but right now this is IT!!
What is it??
It's a dpn holder! A very simple two cap thingy that's attached to with a bit of elastic! Wow. The caps go on the dpn's at each end of the knitting and the elastic stretches to the other side! This way when I throw my knitting into my bag, the dpn's won't wiggle themselves out of my knitting! Whoop!!
See the little black caps at each end of my knitting? A stretchy bit of elastic keeps the caps in place!
Dang I seriously wish I would have thought of this before. I normally just wrap my yarn around each of my dpn's and hope like heck it would all stay together - which it usually didn't. I can't believe I bought this way back before Christmas (yeah.. a little hard to believe that I (me) would buy a knitting gadget at any time I know...) and didn't even use it!!
2 little end caps and one little piece of elastic, that's all there is to it!
This one fits 7 inch needles sizes 0-3. I just happen to have it on size 3's. It's called the... insert drum roll here because it's pretty original and not very descriptive...
STRETCHY Needle Keeper..
(This one was $4.99 less military discount at Yarn Cloud)
Yep.. endorsing products now I know... sorry! BUT it's super fabulous and you gotta get one!
Or get two!! I have the one for the next sizes up as well!! 2 little red caps on that baby!
I'm sure I could craft one of these up using my very crafty brain... but gadgets are so cool aren't they??
