We have been making the Space Saving Yarn Tree for more than 15 years. Our new G-Carriage Monitor has been on the market for three years and has been very popular. Saves many hours when using your g-carriage. It will let you knit with needles in A pos, and the G-carriage will not stop and go back the other way. Hours are Mon and Tue 10 a.m. to 5 pm. Central Standard Time, or by appointment the rest of the week. I am usually here on Thu, Fri, and Sat. We also have an answering machine for you to leave a message.
