But if someone asked me to list my Top Five Tools for Knitters, this would FOR SURE be included.
Because really, if you're going to spend a wad of cash on yarn, then invest a whole bunch of your time making something, don't you want to be able to keep that thing looking nice as long as possible?
Last winter I took before and after pictures while I was de-fuzzing one of my sweaters. NIGHT AND DAY, people!
Good as new! --->
The Gleener kind of feels like a big razor. You hold the middle of the handle and just drag it across the surface of your fabric, holding the fabric taut so the pills slough off easily. The Gleener comes with 3 different detachable heads and the instructions (and some experimentation) will tell you which head works best for each type of fabric. It's VERY easy to use, and it gives results that are far, far better than any of the other "sweater shaver"-type products I've tried in the past.
Now that I'm a few months into sweater season, I've had to get my Gleener out to shave a few of my more-often-worn sweaters. And it occurred to me - maybe one of my blog readers needs of of these things! So I stopped by Bed, Bath & Beyond and picked one up this morning. Leave a comment below to enter your name in the drawing! Make sure to put your e-mail address in the comment form so I can contact you if you're a winner. Your e-mail address won't display, but it will allow me to click on your name and send you a congratulatory note if your name gets drawn!
I'll be promoting this giveaway on my Facebook business page, too, so you can enter your name more than once if you click over to that page, "Like" my business page, and "Share" the Gleener Giveaway post! (posted Jan 21 if you have to scroll through a few things to find it.)
I want to leave this post up for a couple weeks to give people a chance to enter, so I'll do the drawing on the day I release my February knitting pattern, which will likely be on Feb 3rd or 4th.
Good Luck & Happy Gleening!
