Knit it Up Tag giveaway!



I just ordered myself some knitting gift tags from Knit it Up Yarns. I wish I think I might have to go back for some kate's more humorous tags as I played it safe buying the elegant pretty kind.

We're giving away a set of her more blatent tags and here is what Kate has to say in the listing:

I'm a gift knitter. I just love the satisfaction of making something with my own two hands for someone I love. These gorgeous gift tags have a place for you to write in your name and the recipient's name, and when you flip them over you can write in the fiber content and care instructions for your gift.

Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates the hard work you put into your handknitted pieces of art. Hopefully you're not knitting for those people, but just in case you think your recipient might need a bit of a reminder, these tags have a little note at the bottom that reads: "This project took hours of my precious time to make. You may now ooh and ahh and wear it every single day for the rest of your life." {Inspired by the lovely knitters in Ravelry's Selfish Knitter's Group}

Each set comes in a tin box for safekeeping.

I love it, having a few people on my list who are teetering on that not-so-knitworthy edge this year myself :)

Visit Knit it Up, find something you like, and post about that item in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner on Saturday! Tweets, facebooks, and blog posts get second entries!

Thank you always Kate for bringing some perspective to our knitted gifts this year!

I desperately need some of that Get A Grip hand balm. That sounds amazing& the Romance scent seems heavenly.

This is pretty easy - I love Knit it Up's tags :)

However, my fave item from the shop is the Get a Grip balm. I got a sample of this in one of my first Phat Fiber boxes and have been in love ever since!

Love the colors and fiber content of HARVEST Posh Cashmere Blend Sock Yarn, that might have to find its way to my house if it is still there when my holiday shopping is done!

Jessica said...

The Miss Austen yarn... wow. I want to roll around in it, it's so beautiful.

Ooo, I got some of her tags in my October Fluff Box and have been meaning to get more, as I'm knitting a bunch of gifts this year. I just can't decide which ones I like best... I also love her Mermaid color yarns.

Amanda said...

I love the HARVEST and SALSA Posh Cashmere Blend Sock Yarns!

Linda D said...

LOVED the selfish goft tags, ordered a set for Christmas gifts!

Minou14 said...

I love the tulip gift tags and think the tin is a great idea to keep them from getting lost in my craft room.

I also love the colors in the Lipstick, Miss Austen, Ophelia, English Garden and Serenity.

The Sweet roving is really calling out to me. What a fun mix of pinks!

Kate said...

Ooh wow!! Very cool. The spinners grab bag looks lovely. Beautiful presentation of everything, I love how the little tags come in a wee tin. So cute! :-) Kate

Quilting Pansy said...

and the vintage twine.

TJJ said...

I love the lavender chamomile colorway. I also really like the Dances With Wolves yarn.

redzshadow said...

The INK Empress 100 Percent Silk Ribbon Yarn is very beautiful. It reminds me of my vacation in Germany. Maybe because it rained the whole time.

Love the tags, especially the zebra handknit gift tags. Will definitely be buying some of these to use on my christmas gifts.

Sally said...

The spinners grab bag and the stash protecting cedar sachets are very cool. What a great shop for gifts for spinners!

Melissa said...

I love all the tags, so..... the variety pack!!!

Mama2KBR said...

How can you only pick one great thing? The yarns are beautiful. The gift tags are great. I totally love the ones in the giveaway because they SO represent what I personally deal with.

My fav thing in her shop, I think, is the "Get a grip" lanolin. She has the same problem I do. I never thought of the lanolin!

I added this to my favorites, too. Totally cracked up over the Selfish project tags. I want to try out the Get a Grip Hand Balm. Loads of fun stuff here.

I especially like the Gothic tags. Love the little tin box.

elendir said...

Every single one of the curvy merino yarns...

trh said...

I need one of those tags to put on a gift for my Mother-in-law. She asked for an orange sweater for fall when I saw her over the 4th of July and then when I saw her the 5th of August, she asked where her sweater was . . . And, the sweater is still where it was then, in some store in the form of orange yarn on a shelf . . .

knittingdancer said...

My 2 favorite yarns are Salsa Posh Cashmere Blend Sock yarn and the Blueberry Halo Laceweight Alpaca Silk yarn.

Little Miss S. said...

Love the colors of the Mermaid Ethereal Laceweight Merino Yarn - there is just something about green. Perhaps that it's nowhere to be seen outside in the winter weather...?

Kristen said...

I love the "selfish" knit tags. :)

There is so much to love...But really the snarky gift tags are the best. I love them!

It's not easy to look through such an awesome shop and pick just one item. I very much loved the Blueberry Halo Laceweight Alpaca Silk Yarn.

I love all of it! I might have to get that last skein of Harvest (posh sock). Such beautiful fall colors!

I love most of the colors of fiber in here. NEED TO GET A WHEEL!!!

Hey I forgot to post what fibers I liked the most...http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26629925 was my favorite in the peacock, I am just starting spinning, and would love to work with this vibrant color! I also like the Curvy Hydrangea Merino yarn. I am adding it to my wishlist on my blog (in-skein.blogspot.com) and my facebook.

Snarky gift tags win hands down!!!

CrazedSpinner said...

Ok so there is so much at kt it up's store that I like, but my top two are the lavendar and camomile lace yarn (because that is my favorite tea, I would be lost without it) and the gothic gift tags. But really I love it all.

PenelopeRose said...

Jessica said...

I NEED some of the Get a Grip Balm! Great Idea!

Christine said...

Oh everything of hers is gorgeous! I've spun up some fiber from her earlier and it was LOVELY!

I'm in love with the bakers twine. very cool!

I have several of her Bamboozled sock yarns and love them. Right now I'm stalking anything in her Ink or Squall colorways.
