I realize that most of the people wearing this are going to be women with smaller fingers than mine, but there *are* more male knitters out there than most people think. My dad told me about a lot of servicemen learning to knit during World War II so I feel I'm just carrying on that tradition. :-D
It is, however, very small. I have incredibly thin and long fingers so I have no personal problem with chafing, the plastic biting into my skin, or tightness, but I do not recommend it for anyone with wide or stubby fingers (stubby fingers may get the edge of the guide riding up on your cuticle, which is very unpleasant).
(I should note that I have a ring size of 5.5 - 6, which is smaller than most of the sizes that I've seen from other reviewers by at least one, if not one and a half)
Amazon could probably save itself a TON on shipping if they packaged things appropriately.
This came in a box (by itself) that was big enough to put a kleenex box in - it was filled with air pockets to "protect" the paper thin plastic guage that was no more than 3"x3"
It could have easily been put in a brown paper bubble envelope and shipped for 1/3 of what it cost to send the box.
When I recently ran across this tool, I thought it would be the answer to my weave-in woes – and I was right! Not only does this thread work well for pulling in bulky yarns it also works well with finicky yarns that typically unravel when I am trying to thread a needle (example: Premier Spangle) and especially when I am working with multiple thin to average (1 to 4 weight) yarns at one time. Of course, the yarns must be able to fit in the hole so working with two bulky yarns at one time may not work well.
I especially like it for the last as I like to blend various yarns to give my projects my own look and style. The project generally goes great until I am faced with trying to thread a needle with two or more yarns of varying weights. I try to thread them one at a time and it takes forever and sometimes simply does not work. In those instances, I end up weaving in separate yarns which is a true pain to do. Not anymore! I put the multiple yarns in the threader, choose the right big eye needle, thread it and weave the ends in.
I like and use this tool so often, it is definitely going on my gift list for others who work with yarn and that includes those who needlepoint as well as those who crochet and knit.
