Currently loving #15 (knitting edition)

Just wanna share my current faves that are knitting-related (because who doesn't like knitting, right?:D)

1) OKeeffe's Working Hands
Guys, I think I found my holy grail hand cream. This is just UH-MAY-ZING! It's very moisturizing, but non-greasy. My hands get really dry, not just with knitting but also doing daily stuff like washing dishes, and this has cured my hands from cracking.I also like the fact that I can knit right after putting it on.  Seriously...just try it.
(I got mine from Lee Valley)

2) Clover Knitting Counter
Much easier to use than the circular counter ones, and you can also lock it, which is a must when you have kids in the house who like fiddling with your stuff:P

3) Toe Protectors
I know they're for toes, but I use them on my pointer finger, which gets sore when I knit continuously for a long time. They stretch to any finger size (and you can cut them, too), are washable and stay on without snagging the yarn:) The one I got is just the Life brand from our local Shoppers Drug Mart.

4) Handeze Support Gloves
They help me knit longer:D


5) Knitting podcasts
There are so many of them, but these two are my fave, coz they're just awesome and entertaining.

If you do any crafting, what are your faves? Do share.

  1. I like anything you can paint (but not art) when it comes to crafts. I can't do knitting or the other ones.

  2. Weeell, I don't do any crafting these days. Photos, do they count? I don't think we have that hand creme here, I did found an amazing one though, natural/organic (from brand SANTE), but it still has 2 ingredients at the end of the list that make me raise my eyebrow, after reading they are potentially irritating.

  6. I adore knitting. I could do it for days on end without getting bored. I wish I had the time to do more and also I run out of ideas of what to knit.

  10. I still want to learn to knit! My nan has all these books with little Christmas decorations and there's a book telling you how to knit a Noah's Ark thing and it's just adorable. She said she can't teach me though because I'm left handed haha xxx
