Organize It - Needle and Hook Edition!

Hi everyone! I hope you enjoyed my post yesterday about organizing your stash! Today, let's get those needles and hooks organized!

If you have lots of circular needles, you can do like I do, and keep them in a 3-ring binder. I have a sleeve marked for each size needle, and I just slip them in the top and keep them all in one place! I just have to remember to put them back!

A similar idea would be to use that CD organizer that I'm betting you have in your Car!

This spool organizer would look cute hanging in your craft room!

If you've got a bunch of straight needles, find a cute vase or pot and display them! This would be great on a coffee table, or on your desk!

Here's a link on how to crochet a holder for your crochet hooks! Roll them up and keep them neatly in one place.

 Or get yourself a paintbrush roll and sort your needles out! One like this can fit crochet hooks, DPNs, and long straights.

And if you like the above idea but want to get a little fancy, we sell these silk knitting needle holders from Lantern Moon here at the shop, they look pretty and are super practical too!

Organize It - Yarn edition!

Hi everyone! We all know how awesome Pinterest is, and if you are not following Anacapa Fine yarns on Pinterest, you are missing out! We have so much fun over there!

Today I want to share with you some Yarn Storage ideas that I found while perusing Pinterest. If you (like me) have a big stash that needs organizing, here are some ideas!

A glass front cabinet keeps you yarn safe and sound, but you also get to look at all the pretty colors!

These shelves are organized with magazine racks, a great way to keep like yarns together!

I love this peg board, you can create beautiful wall art and keep your yarn organized at the same time!

If you have a LOT of yarn, do like this person and use Shoe Organizers! They are cheap and easy to use, great for your GIANT stash!

Check back with me later in the week when I will highlight ideas for organizing needles!

Hi everyone! As I'm sure you are all well aware of, Mother's Day is just around the corner! If you need ideas on what to get your knitting or crocheting mom, or if you are a knitting or crocheting mom and just want to send this blog post to one of your kids, I'm hear today to share with you some of the fun new things we have in stock here at the store that you may like!

We just got these reading glasses in from a company called "Stuff You Love". They have knitting or crocheting designs printed on the frames and come with a matching glasses case, so cute!

Every knitter or crocheter could use more needles, and these sets from Knitter's Pride are so nice! We have interchangable needle sets and crochet hook sets.

These yarn bowls are handmade and are great for holding your yarn while you work away, and they come in lots of cute colors and styles!

These mugs from Knit Happy are another fun gift idea. Stick a Starbucks gift card in one and you have the perfect present for your mom who loves her coffee :)

I hope these ideas inspired you, and we hope to see you in the shop soon!
