<P>Blast From the Past</P>
<P></P>
<P>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.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Is it an <a title="Drew Brees Youth Jersey" href="http://www.neworleanssaintsofficialstore.com/Authentic-Drew-Brees-Jersey" target=_blank>Drew Brees Youth Jersey</a> item that you would recommend to others, and if so for which applications/tasks do you think it is most suited. Conversely, do you have a tool/accessory that you regret buying? Why does it not work for you?</P>
<P></P>
<P>In nineyes nineyears of blogging, I may I have repeated stories, but never reprinted a post, but I cannot say it better than a 2011 post that was inspired by Knitting and Crochet Week. Pretty much everything stands. done some minor editing <a title="Saints Drew Brees Jersey" href="http://www.neworleanssaintsofficialstore.com/Authentic-Drew-Brees-Jersey" target=_blank>Saints Drew Brees Jersey</a> (ABEAlways Be Editing), and my updates are in bold.</P>
<P></P>
<P>I also a bit of a gadget girl.</P>
<P></P>
<P>There nothing like the marriage of a good pattern, yarn, and accessories. I love it when it all comes together.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Needles, hooks, gauges, bags, counters, boards, pads, pins, tape; I all about a good notion. Like Alton Brown is to cooking, I am to my needlework. The tool must be right.</P>
<P></P>
<P>If it isn just right, I feel a bit like the hypersensitive heroine of The Princess and the Pea see the story at the end of the post), and get irritated and struggle.</P>
<P></P>
<P>On the other hand, a good accessory can make working on a project a joy forever.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Hang High</P>
<P></P>
<P>When possible, I prefer to work with circular needles, and Addi Turbos have been favorites from the beginning. However, they can be a pain to organize and store, and I glad that I got The Circular Solution from Patternworks early in my knitting life.</P>
<P></P>
<P>When I need a needle, I can just grab and go.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Now if my straights and double points looked so good.</P>
<P></P>
<P>[I have since attached one of my beloved needle gauges to it so I can keep things on track.]</P>
<P></P>
<P>Measure It</P>
<P></P>
<P>I was so out of sorts when I misplaced my needle and hook gauge from Nancy Knit Knacks that I went out and brought another one as soon as possible, only t0 find the first one. I got two.</P>
<P></P>
<P>I feel the same way about my Gauge Wizard ruler magnifier. I haven lost it, but I just want another one around, just in case.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Who says taking measurements have to be boring? Not my friend.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Dmo <a title="Drew Brees Jersey White" href="http://www.neworleanssaintsofficialstore.com/Authentic-Drew-Brees-Jersey" target=_blank>Drew Brees Jersey White</a> arigat, Mr. Roboto.</P>
<P></P>
<P>The Secret</P>
<P></P>
<P>You can never be too rich, thin, or have too many stitch markers. My Namaste Buddy is <a title="Authentic Drew Brees Jersey" href="http://www.neworleanssaintsofficialstore.com/Authentic-Drew-Brees-Jersey" target=_blank>Authentic Drew Brees Jersey</a> kinda sweet too.</P>
<P></P>
<P>[I got this one from a sock club selection from The Loopy Ewe. also have a green one that I brought beforehand. there a Better Buddy case, and I want one in pink. are great.]</P>
<P></P>
<P>The same goes for Chibis. I had such a difficult time with keeping tapestry needles before. Well, I still misplace Chibis, but they are so much easier to find <a title="Women's Drew Brees Jersey" href="http://www.neworleanssaintsofficialstore.com/Authentic-Drew-Brees-Jersey" target=_blank>Women's Drew Brees Jersey</a> than needles, and cuteness does count.</P>
<P></P>
<P>Fixer Upper</P>
<P></P>
<P>Another early in my knitting life purchase is my dentist tool from Patternworks. The small hook is wonderful for picking up dropped stitches and the pick has gotten me out of a lot of jams.</P><BR>The topic the article<BR><a title=http://hi.fortuneunboxed.com/blog/34897/america-the-beautiful/ href="http://hi.fortuneunboxed.com/blog/34897/america-the-beautiful/" target=_blank>http://hi.fortuneunboxed.com/blog/34897/america-the-beautiful/</a><BR><a title=http://palbd.com/jayscut1/2013/10/12/batting-289-on-june-8/ href="http://palbd.com/jayscut1/2013/10/12/batting-289-on-june-8/" target=_blank>http://palbd.com/jayscut1/2013/10/12/batting-289-on-june-8/</a><BR><a title=http://myfreesinglesclub.com/forum/topic.php?topic_id=3219 href="http://myfreesinglesclub.com/forum/topic.php?topic_id=3219" target=_blank>http://myfreesinglesclub.com/forum/topic.php?topic_id=3219</a>
