Debra's Gauge Pendant for Breast Cancer Research

New from Debra's Garden, a pretty, pink Gauge Pendant.  Included with each purchase, a donation and matching donation by Debra's Garden, to Susan G. Komen for the CureŽ, a foundation dedicated to education and research about causes, treatment and the search for a cure for breast cancer. 

New Innovation from Nancy's Knit Knacks

The Scarf Fold‑up allows scarf knitters to control and manage their scarves while knitting. This nifty tool distributes the length and bulkiness of the scarf around an 8" wide by 6" long area. Since it is being held in place by elastic, the scarf remains securely intact. The Scarf Fold-up also features a 4" x 4" stitch and row gauge, a complete US and metric needle conversion chart, and rulers in both 8" and 20cm. 

And the winner is...
