Whilst tidying my studio and making knitting needle rolls I have been contemplating various ways of storing my precious knitting needles.

Why not reuse an item from around your home?

Clogs, if only I had some!

Although I have to admit to craving  a beautiful upcycle wine crate:

    That’s a great tutorial, I think even I could just about manage it if I put my mind to it 🙂 I keep my knitting needles in a cardboard tube container which held a whisky bottle, it’s sturdy and easily replaceable when it gets worn, so I keep all our whisky containers!

      I did consider buying a whiskey bottle to photograph the tube holding needles, but as I don’t like whiskey resisted!! Glad you like the tutorial:)

    I made myself a needle roll from fabric along the lines of the felted roll in your picture. It is great as it fits so neatly into my knitting basket. I like Yvonne’s idea of a cardboard tube.

    I have a silk needle case by Lantern Moon that my husband gave me before we were married. I just knew he was the one! I have a post about it on my blog. If I don’t have time to store away my needles, I reused an old glass candle jar which sits on my desk and keep them there in the meantime.
