The Knit Kit got my attention on twitter. A store would announce its arrival, and it would immediately be out of stock. What could be garnering that kind of excitement? Well, now I know. The Knit Kit is kind of the “Swiss Army Knife for Knitters.” It is a tape measure, stitch counter, thread cutter, collapsible scissors, crochet hook, stitch holders and tip protectors – all in one compact device – and all TSA (airline) approved. It is small at 4 3/4″ x 3 1/3″ x 5/8″ and weighs only 4 oz.
The Knit Kit was developed by Barbara Barry, a two-year knitter and entrepreneur who was tired of searching for all her knitting accessories at the bottom of her knitting bag. She did internet searches to see if a “grab and go” gadget existed, and when it didn’t, she created it!
