Fun & Functional Tools for Easier Yarn Crafting

Every pastime has a host of accessories to enhance it, and yarn crafting is no exception.  Everyone knows you need yarn, and you need needles and/or crochet hooks – but did you know that there are literally thousands of fun, pretty, clever and cute accessories that can make your experience even better?  It’s true – and I am going to share just a few favorites from Laurel Hill.

Clover Chibi with Darning Needles – for fixing, seaming or weaving in – not only are these the perfect solution, but the cute little case and lid make this a nice accompaniment to your collection of crafty goodies.

Knitter’s Pride or Lacis Ball Winders – tired of knotted up clumps of yarn that are impossible to detangle?  A ball winder is the answer – a simple, fabulous device that does the job better than this:

Clover Katcha Katcha Counters – whether in the mini or regular version, this tool is essential to any yarn crafting that involves a pattern that requires counting.  No more worries about keeping count in your head and losing that train of thought as soon as someone starts a conversation. No more wondering where you left off.  Wouldn’t this make your life so much easier?

You have to admit that accessorizing makes yarn crafting even more fun, and there’s a myriad of options to explore at Laurel Hill.  With everything online, you can take your time to browse and shop without any pressure.

Personally, I love the darning needle sets and the colorful, clever locking stitch markers from Clover – these accessories add a contemporary flair to an ancient art.

Please tell us more about your favorite yarn crafting tools and accessories.  We would love to hear from you!

All the best from the Laurel Hill family!
