Are there any knitting accessories that you love so much that you often buy more than you need so you are sure never to be without them?

I :heart:love:heart: my Chibi bent tip needles. I now have 2 sets.

I also really :muah: my Kacha-counters (I now have 3 :blush:)

What are your favorite accessories at the moment?

I don't ever seem to have enough hand made stitch markers. :)

Measuring tapes, scissors, stitch markers, tapestry needles, and bags. I usually have a different bag for each project I'm working on, so I want a set of everything I'll need in each one.

My favorite knitting accessories are tapestry needles, stitch markers, stitch counters, and stitch holders.

I can't get enough stitch markers. the little purple and green Clover ones were just too yummy looking to pass up, even tho I've been told they're too soft sometimes. I have beaded ones I bought from foldedbird as well as some that rmturtle gave me. I peruse etsy all the time for them (tho I dont buy due to finances).

I want new Chibis just to get the newer cases (the semi-clear ones)! my case is from 2005 and is plainer.

I love my Electronic Row Counter but I think I need to buy the 3-count one because I alternate between 4-6 WIPs at once.

These are the Chibi - they make weaving in the ends so much easier.

This is the row counter I love.

I really like this row counter--the mini Kacha Kacha from Clover (http://www.yarn-store.com/row-counters.html). It locks, so it never clicks when I throw it in a bag or my kids get a hold of it. Plus, green is my favorite color.

My favorites are:
1-my Clover thread cutter, the plane safe kind because no one steals it like my scissors
2- not really a knitting accessory per se but it a little magnetic box I got as junk mail from vonage. It's about 4x5, not very deep and has a magnetic flap. It is the perfect size to keep my cable needles, weaving needles, stitch markes and small point protectors. It keeps them all in one place and because of the magnetic flap, I can toss it in my bag and the contents stay in it. And best of all, it was free!:woohoo:

I agree! It is fantastic!:cheering:

I also love the plain old Clover stitch markers of all types (open-ring, plastic or rubber closed-ring, and those handy safety-pin type ones)!:heart:

That's my favorite as well...I need to get another one or two. The best thing is that it locks, so you don't advance it accidentally!

I love my Denise interchangable needle set. I would not be without it now that I have it. Also, I got an "knitting accessory kit" from my sister several years ago. It is in a small zippered hard brocade case and has large bobbins, small bobbins, scissors, two plastic and two metal darning needles (large and small), 2 row counters (large and small, the round circle kind), two tip ends (for keeping stitches on needles), a package of stitch markers (the flat rubber kind), a needle threader, 3 sizes of stitch holders and a ruler/needle gauge. I just toss it in whatever knitting bag I am using at the time and away I go! It is 4" wide X 8 1/2" long X 1/2" deep. I believe my sister got it from Mary Maxim for around $10.00 and it's worth every penny of it.
