I use two 5" crystal vases to hold dp's, 6" ruler, crochet hooks, etc. AND two 2" crystal vases to hold small scissors, tapestry needle, tweezers, etc. All the little things that I need readily "at hand" whilst in my 'knitting place'.
I use two tapesty zippered cases and take just the essentials for my projects.
On the grand scale:
I purchased a unique oak chest that is 25" wide facing me, and only 7" tall. It has 18 little drawers (about 5" deep) that hold all of my knitting notions such as point protectors, brass safety pins, stitch markers, tape measures, etc. This oak chest sits right in front my 'knitting place' on the 'coffee table'.
If anyone is interested, I will post a digital photo of this chest. I purchased it at a craft fair/swap meet from a retired gentleman who is a woodworker. I LOVE MY LITTLE OAK CHEST!
For my circs collection:
I use 6 circ cases: 3 tapesty, 3 toile. The tapestry cases were pricey from a LYS...the cotton toile cases are GREAT and
inexpensive... purchased from a little gal on Ebay. I think she has an Ebay shop. If anyone is interested, I will post a link if I can locate it.
