New Crochet Gadget

I bought these crochet gadgets the other day. I thought they would be handy for traveling.

I tried one of them out this morning. I like the feel of holding this device as I'm crocheting. What I do not like is the fact that it repeatedly folded back in on itself as I crocheted. I think I expected it to be like pocket knives that are a bit stiff to operate and this is very loose. At the present time, these items are only available at select Walmarts (per a post on Boye Facebook page). The cost for one of these is almost $8.


  1. Pretty cool - I'll have to check those out. :)

  2. Thanks for sharing, they look really cool but by the sounds of it, they might be a bit aggravating to work with unless you find a work around for them having to wiggle around or fold in on themselves while you are trying to work stitches, which kind of defeats one of the main purposes of crocheting to begin with, that being to relax, lol. The concept is really interesting though and I hope in the future they will create a better more sturdy version or perhaps a work around will be discovered to make them stay in place better once unfolded.
