Exciting thing! The awesome knit designer Sarah Wilson (who I got to meet and hang out with awhile back), aka The Sexy Knitter, in addition to designing fabulous patterns (I love this and this!), makes these handy Knitter’s Tool Tins…
And for this month only, there are 5 Tool Tins available featuring my photos! So cool!! She sent me one of each (for free, blogger disclaimer) so I’ve had a chance to check ’em all out, and try out the tools. Each tin is filled with all that you see here.
In a Tool Tin, you get: a colorful tape measure, tiny scissors (she just launched a new kind of scissors this month, sharper than her old style, and all different colors – I tried them out and they totally work, while also being adorable), a stitch holder, a cable needle, a double-ended crochet hook in 2 sizes, 5 stitch markers (very cute!), and 3 types of sewing needles which stay on the lid of the tin with a magnet!
These are the 5 photos of mine which are available on the tins right now:
And then two really different samples of Mikkey, the yellow-y one in Jill Draper Makes Stuff Adirondack and Madelinetosh Tosh Merino, and the neons one in Space Cadet Elara. The photos all look a little different on the tins, but they look nice.
The tins are $25 plus shipping in Sarah’s etsy shop – the ones with my photos will only be around until the end of September! Unless you place a wholesale order; anyone can order in bulk at the wholesale price (you don’t need a special wholesale license), $150 for a dozen tins, and you can continue to get old designs after they’re retired. (If you have a dozen knitter friends/family members, this could make a great holiday gift purchase!) You can also get all 5 of these leethal tins at the discounted price of $100, through September only.
But hey guess what – Sarah is offering a coupon code to you, leethal knitters! For the next 10 days only, enter code LEETHAL to get 20% off your order of $25 or more from The Sexy Knitter etsy shop (except for the wholesale/bulk orders).

One last fun note: If you have a knitting photo that you think is tin-worthy, Sarah is always looking for new tin photos! Show her your photo (contact her through etsy) and if it does get picked to be used on tins, you get the tin for free! I know mine are going to get lots of use!
