I've been looking at these knitters' tools from Karatstix for quite a while now. I've wanted to get one of her WPI (wraps per inch) tools for quite a while, but everything in her etsy shop seems to sell out so quickly I never could get one.
And then I saw the set that Illi had custom ordered with her dogs pictured - so I decided to try and order a set inspired by Sherman. After a couple e-mails and an exchange of pictures I was assured that a likeness of Sherman was possible and that I'd have my tools in a few weeks.
I think the likeness is right on and better than I'd even hoped it would be. She even got a couple of different poses too. I probably got a few more tools than I'll ever need but it was hard to choose and they are unique.
I love the WPI tool and I'm now have that on my key ring. The little oval piece with the ring attached has instructions for kitchner stitch on the back. There are bobbins to hold emergency sock yarn, a knitting stitch guage. a couple different needle sizers, and some stitch markers too. Just about everything I could possibly need. If you are looking for your own cool tools or a neat gift for a knitter contact Karatstix. She does small orders too. You don't have to go overboard like I did, just order the tool that's right for you.
