Needled

A vase full of straight needles

How do you store your needles? I like to keep my straights in a vase, but there are many straight needle case options out there that are more suited for transport.  If you are DIY all the way you could sew your own, or, if you prefer, there are plenty of options available for purchase.

It took me a while to figure out how to store my circulars, but I finally settled on the Circular Solution. Since it is designed to hang from a hanger, it doesn’t take up much room in my closet, and all of my needles hang straight so they aren’t all twisted when I want to use them.

Della Q  circular needle holders

New in the shop are some really cute circular cases from Della Q including the limited edition cotton print shown above in polka dots. This circular needle case holds multiple circulars in 12 numbered pockets that hold more than one set of needles, and also includes a small zip pocket for notions. The Della Q Hanging circular needle organizer is very similar to the Circular Solution, but with a cute notions pocket at the bottom and some colorful fabric options. Practical and cute they would also make a nice gift for a knitter. Stop by and check them out today.

They’re here! These super cute bags from Top Shelf Totes just hit our shelves. Stylish and durable these guys are waiting to carry around your projects.  With a removable and adjustable strap, you can make it fit your shoulder perfectly and inside you will find three pockets for carrying your phone, needles, notions and anything else you may need. While carrying the “Totable” you will find that the angle is perfect for retrieving things or knitting while you walk.

Three grommets across the front provide a fun detail along with functionality (like headphones while in transit) and the large tooth zipper across the top keeps everything safe and secure.

Pictured above: The inside of the totable and a few of the cute fabric options these guys come in.
