Thine CovetJanuary 31, 2008
During this past month I clocked several hours of knitting related online window-shopping. Did I buy anything? No. Did I want to? You betcha! Unfortunately, I am trying to pay off that plastic thing… just don’t tell my husband I am carrying a balance! I am paying it down though, and should be zeroed out soon, and then… well, let’s just say that I have a l-o-n-g Knitting Wish List.
There were so many goodies online this past month! From new and lux yarns to fun knitting toys! Now, who doesn’t love gadgets and do-dads? Make it a knitting gadget or do-dad and I am already sold (maybe that’s why I am carrying a balance!). Of all of the neat things I drooled over his month, I want to share with you the most unique, practical and cutest one. It is handmade by a fellow knitter, KaratStix. KaratStix has her very own
The Spring Knitter’s Rule and WPI Set
Is this not the cutest little knitting tool you have ever seen? I love this Gauge Checker that doubles as a Needle Gauge. And, to top it off who could resist the adorable Alpaca WPI Gauge? KaratStix makes each of these bamboo pieces by her own hand! Amazing! I have been coveting this set since I first spotted it, now I am kicking myself as this particular model is sold out. But please reader, do not fret! There are several other themed models to choose from, such as:
The Sock Knitter’s Rule
Wooly Ewes Knitter’s Rule
And, not to leave out the Crocheter’s out there
Crochet Hooker’s Rule
There are a few other deigns available as well, in addition to the Alpaca WPI Tool and a handy Sock Knitter’s WPI Tool, each sold separately. Have a theme of your own you’d like on a Gauge Rule? KaratStix will also do custom orders!!! Go check out KaratStix’s Etsy Shop… are you still here?
