Has anyone seen or tried Sock Keepers? http://www.knittingnotionsonline.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=369

MY DSIL sent me a picture of them (I think she bought one), but I don't see the practicality?

I use both dpn's and circulars for my socks, and don't have any problem using Clover stitch holders as a temporary solution, in the event I need to "borrow" a set of dpn's for another quick WIP.

They look cumbersome, in my humble opinion...

TIA!

It took me a bit to figure out how they worked. Finally saw that they work about the same as the tube I bought from Knit Picks. I don't use the tube anymore. I'd rather spend the $$ on yarn.

I think they're for traveling w/ DPNs and not having to worry about them poking through a bag or losing one.

I have the cardboard tube version from Knitpicks (seems simpler) and really LOVE them. Like Melanie said, they keep DPNs from poking through your knitting bag, or from sliding off your knitting when it is not being worked on.

I looked at the Knit Picks version of this (Link Here) and that looks like it would do the same thing for a lot less money. $5 vs. $18 (plus whatever shipping is involved) is quite a big difference.

Just my thoughts.

Check out this beauty http://www.knitzi.com/

Certainly not cheap, but very beautiful! Mine was a gift.

These seem really nice. I habitually fold the four needles into each other, wrap the stitches with the working yarn tight to the middle of all four of them, wrap the sock around the ball and stick the working needle through the whole thing. So far so good but these look really nice. Knitpicks is my price range though, I must admit. *Thinking about it all*

I just fold over everything and put it in a ziploc bag.
