It's been a knitterly gadgets kind of week here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop. Along with the Fix-a-Stitch, we also received a shipment of double point work-in-progress tubes, or DP Wip Tubes, for those who like to abbreviate.
Like the Fix-a-Stitch, the DP Wip Tube solves a specific problem simply and well. Say you're knitting a sock on double pointed needles and you want to toss it into your knitting bag. How can you be sure that your live stitches wont accidentally slide off of one of those needles? You could put an individual point protector on each double point, to be sure, or you could carefully fold your sock-in-progress around your needles and hope for the best. The DP Wip Tube offers complete security to your stitches.
Anne is certainly a proponent of the DP Wip Tube, with two in use (and in reach) when our new shipment arrived.
Handy, no? Pick up a set of DP Wip Tubes next time you're at the shop.
