Organizing Circular Knitting Needles

As part of my New Year's resolutions, I wanted to organize my craft supplies. One of the problems was my circular knitting needles. Something had to be done about this mess, so I consulted my favorite knitters in the Stitch n Bitch book. Jenanne Hassler's circular knitting needle holder to the rescue!


It doesn't exactly look neat and tidy, but it's a much easier way to store and find needles I need. I took me organizing all of these to realize my needle collection is seriously lacking in the smaller needles!




Before
I shamefully present to you my circular knitting needles and other random knitting supplies, before the needle case.


What I liked about this project: I could use scrap fabric and it didn't take long to complete.

What I didn't like about this project: Iron-on transfers are crazy expensive!

What I listened to while I made this project: Weezer's Blue Album

  1. would hand embroidering the sizes be quicker than the iron-on transfers? good job ashley! *two pats on the back*

  2. I would print the numbers on fabric on my printer ( iron plain cotton onto freezer paper, cut to A4 size and put into printer tray, format the numbers on label template in Word or other similar word processor, when printed remove freezer paper and cut up labels with pinking shears).
    Use fusible web to attach to the front of the pockets/tubes.
    I am going to modify it for my interchangeables and straights and make it a drape over for my couch arm.
