When I picked up my sheepy bag yesterday from Lorraine, I mentioned that it was big enough that I could carry a sock project with me when I was out and about. She wondered just how I would be able to keep the needles from poking holes in everything.
And that, my friends, is the magic of WIPs keepers. I explained that I had these little gadgets that helped keep the needles in the project and the points protected when be dragged in and out of my purse.
The picture above shows the Keepers on my current sock in progress (yarn from Yarn Hallow, color way Dove Gray I think, with silver sparkles) (link is to her ETSY shop). The WIPs keepers help prevent the needles from breaking, poking holes in other items, and most importantly, helps keep me from pulling the sock from my purse without the needles. Saves a lot of aggravation that way.
They make knitting on the go so much easier. And easier to lug around than my Jeweled Sporto.
