Today's challenge is to talk about our knitting tools. I may have a problem.
I can't help myself.
It started with these at a knitting show many many years ago:
and then my son and I were at knit city and, well, these caught my attention:
Oh sure, I had lots of utilitarian markers:
and then? Well then I discovered french pins for shawl work:
These next ones were part of a gift set I shared with my sister and daughter because they live far away and I want us to think of having tea together - I am sentimental that way:
Then I got practical - these are great for shawl work and lace sweaters:
These I got in a swag bag at Knitcity:
Then because I loved the gold rings so much my friend (read enabler) told me I could get them cheap at Michaels:
I saw these in a Knitpick catalogue and HAD to have them because sometimes I put a marker on my knitting and then forget what it is there for:
At Fibres West - there was this great deal. All these for $1.25:
And, last, but not least, my ten year old honourary grand-daughter and I shared this package of lucky charms we found at Fibres West.
She went home with seventeen stitch markers to start her collection. She gets that from me!
And besides you can never have enough stitch markers!
Am I right?
All of the designer removable stitch markers are from Caliope's Fibres.
