Knitting sheath with clew
A very functional knitting sheath with a clew to hold the yarn.
The wide hook of the clew was made to hold the big center pull cakes of yarn from my jumbo winder. Clews to hold other shapes of yarn balls have other shapes. Clews to hold yarn balls being unwound from the outside need swivels.
