You CAN live without these things...but should you have to? We don’t think so.
This handy-dandy kit can make crochet time run a little more smoothly by providing you with cute (and safe) scissors, a stitch counter, and a measuring tape to replace the last one you lost--come on, you know I’m not wrong. Of course, if you are still living with the first measuring tape you ever bought, then I apologize for judging you.
