The platform has 2 slots that contain foam inserts that allow you to stick your needles into and hold your project to the top of the platform. Holding your project in place in this manner really frees up your hands on larger projects. The foam inserts are replaceable in the event that they deteriorate due to repeated pin insertions. We provide an extra set with the unit and additional sets are available from Nancy's Knit Knacks for a nominal charge.
The egg and the platform are both removable from the post and the base is also detachable from the post. You can easily disassemble the unit and carry it with you. The post is tapered on the top where the Egg and The Platform connect, and it has a threaded metal stud on the other end which connects to the base.
Both the egg and platform have flat areas on their top surfaces and this provides a great surface with which to arrange your seam as you start the seaming process. The balance of the surfaces are rounded.
There have been various "darning egg" products in the past, but our new Seams So Easy™ is a real step above. By offering 2 different shaped tools in the kit and the ability to hold the unit between your legs (which is the key feature), the traditional darning egg tool has graduated into a highly useful tool for all types of knitters.
Our new Seams So Easy™ started shipping early November 2011!
Retail price: $50.00
This tool was designed by NKK to be a highly useful tool for knitters. Although this product is relatively simple (you might think), there was a tremendous amount of engineering that we had to expend to finalize the various elements of the design. In fact, during the development we thought many times that the overall design did not seem to be so easy!
Seams So Easy™ is a quality engineered product designed and manufactured in the USA.
You will wonder why someone did not invent this tool earlier and you will become totally spoiled after using it!
The unit comes packaged in a quality white box that can be used as a permanent storage container.
Some of the following photos are of an earlier prototype which did not have the foam inserts installed.*
