Here is another special edition of Tools Tuesday for holiday gifting! Each week, we will be sharing a kit hand selected by one of our team members. This week, Kerry shares her favorites for the holidays.
Kerry is planning on being good about finishing works in progress in the new year, so she’s hoping to open up a new bottle of Soak. Made in Canada, Soak is an eco-friendly, no-rinse formula perfect for all your laundry needs. With gentle cleansers, and a variety of light fragrances as well as scentless options, Soak is a perfect addition to your laundry routine. A little goes a long way, so the large 12oz bottle will last through plenty of projects, but a smaller 3oz bottle makes a nice travel companion. $16
If you are getting close to blocking holiday projects, now is a good time to stock up on more t-pins. Cocoknits makes some of our favorite notions, and their steel t-pins are no exception. The steel pins won’t rust, and are sturdy enough to hold up to most projects. A handy tin keeps them organized between projects. $8
If you’ve had a question about row counters this fall, you’ve probably heard Kerry sing the praises of row counter rings. Designed to fit on your forefinger or thumb, these rings come with two spring-loaded outer rings to track your stitching. The springs keep your count accurate, even if you set your project down for a few weeks, and the design is comfortable to wear all the time. $27
While shopping for new accessories, add in a brioche stitch bracelet. These leather bracelets come etched with the brioche stitch pattern, so you have a reminder wherever you go. With eye-popping colors, pair the brioche bracelet with a wrist ruler and you’re ready to go. We have them in hot pink, teal, orange, natural and dark natural. $25
Cut down on wrapping waste by tucking all your notions into one of these incredible wool project bags from Brooklyn Haberdashery. They are made of super sturdy wool that stands on its own, with a fun brightly colored zipper and pom-poms. $56
