If you’re not a knitter the point may be a little obscure, but just trust me, it’s cool. And be sure to watch the youtube video of how it works:

    This is awesome, Katie. The reason I don’t often attempt complex patterns is that I’m horrible at keeping track of it all, and often end up frogging three or four times just because I forgot where I was! What a wonderful integration of technology & good old-fashioned knitting. Thanks for sharing!
