I found this unfinished weaving at my local thrift store. Isn’t it beautiful? I’m not sure what I am going to do with it. I don’t have the skills required to finish it, but I couldn’t stand to leave it setting there on the shelf, all rolled up and unappreciated. Maybe it will find it’s way into a different kind of weaving project of my own. My creative wheels are turning. . .
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?
