I wanted to share some handy little things I made not so long ago to help me get organized.

First I designed some double pointed needle pouches to keep all those pesky needles together. I was always misplacing them and it was driving me nuts so I sewed these up. They're really easy to make and don't require any sort of button or snap. I have wrote instructions on how to make pouches for double pointed needles sizes 0-11. They're so handy to have around, and perfect for when you take your knitting with you and only need to bring one set of needles.
I posted a step by step tutorial if you're interested!



The second thing I created was a knitting journal. I wanted something that I could keep expanding as I created more stuff, so I designed six different pages to print and fill out. There are pages for you to fill out information on your FO's, keep track of the yarn in your stash and patterns on your to-do list, and more. You can print out however many you need, slip them into plastic sheet protectors, and organize them into a binder for easy reference. It is really satisfying being able to flip through a book and being able to see all your FO's neatly organized in one place. It works great as a brag book too Wink
I have posted all of the pages, and they're free to download so good luck creating and customizing your perfect knitting journal!

I will definately be making the DPN cases.  I've been looking for a way to store the ever-growing collection.  The journal pages are beautiful.  They really appeal to obsessive-complusive need I have for organization!!
