While antiquing over the weekend, I happened upon a beautiful old jar filled to the brim with knitting needles. Immediately I was overwhelmed with pure, unadulterated, instant LOVE! My needles are always all over the place. When they are put away - which isn't often - I store them in really ugly, but useful, cardboard tubes labeled by size. But I use truly lovely needles (Harmony by Knit Picks) and stuffing them in these tubes makes me sad. I want the world to see how pretty they are! Additionally, it's much more handy to have them out in an easy to reach place rather than shoved in a drawer.
Solution. Fabulous antique jars filled with my knitting needles. Genius, I say... pure genius! And in the process I cleaned off the top of my desk too.
The empty jars will have needles... they just happen to be in use at the moment.
