I love to go thrift store shopping. It is not uncommon for me to spend a couple hours scouring just one thrift store. I love the hunt. I’ll park myself in an isle & crouch down low to dig at the back of the shelves where other shoppers might take a glance down, but usually walk right past. That is where the good stuff is hidden. But that is not where I found this. This cabinet was setting on table near the cash register. I glanced over in that direction in search of a clock & there it was. From across the room, I heard it call my name. I made a beeline over to the table & scooped it up in my arms. It was love at first sight.
Today, this perfectly rustic cabinet sets on my shelf & proudly holds all of my knitting tools.
It’s drawers are the perfect size for storing all my knitting needles. This is my collection of needles made by Joes Fiber Tool.
I realize this may not be the most efficient way to organize my knitting needles. The truth is, I love all of my needles, I like to look at them, I like how they feel, & I enjoy digging through them to find the right needle that I need. I’ve seen all kinds of different ways that people have their needles organized, but having ADD, I know that none of those systems would work for me. I’m a dump & run kind of girl, so this is what works best for me. How do you keep your knitting needles organized?
What?! You say you’ve never heard of curved knitting needles before? Well, that is because Joe over at Joe’s Fiber Tools is the first to make them, & the only place to get them is right here in the shop!
The curves are a new product & I have to say I LOVE them. They feel so natural in my hands. The curve puts my hands at a more comfortable angle & the ends of my needles are no longer constantly hitting whoever or whatever is around me. Being a mom with 2 kids & a cat that is kind of important to me. I don’t often have much room surrounding my lap.
To order a pair for yourself (or for a friend) visit the shop!
