Nancy's Knit Knacks Circular Needle ID Tags
Finally a solution has been created for identifying those hard-to-read circular needles.
These little highly engineered plastic tags are designed to snap onto your cables and not fall off.
ID Tags are extruded from a special plastic and the needle sizes
are then "etched" into the yellow surface. The black numbers will
never wear off.
Each Tag has little "barbs" that keep
the cable from slipping out through the slot when they are installed on your
needle. Yet, give them a gentle tug and they are easily removed. They will not
fall off accidentally, either. They simply work great.
Each set includes 29 Tags. The ID Tags are offered in 2 different sets because
NKK has found that knitters tend to use either small or large needles most of the time.
They thought it would be better to give them what they needed and allow them to buy more of a particular size range.
ID Tags sell in sets of 29 tags.
Each set has multiple ID Tags for each needle size.
The more popular needle sizes within each set have 3 or 4 tags each.
See the chart below for more details.
Note: for Sizes 17, 19, and 35, we do not offer Tags for the
Addi Turbo needles because of their unusually large cable diameters and because
they are properly marked already.
