I’ll admit that even though I’ve worked here for several months now, until recently I had never really sat down and gotten to know the Knit Kit. After the two of us had a heart to heart (I have a tendency to bond with inanimate objects), I think we are destined for a long and beautiful friendship. Not only do we both appreciate efficient organization and enjoy knitting on-the-go, we are both from Idaho! Our relationship is not exclusive, however, and several of our customers have given the Knit Kit rave reviews! And if that isn’t enough to convince you of the knitasticness (or crochetrificness if that’s how you role) that is the Knit Kit, Martha Stewart herself, the Grand Priestess of Crafts, will be singing praises of this must-have accessory today on her show, so check your local listings! If you aren’t able to see Martha’s expert appraisal of the Knit Kit, fear not! We will be posting our own video review on the site soon, so be sure to check it out!
If you are not already familiar with the Knit Kit, the original has many nifty “knit knacks” all in one compact and durable device including a 5 foot long measuring tape, thread cutter, crochet hook, row counter, stitch markers, point protectors, and collapsible TSA compliant scissors (yes, you can take them on the plane with you)! The Teal Knit Kit features two new handy-dandy updates wrapped up in this snazzy new color! How can one possibly improve upon such a magnificent invention? Well, the Teal Knit Kit has accomplished that feat and it now features a double ended crochet hook –a large hook for those bulky yarn projects and a smaller hook for more delicate creations—and a darning needle so that no matter where you are, those loose ends can be taken care of in a jiffy!
Referred to as the “Swiss Army Knife” of knitters, the Knit Kit travels easily in any purse or knitting bag and keeps all of the essential knitting accessories organized and easily accessible anywhere you go. If you are like me and make sure that you have a knitting project with you at all times, just in case you can get a few rows in here or there, the Knit Kit is the perfect solution to those moments where you would trade your soul for a pair of scissors or can’t remember exactly what 5.75 inches looks like.
As I mentioned before, the Knit Kit and I have become quite close, and with all the Knit Kit has to offer, I envision us only becoming closer with time ☺
