It was a toss-up between this:
and this: But in the end, it is my crochet hook that wins the award for favorite knitting accessory. Yes, I brought both of them with me when I went to see my niece. Yes, I used both of them while visiting said niece but the crochet hook got the most usage by far. Not only can it hold stitches, but it is a prime tool for fixing twisted stitches, turning purls into knits, knits into purls, and for picking up stitches when necessary. I love my crochet hook. This is actually the one I use the most. I love its color and I love its many uses!
