Sort of homework

Ok, a wish list. Hmmm, that's a bit of a toughie. I'm pretty well stocked, but lets see what I can come up with.

I've never used the new needles that are made of plastic from casein, and I'd like to try them. I'm pretty sure they don't come in US 1's, which is what I knit socks on, but since I signed up for a bag kit this time around, I'd be happy with whatever size is needed for a bag.

I'm a total stitch marker and row counter nut. I need a LOT of help keeping track of where I am in a pattern, and find I like using stitch markers to mark the beginning of pattern repeats.

I definitely could use some sort of small bags to hold stitch markers, tapestry needles etc inside of my project bags. Something to keep me organized, and to keep the smaller tools from getting lost in the shuffle.

Chibi bent tip darning needles. Love them!

Hmm, did better than I thought. I might even come up with more during term. Allergies: no food or fiber allergies, just bee stings.


  1. Excellent tidbits! I like the way you came up with things but weren't overly specific with everything... that way you're still surprised. :)

  2. Thanks! I'm trying to give guidelines, but not be to picky or demanding :-) Half the fun of doing a swap is the hunt for things to put in the kit.
