Cool New Tools

Bryson Distributing recently added some new tools, and I had the (amazingly) good sense to order some.  The Gauge-O-Knit is a ruler that automatically indicates your gauge - no figuring it out, no multiplying, nada,  For those of us who have experienced mathphobia, this is a godsend.

But wait!  That's not all!  There is also the Calc-O-Knit, for when you want to use yarn of a different gauge than the pattern calls for, or use a different needle size.  This gadget tells you exactly what you need to cast on, based on your gauge (determined with the above gadget).  You can change a pattern you like to fit you, easily and without errors.

Purls of wisdom: The value of an idea lies in putting it to use.
