Knitting Needle Point Protectors help prevent knitting mistakes



When knitting my recent Tumbling Blocks Blanket, I would set my long circular needles down with care. Each time, I found myself reminding family members not to touch my knitting, and making wishes that gravity wouldn’t slide those precious stitches off my circular needles while away. Yes, I realized it was time to add to my knitting toolbox and finally get some Stitch Stoppers to prevent stitches from sliding off my needles.

Why did I wait? I know there are crafty hacks to make your own Knitting Needle Stitch Protectors, like wine corks or earplugs. But, we don’t drink wine and I kept forgetting to ask for a few from friends. And now during quarantine, dining out with others isn’t about to happen any time soon, so it was time to take action!

I’m so happy to have this set finally! My current Fancy Diamond Stitch pattern was threatening to fall off these slippery metal knitting needles. Now I can put them down for a while, confident the stitches aren’t about to slide off!

There are different styles of Knitting Needle Stoppers and whichever you chose is like an extra little investment of life insurance for your knitted piece. The stoppers I purchased come in a cute little case and were just under ten dollars. Your local yarn shop usually carries little knitting notions and purchasing stoppers locally is my first choice.

However, I personally haven’t been out shopping in a while, so here are three of the options currently available on Amazon to add to your knitting collection.
