Namaste’s Hip Holsters in New Colors!

Look what’s coming – those cute Namaste Hip Holsters in bright new colors! We will get these sometime in December, but we’re taking pre-orders on them right now. This style bag retails for $45, and will now be available in Red, Peacock, Lime, Eggplant, and Pink (in addition to the nylon Black and Peacock versions, which retail for $39). These are made in Namaste’s vegan, buttery soft non-leather material that you have come to love in their other bags. Not only is this bag great for your latest sock in progress, but we’ve also seen people using them for purses and camera bags.

Size: 8″ high and 6″ long, with 3″ wide at the base, 2″ wide at the top.
Details: gun metal hardware, with a big open space on the inside and a smaller pocket (for your cell phone or your knitting accessories) on the front. Included are a belt attachment and a should strap option.

Let us know if you’d like to pre-order one! (

I also want to announce some contest winners. First of all, thanks to everyone who participated in our Third Quarter Challenge, which was to make something out of our Loopy Ewe Solid Series line of yarn. You can all of the entries here. Congratulations to Pamela who wins our Reader’s Choice award (and a Loopy Ewe Gift Certificate) for her adorable Whale of a Hat! And congratulations to Molly who wins the random drawing from all entries (and a Loopy Ewe Gift Certificate), for her Lost Throw. I hope you all will keep sharing your Loopy Ewe Solids projects with us. I love seeing the colors you’re combining and the projects you’re completing!

We also have winners from our October Blog Contest, which asked about the things that distract you from work. There were more entries for “computers, the internet, blogs, Ravelry, and The Loopy Ewe” than anything, and I can totally understand that! (Same here.) Congratulations to Leah in Australia and Andrea in CT, who won the random drawing from all of the comments, and have each received a $25 Loopy Ewe Gift Certificate for their win.

  1. Congrats to the winners. I love the whale hat. Very cute!

    I need to either knit or write tonight. No more putzing on the computer for me either (though I will probably see if I can finish my book).

  2. Sheri,
    When I am not using my hip holster bag for a knit on the go project I use it for walking the dogs. It is perfect for keys, cell phone, I pod, treats and plastic baggies for picking up. It also travels well. I took mine to Europe.I love the optional shoulder/belt way of wearing it. It is a great bag!


  3. Added another gift to knit to my list. This one is a must-do…a pair of fingerless mitts in fingering weight for my Goldens’ groomer. Started them over lunch break and must keep working on them. Have a pair of socks and a neckwarmer on the needles for my best friend … if I only get one done before Christmas that is OK … her birthday is in January! Gotta stay off computer tonight…spent last night tracking election results.

  4. That’s me! And my lovely hat… I do love my hat! Wore it today with my wool winter coat for the first time- summer is over!

    Thank you everyone for voting for me!

  5. I will be going to the Knicker’s/Cab’s Pajama Dinner tonight. Yes, you wear your jammies. It’s a good time. My knitting goes along every year. I can’t tell you here what I’m taking, as it’s part of BFF Liz’s Christmas present and she might read it, but if you promise not to tell her I’ll let you know. πŸ˜€

  6. HA! I’m putzing on the computer. πŸ™‚ I’m having some wrist pain (knitting related of course!), so instead of knitting I’m cruising the knitting websites that I like. (Your blog and Vogue Knitting’s 360 to be exact.)

  7. I should be studying instead of putzing on the computer, but I just have to tell you how cute that Loopy Christmas yarn is in person. Well, you know, you saw it in person. But still.
