Best part about accessories is searching for the next new thing to add to the collection, some helpful item that inventors decide will make the stitches more even (like square needles), or measure your gauge more accurately, or mark your pattern progress (highlight tape.)
Yes, a good cuppa is almost as essential as the ruler and scissors.
You may be asking, "But what about the needles?" Oh, they are everywhere, in project bags, attached to UFO's, in a needle case (the prize Brittany set), and in a drawer. You really don't wanna know how many.
Though I do have the size 8 Boye needles I used for the first cable sweater, red wool, I knit when I was still in high school.
Here are some more accessories, each picture caption will tell you what's what.
|This is the whole party --|
the winder, the swift and a nice, neat ball of yarn.
|The fishing box from Cabela's that holds things like stitch markers and yarn needles. |
The box opens
from the other side, too, so I have 'stuff' there.
|Hoping you can see the twisty-twirly effect from the RicRac stitch|
The yarn is Rowan wool. Needles are US 8 (5.00 mm)
