I need a “tail catcher”. Something that catches short ends of threads in the back. This happens quite often during a “frogging” session where threads have to be pulled because of a counting mistake or thread change. I’m thinking I should get some self-threading needles. It seems there are different kinds out there.
- The original open eyed needle threads from the top. It is also called the
“self threading” or “French Spring eye” or “Calyx eye”
- “One Second Needle“TM, sold by Telebrands, threads on the side of the eye
and is a licensed version of the “Spiral Eye Needle” It is being discontinued.
- SENCHTM needles thread on the side of the eye
- Spiral Eye(R) Needles thread on the side of the eye.
A little review from Mary Corbet of NeedleNThread on Sprial Eye Needles
I would like to get a couple of SPIRAL EYE size 26 needles to do this job.
They are available on Nordic Needle or from Spiral Eye.
