditative results.. hope I win!!
