If you’re a knitter who doesn’t end up ogling knitting gear on the regular, well then, I don’t even know what to do with you. Me? I’m an incurable online window shopper, and (more often than I care to admit) sometimes I’ll even end up buying things. I try to keep the stash to a minimum, but really, can you have too many stitch markers?

No, my friends. No, you cannot.

On a recent lazy Sunday, I found myself going on an Etsy favoriting spree again and realized that it would be more helpful to all these small shop owners if I shared the things that have caught my eye. I’m planning to make this a regular installment, so if you see something perfect for this feature, please send a link my way!

And one more thing: I’m not getting paid to promote any of this. No affiliate links here, folks, just a stitcher who loves pretty things and wants to share them with others. So let’s get down to it, shall we?

  1. This needle roll by Atelier de Soyun. I bought one several years ago and it has held up wonderfully. It still looks almost brand new, with no tugged seams or weird wear patterns. 

 

 

2. Sock yarn by Little Lotus Lane. I managed to pick up a skein of Jen’s gorgeous yarn in a shop update a couple months ago and have been raving about it ever since (it’s also the yarn I’m using for the Sespe Socks pattern, which will be coming soon). Make sure to follow her on Instagram so you don’t miss the next shop update!

 

 

3. A set of absolutely stunning stitch markers by Tina Druce-Hoffman (check out her Etsy shop for other versions, too!). I haven’t bought these (yet), but that’s only because I just saw them about 20 minutes before writing this post. Give me a little time and I’m sure one of these sets will find their way into my notions box.

 

 

4. This handmade bowl by Elisabeth Scarpace, which would be perfect for displaying a treasured skein of yarn or a newly-finished pair of socks. I’ve been following Lis’s pottery work for years now, and she has a way with glazes that makes my heart sing. You can find more of her creations in her Etsy shop.

 

 

5. This elegant brass stitch holder by Spindle Cat Studio. Look at the beautiful lines on that thing! It’s so sharp and graceful at the same time. It feels more like jewelry than a utilitarian tool.

 

 

I’d better call it quits now before I end up buying out the whole internet, but I’ll be back soon with more things I’ve been ogling. Until then, I’d love to hear what’s in your current list of favorite knitting things.
