    I really like gauges! I have so many random needles that were given to me that don’t have the measurement on them, so I use my gauge all the time πŸ™‚

      A gauge is such a handy tool. Like you, I have needles from my Grandma that the measurements have rubbed off from. In fact, I also use the gauge from my Grandma! Great suggestions.

It houses a variety of necessary tools including a tape measure, double ended crochet hook, folding scissors, darning needle, stitch markers, needle sizer, a cutter and a counter. It is small enough to fit into your pocket, purse or knitting bag. Invaluable!

    Absolutely love your blog, it has become the highlight of my Mondays. You certainly have a knack for finding the most interesting sites around the web. I also always look forward to the recipes and knitting projects you post. I am rather new to the knitting craft and the very first project I ever tried was your Chunky Blanket pattern and although it didn’t turn out quite as lovely as yours, it was the beginning of my knitting obsession and I have been going at it ever since. Keep them coming!

    My absolute favorite accessory, use every day for every project, is the app Tally Counter by Agile Tortoise. Its easy to use, clean and functional interface , auto saves, and can have multiple counters. I’d love it if they could add features for the needle-worker, and have requested (but, one person isn’t worth the development expense), still, it is still my most used and favorite accessory.

    I use a repurposed cosmetic bag to keep supplies together in my Diesel Sweeties Yarn Star tote bag. Also bought the macaron travel kit, at your suggestion – so cute! The only thing I would add to your list is a needle holder – either a tubular one, a repurposed candy container, or one made of felt – for sewing together finished items, and perhaps a needle threader (although one of those can be made from a slip of paper in a pinch…)
    Great contest – would love to have another project bag!

      Yup, a cosmetic bag would do the trick perfectly! And I do have a handle needle holder…I should add that to the list! It is easily attached by a string to your knit tote (or cosmetic bag), so its easy to track down when needed.

    I think that my favorite tool has got to be the needle size gauge. I have been knitting for so long that I have needles in Canadian, US, English and metric sizes and when a pattern needs say a US 8 (or any other) needle size I use the gauge to convert it to whatever size it is in other . I hope I made this understandable.,,but I’m not sure.

      Oh, Lou

      You absolutely made it understandable. And that really is a great tool! It does get befuddling at times figuring out what size gauge our needles are. I am still using my Grandmother’s 50+-year-old gauge. While not necessarily ‘pretty’ it still does the job…though I am tempted by one of those smaller ones.

    My absolute favourite knitting accessory is my yarn swift. Whether I hand wind or use a ball winder, the swift is what makes it all work so nicely. So much easier than hooking it around my feet, the back of a chair, or making a request of my husband to hold his arms out for an hour while I wind.

    I have a fold up stand that I use to prop up my patterns on the table beside me. I put a magnetic chart holder on it and mark my chart or row with magnets.
    I recently made a portable version of the same using a journal so that I could take it to work. I used two thin metal sheets almost as big as the pages between pages 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 and sealed them in with some orange electrical tape that I had. An 8.5 x 11 sheet fits in there quite nicely. and I use magnets to hold it there and some to mark my spot.

      Hi Kathy,

      Sure! I can so see the benefit of that! At the end of the day, we each have what works for us and you’ve clearly figured yours out! I also keep pencils, though I typically end up marking all over my patterns! But I also typically make a copy of the pattern so that I can do that. I also often enlarge the charts when there are many stitch changes…easier on the eyes.

    The very best gift is a gift certificate to a LYS. My husband has no idea what knitting accessories or yarn I would appreciate, but every year for my birthday, he scopes out a new yarn shop (near a brewery!) and buys me a gift certificate. We spend a day after Christmas (since my birthday is in December, and who has time?) driving to the yarn shop. He brings a book to read while I pick out my yarn. Then we head to the craft brewery for lunch, stopping to get takeout if the brewery doesn’t serve food. We make a whole day of it, and both of us are happy. I’ve found great yarn shops that I wouldn’t have found otherwise.

    Accessories are one of the unexpected delights of being a knitter. The process and all the gorgeous yarn AND goo-gobs of accessories too! Heaven! My favorite is my steel cart on wheels where I store all my essentials and can take to living room, the deck–anywhere. I can put fun magnets on it too. It has three shelves where my needle case, dpn cases, a yarn bowl and bags & bags of small projects are stored. I even put a magnetic ruler on the side to check the length of my socks as I knit along.

      Keeping a cutting tool hung around your neck is brilliant! I am forever looking for scissors. I have little scissors that actually have a hole in the handle that would be perfect to thread a cord through! Thanks for the idea. And a crochet hook does come in handy for weaving those ends in. That needs to be added to my list.

      Perfect! I may need to add them to my list. I am, what my grandmother called, ‘hoodly fudly’ in my knitting. I never take the time to use needle protectors and as such, end up putting my stitches back on my needles more often than not. That’s not to say that I don’t have needle protectors, so there really is no excuse.

    I forgot to mention how much I love the sheepy parts of your package. As a Shepherd, sheep are my “spirit animal”!

      Hi Marnie…what a great ‘spirit animal’! Your last name evokes gentle guiding of a gentle and kind animal. Lovely!

    My favorite knit gadget is my mother…she loves to knit and spends hours every day knitting away! All of her children and grandchildren are the beneficiaries of her loving an hard work. My favorites are the beautiful baby sweaters that have become heirlooms passed on from one generation to another!!
    She would be the person to get the bag!

