View Full Version : "Knitting Girl" candy container...


03-19-2006, 10:52 PM
I don't know if anyone will care about this, but I was a Joann's last night (my coupon was expiring!) and as I was checking out I looked at the candy stand thingy and it had these CUTE little containers...with sugar-free green apple mints. Isn't it cute??? I'm going to use it as a pill box for my purse when the candy is gone!! They had 2 other one's, the one that I know for sure said Scrapbooking Girl. It was pink I think.

I blew up the picture so you could see it better. The dimensions are 2" X 1 1/2" and less than 1/2" thick.

I'm always looking for a nicer pill box than the one I have and now I've got one!!

Cute!

That is so cute! I would love to have a "knitting girl" coffee cup! I have a Nordy Girl cup (Nordstroms) that my MIL got me, but a knitting one would be awesome! I have a few sites bookmarked, but don't see anything knitting related. :??

That's neat -- I like it!! Next time I'm at Joann's, I'm gonna look for one.

My LYS has that same pic on socks that you can purchase! They also have stationary/thank you cards!

I saw that the other day and when I got home, was so upset with myself for not getting one! I'm heading to Joann's after work today! I have a "Cooking Girl" coffee cup and cutting board, both were gifts, but I'm hoping to find some "Knitting Girl" stuff. It's the same girl and everything, so I'm assuming it's all from the same company. I'll have to look at my coffee cup at home and see if there's a website listed.

Ooh! Great for the work bag to hold stitch makers, needles, spare point protectors, etc.!

Yes it would! I have a little Altoids Gum container I use, but I'd prefer the knitting girl! :roflhard:

Very cute! Good idea for holding stich markers. I loose those things all the time. I'll have to look the next time I'm at Joanne's.

I found a story of how this got started...pretty interesting.

I couldn't find a website for them though...maybe they only sell in retail stores?!

Dude, I was just at Joanne's because my coupon was expiring too! I didn't see that though, so I got Vogue Knitting Winter instead... Nice find though!! :thumbsup:
