I am participating in a blog week which I am two days late for, but feel it's better late than never! Today's topic is about keeping yourself organized. There are so many amazing cases for needles. I have quite a few of them too! However, I am lazy. It's a pain to dig them out, unwrap or unzip them, choose your needles and then... OMG - put them back in the case?! Never happens. So, I decided to make my needles into a form of art display for my house. On my end table, I have my needles neatly display in a vase. In front of the vase is a cool acrylic holder for my Knit Picks Interchangables. See how pretty: In addition to the mini DPN's that are in a vase behind them, I have a neat container that hold my other DPN's which I just rubber banded together to keep the sets together. In the background, you can see another organization tool I use, which is pen/pencil and paper to mark off my rows as I do my knitting... I didn't mean for that to be on here, but since it's in the background, I thought I'd mention it. My last "trick" is that I have many cabinets (you can get them at any home goods store) to store my yarn. This is just one example: And that, is my contribution for today's Blog Week post. Enjoy!
