Meet the tactile measuring tape


Hi there!  It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox once more.  Today I’d like you to meet the tactile measuring tape and it’s all in keeping with my low tech tips.


This nifty little thing as I will call it is neither a gadget or device.  It is truly below the realms of technology and is simply a measuring tape with tactile dots to mark off the half and whole inches.


Whoever developed the tactile measuring tape simply used common sense to do it.  I have the 60 inch version.  It is made out of very sturdy material and the half and whole inch indicators are clearly marked off with dots and holes with dots representing the half inch and the holes representing the whole.


I bought the tactile measuring tape when I started learning how to knit.  It is a God send to me and now I use it for so many other things.  One just needs to be careful when placing it on a surface such as a table or counter.  Just ensure that both ends are securely held down so that the tape itself does not slip and run away on you.
