Advent Calendar Palooza: Jimmy Beans Craftvent Day 2

Today’s box is pretty cool.  I assumed needles would be in the box, because you can’t knit without them, but I was pleasantly surprised to find SmartStix as the needles.


SmartStix are needles with a tape measure built right into the tip.  Its actually pretty ingenious and I am jealous I didn’t think of this first.  Having a ruler right on the needles will come in handy when measuring gauge or the length of your knitting, provided you only need to measure a few inches.


If I enjoy knitting with these, I’d consider buying a set.   Hopefully tomorrow’s box actually has some yarn in it so I can try these bad boys out.
