yarnalong bracelet giveawaySummer is prime time for knitting on the go, and this week’s giveaway will let one lucky person do just that. The Yarn-a-long Bracelet from Rock Farms, which I reviewed over on About, is a metal and bead bracelet that carries your yarn for you so you can knit while walking around.

If you ask me, this is not a good product for someone who has wrist problems, which I do, which is why I’m giving it away. It’s a lovely product, and it may actually work better on a belt loop than around a wrist for someone who does have wrist pain. I found the weight of holding the yarn from my wrist to be uncomfortable, but you may not have the same problem.

To enter to win this prize, which has green beads just like the one in the picture, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, June 30. If you want, tell me where you wish you were taking your knitting this summer. Or where you’re actually taking it if you have a fun vacation planned. (I am longing to take mine back to New England, but I think we’re actually planning a Gulf Coast vacation for the fall.)

That yarn, by the way, is not included, but I might throw in something fun; we’ll just have to see!

Good luck and thanks for visiting!

  2. Joanna on June 24, 2013 5:32 pm

    Thank-you for the giveaway! :) I’m not going on vacation this summer. But I do take my knitting with me everywhere I go! :)

  3. nancy d on June 24, 2013 5:33 pm

    What will they think of next! This is the answer to my runaway balls! I’m hoping to do some knitting in the car on a fabulous road trip!

  4. Tammy M on June 24, 2013 5:42 pm

    My knitting will be going to the beach, to the mountains, and also camping this summer!

  5. Andrea on June 24, 2013 5:52 pm

    I am taking my knitting camping. I love knitting in the outdoors.

  6. KateMet on June 24, 2013 6:01 pm

    My knitting will be taking a road trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes, though I wish it were going back to NYC. Maybe next year :)

  7. lysa on June 24, 2013 6:20 pm

    My teenage daughter would love this. She’d never stop knitting…. which is awesome because then she’d never have time to date :)

  8. Kat F. on June 24, 2013 6:46 pm

    Canada, here we come!

  9. Ginny D on June 24, 2013 7:39 pm

    I would love to go back east and visit family! Maybe in the fall..best time to go!

  10. Jeanne on June 24, 2013 7:43 pm

    My next planned traveling knitting is in August when I deliver my son to PRINCETON!! I’m super excited and proud, but now every penny must be pinched – college=$$ I’d love to win a cute and usefull knitting tool!

  11. Maria on June 24, 2013 8:31 pm

    I’d like to take my knitting on a road trip across the west coast from San Francisco to Vancouver.

  12. Sheila on June 24, 2013 9:06 pm

    I’d love to use this for knitting while I volunteer at a Health Care for All Oregon advocacy group at my local Saturday Farmers Market. Then I wouldn’t drop my yarn on the ground so often. Plus I might try knitting while hiking.

  13. Linda Rumsey on June 25, 2013 1:01 am

    I would love to go to Wimbledon and knit whilst I watch the tennis. Maybe next year!

  14. Debbie on June 25, 2013 4:16 am

    Would be great for our long road trips to Iowa

  15. Ann on June 25, 2013 4:38 am

    We take a lots of short trips. It be great to have, I gets lots of runaways cats love it.

  16. Ann Devine on June 25, 2013 4:39 am

    Alaska! Kinda like Canada, but no passport required. This is a nifty idea, thanks for bringing it up.

  17. dee on June 25, 2013 4:51 am

    My MIL had one of these wrist yarn holders 50 years ago. Somehow I always wanted one and said holder disappeared…perhaps she took it with her? I would love my own. thanks. Dee

  18. Tania on June 25, 2013 4:53 am

    I like to take my knitting EVERYWHERE! And I’m always dropping the yarn, this would make me much less of a nuisance to others!
    What a great idea.

  19. Anne Marie on June 25, 2013 5:20 am

    What a neat notion! I would love to take my knitting to Monterey Bay. I seem to be missing the home of my youth more and more these days.

  20. Cynthia on June 25, 2013 5:30 am

    I would take my yarn to either Minnesota or Australia! The wrist holder would make a great addition to my notions.

  21. Mindie W on June 25, 2013 5:36 am

    I would take my yarn and projects along with me to the cabin. I can sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings doing what I love.

  22. Theresa on June 25, 2013 5:45 am

    I take my yarn everywhere I go—out on the deck while sunning, to the dr office waiting room and on every trip we go on. I get a lot of work done while riding in the car since my husband does the driving.

