I am looking for a needle chart in MS Word or Excel that I can print out and keep with me. I am forever buying duplicate needles since I can never remember what I have!
Anyone have one to share so I don't have to re-create the wheel?
Thanks in advance!

:thinking: Interesting idea and a good one! I've never heard of one, but maybe someone else has.

What size range do you want? I can make one up in <5 min as soon as I get home, and put it on my website... I'm thinking 000 -> 15ish and have options for DPN, circ and straights... perhaps short and long straights? Different length circs (16", 24, 29, 32, other)?


Let me know what you want, I'll build it. I'll even save it in multiple formats (word, excel, html)

I'll build it when I get home- I'm at work and the file wouldn't be able to go up yet, so I'll just wait the hour till I'm home. I can also make revisions once its up, I don't mind :) I'm used to spreadsheets, I build complex tracking spreadsheets for work all the time, this won't be bad at all!

Go to my website- www.dragonwingarts.com and it's on the main page. Let me know if you want any changes or other formats. Right now, it's a PDF file, so hopefully it is viewable to everyone!

(Moderators- if you have any way to get this on the main KH site and want to-- go right ahead!)

They showed an option on Knitty Gritty a while back that was cool. Take your needle guide and trace and label the holes on an index card. Make one each for straights, DPNs, and circs. Then color in the holes for the needles you already have.

That looks pretty good. I'll have a better look and let you know if I find anything. Thanks so much for doing this!

Wow, very nice. can't wait until it is in electronic format to put on my pc to keep updated. Thanks so much.

What about adding something for type such as bamboo vs metal? I have both. Would that benefit anyone else?

This would also be great to keep on my PDA. Oh boy, this is great.

What a fantastic idea! I'm always buying duplicates because Irun to my LYS at lunch time, see something I have to have, and am too impatient to wait until the next day, even though my LYS is about 2 miles from my office. Thanks a bunch! :cheering: :cheering:
