Retooling..

I did some cleaning this weekend and it got me thinking about notions and tools that I use. I am always on the lookout for something that can  help me knit more effectively and efficiently. Here are a couple of my current favorites:

  1. Walker bags: I like to use these for my notions. The mesh exterior that I have makes it easy to find my stitch markers and snips and darning needles. I like the ones that are flat on the bottom so that I can keep them on a little side table while I am knitting.

    Love these bags I can always fins what I am looking for and thing tend to stay put because of the zipper

  2. Sirka counter: There are so many different kind of counters on the markets  these days, but I have found when I  knit a sweater this is my preferred tool. It takes a little bit of getting used to, but after the learning curve I can’t imagine knitting a sweater without one. It helps me keep track my project when I am working increases/decreases at the same time (which makes shaping so much easier at least for me).

    My Sirka counter. Need to work neck increases and  raglan increases at the same time. Not a problem with this tool.

Okay.. I have been pretty(really) bad on the non-knitting front so I feel there is no need to disclose my bad/poor behavior.

  1. I too love the Walker Bags I have them and use them for knitting, in the car for chargers. I am a little embarrassed as how many I have good to know I am out alone.

    1. I’m right there with you I have too many:) too. I hadn’t thought of non knitting purposes for these, but I like your suggestion about it housing chargers. I always have so many loose cables in my tote bag and this sure would help. thanks for the tip.
