What is the best way to store knitting needles?
Other Storage Suggestions. Use a notebook for holding extras and for keeping pesky circular needles out of the way. Keep the needles in plastic insert sheet holders, and put hook-and-loop tabs across the top to hold them closed. Put the needles into zip top bags.
How do you keep circular needles from twisting?
If you have Boye needles, or something similar with an incredibly stiff cable, they may always twist a bit. One thing you can try is dunking the cord in a cup of near-boiling water for a few seconds, and then holing it taut. That uncurls the cable and makes it easier to work with.
How do you store your knitting?
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.
How do you smooth a circular knitting needle?
Place the cord of your knitting needles in the water, leaving the needles themselves sticking out. (This will give you something to grab them with when they’re done that isn’t hot and won’t burn your fingers.) Wait about 5 – 10 minutes for the cord to soften. Take the needles out carefully and wait for them to cool.

Keep Double-Pointed Needles (DPN) Together Here are some of my favorite ideas: Use rubber bands to keep DPNs together – tuck a piece of paper inside the rubber band as a label. Store DPNs in mason jars that are sorted by their size. Use labeled pencil boxes to store DPNs.

Is it OK to store yarn in plastic bags?
Do not store yarn in plastic bags. Yarn needs to breathe and depending on the fiber can hold up to 30% it’s weight in moisture without feeling wet.
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.
