Today’s giveaway is a somewhat rare item because I don’t think it’s something that is made anymore. The One Stick:Two Stick kits were manufactured by Coats and offered projects designed by Maggie Pace using a bamboo/wool blend yarn.
The idea is that you can make a little something for yourself and share something with friends, hopefully passing the needle art love on to someone else in the process.
The kit I have — which I looked over as a holiday gift idea back in 2008 — is for a small wallet or coin purse you can either knit or crochet and then felt. It’s a sushi wallet because a couple of the design options use a circle motif that looks a bit like a sushi roll, but there’s also an option just worked in stripes if you’d rather. (And while the instructions pictured here show a dark colorway, the actual kit I have is mostly light green with highlights of sea blue, coral and gold.)
There’s enough yarn to make one bag and a bunch of the little sushi motifs, which can be used as zipper pulls and in other ways. The zipper for the bag is also included. You’ll need to supply size 10 US (6 mm) knitting needles, a yarn needle and sewing needle and thread for installing the zipper.
This giveaway is open through Sunday, March 24. To enter, leave a comment below. If you’d like, tell me about your experience with felting. Or sushi. Or whatever.
