I have never before purchased a product from Addi, or from Jimmy Beans, which I have been less than delighted with. Unfortunately, this plastic stitch gauge was a first. I was bitterly disappointed to find that the material it is made of is totally inadequate, and too flimsy for the purpose it is intended for. It looks more like a promotional giveaway than something you would purchase. To add insult to injury, I bought TWO, so that I could have one in more than one knitting bag... If I didn't live in the UK, I would have returned these - but it's just not worth the postage.
