Trying to decide on an interchangeable needle set reminds me of buying a home. Okay, maybe it’s not quite the same level of commitment, but in both cases, you’ll be living with the decision for a long time, and discovering the little flaws as you go. When I decided to add a few brands of interchangeable needles to my shop, I did a lot of research, and I figured other knitters could use it to, so I created a chart that compares 14 brands of needles. This chart gives you a side-by-side look at the most important elements of the best-known interchangeable knitting needles systems. While this may not offer enough detail for you to decide which kit is right for you, it will at least help you narrow it down to the systems you’d like to know more about. You’ll find it – along with some other posts about interchangeables – over on my blog.

In the end, I decided to stock ChiaoGoo metals needles, and KA Seeknit (based in Japan) bamboo needles to start my needle shop, but I am always open to answering questions and helping knitters find their dream needles, even if it leads you away from my shop.

Introducing the Bobble Buster sweater (in both kids and adult sizes), a top-down circular yoke, sprinkled with all-over bobbles. There’s no stranded colourwork or intarsia, and there are so many ways to have fun with this pattern. Use one colour for your bobbles – or an infinite variety. Use up your tiniest scraps, show off a treasured mini skein set, or best of all, get a curated dyed-to-order kit from dyer Annie Paaren, my collaborator and the inspiration for this design.

Join me for a cast-on party over on Instagram from January 1 to 7. I’d love to see your first few rounds and the yarns you’ve chosen. Tag your post with #bobblebuster and #castonparty so we can find each other. If you want to keep the community spirit going as you knit, join the Bobble Buster KAL, running from January 7 to February 28. I’ll be hosting this on Slack, a great place to share images and messages, but you will need an account and an invite. Prizes will include products from my shop, plus fun items from Bad Betty Knits, and pretty yarn! Winners will be drawn at random, from FOs (finished objects) and mostly FOs (slow knitters deserve prizes, too).

Bookmark it & put it on your calendar! On Black Friday (November 27th) get 30% off Yoke O’Clock Kits (limited stock remaining), the Knitter’s Book Case in felt and suede, which stores 24 interchangeable needle tips, and the Knitter’s Brief Case, which can hold 9 needle tips and can work alone or as an add-on to the Book Case. I’m not sure when or if I’ll be re-stocking these products, so if you’ve had your eye on them, now’s your chance.

Then on Cyber Monday (November 30) get 25% off any and all of my knitting patterns available on my website. (Hey, did you know my mailing list subscribers get deep discounts like this every time I release? Just sayin’.)

I’m excited to share two new cases and a bit of re-branding! The Knitter’s Book Case is now called The Original Case, and is joined by two new designs, The Flip Case and The Stretch Case. All three are exclusively offered in leather, with a wool felt lining in the Flip Case, and are now listed for preorder, closing November 9. (They’ll ship in early December to arrive in time for the holidays in the USA and Canada.)

The Flip Case stores up to eight needle tips, and has two pockets for cables. I love this design, because it really is so flexible. It can lay flat as an add-on inside your Original Case and transform into a convenient needle wallet by folding over. Thanks to a simple elastic closure, the fold line can move depending on the length of the needles you store in it.

The Stretch Case is inspired by classic pencil cases that strap around binders and notebooks. I started working on this when I was using my Original Case on road trips (sigh, remember those?) I really wanted access to my notions without having to open the whole case up – plus it allows you to store some bulkier items that don’t fit as well in the interior pocket of the Original.

The Original is offered in my usual Dark Brown and Deep Black, and a special edition Red. And just for this batch, I’m offering a custom embossed monogram in the centre front panel.

The Knitter’s Book Case has gotten an expansion pack!

Earlier this spring, I introduced the Knitter’s Book Case, designed to hold multiple sets of interchangeable needles and leave lots of room for extras. But what if slots for up to 24 needle tips just isn’t enough? Introducing the Knitter’s Brief Case. This versatile interchangeable needle case can work as a standalone or as an add-on for the larger Knitter’s Book Case. With two pockets for cables, a large zippered pouch for notions and slots for up to nine pairs of needle tips, the Brief Case expands the capacity of the Knitter’s Book Case by more than a third, and has two slots devoted to really big needles – up to 15 mm.

Even when completely full, the Brief Case folds easily inside a jammed Book Case, adding only about 1″ to the width.

The Brief Case is also ideal for putting together a project-specific toolkit. Working on a pattern that calls for two needle sizes, three cord lengths, snips, stitch holders and a darning needle? Move them from your larger case to the Brief Case for the duration of the project.

Just like the Book Case, the Brief Case is made from 100% wool felt and suede and is cut and assembled by hand in Montreal.

Introducing the Knitter’s Book Case, an interchangeable needle case that is designed for the knitter with a large collection of tools. With ample space for multiple needle sets and essential notions, you can store everything in one place. Unlike a needle roll, the Knitter’s Book Case stays flat and keeps its shape even when full. It’s about the size of an iPad or a notebook (hence the name) and fits easily into most bags and purses.

A few highlights:
Slots for up to 24 pairs of interchangeable needle tips
Maximum needle size 10mm, can store needle tip lengths from 3.75″ to 6″
Four pockets for cables – sort by length or by brand
Large zippered pocket for notions and add-ons like connectors and stoppers – will even fit crochet hooks and DPNs up to 8″ long
Magnetized area for stitch markers & darning needles – strong enough to keep even large items like scissors in place, even when you are on the go

The cases are handmade in small batches in Montreal from the finest materials. The exterior and lining are 100% wool felt, an ecological and sustainable fabric that meets OEKO-TEX standards for safety and the interior pockets are suede, ideal for keeping needles firmly in place – no more wandering needle tips!