  23. Karey on June 25, 2013 5:47 am

    So far we have one trip to Texas planned and we are working on a second trip to Florida. I’m planning on bringing my knitting to both! And this bracelet would be so handy during the long car rides!

  24. Terrie on June 25, 2013 5:50 am

    My knitting has been going everywhere with me lately. To work, to the doctor’s office, to the local ATT office(’cause you have to wait so-o-o long to get waited on), to church, to dinner, the wine bar, and at red lights. It’s fun seeing the expressions on faces as they realize what you are doing. It’s also a great conversation starter and I’ve met some interesting people along the way.

  25. Knittingdancer on June 25, 2013 5:57 am

    I will take my knitting with me this fall when we go to the mountains for a couple of days. this would be great to have sitting outside knitting and looking at the beautiful scenery

  26. Pat morris on June 25, 2013 6:00 am

    I would love to take my knitting everywhere ,but I find myself gravitating to my rocker next to the waterfall in my yard.

  27. Ricki Duke on June 25, 2013 6:17 am

    In the motorhome while up camping in the great outdoors. Enjoying the fresh outdoors and and your favorite craft, what could be better than that!

  28. Emily C on June 25, 2013 6:31 am

    I will take my knitting to grannies this summer. I wish I was going to a cooler location, like seattle. We have 90+ degrees this week.

  29. Rose S. on June 25, 2013 6:42 am

    No funds for trips this year but I will be taking my knitting to the backyard for ‘pleasurable’ excursions.

  30. Joyce on June 25, 2013 6:46 am

    I’m going back home to Colorado for a reunion and some camping and plan to be knitting socks.

  31. Leanne S on June 25, 2013 6:57 am

    I would love to take my knitting to Indiana.

  32. redlioncarouse on June 25, 2013 7:01 am

    Taking it to the Jersey shore

  33. Margay on June 25, 2013 7:06 am

    This kind of a cool product! I’d like to use it just around the house so I don’t drop my balls of yarn!

  34. Bonnie Blackburn on June 25, 2013 7:14 am

    I would like to win this give-away. I will be going to the Beach and we also camp a lot and would be nice to use while camping. Easy to carry around.


  35. Flo L on June 25, 2013 7:40 am

    Love this idea..will be taking it on vacation to Florida and everywhere else. Thanks so much for the chance to win!

  36. Elena T on June 25, 2013 7:54 am

    We’ll be going to the mountains and I will work on projects during the drive there

  37. Pat on June 25, 2013 8:03 am

    We will be traveling to the coast and later to our daughters in Nebraska. This would be so handy. Thank you for the give away.

  38. Andrea on June 25, 2013 8:06 am

    I took my knitting to Ireland and knit from the Aran Islands to Dublin!

  39. Marilyn (Merry) Fenton on June 25, 2013 8:52 am

    I could take it to Rhode Island or the Black Hills, both of which I’ll be visiting later this summer.

  40. Sandra on June 25, 2013 8:59 am

    I knit everywhere Doctors office, car, church, dining out, walking down the street, I would love to win this.

  41. jo on June 25, 2013 9:13 am

    would love to try this! I don’t have any trips planned but I might do some impromptu trips to see my granddaughter. I also think this gadget would be great to use while sitting in the shade enjoying a nice day outside.

  42. Kim on June 25, 2013 10:49 am

    I think this would work just great for my crochet work. We’re currently on a trip to Maine and I’ve taken my project with me everywhere we’ve gone; the long car trip, to the beach, on hikes and walking through the villages. Thanks for the chance to win.

  43. Jen H on June 25, 2013 11:58 am

    I took my knitting to the beach in Florida earlier this month.

  44. Deena on June 25, 2013 12:54 pm

    FABULOUS!! Would love this! Thanks for posting a chance to win.

  45. Tammy on June 25, 2013 1:03 pm

    I would take my crocheting to the Farmers Market every week and maybe then I wouldn’t have to chase my balls of yarn around.

  46. Craftylady on June 25, 2013 2:26 pm

    Thank-you for the giveaway! I’m like a lot of the readers on here and don’t have a vacation planned, but we are wanting to move to Fl. this summer or fall and I would take it with me. Did you try to hook it to your belt loop? That is an interesting thought. One I would like to try when I win. LOL

  47. jackie on June 25, 2013 2:33 pm

    This would be wonderful for my 88 year old avid knitting mother-in-law!

