Knitter's Review
April 14, 2005

found in my great grandmother's bead basket They say necessity is the mother of all invention. This was certainly the case when Trina Webb found herself with a plethora of stitches and no way to hold them.

Her husband came to the rescue, crafting an enormous stitch holder out of a household coat hanger.

Word spread, and soon the Webbs were in business. Today the holder is sold in pairs under the label Knitters Friend.

Join me for a closer look at these stitch holders on steroids.
