How do I organize my knitting supplies?
Store knitting needles in labeled Zip Lock bags. Use a small three-drawer organizer to separate straight needles, circular needles, DPNs and crochet hooks. Protect and store knitting books in a plastic container with pull out drawers.
What is the best way to store circular knitting needles?
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.

What is the best way to organize yarn?
Consider a Few Wire Baskets to Keep Yarn Organized Instead of placing your yarn on a shelf, use wire baskets to keep the yarn together and organized. Wire baskets are a better option than baskets because you can see through them on all sides.
How do I organize my DPNs?
DPNs or Double Pointed Knitting Needles You can keep your double points on display in a vase too. It’s best to tie these together by size so you don’t have to check each one when it’s time to start a project. You can use a rubber band, hair ties, or even twist ties.
What knitting needles are best for beginners?
For beginners, experts recommend bamboo or wooden needles because the stitches don’t slide off of the needles as easily as they do with other materials. In addition, they’re also comfortable in your hands and won’t slip away like other materials such as plastic or aluminum needles.

Should I roll my yarn into a ball?
Many knitters will roll their yarn from a skein or hank into a ball for ease of use. Rolling skeins that have lost their shape because of how little yarn they have into a ball is an easy way to keep your yarn from tangling as you knit.
How do you store balls of yarn?
Here are some tips:
- Do not store yarn in plastic bags.
- Store all yarn in a climate controlled environment, not in a damp basement or hot attic.
- Store yarn in an extra closet (hanging shoe holders work great for this) or in plastic tubs out of direct sunlight.
- Do not store yarn in baskets on rugs.
How do you sort and store yarn?
Plastic bags – Shopping bags can help sort yarn in large totes. Clear zippered bags that bedding comes in works great for yarn storage. Oversized ziploc bags are similarly good. Small ziploc bags are great for partially used skeins to keep the yarn and ball band together.
