We love to see people knitting in public. There’s no better way to extend your patience while waiting than to pick up your needles and work on your knitting project. However, working on your project on the go can present some difficulties, especially if you are unprepared. So, we’ve put together a list of essentials for knitting on the go:
KnitPro Chart Keeper - These are great not just for lace charts, but for keeping your place in any knitting pattern. This way you can move your magnets to keep track of your row and never lose a page in your pattern again!
KnitPro Point protectors - There’s nothing worse than pulling your project out of the bag and realizing that some of the stitches have slipped off the needle. Avoid the frustration of having to pick up all your stitches by putting these point protectors on the tips of your needles before you put them in your bag.
Crochet Hooks - Crochet hooks are very handy tools for knitters. They are useful for picking up dropped stitches, so it’s always good to have one in your bag for emergencies.
Row Counters - Row counters are extremely helpful when you have long sections of stockinette or garter stitch. It’s easy to lose count, so make sure you don’t by clicking this cute little row counter at the end of each row or round.
DPN Tubes - If you like to knit socks or gloves on double pointed needles than these DPN tubes are a must have! These will protect your knitting and the needles while they rest in your bag. The knitting just hangs out the side of the tube while your needles are encased in the tube.
Stitch markers - We have them all: the ring stitch marker, split ring stitch marker, locking stitch marker and Zooni beaded stitch markers! Choose your favorite style to keep on hand - these are a knitting bag necessity!
Finally, be sure to keep your knitting safe (and your notions all in one place) with a project bag! You can even make your own if you like. Here are a few of our pattern suggestions to try:
