The other day, I received a package from UPS. It was my E-Bay order of about 30 knitting & crocheting needles (I was ultra excited). My roommate (sarcastically) asked "Why did I need MORE needles...". ((He was a bit upset that I would "waste" my money on such trivial thinkgs)).

When I looked at my new purchase of 30 sets of needles & realized that I already had 12 other sets, plus a set of interchangable, and plus 20 circular... I came to the understanding that "You can NEVER have too many needles"...

I'm bidding on a few more e-bay lots... Hopefully I WIN!!! Don't tell my roommate, he won't understand!

:cheering:

Show him this. It doesn't include the many that are in other projects or are waiting to be put away. No straights here, either.

Its called Circular Solution. I don't recall where I got it, but almost every on-line store carries them. I love it. It keeps the needles sorted and straight. I wish it came with a needle sizer attached. I had to hook mine on the hanger so when I put them away I know what size they are.

If I didn't keep them in there, good lord, my house would look like a pit of vipers!

My mom has one of those needle holders....I love how it makes it easier for me to find what I need when I sneak into her house to borrow her needles. :mrgreen:

Too many knitting needles? Isn't that an oxymoron?

no, an oxymoron would be something like "A new antique" or my personal favorite, "microsoft works". :roflhard: Hilde could probably tell you what that was, if she were finished with her doctorate paper.

It certainly is an oxymoron in spirit, like going into a yarn shop just to look.

I agree-never too many needles, or too much yarn...or too many knitting bools!! :D

Tell him to mind his own BEESWAX! :roflhard:
