Have you seen this in Interweave Knits? We were featured in Fall 2010 issue!
Our very own Sock Keeper is designed to protect your knitted sock in progress from dropped stitches and lost needles. The simple style is effective and there are no parts or end caps to lose. There is no risk of warping or bending your double point needles with our double pointed needle (or dpn) stitch keepers either since there is no elastic to put stress on them.
We make our Sock Keepers from solid hardwoods. They are hand sanded to a perfectly smooth finish and sealed with linseed oil for a final lasting touch. The cord is worsted weight cotton yarn, which is easily replaceable should you ever need to do so. Each Sock Keeper is a made from a solid piece of walnut, cherry, oak, mahogany, or other exotic woods. The picture is a representative of the product has it’s own unique character.
The groove will accomodate up to a 7″ long set of needles, and shorter ones will work as well. I use mostly 6″ needles for socks and it works perfectly with these.
To use these you need only to place the work in progress in the groove and wind the cord around until there is just enough cord left to insert in the slits on each end to hold them in place. It’s that simple, and they have been well tested by me and others and found to work great!