      Oh Aly, I love that! How blessed you are and how cherished I know those sweaters are! I know you know this, but there is a whole lot of love knit into each of those sweaters.

    Always love to look over knitting gadgets. Stitch markers are my favourite. They prompt memories sometimes and others are very utilitarian, but the sheep are adorable. Those mini scissors are so cute and the perfect travel size.
    Thanks for your newsletters. They are a joy to receive each week.

      Hi Linda,

      In truth, I don’t use stitch markers as much as I should! But when I do, they are typically ones gifted to me, so they do prompt memories.

    I’ve only been knitting for a few years but in looking over this lovely list I realize I need a needle case! My needles are in total disarray! This would make my life so much easier and I don’t know why I haven’t stopped to get one! And everything on this list is adorable and useful. Perfect!
    I also use tiny scissors all the time. I have a pair in each project bag! πŸ™‚

      Hi Sylvia,

      Needle organization is always a challenge and needle case is so helpful. I use a needle case, a jar and a self-improvised system for my circular needles…which I just realized I do need to share with you all. I’ll get on that.

    What a wonderful post. Between it and all the comments I have at least half a dozen new tips to try and gadgets to check out. I like to try and stay organized so I have a zip pouch to hold stitch markers, blunt needles, crochet hook, measuring tape and the like. I love the tote bag. I can never have too many.

    I love my ancient Susan Bates metal Needle sizer – for knitting needles and crochet hooks, with a cut-out for measuring gauge. And there is no such thing as “too many” project bags – not when my pattern AND yarn stash are both SABLE. Thanks for the chance to win.

      Hi PJ, I still use the needle gauge that was my Grandmother’s…from ‘Sears, Roebuck & C0’ and it has the little cutout for measuring gauge as well. It is a handy, basic tool but does the job perfectly.

    And P.S. I love the comment about the crotchet hook to pick up lost stitches – I usually end up completely undoing my work until I get to the row where I’ve lost my stitch because I am not a good enough knitter to know how to fix it any other way … maybe you could do a tutorial on this? Hint hint?
    Thanks again for sharing!

    My favorite of your list is the needle gauge, but I have a question: I have several needle gauges, either plastic or metal, and they seem to disagree! In some cases the needle stops going al the way through the metal gauge when the hole is the correct size, but then DOES go all the way through the plastic gauge. Which is the better gauge, and how does your wooden one work?

      November 17, 2020 at 11:38 am

      Argh Fran, that is quite a problem. I think I would go with the one that seems to accurately fit the majority of your needles. The wooden one works the same way.

      Let me know which one you decide to stick with!

    Dear Lynn,
    I’ve been enjoying your posts and emails for most of the past year, and have really loved the knitted dishcloth patterns in particular. I am mostly a knitter, have very little skill with crochet, and I’ve loved virtually everything I’ve encountered on your site, as well as the affiliate links that have led to some great things! This knitting bag looks wonderful!! Much continued success to you and I hope you and your family have a wonderful and happy holiday. My mom suffered dementia, so I can easily imagine how difficult your mom and dad’s situation is – God Bless you all.
    Cheers,
    Denyse

      And thanks for your kind words about my little blog! I love this wee job of mine, but it is all the more enjoyable with readers like you on the other end of my posts and ramblings. Thanks for being a part of the family.

    While reading other comments, I would like to have ‘graduated’ to use a cable needle, which happens to be in my ‘to do’ hand warmer project- I LOVE the tiny lamb stitch markers, but I dont have anything THAT CUTE !!!! Thank you for offering the tote bag- I would LOVE to win this and give it to my sweet friend -a true Southern Friend- who is just starting to knit ! My ‘go to’ tool probably is the knitting needle gauge. I appreciate your blog & am now knitting hats with edging in the faux fur- similiar to the inspiring blanket that you have on your site. Thank you, Lynn- God bless your parents !

    Believe it or not, my favorite knitting tool is the pencil cup on my end table. It sits right next to me while I knit, and holds at least four sizes of crochet hook (for picking up dropped stitches), pens, pencils and a highlighter for marking patterns, cable needles that hang on the side, and the cuticle clippers that double as my yarn snips. My needle gauge stands up next to it. Although it isn’t actually a ‘knitting tool,’ I couldn’t do without it!

      I am flat out borrowing that idea from you! On any given day, you will find scissors, cable hooks, a tape measure and pens scattered over my coffee table. A pencil cup or similar container makes so much more sense! Thank you!

    I have a bunch of cute project bags, I like to get them from new LYS when I travel or if I just see a cute one from my favorite LYS. But I’m also a sucker for cute stitch markers. You always need them and they make me smile as I finish a round or use to mark the right side of a flat project.

    My absolute favorite knitting tool is the Silvalume Handi Tool. It has a small crochet hook on one end and a pointed tip on the other. It is extremely helpful when dropping stitches or correcting mistakes. Thank heaven it is quite inexpensive. I bought one and lost it. I bought a replacement and lost it. I bought a third one and then found the other two! Now I have one in my accessory bag, my travel project bag (for riding in the car), and one in my current sweater project bag. I have a feeling that there will be more of these little tools in my future!

      Hi Gail, I had never heard of the Silvalume Handi Tool before your comments, but adding it to my stocking stuffer wishlist! Just read the suggestions and can see what it is truly ‘handi’! I have an unnecessarily large number of cable hooks for the same reason you now have 3 handi tools!

      Thanks for the great suggestion and you are entered into the drawing!
