I invented this item because I was knitting socks on size #0 wood needles and broke a few needles in the process as I stored the socks in my knitting bag. Taking my project in and out of my bag, in and out, putting them away quickly when I had to stop knitting, always had me worried. And sure enough, one day I took them out to knit, and one needle was broken.
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!
You will want ONE IN EACH COLOR for all your Works-in-Progress. With the variety of colors, you can quickly glance into your knitting bag and see which Needle Keeper is protecting which project. The bright colors show so well against whichever color yarn you are knitting with, you can grab just the right project with no worries about dropping your stitches.
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.
Available in TWELVE colors!
This Double Cap Needle Keeper has the rubber cap at both ends, so you can insert one end of your circular needle in one side and the other end into the other side.
