Knitting Needle Cases

Wooden knitting needles

Back to knitting corner

I am a jeweler who has been knitting for many years.  In 2003, when I couldn't find a needle gauge that had all the sizes I wanted, I decided to design my own. Since then, many others have wanted to use it, too.  I'm happy to share it with you!

Customer comments:

Received my order today.  What lovely markers... love them and can't wait to use them!  Thank you for your quick service!
Fran W, North Waterboro ME

I love the fact they are small and elegant, and don't catch on the fibers - definitely my choice for lace, which is where I use the largest number of markers (I use them each repeat unless the edge stitches in a repeat keep changing as in the project I am currently working on).

Thank you for your lovely product!
Dianna B,  Holden, ME.

.. Your stitch markers are the best I've found for lace knitting they don't catch, they don't dangle, they don't get in the way.
Sue G., Victoria, Australia

I absolutely love your markers for knitting lace. They never snag and have just that little touch of sparkle to really make knitting enjoyable.
Julia A., Colorado Springs, CO.

.my wonderful friend sent me some of your knitting markers, which I adore so much I had to buy more for myself! I've been knitting for 20+ years and have never enjoyed any markers as much. I'm sure I'll be a
repeat customer. :-)

I've just ordered two sets from you. They are SUPERB -- they don't feel clunky/sticky/interfering, and I just love them.   Maryjo O., Gold River, CA

I'm using the "stop and go" right now to keep my sanity on a pair of socks I'm knitting hit and miss - a few rows here and there. It's suddenly SO much easier!
