That bracelet is wonderful! Some people are just so smart and talented! I would love one!

Rachael not only do I love your books. But I love those bracelets or boobles as my grandmother would call them. Went to there site and can't find the stitch markers. Love that Idea.

Pretty and useful - excellent!

If I don't win, I'm buying one of those! So cute and handy.

love it! i'd heard of them, but never seen a video speling out how they work. THANK YOU for making this!

I asked for one for my birthday and my husband finally confessed he had no clue what I was talking about so if I could just get one and hand it to him to give me, he'd be happy to get me one... lol.

Rachel, be a dear and help a girl out... love ya buckets!

I have become a knitting FIEND this holiday season, so this would be VERY helpful! And, I <3 your hair! :D

happy holidays all

not sure i've ever seen one but my blind friend uses them exclusively. I can't even tell you how many pages of notes I must write down as i do each row. wow it'd be way too easy to get used to using a wrist one.

thanks for the giveaway,

Very cool! Ineed more counting tools....now only if I could remember to use them!

I would love to win this, as i'm going in to hospital soon for a neck operation and then hernia operation, and plan to knit in hospital and recovery. im only 32 and feel bad i'm leaving kids soon to get this done. wishing all the others goodluck to for the competition.

Cool! I really want one!

WOW! I've never seen these before!!! Love the idea and would love even more to win one!

Wow I love these. Did not know about them!

Digit complains just like my cat does!

Love these.

Digit! Digit! Digit!!! lovelovelove...
Sweet giveaway, thanks, Rachael! more Digit, plz.

Love the lipstick and love the abacii!

Would love to be in to win one of those

Beautiful and functional, what a terrific idea.
And I especially love your black cat and Digit's voice.

As a somewhat beginning knitter I'm constantly getting lost in my stiches. Tried counters but then I would forget to do those too. Yes, I'm a lunchbox as far as knitting goes, but I haven't given up yet! The bracelet would be a nice addition to my otherwise minimal collection of knitting aids! Just wished you lived closer to the East Coast, I think you would be a fun person to be around! Have a fabulous day!

Hooray for bonus digit! My girl-cat definitely makes that same sound when she's displeased!

Hi Rachael! How rad would it be to win one of these! Hoping to be the lucky comment :) love Digit - such a cutie! I've been knitting up a storm this winter and just taught one of my girlfriends how to knit last week! I finally went to Piedmont Yarn too - triple LOVE! Happy Holidays xoxo

definitely a good idea, love to have one. it would make life easer when I'm knitting, when Joe want to talk.lol

What a great idea! I could definitely use the abacus.

What a clever and beautiful idea!

What a great video! Thank you for showing us how the bracelets work, and I hope I win one!

That is so cool! I've never seen them before.

Knitting and jewelry combined! Two of my favorites in one!

ooh, shiny! :)

Pretty things! (And I'm glad to see video evidence that I'm not the only one who talks to cats like that.)

Love a chance to win one of those beautiful bracelets!

Thanks so much!

So that's how those work! I've looked at pictures and couldn't quite wrap my head around it. Thanks! And for the feline enhancement as well. Fingers crossed!

LOve the idea of a bracelet.....need it.....want it.....
btw I just finished your last book.....oooooo I loved it...thanks for a good read

I love that! What a great idea.

I've never seen anything so cool and I've been knitting for over 40 years. I would LOVE to win one! Thank you!

Oh I've been wanting one of these! I would love ever so much to win one. mimsfam at gmail dot com

What an awesome idea! And lovely, too. I would love to win one.

Oooh, those look awesome! Please add me to the hat.

I never knew how to use one, great information!

Oh yay! So glad to know how those work. I'd love to win one. LOVE the bonus shot of cranky Digit. He cracks me up!

Bonus Digit shot! My, what a growly cat he is. My Tyler is like that when he feels GOOD (how I know he's "off"? He's quiet and friendly, LOL).

Very pretty bracelet and a simply genius idea! Do they have purple ones?

That is really interesting. What a great idea.
I haven't seen anything like it.

That bracelet is genius! I usually do hash marks on a Post-it but I'm always losing them.

What a clever idea! I'll need to look into these more closely. In the meantime here is my entry - thanks for the opportunity to win.

If I win one I will definitely call it a booble, as did Sue Patterson's grandmother!

Those bracelets are lovely!

