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.

The clew is cool! Thanks for showing this!

The clew works fairly well. The question is were those knitting sheaths with chains and hooks their ends for holding the knitting or the ball of yarn. And, I really do not know the answer to that question.

Maybe I will be able to work it out while knitting the next couple of ganseys, But it would be very nice if others would try variations of hooks for holding knitting.
