I'm already mixing up the days for the Knit/Crochet Blog-a-long because some days move me more than others. Today I'm using the Wild Card Day.
All Tooled Up - Do you have a particular knitting/crochet tool or piece of equipment that you love to use? Maybe it is an old bent pair of needles that used to belong to someone special, or a gorgeous rosewood hand-turned crochet hook that you just love the feel of? Write about what you love it.
I almost passed on this one too, but then I remembered an important tool that I had to use for my sock knitting. I've been working on a lot of baby socks lately, but I don't always have a needle with me to kitchener the toe closed. Which means I can't start another sock because I don't have enough needles to keep them both going. This happened twice to me during ballet. I started thinking there has to be SOMETHING that I can pass these live stitches onto until I have a needle to close up the toe. I tried a straw, but it didn't work. I was going to ask for a paper clip but nobody was in the office in the studio to ask. Just as I was beginning to see if I could get away with pilfering a paper clip, I looked down and saw the perfect tool.
A bobby pin!!! This is the perfect solution for my problem and I was ticked I didn't think of it sooner!
So there you have it, my favorite tool for the day.
