Cast On Comb

I have been working on a cast on comb, I think i have become a cast on comb aholic. I have them in various sizes from 5 pins up to and including 78 pins. My method of storing them, I have a basket that I have placed sheets of cardboard that are about 8 x 12 inches, i hook the hooks onto the 8 inch side of the card board, each comb gets its own board, except for the short ones, they share the space with other short one. It works surprisingly well. I have not solved the longs ones yet, but my mind is working on. it. Each cast on comb eventually will get its own rag hem. I am planning on posting a how-to video on creating the cast on comb that i use

  4. I did not like the cup hooks either, the paper clips were ok but I could not get them to line up right.

    the drapery hooks are ok but they are sharp (great for hanging, but not for my hands when I grab too tight.


Please let me know what you think.
