'n' roll'* and simply
fabulous. In fact, it is so very alive and well that people are
creating useful knitting gadgets to help your knitty

Minder that you can download for your iPod Touch, there are a
number of helpful gadgets to assist with your favourite hobby.
Have you ever found
yourself sitting through a boring film in the cinema with a loved one,
that you promised you'd go and see with them, yet all you really
to be doing is your knitting? Well, fear not. The Knit
Light will give you the
perfect light to see your stitches without distracting anyone around
you. You can even sit in bed and knit to your heart's content
having to get up and switch the light on, thus not waking the person
sharing your bed.
Knit Knacks also share with
us telescopic double pointed needle cases, for storing your DPNs, and
WIP holders for holding and protecting your delicate DPNs whilst still
connected to your work. Electronic row counters, pattern holders and
needle and hook gauges are amongst just some of the useful gadgets you
will find on this handy website.
And of course, don't
forget one of the most popular gadgets amongst knitters, the yarn
winder, which turns those
skeins into neatly packed little yarn
