This yarn guide makes stranded knitting significantly quicker for me. I knit English style (flicking) and this makes it so easy to grab the correct yarn when I'm working. It has also held up well to a lot of use. It's one of my favorite notions. I recommend trying to wear it a few different ways to see what is most comfortable.

Love this gadget....was not sure at first. Had to work with it. Fits end of finger, I knit English style...my double point knitting is so much faster and comfortable now!

It's a nifty idea, but I'm not sure I'll be able to use it. I am a petite person with slim hands and the ring is too tight for me. It only slides on to just around the first knuckle before it's not comfortable. The little plastic hinge doesn't look like it would last very long either. I knit Continental, so I'm just going to keep trying to use it to see if it becomes more natural. I can see that one would be more motivated to make it work when knitting from multiple balls, but I haven't tried that yet.

I purchased both the yarn guide and stranded yarn guide. I find them very uncomfortable to use. One reason might be my throwing technique, which I admit is not the best. The main reason I cannot use them is that the edges are quite hard and sharp and are most uncomfortable on my finger. A small purchase, but would not recommend to others.

I bought this on a whim after reading the other reviews saying that the stranding guide worked well to relieve tension. All I can say is, it works great! I crochet quite often and recently injured my finger, so I wanted something to help keep my fingers relaxed. I needed to spend a few more dollars to get free shipping, so this went in the bag. I was afraid it would take some getting used to, but it's quite comfortable and easy to use. I have long thin fingers, however, and since I'm keeping this on my forefinger, it is a bit loose. I secure it comfortably on my knuckle and insert the thread in the gap closest to the tip of my finger. It doesn't slip much, but it would be nice if I could tighten this to suit my needs. It will stretch outward to fit larger fingers, but there is no way to tighten it to a smaller diameter. I am sure one day soon I will try this with colorwork, and I don't foresee any difficulties. A great buy!
