Makes kit ordering more user friendly
I'm crazy about this needle gauge necklace made by Wisconsin metal artist - and knitting instructior - Erica Schlueter.  A friend of mine has had one for years, and the patina just gets lovelier over time, perhaps owing to the finely textured finish, which is actually knitting patterns embossed in the sterling silver!   I'm thrilled to be able to carry these.  The necklace measures 1 by 1 3/4 inches, comes on a 24" silver box chain, and includes a wallet-sized gauge reference card (US sizes 0-11).  Gift boxed.

You may order here.
