I received a press release the other day about this item called The Knit Kit. Referred to as the “Swiss Army Knife of knitting,” this little kit actually looks pretty cool.
Inspired by the 23 million “knitting enthusiasts” that crisscross the country, the Knit Kit is a handy, must-have tool for beginners and experts alike. It contains everything a knitter needs, all in one tidy tool—a pair of scissors, ring stitch markers, needle tip protectors, a lockable stitch counter, flip-out thread cutter, retractable tape measure, and a built-in crochet hook for picking up dropped stitches.
Measuring just 4 1/2” x 3 1/2” in size, the Knit Kit is TSA compliant, making it the perfect tool for knitting on-the-go. It’s also cost-effective, and just a plain ‘ol time-saver—no more digging around your bag to try and find your knitting tools!
The Knit Kit was introduced in January 2009, and it hasn’t taken long for it to gain a strong foothold in the knitting community, both in the USA and internationally (New Zealand, Germany, England, and France all have Knit Kit fans). More than 10,000 Knit Kits have been sold, and 450 (and growing) retailers carry the product.
The Knit Kit retails for $19.95, and sells only through wholesale to independent retail channels. For more information, as well as a list of store locations, click here. It comes in an ivory kit with pink accessories, but a black and ivory model will be available this June. Also, keep an eye out for the new 2010 edition, as well as the Quilt Kit and the Sew Kit.
With summer right on the horizon—which means vacations, day trips, you name it—the Knit Kit would be the perfect traveling companion. Pick one up soon and let us know what you think.
