Things that make me happy … beautiful things created by other hands.

Crafter's Rule by karatstix

There’s not much it doesn’t have.  Precisely tooled holes to measure needles, convenient 2- and 4-inch measures for gauge purposes, centimeters AND inches, and even a lobster-claw clasp at the corner.

when I unpacked it.

Perhaps it will help me speed-knit the rest of this test-knit.

Here’s hoping …
