So I was checking my email last night and I got a piece of spam. Now this wouldn't be weird all by itself, but it was the "person" who sent me the email which was weird. The person was...Barbara Walker. Yeah, weird, I know. I can't seem to erase the email, because it is just too weird.

Today I bought the most perfect needle organizer ever! Isn't it awesome?! I have all the needles from size 000 up to size 11 in their own separate bins (10 and 10 and 1o 1/2 share the same bin with a divider), larger sizes share a bin, and then I have three bins for extra knitting stuff like row counters and Chibi needles. If you are curious, I decided to organize my needles by US sizes and not metric. I am not sure if I am going to stick with this plan for the long term, but I am happy with it for now. I do have an extensive excel worksheet listing all possible data per knitting needle, so if I do need a particular metric size, I can go to that and not have to go through all the bins.

Oh! I got my boxes from RI today! My knitting books arrived safely and tomorrow My Dad and I are going to buy industrial shelves that can take up to 600lbs per shelf (I have serious shelf wharping issues...I am completely dissillusioned with the entire bookshelf industry) to put my knitting books and other books (like school books, I guess) on it.

Alright, must get some sleep...I am going to the DMV at the crack of dawn tomorrow.



  1. Ooh - I love the baker's rack type shelving. It's usually silver in color, sometimes sold at Bed Bath & Beyond-type stores, and has attachments - additional bins, shelf dividers and such. And holds tremendous amounts of weight.

  2. My goodness! I'm still in the ziploc stage of evolution and I already feel like the needles are taking over.

    I predict... you will run out of room for yarn and will think this needle organizer would display yarn nicely...
