Christianne, another fellow NJ Knitter is having a contest on Favorite Knitting Tools...
go on over and leave a comment with your favorite knitting tool, and tell her you found her through me. I believe the deadline is Friday.
This is what I wrote:
I have two favorite knitting tools.
1. My project bags. Some I bought, some I made. I match the color or the bag to the project. That way I can grab it and go, knowing what is inside.
2. In W-M, in the T@mpax section I found these little skinny mini zip bags that are just large enough to hold a few sock knitting tools. I remove the huge charm that they come and put my stitch markers there, so they are not only decorative, but handy too.
Just found your blog, it's very enjoyable. I too live in NW NJ...
