When I first saw a picture of the Clover Yarn Cutter Pendant, I knew it was destined to be mine! On our recent holiday, I got to the airport and had a quick rifle through my handbag for anything that might be restricted… and came out with 3 pairs of nail scissors, which I only had for yarn cutting purposes. Oops.
While nail scissors are usually ok on flights (I think the blade has to be under a certain length), I have heard of some people having them removed at flight security so I wanted to make sure I was completely safe to continue my crochet on the road (well, in the air!).
Also, when I carry nail scissors in my handbag, I tend to stab myself with them when I’m rummaging around, and injured hands are hard to crochet with – so something had to be done!
I knew the Clover yarn cutter pendant was the answer to my woes as soon as I saw it. A round blade safely tucked away in an attractive pendant, it slices through yarn in seconds without the need to carry scissors.
Clover make yarn cutter pendants in a couple of colours – I went for the lovely antique gold. I didn’t fancy wearing it as a necklace (mostly because I’d forget to put it on every day!), so I’ve put it on a keyring – so I should have it in my bag at all times – if I remember my keys…
So far I’m really impressed with my yarn cutter keyring – it’s a nice cheap item which will make a real difference for me.
Clover also make thread cutter pendants, which are just as attractive but have slightly smaller openings to access the blade. I know a few embroiderers who might like these – and I might have just given away some birthday present spoilers! 🙂
