The Needle Keeper not only protects your needles, but they also hold the live stitches on your needles, protect the joints of your needles (where the cable meets the shaft), protect the materials in your bag, and the bag itself. You can feel free to shove your knitting and needles into your bag with no worry!
Safely carry your knitting wherever you go: on the commuter bus; at the doctor's office; during lunch; on a road trip; in your back pack; to and from class. Use them on each knitting project you have WIP (work in progress).
Within 3 seconds of stopping knitting your needles and knitting are protected and you can quickly shove everything into your bag and move on with no worries!
Simply slide your needles into the black end...that's it! Needles WILL NOT come out until you take them out. Will not slip, slide, wiggle or otherwise get loose. Will not bend, break, nor get damaged. Your needles won't snag nor get tangled up on what else is in your bag. I can't show you here, but you can even SHAKE your needles by their cable and the Needle Keeper and your needles are not going anywhere! Total peace of mind.
EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT, yet practically indestructible thanks to innovations in metallurgical alloys; you (or your burly husband) cannot bend them with your bare hands, and you'd have a real hard time bending them with tools too! (I told you, they're really innovative!)
There are no sharp edges to snag your yarn, fingers nor anything else. I am a knitter, and I am very cautious about this. They are professionally smooth finished. There is only a cap on one end, as that's all that's needed. Another would just cost us both more and be extraneous.
A Needle Keeper will hold up to size US #9 / 5.5mm (both needles). If you want to protect larger, use two!
If you have a color preference, please put that in your order comments. We will do our best to accommodate, but cannot promise. We believe you will love these, no matter what color!
