Sometimes we know there are handy knitting tools out there that will enhance are knitting and our lives, but for some reason, we get by without them due to cost or lack of space. When I began knitting, I coasted along without these tools and got by. Lately, however, I find I need to remove unecessary frustration and condense my knitting prep and finishing time and make it all more efficient. So here they are and I hope they help you with your knitting time management.
Ever find knots or get knots in your yarn while knitting? A ball winder helps you keep your yarn knot free and condenses your skein into a cake to help you zip along...and there are just sometimes you want to be zippy!

HANKS got you down? Check out using an umbrella swift. Many yarn stores will have one on hand or you can purchase your own if you're hard core ;). You can also hang your hank over the back of a dining chair or get a helper but isn't this soooo much cooler! I don't know about your house, but a hank signals the pets to gather 'round for great fun!

Do you have a pattern or chart that is a little difficult and requires more concentration than usual? I find this gadget (a great tool for any needleart) I like this chart holder that folds up and fits in your purse or tote. I use mine all the time for knitting on the run.

KnitPicks has all of these products in stock. Shop around, find out what your local yarn stores have available, compare cost and you will be able to stay within the knitty budget that we all set out to keep come Jan 1...but seldom do!
