I can't believe this...  I logged into Craftster to look for ideas for ways to store my knitting supplies...  and ON THE TOP OF THE FORUM PAGE WAS YOUR PROJECT!

The FSM has spoken.  I am inspired.  I will be doing this, this weekend.

Thank you for sharing!

this is very cool - it will definitely clean up and help organize the trainwreck of knitting goodies in our house.

Very good idea.  May I suggest a narrow elastic rather than gathering for the outside pockets. 

That is an interesting idea.  I was thinking that a little bit of gathering would be more like easing a sleeve cap and not too gathery Huh

Thank you, everyone for all your nice comments and ideas.  I went back and took some measurements and notes and posted a tutorial on my blog for everyone.  It is for a five gallon bucket, but it would give you and idea of how to adapt it to a different sized bucket.  If anyone has any questions please just ask and I will do my best to answer them Smiley

Please show us all pictures if you make one, I'd love to see what everyone comes up with.

I love your organizer!!!  It's awesome and a great destasher as well as having everything at hand. I don't\won't knit but inherited lots of needles from my Mom.  I just stuck them into a prickles cylinder.  This idea is fantastic!!!  Thank you for posting a tute.  It is a great base for other uses too.  I love organizers\space solutions.

Oh you clever, clever woman!  I just started knitting last fall and my stash/storage area is a disaster! 

I should know better than to wrack my brain trying to come up with organizing ideas....I just need to come to Crafster and look at all the cool stuff you smart folks create!

My DH is a factory manager so I have boatloads of industrial buckets and since I live with three model railroaders, I also have lots of great vintage train fabric!

I am definitely moving this project up the queue of all the stuff I have to make!

Great Job!
