Nedles and Patterns! =)


These needles I made of grilling sticks (thin ones) and ice cream bars sticks (thicker ones). I used a pencil sharpener and I sanded them A LOT!!! I did not get to use them 'cause they are still back in Brazil...




And here are my pattern binders!!! I also keep the free patterns you can get at stores in them! =) I am still working on them. One is my projects in progress and the second is my knitting book I also have a couple more but they dont have cover yet but I really enjoy making them! =) I hope you guys like the ideas!!!! =)
Have a great week!!! Kisses!!! =)

Your needles and binders are awesome! I wondered if grilling screwers would work and they are definitely working for you!!!!

You made those from grilling skewers and ice cream sticks!! Too cool! You and Shalanda are going to inspire a bunch of us to try making our own knitting needles!

Awesome ideas on organizing your patterns! That looks so much better than my current method of shoving my folded printed off instructions into my knitting books. Yep, gonna have to steal that idea!

We must be organizing geeks! I have several notebooks, not as pretty as yours, that hold free patterns. I have one for bookmarks and flowers, one for ornaments and snowflakes it goes one and on. I have a wip/fo book too but soon will need one for each. I've started some knitting needles from chopsticks. Thanks for sharing:)

Oh, your pattern books are so much cuter than mine! Mine are still just boring white binders. You've inspired me to jazz them up!
