Knitting "Tackle"

I spent the day organizing my knitting "tackle" and have 10 standard tackle kits to put in each of my knitting bags.
The podcast for the idea about using size 10 crochet thread is Knitting Pipeline.  I enjoy it. My previous blog post about my obsession.

My Standard Knitting Tackle
The contents of my standard knitting tackle includes: (seek & find) scissors, knit chek, zipper pouch with coiless safety pins and stitch markers, bread ties, tape measure, sweetener, sticky notes, crochet hooks in two sizes (one large, one small), writing utensil, tapestry needles (blunt and sharp), and crochet thread (size 10 for lifelines in two colors). I also have a notebook for sketches or notes as I knit.

What's in your standard knitting tackle? I'd like to know.

I vlogged about this process on knitrific if you'd like to see what that was like.

wow. you have 10!? I just have the one in a fluorescent green flat divided longish thingey (shut up, it's a technical term). It's very portable and get grabbed and transferred to my different knit projects. I suspect I have fewer things on the needles that you do, though.

This is too funny; great minds think alike! In my last video I showed the stuff in my knitting pouch and asked my viewers to do the same, either on their blog or in my Ravelry group. If you're curious you can find it in the link below, it's located at 25.29 in the video. I'm going to post a link to your video in my Ravelry group (Knitterbugs and Dust Bunnies) so people can come over here and see your knitting pouches. :)

That looks like it was fun.

I need some organizing. I couldn't find one tape measure today despite the fact that I have purchased at least 6 or 7 of them.