  48. Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) on June 25, 2013 4:00 pm

    I don’t knit but I do crochet a lot so this would come in very handy! Not sure where we’re going on vacation yet as it’s still the middle of winter here in Australia and we’re planning a spring break. Somewhere interstate probably (would love if it was overseas!), maybe somewhere with lots of beaches. :)

  49. Karen @ Crafty Commons on June 25, 2013 4:01 pm

    For the first time in years, we don’t really have a vacation planned. However, we are planning to take my granddaughter to the Omaha Zoo sometime this summer. That requires an out of state trip and overnight stay – maybe 2 nights! Does that count? :) I love this idea though!

  50. Paula Corman on June 25, 2013 4:21 pm

    I would love to win this yarn bracelet………..
    I am in a wheelchair and want to knit outside………
    Great idea……….

  53. azteclady on June 25, 2013 8:53 pm

    I wish I were going back to DC for the summer, and I certainly would knit on the go–what a cool idea! Thank you for the chance.

  54. lrt40 on June 25, 2013 9:57 pm

    Thanks for the give away. This is a very good item to keep track of rollaways. I would love to win this. Vacation is coming and the yarn goes with me. Thank you for the chance

  55. Valerie Nelson on June 25, 2013 10:45 pm

    Holidays maybe not – knitting on the train to work? A great idea. Thanks for consideration. Val

  56. Linda Day on June 26, 2013 2:27 am

    This is such a great idea… I’m always knitting on the go! Thanks for the giveaway!

  57. Claire C on June 26, 2013 10:27 am

    I don’t think we will manage a holiday this year, instead we will have days out and I will have to find the excuse for not being the driver, any ideas???

  58. shai williams on June 26, 2013 10:41 am

    Thank you for the giveaway! It’s very generous. I am entering this contest not for myself but for a friend that is disabled who finds that her knitting helps to take her mind off of her pain.

  59. caroline on June 26, 2013 12:14 pm

    This would be great I have tried walking around knitting with a plastic bag on my arm but just did not work very well.

  60. Dennis Mullins Sr. on June 26, 2013 3:51 pm

    Hi, sorry you can’t use it. When I saw it I didn’t even think that it might be a problem for people with a wrist problem. Thank you for the giveaway and the chance to take my yarn where ever I go on the run.

  62. Sherry Zimmerman on June 26, 2013 6:50 pm

    Not sure about walking around with yarn,,,,But sitting down using it, will keep the ball of yarn from hitting the floor. The cat is great for the rip offof yarn stitch rings and so on, :D

  63. priyanka on June 27, 2013 4:24 am

    my knitting will be going to a chilly hill station…

  64. Hollie Jones on June 27, 2013 6:44 am

    I am going to NZ for 6 months and plan on taking my knitting to the beach there :-)

  65. Crystal Arcand (3Stairs) on June 27, 2013 9:27 am

    I’d love to take my yarn anywhere with temperatures below 80 degrees!

  66. Laura on June 28, 2013 2:30 am

    Thank you for the giveaway! I’m still learning to knit but I’d take it with me anywhere! With this bracelet I can actually see taking it to starbucks with me, my husband and I love to go there and relax as we enjoy some tea.

  67. Morgan on June 28, 2013 2:51 am

    I would love to take my knitting to England, but the most interesting place it will be going is to my aunt’s house in town.

  68. Carrie Thomas on June 28, 2013 9:52 am

    Vacation is done, but this is great for the walk to pick up my son from school and waiting for him to come out.

  69. Roylene Neal on June 28, 2013 12:31 pm

    I don’t have vacation money set aside this year so may be able to take day trips and always have knitting or crocheting with me.

  70. Carmen on June 28, 2013 7:28 pm

    Hmm – I wonder if this would allow me to knit while chasing after a toddler?! We took our big vacation in Feb (Florida) but we’ll do an extended weekend camping later this summer

  71. Mary Beth I on June 28, 2013 8:05 pm

    I would settle for my home – I wish I had the summer off and could hang out with the children

  72. Helen on June 28, 2013 9:39 pm

    That would take care of the run away yarn ball I often have.

  73. kim on June 29, 2013 10:41 am

    this is a nifty gadget! while we are only going to some local swimming spots, this would be a great way to be able to keep my knitting yarn in check while wrangling 3 kids. Thanks for the great giveaways.

  74. Maxine M on July 2, 2013 10:32 am

    Thank you for the give away. I would like to try this to see if prevents yarn balls from rolling around. I have lots of problems of them getting away from me.
