N is for Notions

N is for notions - all those little extra things that are needed for knitting (or crocheting).  Here is what I feel are my essential knitting notions:

This includes a six inch wood ruler that doubles as a row marker, a retractable tape measure, stitch markers (both closed and ones that open - all stored in an ald Altoids type tin), scissors (mine happen to be bandage scissors that my husband bought when he was in nursing school many, many years ago), darning needles (happily in their needle nest - a little magnetic case), a pen and a pencil, and last lip balm (granted I may have a problem with lip balm - I have them everywhere!! I have at least five on the go at any given time - one my my computer, one on my bedside table, one in my purse, one on my desk at work, and one in my car).

What are your most needed notions??

  1. I don't write my own patterns, so I don't need the ruler but I do transfer each row of a pattern onto a note card so I also have pens, note cards, cable stitch holders and point protectors amongst my notions . . . and I'm beginning to feel the urge to start a new project thanks to this blog.
