What's in my notions bag?

I recently switched over to using a MayBeaCrafted bag as my notions bag. I thought it'd be fun to share with you everything that's inside!
 I can really cram a lot of stuff into this bag:
I've got a notebook, which I use for taking notes. Even when I'm making simple socks, I like to jot some notes about stitch count and length to starting heel and stuff. These days it takes me a long time to finish personal knitting and crochet projects, so the notebook is crucial. This one above I got at the Madison Knit-In last month. It has little post-it notes and page flags inside too!

I have a random variety of double-pointed needles (usually there's a bunch of crochet hooks in there too, but I cleaned them out recently). I also have a stitch holder. Not really sure why....I think I was using it for a sweater or something.

There's a pair of scissors, some pens and a pencil, a tape measure and a couple of those ruler/needle gauge things. Again, not really sure how I ended up with two needle gauge things, but I know I'll lose one eventually so I've left both of them in there.

Finally, I have a small hard-shelled notions case from FreshStitches:
That's where all the tiny stuff goes. What's inside:

  • Stitch markers
  • Nail clippers (can be used to cut yarn if your scissors get taken away while flying and/or get lost)
  • Some bobby pins (you can use them for Japanese short rows...or your hair)
  • A magnet pattern thing
  • Stylus
  • Cute little octopus snips from Hiya Hiya
  • Tapestry needles
  • The key thingy for the Knit Picks interchangeable needles 
  • Point protectors, which I never, ever use
That's it! I'm so glad I've started using a little bit of a larger notions bag. I like knowing that everything is in one location.

What's in your notions bag? Anything I should add?
