We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.-Wilma Randolph
Is it just me, or has there been a relative shortage of memes around knitting blogland? Jenn
over at Knit'n'Lit threw up a question an embarassingly long time ago:
What's In Your Notions Bag?
Has a bit of a game show ring about it, doesn't it? Anyway, some time ago I took a photo of all the stuff I usually keep in there and kept forgetting to post. So here goes. My notions bag:1. The bag:
The darling Flitgirl
gave this to me many years ago as a cosmetics bag. What could provide better comesis that knitting notions?2. The scissors:
I stole these from my mom shortly after I started knitting. (I'm pretty sure they came free with a knife set she ordered.) It's all about the cover.3. The stitchmarkers:
My only fancy stitchmarkers, courtesy of the lovely ladies at the Ocean State Knitting and Crochet Guild.4. The tape measure:
A dime a dozen. I buy them whenever they go on sale at Joann's. The better to lose them later . . .5. The yarn scraps:
From whatever I was working on prior. They come in handy as extra stitch holders, stitch markers, or anything, really.6. The nail file:
Nothing ruins a good afternoon of knitting like a snagged nail.7. The darning needles:
See "tape measure" above - I lose these like there's no tomorrow. Somehow I threw one across the room at knitting group the other day. By accident. Seriously - you had to see it disappear to believe it.
Go make this a meme on your blog (you know, to perhaps cover up for all that knitting that you HAVEN'T been doing), do give due credit to Jenn
