View Full Version : What's on your basic notion wishlist?

I learn about the neatest things on this list - yarns I've never heard of, bags I've never seen...so I have a notion wishlist and I thought I'd ask what's on yours? Maybe I'll find something else to add to mine?

Knitter's review just reviewed the stitchkeepers (http://knittersreview.com/article_tool.asp?article=/review/product/060601_a.asp)I've been coveting.

I also want some locking stitch markers (http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/072390.html) or maybe just the split ones (http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/071338.html).

Coil needle holders (http://www.knitpicks.com/tools/tools_display.aspx?itemid=80252)are really cute - better than the mini rubber bands I have now.

I originally had this row counter (http://www.knitpicks.com/tools/itemid_80210/tools_display.aspx)on my list, but now I want this one (http://www.knitpicks.com/tools/itemid_80264/tools_display.aspx). Or the green locking one - my kacha-kacha is always getting pushed when I don't want it to.

Anyone else have a list?

I love looking at notions and I have most of what I really need. Here are a couple of things I don't really "need", but I'd love to get them someday anyway.

Those stitch keepers are pretty cool...(from Knitter's Review)

I want

small tape measure
more stitch markers
coil needle holders

I would stay away from the split stitch markers unless you have some others, too. The pointy part tends to poke you when you hold the needles and it sometimes catches in the yarn. :shock: I just use the round ones in various sizes now.

I was thinking of using the split or locking st markers in place rather than on the needles, but that's definitely a good point. Guess I should just consider the locking kind as the splits might catch.

I keep breaking my plastic ring st markers (the thin blue & red ones), so I guess I need to add soft unbreakable ones to my list!

Seems like I have most of the basics, but I would like....

needle id tags (http://www.patternworks.com/PWShopping/partsview.asp?action=lookup&partno=300256&subject=U35&catpos=)
knit klips (http://www.patternworks.com/PWShopping/partsview.asp?action=lookup&partno=300295&subject=U35&catpos=7)

This Norwegian Knitting Thimble (http://www.spinblessing.com/inox.htm#624)is interesting. Has anyone ever tried one?

Since I'm new I'm saving up for quite a few things:

A row counter
Stitchmarkers
Circular needles (I have none, I want some!!)
Crochet hooks
Yarn yarn yarn yarn
A sewing machine!!!

Every thing I've bought has been from Ebay (I got like 150 pairs of used needles for $20!) And walmart.

That's quite a score on the needles Nimmie! I got a lot of used notions like that from garage and estate sales. Not sure if that's an option where you live.

I want some of those idiot tags, too. Oh, wait a minute, I guess they're not for people, huh! :rofling:

:roflhard: there's like 1000 of them in a bag, Ingy. I'm sure you'd have a few extra you can use on some lucky people. :roflhard:

You know, just as an early warning device. :thinking:
