Now that I’ve got my DPNs squared away, it’s time I did something (anything) with my circulars.
Right now (and, honestly for the last 15+ years), they’ve lived in one big jumble in this shopping bag. It’s not pretty. From time to time, I go through and try to match them up with their envelopes. It’s a pain and I hate it, so mostly they’re just a big old rats nest hanging at the back of my closet. Don’t judge me.In the back of my mind, I knew that there were circular needle holders out there- my mom even sells them. (She won’t let me buy anything from her shop, but you should buy from her. Her stuff is amazing.) So I pulled out the sewing machine and some fabric scraps and whipped up this bad boy myself.
It’s not the prettiest. (In my defense, I picked my fabrics at night when the light was not great, and I thought the yellow was a better match, but still. Also- rickrack? Really?) But it’s functional and has already saved me a bunch of time. It’s great seeing all the needles I have all laid out. Weirdly, I have a lot more US3s than I expected, and a lot fewer US8s. Funny how that goes. At least now I know, and won’t keep buying 3s…
How do you organize your needles?