So, we are doing demonstration speeches (not protest demonstation but how to demonstrations) in class and I have to use this as a good example of speaking...

I love these things, and have been eyeing them from various vendors for about a million years. I've never broken down and obought one though. I'd still love and use one. ;)

P.S. as a fellow chronic migraine sufferer, my bed of nails pain (anti-pain?) pillow is on the way to try. I am intrigued, and hopeful! Thank you for sharing.

Stealth jewelry, disguising a tool. Love it!

I would love to win one of these yay!!

What a novel idea!!!! I never come up with thesethings!!!

So cool! And they're really pretty too.

I need one! Thanks.

Way cool.... Got to love counting and purpose wrapped into one!

I have been looking at these! I would love to have one. If I don't win, I'm buying one for myself! Thanks for the chance to win.

So very cool- I love it!

I love these I have one with Ladybugs....

When I first read "knitting abacus bracelet" I thought, "I understand those words, but not in that order." I'm glad you did a video demo, I don't think I would have been able to grasp a written explanation.

What a clever bracelet that is!

I'd LOVE one of those nifty bracelets! Please pick me!

Wonderful bracelets!

I especially appreciate that Digit gave us attitude. That just seemed right.

Those bracelets are awesome. I'll not want to take them off!

I've been checking these out and soooo want one. Your demonstration was terrific.

WOW!! that is great as a newbee im in love with kntting have only been knitting for a month, im a Quilter., but im a knitter to Now! and very proud of it.. the bracelet is fab! wow so cute so much nicer then my little red cliking box counter, its a must have, I see.. would love to have one, thanks for showing it to us and glad you got a new one....

Digit rules! You have to love those "Heathcliffs"
Knitting abacus is a great idea, and I will have to have one..........dark scary music.......one way or another!

I love things that are both pretty and useful!

Comment, comment. Thanks for the chance! :) XO

Oh, that's amazing!

Those bracelets are so cool!

I have always wanted to try those! Plus they look so pretty! :D

Ohhhh I want one! They're AWESOME!
Pick me! Pick me!

What a great idea, and I love the colour of your demonstration one!

That is a beautiful and useful item! I looked at her shop and think all her items are lovely.

A much more elegant way of counting rows than the plastic row counter I use now or hash marks on a piece of paper.

How pretty!!! I have never used one of these before. Thanks for the opportunity to win one! :)

What a clever idea! I'm always losing my stitch counter thingy, and am way too lazy to activate the knitting app on my feeble iPhone. So this could work for me. Besides, I'm a jewelry girl.

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, lovely! That is a great give away. The second best would be an acupuncture pillow :)

I just found out about those. YOU ROCK giving three away!!!

Great stuff -- and generous giveaway. Thanks for the chance!

Happy Holidays!


Hi Rachael, I would love to win the Abacus bracelet. Fantastic idea. Ear scritch to Digit!

Rachael-I came here to tell you how much I enjoyed Wishes and Stitches to find you are giving away a fabulous useful piece of jewelry! Love both!

Beautiful bracelets!

Brilliant! Function and fashion, can't ask for anything more.

I absolutely *LOVE* their stitch markers. Have commissioned multiple sets in various sizes and beads. These are the markers I make sure NOT to lose! To be honest I've never figured out how that bracelet works - but not that I know it is magic! Thanks for the opportunity to test it in person!

Happy knitting to everyone!

Great video! Thanks for the giveaway!

What a great idea!

I love them! I have decided that 2012 will be my year for knitting sweaters (I've never knit a sweater) & I'll need a row counter. :-)

What a wild video!! I was blown away by awesomeness of it. Don't you just love love love the internet?

I would love to win, thanks!

Genious idea! I would love to win one!

LOVE your books! I actually have some awesome stitch markers from Hide and Sheep, and would be so excited to add this to my knitting tools! Thanks!

I would LOVE to try one of those out! Awesome!!

This looks like a very clever product!

Those bracelets are super-d-duper awesome!!! I might have to order one (or ten)! Thanks for the kitty shots. Love it!!


So cool! Love it!

I never quite understood how they worked before when I saw them around. Very cool and useful. I love it when form and function come together in something so pretty.

Ooh, cool, sparkly, knitting tools that I love! Thank you!

Great idea! Even if I win, I'll have to buy one for my sis who is a compulsive user of row counters. Jo

More accordion videos! Please.

Me! Me! Me! Me! Me!
