KCBW Day 6 - A tool to covet

There are many tools I could not do without when crafting, yarn related crafts in particular come with plenty of their own paraphernalia so for today I thought I would keep it simple* and show you what goes around with me wherever and whenever I take my Knitting or Crochet.

It's all carried in a 3 pocket pencil case and is used every time I'm creating. The only thing that doesn't fit in is my little notebook.

Easy to grab stitch markers and cable needle key
Pencils and extra leads for when I'm sketching
Cable Needle
Crochet Hook (not for dropped stitches you understand as I never do that)
Scissors - never used on paper and they're beautifully sharp and good at snipping
DPN Stitch Saver - teeny jumper
Plenty of different sized yarn needles
Cable Extenders
Row Counter
Retractable tape measure

Some more crochet hooks
DPN Stitch Savers - the other sizes in the set
Loads of stitch markers
Darning needles
Cable Needles
Needle Gauge
Stitch Holders

There are only a couple of things missing from the case at the moment; a set of 3.75mm DPN's, not sure why I keep them here, must have been needed at some point and a couple of circular needle cables and their stoppers.

Is there anything I've missed that you use all the time? Or am I missing out by not having an amazing multi-tool?

*especially after yesterdays efforts - safe to say I will not be making a career of animation!!!
