No-sew, *no-buy* needle organiser

organiserI spent Saturday cleaning up my knitting supplies. Especially my needle collection was in dire need of some tidying. I just saw pieKnits’ homemade needle organiser and was immediately inspired. But: I had no spools or wire lying around, and the craft stores here don’t carry empty spools. Also, after I inherited an old needle collection, I have too many needles to fit them all through such small openings. I’m also much too impatient to wait until I can get to a craft store. So I made this organiser with items that were all in my house:

  • the cardboard core from a roll of aluminium foil
  • one sheet of A4 paper
  • some scotch tape
  • some cotton yarn
  • a box-cutter knife
  • a marker

So far, it’s working well. I feel very thrifty!

    Wow! That is a great idea! I don’t know if it would work for me or not. Unless I could find a nice high spot I think my cat would look at it like a big kitty toy! 😉
