These are some of the tools I use most often when I crochet. The calculator is a must when trying to figure out stitch and row counts for a garment. The little blue tubes are cushions for your crochet hook. They come in different sizes and I picked these up at Michael’s. I have a box of stitch markers and a box of claw barrettes. I use the claw barrettes to hold my pieces together before sewing. Another box holds the hooks I use most often. I’ve found that a row counter can be quite handy when making tops or sweaters. The little metal ruler on the bottom left is a stitch gauge. You can slide the metal pointer to the 4″ mark and measure the stitches that fall into that range–very nifty. And of course, I use my little stork scissors and a pen and paper for notes. You’ll notice the pretty tins that hold some of my supplies. These came from Brighton, the jewelry people. Every time I buy a piece of Brighton, I save the tins. In the photo below, you’ll see all my supplies in a small carry-all. This carry-all has many compartments and helps me to keep my chair-side table from looking too cluttered.
