Knitzi I take knitting with me EVERYWHERE.  In the car- to the store…the mall… everywhere. 

Knitters know, the best travel knitting is small, portable and with a pattern that can be memorized.  Socks, are perfect.  Except for the DPN’s poking through your bag and getting snapped in transit. 

No more.  This morning, on Ravelry–  I found a new product made right here, in Michigan.  The Knitzi.   It’s handmade from Great Lakes hardwood.  each end simply screws on and off- a slit in the side keeps the knitting and the DPNs perfectly safe inside.  No more snapped needles.  I also ordered the Knitzi bag- which perfectly holds my knit in progress and knitzi- perfect for putting in my purse or knitting bag.

I have used other types of DPN holders.  Elastic one with plastic caps- fine, but, I’ve also had them pop off while in my bag- resulting in lost and broken needles.  The elastic has also lost it’s stretch….

My new knitzi is quality.  Hand finished- smooth and light.  Available in loads of sizes and more styles are in the works…. I’ll be popping in their site to pick up a few more- I have an SP who’ll be needing one of these in her reveal pkg;)!

OK- I’m not affiliated or anything….. I’m just happy as could be with a new and innovative product- produced right here in Michigan!  Besides- they kindly upgraded me to “pony express”: shipping and a few hours after placing the order- my Knitzi was delivered to my front door! Turns out they are located within just a few miles of my house;) 

I’m always impressed when an order I place online arrives within a week… this was remarkable;)

Go ahead- pop over for a visit— you’ll love them;) 

And here’s a bonus- a beautiful FREE sock pattern! Twinkleberrys It’s your gift for stopping by their site!

I’m sensing Twinkleberry socks for Christmas! 

UPDATED- still loving the Knitzi- and my post is up at LACED WITH GRACE – Just call me twisted— or Crooked….,;)
