Still kicking, still knitting, and trying to finish way too many holiday knits. Why do we do this to ourselves, I said I was going to start earlier, but that never happened. Now I am in knit fast as you can mode - but then I some how volunteered myself to knit a baby shower gift for a friend. Oh the upside of volunteering I am knitting two new things and I have learned two new techniques - knitting with 2 circulars and the Magic Cast on found here and here.
No actual knitting to share currently but I wanted to share my awesome Ravelry beta T-shirt. It is a bit on the snug side, but it works. Yay for Ravelry!!!
And because I have no knitting here is a picture of how I keep my needles organized - jealous? I use a 12 slot folder normally used for bills and coupons and fold the top flap back and secure it with the elastic cord that comes with it and then I took out my handy dandy labeler and went crazy. Now in order to keep needles in there own slot with out slidding underneath the plastic I came up with card stock as a way of containing them. It works great! Then in an effort to make it just a little bit prettier I put it into one of those photo boxes you see at Michaels for under $5. The perfect solution.
Now I don't know about you, but sometimes I have multiple projects going on and my DPN are not where they should be so I have set up a system of writing the needle size, the number in the set and the location if 2 or more are being used on a random project shoved at the bottom of my bag or yarn bin. All in the hopes of organizing. SNOL
