Someone was looking for an item that is a crocet hook on one side and the other end was pointed to remove knots,fix snags etc. one woman had said she had one with her knitting machine but did not know where to locate them. another person sad she had one and used it oh her looms . i have gone back almost 2 weeks of posts and can't find it.
so i am hoping whomever posted it would let me know i found the item at patternworks . it's called a dentist knitting too.

I got in touch with Spotlight and they suggested using a crochet hook which I have also used.

To judic., and all others who took the time to research & reply... Thank you so much!!!...I was the one looking for that specific tool ~ I did find the Susan Bates HandiTool :) and yesterday saw the post for the "dentist knitting tool" as well. Both are exactly what I was looking for. In comparing them....thedentist knitting tool appears to be longer, with a much smaller hook on the end.
Again, thank you all !!!!!!

I have not seen that tool, but I have a Circular needle that is a crochet hook on one side and a knitting needle on the other. I think I got it from Pattern Works long time ago. It is called a Knit Pick. Good Luck.

Go to Joann's web site and you will find the Susan Bates Silvalume Handi Tool. You can probably find it on the Susan Bates web site. Buy lots, they make great gifts and are true knitting life savers.

Happy knitting. :-D

I often use a pick that comes in a set with nutcrackers. It is pointy, gently curved, and smooth. It's a case of using what you've got. But it does a good job.

JUST FOUND IT ONLINE AT A CRAFT STORE IN PRINCETON NJ. IT IS ON SALE FOR $1.04. YOU CAN ORDER IT ONLINE FROM JOANN.COM. THE STORE IS ABOUT A 20 MINUTE DRIVE FROM WHERE I LIVE AND WILL PICK IT UP OVER THE WEEKEND.

Am I the only one who thinks spending any money at all on such a 'tool' is a waste? Never mind the shipping and handling fees!

I have steel and aluminum crochet hooks of every size and description, and I have almost all sizes of double-pointed knitting needles. (I'm only 'missing' the ones finer than US#00. Don't think I'll ever really need them.)

Between the hooks and the pointy needles, I can undo any knot that yarn or thread can form.
