|Measuring gauge (Imported from learning2knit.co.uk)|
This tool is very useful and handy to have in a project bag. I love looking at the variety of these tools, go to Etsy and buy a wooden one in any number of silhouettes. A needle gauge often displays a ruler of measurement marks in inches and centimeters. There are dual sizing stats for your needles. Sometimes, there is an angled window to hold over your gauge swatch for stitch and row counts. Suffice it to say, a handy dandy tool to have.
