My Fav knitting accessory

I had a habit of grabbing a project to work on from the very bottom of my knitting bag and then wondered why stitches were dropped. I of course have no idea how to get stitches back on when they have unraveled down to a few rows. I then patiently await for my local yarn store to open so she can fix my problem. After a few times of this happening, I was given the suggestion to buy point protectors to put on the end too keep my stitches on the needles. So now I have a case full and I do use them often especially when I am knitting socks as these stitches always seem to be the hardest ones to get back on the needles.

Secret Pal 10 partner

For this round of secret pal, I requested to have a partner here in the USA. The last round of this swapping got a bit overwhelming for me with the international shipping costs. So now I have a partner whom is only a few states away. The swapping runs from April-June. We send 1 small package a month for those 3 months or 1 large package in June. I prefer to send (& receive) a package a month because there's more excitement involved with it. The partner I was chosen to send too just loves knitting socks which is wonderful for me because so do I. I find it easier to send to someone whom has the same interests as you. So off to shop for the first "gift package".
