Tidy Mind, Tidy Stitches - 2KCBWDAY3
I am not a tidy person. I'm ok with that. (My mother, however, is not - you can hear the disapproval leaking out of her pores whenever she visits me).
This is where I keep most of my knitting tools.
It's organised chaos - I know whats in there and it doesn't take me long to find it when I need it.
I keep the WIPs that I'm working on in project bags so I can grab one (or two) and shove them in my handbag if I'm going anywhere, and I mean ANYWHERE. Even if it is extremely unlikely I will get a chance to knit I will take knitting JUST. IN. CASE. If I got stuck or delayed somewhere and I didn't have knitting I would be (to put it mildly) annoyed so I very rarely take that chance.
Here are a few of my collection. The lilac Alice in Wonderland was a custom order made for me by the lovely NicsKnots. The Horror one with werewolves and mummies is from The Bothered Owl. The zip-up Skull and Crossed Knitting Needles bag is from PixlKitten
The best and most useful thing I've ever bought is the Knit Kit (I got mine from Hulu) I take it everywhere, it has everything in need in almost all situations, scissors, tape measure, tapestry needle, little cable needle (I added that), I wouldn't be without it.
I keep most of my stitch markers on an old kilt pin, it keeps them all in one place. The Lego ones are from The Bothered Owl, the Pin-up girls are from Knit Girl in Idaho and the little sheep was a free gift from EasyKnits.
