My idea is, some people are like my dad, and invest in lots of tools, and of high quality.

I'm sort of like that at times, and what I have to show for it is a bunch of weird things like a gismo for holding charts on your knee, and whatnot.

And some folks like being in a show from the '30's, and using safety pins and rubber bands and eschewing anything store-bought for the tool purpose.

Could a poll be designed to find out how many folks line up on this subject?

Thanks!

Anna

Hi Eldergirl, Last Monday I was with my knitting group not listening to the chatter when I heard ask Donna ,she has all the gizmos. I had to ask what they were talking about because I'm good at tuning out people when I want to. It turned out it was about a sock loom . She was right I did have one it was given to me as a gift. I have never used it because I like knitting them and it seem like a lot of work that way. Donna

To me, the right knitting tools are just as important as the yarn or the pattern! I posted a little ode to one of mine on my blog just last week: At Hand.
