Write about your favourite knitting or crochet (or spinning, etc) tool. It can either be a tool directly involved in your craft (knitting needles or crochet hook) or something that makes your craft more pleasurable – be it a special lamp, or stitch markers.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a Stitch Marker Hoor. Because I almost exclusively knit in the round, and because I like waist shaping and short row bust darts and other things, having a cache of stitch markers is Serious Business.
My favorite functional stitch markers are the plastic heart-shaped markers made by KA, but they’ve become a little more scarce. (I may need to buy out the stock so that I never go without!) To mark the beginning of the row, I like the Beckoning Cat that I received as part of a swap package from a few years ago. Seeing the little cat cheering me on always makes me happy as I end a row. I got some good news today and I may have to buy myself some more…do I want the Dia de los Muertos set, or would a Sherlock-inspired bunch be more my speed?
