Photo-a-Day - November 2012 - Day 7: Tools

Photo-a-Day - November 2012 - Day 7: Tools
I do have all the standard tools of hammers, drill, jigsaw, screwdrivers, etc., but these are the tools I use almost everyday.

I did crochet when I was young, moved to needlepoint, and came back to crochet about 2.5 years ago.  When I did, I had nothing; no hooks, no yarn.  That's changed.

My guest room is stacked high with yarn bins.  I have several sets of standard hooks, plus some Tunisian (long) hooks and a set of interchangeable cable hooks.  Scissors, tape measures, row markers, large pins, a calculator, and my MagEyes are indispensable.  The other two things which have proved really helpful are a therapeutic glove for my right hand which allows me to stitch without pain, and cardboard templates in 6", 7", 8", 9", 10" and 12" for making squares for charity.
