Brenda's Laying Tools

Brenda wrote a little bit about the two types of laying tools she uses, which I thought folks would find interesting.  I use a trolley needle myself, except I wear it on my left thumb.  But I prefer shorter laying tools than the BLT.  A tekobari is more my style.  To each his/her own!  Actually, I think various types of laying tools work better or worse on certain types of threads and also in certain weathers.  What do you think?  Do you have favorites you always use?

  1. I use a trolley needle and my BLT the most. But I do also occasionally use a wood or glass one. It depends on what I am working on and how much room I have. Love the O Darn I Forgot to be good! LOL
