How do you organize knitting needles and yarn?
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!
How do you organize circular knitting needles?
Organize your circular needles by size by storing them in small photo storage boxes that fit into a larger organizer case. This large photo storage box, which you can find here, holds sixteen individual 4×6 cases. We labeled each case with its own size and put the corresponding needles inside.
How do you label knitting needles?
They are in long strips, and you separate each one simply by bending until the cut connection point snaps. The IDs are numbered with the US number first, then millimeters. The number of tags varies depending on the needle size, with more tags for more popular sizes.
Why do I keep adding stitches to my knitting?
The most common reasons that extra stitches occur are either accidental yarn overs and inadvertent knitting into space between stitches. An “accidental yarn over” occurs when you bring your yarn to the front of the work (as opposed to keeping it in the back).

What can I store my knitting needles in?
I use two-gallon Ziplock storage bags. All needles of one size fit in one bag, circular, straight and Double points. I just mark the bag with the size, stack them on a shelf and there they are. If you’re working on a project, the yarn and pattern usually fit inside this bag too.
How do you store knitting accessories?
Use a notebook for holding extras and for keeping pesky circular needles out of the way. Keep the needles in plastic insert sheet holders, and put hook-and-loop tabs across the top to hold them closed. Put the needles into zip top bags.
