New yarns, books, and magazines we expect. New patterns, new colorways, a new brand of needles or hooks every once in a while: sure. It is much more rare, I think, that I come here to announce a new knitterly gadget like this one. Here is the Fix-a-Stitch, a short, two-ended crochet hook for picking up dropped stitches, a particularly handy tool for correcting mistakes in garter stitch without having to turn your work around again and again.

They come as a set of three sizes to accommodate various weights of yarn. Anne and I had never seen anything like it before, and we’re pleased to add them to the notions collection at the shop. If you’re curious about how such a thing is used, the Fix-a-Stitch website has a few videos to demonstrate. It certainly looks like a tool worth keeping in one’s knitting bag.
