Tuesday Tips – Storage Tips
Unconventional Knitting Containers
We all have lots of little knitting notions that we have to keep up with – tapestry needles, stitch markers, etc. Finding the perfect container for storing them can be a chore. But with a little creativity, you may discover that you have the perfect container just lying around your house. Here are some of the unconventional, no-cost and environmentally-friendly things that I use for storing knitting notions.
A quick look around your house may reveal all sorts of things that you can recycle into knitting containers.
Candy, gum and medicine tins make great containers for small things like stitch markers or tapestry needles.
Mugs make great containers for knitting needles, crochet hooks and scissors. They also work great for pencils, pens and other office supplies.
Jars and Bottles
Mason jars and decorative bottles make great containers for storing buttons and leftover bits of yarn.
Coffee containers make great yarn corrals. They are generally sturdy and heavy enough not to tip over. They are great for keeping the yarn in place while you knit. The plastic ones are large enough for most skeins of yarn and have a convenient handle which makes it easy to transport your project from one place to another.
So what unconventional things do you use for holding your knitting gadgets?
