This is.. my trade secret. Not so much a secret, but the way I like to organise my cherished knit picks interchangeable knitting needles. With my knit picks I have been able to pass on all my straight needles and just have a few 30 and 40cm fixed circulars in regularly used sizes. By using the long cables and a variation of the magic loop, I have been able to do without DPNS as well.
My only issue with them is that the points do not come with any markings identifying the size, however some id tags are provided in the kit so I have used some hair elastics to slip over the id tag and then wrap around the needles. It keeps them looking neat and now I can see them at a glance.
My Mum tip of the trade, is remember children are people too.

Well, for the first time in ages, a knitting post on what is supposed to be a knitting blog.
