World’s Smallest Sock Blocker – a Handy Needle Gauge!

Personalized especially for us, this wooden needle gauge is in the shape of a sock blocker, with an opening at the top to attach it to a chain or ribbon. the best thing about this gauge is that it contains every metric size, from 2.0mm to and all the corresponding US sizes as well, from 0 to 13, including two #1’s (2.25mm and 2.5mm) and two #3’s (3.0mm and 3.25mm) to allow for the ‘in-between’ metric sizes of needles that we have no equivalent for in our US sizes.

This is a very useful tool — $10.00

Stitch Keeper

Traveling with double pointed needles can be difficult; they get pulled out of your work or stick through your bag. Stitch Keepers will solve the problem! The cups hold the points of the needles even when they are carrying stitches, keeping the needles together and stitches safe. Thanks to an enterprising knitter/jewelry maker we can offer these great gadgets.

Available in three sizes, the smallest will work for all five size 0 to 3 needles, the largest for up to a set of size 7. Five lengths available for all of your dp needles; 4", 5", 6", 8", and 10".

Please specify chosen length and cup size. $6.50 each

Available in three sizes: 3/4” 1.1/4” and 2” (please specify size desired)

Perfect Needle

The Pefect Needle for attaching the outer edge to an Haapsalu Shawl!.

This long needle is the best tool I have found for sewing the edge onto an Haapsalu Shawl or Scarf. 4.5" long, it is long enough to gather up many stitches, but not too long to be uncomfortable to use. The 'point' is actually a small ball tip, making it easy to enter the complete stitch without snagging or splitting your yarn.

For more about sewing the edge onto an Haapsalu Shawl, see my book Knitted Lace of Estonia and the accompanying DVD or check out my Craftsy Class Estonian Lace Explained.

This is a very useful tool -- $2.50.
