Tools…..

Breathtaking!

Breathtaking!

…Some just take your breath away!

A gift from some friends!

A gift from some friends!

I was recently gifted with the most amazing circular needles.  They were made by Michael and Sheila Ernst.

Hand made of blue Dichromatic Glass they are the most beautiful tools I have ever seen and I am already planning the project that they will knit first!

Also new to my tool chest – crochet bullion hooks found for me by Dionne at The Stitcher’s Muse.  Made of stainless steel with beautiful, easy to hold handles, they are perfect for carrying multiple beads for placing as I knit!

I have two sizes, .7mm and 1.0mm.  The smaller has the bone handle and the larger the ebony handle.

Perfect little tools!

What are your favorite tools?!

Happy Knitting

    Wow! The circular needle is beautiful and the crochet hook for beading looks convenient and functional – though I have never worked with beads.
    With my limited experience …I love Skacel (addi Turbo) circular needles!
