Greatest invention since sliced bread....

That is if you knit socks with double pointed needles. One of the challenges of transporting sock knitting using 5 sharp double pointed needles has been in how to "corral" the needles for transport. I did invent one made of two large thimbles with a hole punched in the middle of each and I knotted a piece of elastic and the two thimbles just sort of capped the needles. This method was kind of ok but I kept misplacing the gadget.

I see others have had the same problem, and finally somebody invented this great gadget:

I was amazed when I saw this in person the other day over at SFTH. An excellent invention! Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
