A few weeks ago, Jill at Starstruck Cat Studio showed me some cute little tools she was looking at bringing into the shop. After seeing them, I just had to have some for myself. KaratStix makes these awesome tools out of bamboo that are hand colored and so beautiful.
One side of the sock needle gauge has metric needle sizes
The other side has US sizes.
WIP tool with cutsie sheep.
The sock is about 2" in length, which makes it small and portable-much more portable than my old metal 4x6" gauge. I LOVE them. There are other goodies too. Check out her etsy page or come to Starstruck Cat Design.
