The Crochet Hook Problem I crochet significantly more than I knit. So you might wonder why I have about 5 times more knitting needles than crochet hooks. It’s because of what’s available in stores. You see, for years (or decades really) knitting needles have come with different styles of tips. Some have sharp tips to help when you need to manipulate loops in complicated lace patterns. Others have blunted tips. …

Many of the products I post about tend to be specifically for knitters and crocheters. But I really think the Eucalan No Rinse Delicate Wash is equally useful whether you’re a die hard stitcher or don’t know the difference between a knitting needle and a crochet hook. Eucalan Wash is a product for items that you need to hand wash. For knitters and crocheters this often means handmade socks and …

One of the most enjoyable conversations I’ve had on a plane flight was with Sarah Wilson, aka The Sexy Knitter. She and I got along great, and we’ve kept in touch online since then. So I was excited when I opened up my Cooperative Press / Bijou Basin Ranch Goody Bag from Rhinebeck to find one of Sarah’s Origami Folded Paper Star Stitch Markers. It’s handmade from folded paper. I’ve …

Everyone I know seems to be making up their holiday wish lists now, so I thought I’d do a quick post about something neat I spotted at Stitches East last Sunday. It’s called a Stitch Light. It’s a light that hangs from a lanyard around your neck as you stitch. The LED light is fully adjustable: you can move it up, down, around and vary the brightness. The idea is …

Product: Della-Q Eden Project Bag (small) List Price: $10 When I was in Texas I picked up the small Della-Q Eden Project Bag. It’s a decent size at approximately 10 by 11 inches.
