4KCBWDAY6 A tool to covet

If things continue to go way they are I'll soon be turning into a workaholic. But I'm busily happy or should I say happily busy. I cannot wait to show all the things that I've worked on recently. There are a few pictures to be taken and a couple of projects that are nearing the end. Will take pictures of  the finished goods all at once.

And since I believe in closures, I would love to finish off all the posts for the blog week that I participated in. I feel like the marathon is over, everyone's gone back home and off to sleep while I'm still running. But I absolutely love doing these posts. So here is my post for Day 6

The task for Day6 :

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.

Is it an 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?

My absolute favourite tools for knitting are my Bamboo circs and I love that they are so light and feel soft on the hands. I use these all the time.

And here are more of my favourite knitting/sewing tools :

Tools - cuter the better for me. On the left is my book which I use to jot down ideas or any information, craft related. Ever since I've covered it  with the felt cover (made by me) it makes work feel special.

The patchwork pincushion and the needle book are also made by me and they are some things I use all the time. Again, I feel a sense of pride and happiness everytime I use them.

Next to the needle book are my Chibi tapestry needles which are a boon. The pink scissors are a gift from my husband. The seam ripper - I have the smaller seam ripper but this one with a longer handle makes ripping a breeze.

Will be back soon with the last post of this series.
