I bought a few pairs of knitting needles in a market that only had the old imperial sizing on them and I needed to check that they were the right size. I snapped my 3mm needles and somehow didn’t have a pair of 4mm needles.
I’ve found the scissors better than my normal ones because apart from the fact my fingers are too fat for traditional scissors, I’ve found that these are easier on my hands.
This week, I got a few more goodies from Crochet Creations. I had the above needle gauge off them which also can be used as a ruler and a ‘wraps per inch’ indicator. In case you don’t know, if you’re not sure what weight your yarn is, you can wrap the yarn around a ruler and count how many times you’ve wrapped it and that will give you an indication of the weight of your yarn. Ravelry have a table here to give you an idea of how it works.
I also got some plastic stitch markers and needle point protectors. I wanted some point protectors because when I put my knitting in my bag, if I give it to RiverSystem, he tends to get stabbed by my needles. And let’s face it, extra stitch markers are always handy! I wasted no time in putting them on my latest project! The protectors come in two sizes, large and small. On the needles above, I have a pair of the small protectors and they stay on really well and protect the points.
I have to be honest, I tend to be a bit snobby about plastic stitch markers because they break really easily but I found the ones I got from Crochet Creations much better. They come in really handy because they’re really cheap so if you need a lot which I do for my shawls, you can use them.
As usual, they’re service was excellent. As they come from abroad, it does take a while to come but for the price, I don’t really mind the wait!
