I had to wait a couple weeks for a new shipment to arrive before I could get my hands on this adorable little thing...but I'm glad I did!
The case is lightweight, but well-made and durable. I was especially pleased with the suppleness of the transparent plastic material on the front of the case, as well as the zipper. Two small things that elevate the overall quality greatly!
Also, the size of the case is perfect for me. I love that it's slim and fits effortlessly into my knitting bag. The little pocket inside is a cute little quirk that makes the case unique as well as functional. I tuck my darning needle and a pair of snip-n-slips in there...perfect!
All in all, I love this case. It's not big enough to hold all my notions (I have waaay too many) but it holds the essentials, plus a couple extras. I highly recommend this case....in the Foxy print!
I think I liked the idea of these more than I had a tangible need for them, when I ordered them. But once they arrived, I found all sorts of ways to put them to use and can no longer imagine knitting without them. Especially when working cables or otherwise advanced patterns, they can take a lot of the guesswork out of place markers.
These double points feel great in my hands. They've got a silky smooth finish that has just enough grab. And not only are all the different colors rich in tone and gorgeous to look at, they make it easy to identify the size!
I do not think this bag was worth the 9 bucks I paid for it. The canvas and zipper are both heavy-duty and durable. But the finishing was disappointing. It's a sturdy bag, but the fraying at the end of the zipper and odd bits of thread sticking out here and there make it look kind of cheap, which it isn't. Then again, my particular bag could just be an anomaly. All that said, I like it, I've put it to good use. It just wasn't quite what I was hoping for.
I'll give this 4 stars, because the colors are just jaw-droppingly gorgeous. I do wish it were softer, and am hoping that in time, with wear, it will be. But hands down, it's some of the most vibrant, eye-catching yarn I've ever had in my stash.
I bought this case because I'm leaving on vacation soon, and wanted something to help me pare down my knitting bag for the road. This case is PERFECT. I can easily fit everything I need for knitting on the go, and then some. It's beautiful and silky and roomier than it looks. If you're partial to dpns, circulars & interchangeables, and you like to have options without bringing your whole knitting bag along, you should own one of these!
These have a lovely finish and a nice, smooth, balanced feel to them. Personally, I like the shorter length 9...they make it easier to work at smaller gauges when knitting flat and narrow. And I don't feel like my size 2s are going to snap apart if I have to work a tight stitch or two. Very happy with these, will be buying more of them in the future, no doubt.
Love that these don't have that lame coil that always snags my delicate fabrics and especially yarn. They are pretty tiny, so beware of losing them to the carpet or the dark depths of your notions bag. They don't come in a handy little pouch like other stitch markers do. But they're inexpensive and great to have. I use them a lot when I work with fingering and lace weight yarn. If you're inclined towards adding them to your cart, I'd highly encourage it
