Organize Knitting Needles & Crochet Hooks with 5 Household Items

This week on Ask Me Monday, we chat organization. While we’re all hunkering down at home during the COVID-19 crisis, we may find ourselves with time to wrangle those craft supplies. In this installment of my weekly series, I show how to organize knitting needles and crochet hooks with 5 household items.

Organize Knitting Needles & Crochet Hooks with 5 Household Items

Organize Your Knitting Needles & Crochet Hooks with These 5 Household Items

1. Vases & Jars

I love displaying my straight knitting needles and crochet hooks in vases and mason jars around my office. Not only does it make them easily accessible, but displayed tools are also pretty adorable!

 

 

2. Pencil Boxes & Cases

While our kids are home from school, they won’t be needle pencil cases and boxes for carrying school supplies back and forth. We, however, can use them to contain our crochet hooks, double-pointed needles, and notions!

3. Plastic Containers & Shoeboxes

Plastic or cardboard shoeboxes are great keepers for circular knitting needles.  They keep the needles all in one place whilst also protecting them from becoming toys of pesky (beloved) pets!

 

4. Plastic Zip Bags

Plastic zip bags are good for organizing pretty much anything, but I especially dig them for holding circular needles. Keep them stacked in a drawer, or do as I have and sew several of them into a fabric case, and you’ll easily be able to see whatever needle you need for your next knitting project! (Psst, see a past post on how to make a knit version of a zip bag needle case here.)

 

5. Travel Toiletry Containers

Has that trip of yours been canceled? Yeah, mine, too. Here’s an organization silver lining, though. Now you can use those empty travel containers or, perhaps even more timely, empty hand sanitizer mini-bottles, to hold some of your notions. Shampoo and lotion containers work well for holding smaller cable needles and tapestry needles, and cream pots or lip balm containers are perfect keepers for stitch markers!
