1000th Feedback!!!

KIP Bags by Ruddawg has gotten their 1000th feedback! In honor of this momentous occasion, I am giving away a One of a Kind KIP Bag filled with goodies. The stuff? A sampling based on the idea "A Few of my Favorite Things."

What are a few of my favorite things? Well, KIP bags, of course. This one is red velvet, 10" high by 7 1/2" wide. A red velvet wrist strap allows for knitting and walking at the same time. It has a decorator fabric bottom and fancy stitching at the top to give it a more festive look.

What is in the bag?

The top fuzzy item is a pair of socks. Not just socks, but a pair of those fuzzy and oh so soft socks. I am a fiend for socks! I ask for a new set of socks every year for my birthday.

Next is a skein of Alpaca yarn - Caramel in color. I love, love LOVE alpaca! This skein is from Blue Sky Alpacas, 120 yards of Sport Weight Yarn.

The red item is my most useful tool for knitting, sewing and everything else. It's a small swiss army knife that goes on a set of keys. It's got a small pair of scissors, knife, nail file, tweezers, and toothpick. I've had one myself for many years and find it so handy.

I will provide a list of my most useful websites. They will be of free knitting patterns, and useful websites for those who knit socks and such. As these are not my knitting patterns, please make sure to follow their copyright instructions. They are my "go-to" patterns for quick gifts.

Moisturizer pretty much speaks for itself. Somehow, it always seems as though knitting takes the moisture out of my hands. With my asthma, perfumed moisturizers can set off an attack pretty quickly. This moisturizer from Gold Bond is effective, long lasting and fragrance free.

There will be chocolate added to the bag, but I haven't gotten it yet. It's just too much of a temptation to leave out in this house.

NOW - The details:
To enter to get this KIP Bag giveaway, Leave a comment. Comment about whatever you like, but make sure I can get a hold of you in case you win. The first winner will be selected next Wednesday, December 1st at about 8 am CST.

Thanks to all who have made the KIP Bag a success!

What an awesome giveaway! Congrats on your 1000th feedback! My comment is about you personally - Brenda you have gone out of your way more than once to provide me with the bag I was specifically looking for and I appreciate it so much. You are a perfect example of why I like to shop individuals on etsy instead of big box stores. Thanks again!

Congrats on reaching such a huge feedback milestone! I love your bags and you and I like all of the same things. :) What a sweet giveaway!

P.S. I love your kitty! I have a red tabby too, but she's a bit daintier than yours. She sprawls in her kitty pis like a much larger cat though.

Hello! I was your 1000th feedback! I am looking forward to using the beautiful bag you have made. I have tried using some tote bags that I have around the house but, everything gets jumbled up in them and I spend a lot of time digging instead of working on my project. When I heard about your bags from someone on Ravelry I was soooo excited. I love the pockets inside for all of the small bits that I am always digging for. This bag will also be perfect for toting around some fiber and one of my drop spindles for spinning on the go! And, I can't thank you enough for pricing them affordably.Thanks again!
