Following on from the talented Inverleith’s and the fabulous lululoves posts about their crochet essentials
I wondered if you would like to see mine?
Mostly I have baskets of yarny stuff allover the house…
The three main areas are:
1. next to the sofa, for a little ‘tv’ hooking
2. next to the bed, for a little ‘clear my head before sleep’ crochet
3. of course there is ‘the stash’ in my sewing room for ‘everything else’ crochet
If travelling or visiting or just on the move I have an essential kit…I bet you all do too?
In no particular order…
I will start with hooks and the storage of:
on the go…
lovely pockets inside…
then what about the ‘bits and pieces’….
….these go everywhere with me….
pompom makers we all have,
I also like a bit of antibac..it cools my hands when they get too hot to hook,
my mum gets me this from the states…cilantro peach mmmmm
This is my needle pot, I made it from a vitamin tube, covered in tape.
All big needles for weaving in the pesky ends!
one of these has a secret purpose…
you can crochet in the dark with it!!!!
….I use it on night flights when everyone else is asleep in the dark…
the little tower of pots contain, stitch markers and eyes for amigurumi creatures….a few buttons….
then the usuals….
just add a basket, yarn and you are good to go…..
what are your essentials…?
