Anyone else have a tangle of circular knitting needles that looks something like, oh, say, THIS?

Good times. Or, a tangled nonsense of zero fun. Your choice.

I did a bit of research, asking fellow knitting nerds how they store their supplies. The results varied in methods, with “in a giant mess” being the loudest, most popular vote. I was already winning that race, and frankly it wasn’t working for me.

Looking around my office, I had an old three ring binder full of recipes. (Remember the quaint days of writing recipes and storing them? Awwww. Once again I say: thank God for you, Internet.)

Mayhem managed. Nothing to see here. Carry on, friends.

  1. I always say I can do most crafts but not knit lol. My great aunt tried to teach me once and I spent more time undoing that making progress lol.

  2. Brava! That is another method I keep contemplating but forgot about when you asked.

  3. Nice! You have a lot more circular needles than I do, that mess would have made me crazy too. I got a set of interchangeable ones quite a while ago, so that keeps me pretty organized.

  4. You are one smart cookie – way to go!! And be ‘green’ about it too. Very very nice.
