Handmade from bamboo, this is every knitter's best friend. It is a handy ruler with which to measure a standard swatch (4-inch/10-cm square). Measure your swatch in inches on one side and centimeters on the opposite side. When not using it as a ruler, it can be used to determine the size of any knitting needle from US 8-0/.5 mm up to US 35/19 mm.
The gauge was handmade by Karatstix using a laser engraving and cutting machine. It is then sanded and embellished with colored pencils. Finally, it is coated with a satin polyurethane finish and polished to a silky feel. Cared for properly, it will last a lifetime.

When I'm not playing with Jake, I knit, sew, cook, bake, craft, garden, and hang out with my hubby of 8 years. Though "hanging out" normally consists of me sewing in the sewing room/office while he plays Guitar Hero.
I quit my real job two years ago to focus my full attention on becoming a knitwear designer. I have self-published 14 designs. All of which can be located either through Etsy or through Lulu. My latest design is Anastasia Alpaca Stole. My upcoming design is XandO dishcloth.
