52 weeks, 52 projects: finished object #4

for awhile now, my knitting needle storage situation has been pretty frustrating, and this week i began to remedy the situation. i bought some of those bill/receipt plastic filing envelopes at target, and i labeled each section with needle sizes. now my circular knittings are all tucked away in their own little slots, and i won't have to search for the right size needle ever again. it's quite a bit different from a scarf or a puppet, but i think this totally counts as a finished object: there were specific materials involved, and i had to manipulate the materials to get the final result. sorry my pictures are not looking so great... i need to start checking the weekend weather so i can take my photos on sunny days, not overcast days with yucky lighting.

the stats:
  • materials: 2 plastic filing envelopes, tangled mess of circular needles
  • cost: $2 for envelopes (they were in the dollar spot), circular needles part of the never-ending craft supply stash

to make this post a bit more exciting, i included one of my works-in-progress in my photo. it's a few inches of the front of a sweater. i doubt it will be done in time to be next week's finished object, but be on the lookout for it soon!

This is such a good storage idea!

full disclosure: i basically stole the idea from a very beautiful and fancy circular needle case from knit picks. their case has the same "filing system" inside, but the outside is leather, and it costs significantly more than $2.
