Nifty notions

Since it is the holidays I took the opportunity to check out a couple of local wool shops and I picked up a few nifty items including a couple of useful tools that I had been thinking about buying. A definite impulse buy was the 'Stitchopoly' game which is a needlecraft version of Monopoly (not knitting unfortunately but appealing anyway). I also picked up a knitting calculator which makes working out stitches to cast on based on stitches in a tension square a breeze, very handy and low tech. Both of those were at the wool shop in Toronto.
                                                                             Later in the hols I finally found where Hand to hand has relocated and found a set of marking pins which I had seen online (plus some of that furry yarn which I thought would make a good trim with a black wool).
