Now I do not have to wonder if its really lace yarn and not fingering. I know your suppose to swatch, but I would like to do it with the right kind of yarn. Worth the money in my book. Ive heard of wrapping yarn around pencils etc. but I really dont want to trust that. I think its going to pay for itself in the long run.
I have been using a pottery yarn bowl for my knitting. I have decide to use a portable knitting bag for socks alone. It is made really nice, I love the fact that the top sort of goes in so yarn does not fall out, or other items easily. Also, the outside pocket is large enough to hold a tape measure, stitch markers etc. I love the fact, if I want to knit in another room that I can just grab this and go with no problems.
