I think the whole world knows that I knit socks in tandem...decided to buy a second set of same size dpns one day to knit them at the same time; I later found out that several people were doing that!
I also started putting my balls of yarn in ziplock bags & cutting hole in corner for yarn; later found out lots of knitters were doing that, too...lol!
I suppose we are a group that have the same train of thoughts?!
Supper is about to burn...I'll have to think of others!
Great thread, Silver
EDIT...remembered another; when blocking something; I run dental floss (was going to use fishing line, but didn't have any) thru the side seams with a tapesty needle and then tack down the ends of the floss bc I don't have those blocking wires, I improvised with 'found objects'...dental floss!
Yet another; right after I started knitting last year I started putting everything written/typed/printed/bought in page protectors & 3 ring binder that I've also found out we all do...GREAT MINDS....
My sweet husband bought the zipper case that goes in 3 ring binders (remember from school...for our pencils, pens, etc
) for me to put accessories in to keep at hand. Of course my collection of 'accessories' has since grown...but, this zippered '3 ring binder container' (or whatever it's called..
) will go with me tomorrow when we go to Charleston with my out of town necessities in it :D ..I have a very sweet & ingenious husband
OMGosh, thought of another, everytime I submit this post...I think of another...lol! I put rubber bands or twist ties (I've also used a bit of silly putty with plastic on it on the end of the needles...lol) at the end of my needles to keep the yarn on bc I lost all of my point protectors
I write everything down; then type it into my palm software on computer and then hotsync it to my pda; I've been doing this since I started knitting...LOL, then I found out not too terribly long ago that there is pda software for this...but I think my method works GREAT :D
