What I find funny is that I can tell you with no hesitation that my favourite crochet thread is DMC Cebelia, favourite yarn to crochet is Patons Grace, and my favourite hooks are my antique Prims {I wish I did ebay to get more of 'em}; but I can sit here for 10 minutes to try and think up the answer to this one, and still not be definitive!

I don't really like plastic needles, but I love my Denise's set. I prefer metal needles for most projects, but the bamboo dpns I bought were like silk in my hands. I haven't tried Addi's yet {I want to though!}, and I know that the stiff cord and bent joint on Boye circs drive me up a wall {go figger that Boye is the only brand of crochet hook that I will buy new, and I want to get a NM set!}.

I haven't yet found a yarn that makes me want to toss the rest of my stash, but have found many that I don't like for various reasons {too scratchy on the hands, too difficult too work with}. About half of my knitting is done with plain ol' Handicrafter cotton or with RH SS or Comfort, but that's because it's what I call "utility knitting", dishcloths, scarves, mitts, yada yada yada.
May all your projects be frog-less, and all your patterns error-free!
