Sock Monkey Tape Measure
You can never go wrong with patterns. Plus, most are under $6.00, so they won’t break the bank, and most now require no shipping! Just download right to your computer, instant gratification. Two of my favorite pattern designers are:
Fuzzy Mitten, www.fuzzymitten.com
Danger Crafts: www.dangercrafts.com
I love The Sexy Knitter! This cute set of five sequined stitch holders come in the Gryffindor House colors, and packaged in the cutest container. Perfect little something! Gryffindor Stitch Markers, The Sexy Knitter, thesexyknitter.etsy.com, $7.50. Also, be sure to check out her Golden Snitch stitch markers and the Knitter’s Tin. I use a Knitter’s Tin myself!
Sometimes, a knitter just needs a libation. After a frustrating session of ripping out our hard work, what better way to take said libations than with these Frogged/Ripped shot glasses? For the knitter who doesn't drink, these are a super cute way to store smaller notions. Frogged/Ripped Shots, Ravelry, ravelry.com/stores, $3.50
