• How This Works

      Short Version

        1) Every Sunday a new crochet Prompt or Challenge will be posted. In addition, a Mission will be posted on the first day of each month, and possibly within any given month.
        2) Copy the Prompt/Challenge/Mission to your own blog with your response then come back here and leave your link in the comments of the appropriate topic so everyone will know where to find it.
        3) If you don't have a blog, why not start one? Or you can just post your response here.
        4) You don't have to participate in every post. Do the ones you want. Backtrack if you wish. 5) If you have any comments about this site and/or suggestions for a prompt/challenge, click on the "Share Your Ideas" tab and use the form to send it.

        For the long-winded version, click the About button.

Prompt: Tools of the Trade

Hooks, yarn needles, and stitch markers are all common tools of the trade, but are there any other things you use with your crochet that might not be so common?

Be sure to link back to this thread with a link to your response so others can find you easily!

  4. Eeek…not really ! I’m kind a simple in what I do 🙂 EEEK…now in spinning I use some weird stuff but in crochet it’s pretty much me and a hook.

  5. • I use a old metal pencil box to hold all my hooks.
    • I also have square clear plastic thin mint containers and empty coffee cans to store balls of yarn.
    • Paper clips and hoop earrings can be good stitch markers.
    • Folded plastic straws work good to wind yarn balls around (if you roll yours by hand.)
