Mini Wooden Cassette Tape Needle Gauge


This laser engraved and cut wooden needle gauge is a handy tool to have in your knitting tools, and makes a great gift for your favorite knitting child of the '80s! Remember sitting tirelessly by your boombox waiting for the perfect song to come on to add to your new mixed tape, and then listening to it until the tape player decided to eat it? Now you can bring back that old feeling, without the fears and tears of the tape being eaten.

Gauge measures needles from sizes US 0-13 (2mm-9mm) and sizes are engraved in both US and metric sizes. US sizes are engraved above metric sizes. There are two size US 1 and 2 knitting needles, sometimes referred to as size 1 1/2 and 2 1/2, the metric 2.5mm and 3mm; I have included all four of these on this gauge; perfect for sock knitters!

Would you like to personalize your knitting mix? This item has room for personalization on the tape's "label". Some examples may be: Leah's mix, Leah's Knit Hits, etc. The max amount of characters is 18 including spaces and punctuation, the recommended max is 16.

Compact in size, it measures only 2 1/16" by 3 1/8" by 1/8" and will easily fit into my full deluxe notion tins, as shown in the sixth photo. Laser engraved and cut from solid cherry hardwood in my Central Wisconsin studio.
