I have been knitting with DPNs (double-pointed needles) for years and I've NEVER seen these needle holders before! I was on Instagram where someone I follow shared one and I thought it was one of the coolest knitting tools to have to keep your stitches from falling off a needle. I found the great sushi print one from The Nome Knitter. And then...I found out she has a great (ie., simple) tutorial for sewing up your own. Be prepared to see some here, MUST HAVE MORE!!!!
