The Knitting Barber Cords.

The Knitting Barber Cords are back in stock! These little tins hold colorful silicone stitch holders, perfect for putting sleeve or body stitches on hold as you’re knitting a seamless sweater.

These flexible tubes are designed to slip onto the point of your needles for easy transfer of live stitches from needles to Knitting Barber Cords and back again. Each tin has three cords, one measuring 60″ and two measuring 30″.

I’ve been using these Cords to hold the sleeve stitches on my “Anker’s Summer Shirt,” and can attest that it’s a much faster transfer than my usual method, slipping stitches onto waste yarn using a darning needle.

The Knitting Barber Cords are $18 and come in loads of colors – look for them here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop!

Cocoknits Stitch Holder Kits.

We always look forward to new products from Cocoknits, and I’m pleased to report that the latest is here at the shop! Let’s take a closer look at Cocoknits’ Stitch Holder Kits.

The Stitch Holder Kit consists of three leather cords and two needles they can screw into, and they’re made to be used in lieu of scrap yarn whenever you need to put lives stitches on hold.

Like all Cocoknits products, the packaging has been as carefully designed as its contents, with beauty and utility equally in mind.

These sturdy boxes should hold up in your notions case, especially if you have a nice roomy one like our HYS Zipper Bag.

Look for all kinds of Cocoknits products here at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop, from stitch stoppers and yarn snips to claw clips and blocking mats and more. See you in the notions section!
