Order

For years I have kept all my double point knitting needles and circular needles in their original packaging inside a plastic box, along with  my stitch markers and other small knitting accessories. I have finally come to a point where this has become chaotic. I mean, look at this jumbled mess:
Not good! Awhile back I made a case for my sock needles, but I've been needing a bigger case for the rest of my DPN's. So finally last week I cut into my beloved Sherbet Pips fabric and made one! Since there are more of these needles than my sock needles, the case needed to be quite a bit bigger, so I made it so it can roll up, which makes it nice and compact!
I made a flap that snaps down just like my sock needle cases so my needles wont slip out.
 So much neater!
Next I need to make a circular needle case and some sort of accessory bag. :) It feels so good to have things organized in a pretty way! I also destashed some knitting needles in my shop, you can check them out here.

    1. It makes me feel that way too! Especially after how messy it all was before! It's so much easier to find my needles now!
      Love you too!

    1. Thanks Kelsie! I am planning on doing a tutorial soon if you're interested. :) And right now the way I can tell which size they are is I know in my mind that the first needle on the left is size 2 and they go up from there. Eventually I plan on putting embroidered numbers on the pockets so I can easily grab the size I need. Also, my bamboo needles have the size on them which is really nice! Eventually I'd like to replace all of my needles with bamboo because I like using them a little better. ;)
