A Few Favorite Things

Thank you all so much for your thoughtful responses to my cast-on question. Thanks to you, I'm using a cable cast-on to do the longer version of Pont Neuf, December's IGK Pattern of the month. It seems a good choice for a large number of stitches.

But the shorter cowl is nice too don't you think.

Irish Girlie's list of Cyber-Monday deals got me thinking about my own favorite things for knitters:

I'm a sucker for cute project bags and A Needle Runs Through It always has fun fabrics.

Did you see "Big Sky," new yarn from A Verb for Keeping Warm? It looks so lovely and lofty:

This row-counter stitch marker is genius! I have two and when I pick up projects, I immediately know which row to start back up on.

You can get them from the Knitifacts Etsy Shop

And a new favorite is coming soon to the Irish Girlie Designs collection.


 A seriously swoon worthy design I got a sneak peak at during a photo session today.

Keep a lookout for its release as well as some upcoming specials because it is BLOGAVERSARY Time!

I'd love to hear about any of your favorite knitterly things.

I have never seen a chain row does it work?

It is a pretty counter

And you obviously live or have lived in the Bay Area :)

I've not been over to Verb for new yarns lately (probably because my stash is overflowing)....someday, or, perhaps, at Stitches West I'll dig my little hands into some :)

Thanks for your comments everyone!

Theresa, I use it by starting with my needle at the top (away from the flower) and then each row moving the needle into the next "link." So if my needle is in chain link 3, I am on row three of a repeat pattern.

And Renee Anne - Yup! Bay Area native. :-D
