How do you organize knitting needles and yarn?
Plastic Zip Bags
Plastic zip bags are good for organizing pretty much anything, but I especially dig them for holding circular needles. Keep them stacked in a drawer, or do as I have and sew several of them into a fabric case, and you’ll easily be able to see whatever needle you need for your next knitting project!
How do you organize interchangeable knitting needles?
Organize your circular needles by size by storing them in small photo storage boxes that fit into a larger organizer case. This large photo storage box, which you can find here, holds sixteen individual 4×6 cases. We labeled each case with its own size and put the corresponding needles inside.
Where do you store needles?
Use business card pages from an office supply store to hold needle cases. It’s easy to find the needle you’re looking for with these clear pages. You can also see at a glance which sizes you have and which ones you need to buy. A large pillbox is perfect for storing sewing machine needles.
Where do you store yarn?
Store all yarn in a climate controlled environment, not in a damp basement or hot attic. Store yarn in an extra closet (hanging shoe holders work great for this) or in plastic tubs out of direct sunlight. Do not store yarn in baskets on rugs.
How do you label knitting needles?
They are in long strips, and you separate each one simply by bending until the cut connection point snaps. The IDs are numbered with the US number first, then millimeters. The number of tags varies depending on the needle size, with more tags for more popular sizes.
