Although I have never been a prolific user of DPNs, a recent project requires them. One of the greatest hassles of knitting with DPNs is the management of them between using them. If you have ever lost a DPN in your car, between the sofa cushions, or, like I did this morning, down the heating/air vent in the living room, then you know what I am talking about! Well, lose those DPNs no longer!
Introducing the Cedar Hill Farm Company version of the needle cozy! I started by making one for myself, and then I just couldn’t stop making them. These handy little cases come in two sizes: 8.5″ x 2.5 ” (21.5 cm x 6.5 cm) and 7″ x 2.5″ (17.5 cm x 6.5 cm). These hand-sewn needle keepers are designed to protect the live stitches of your knitting projects, as well as both DPNs and circular knitting needles. This case will allow you to keep your DPNs in place while storing them between knitting sessions, but it also is ideal for storing your DPNs when not in use. As a case for circular needles, the 8.5″ size allows you to snap the cable into place to prevent it from moving or becoming tangled in your project bag, while keeping your live stitches in place. Because these cozies are 1/2″ deeper than most cozies out there, they are also great for storing you circular needles (both interchangeable and fixed) between projects.
There is quite a variety of patterns and colors in both sizes currently available at cedarhillyarns.com. Check out this new addition to the shop and save yourself a little knitterly aggravation as you knit your way through Socktober!
