It's been 11-ish months since the last time I talked about Project Needles on the blog, but don't think I've been lazy since that time. There has been a whole lot of thinking, let me tell you. Such thinking, you guys. About storage and whatnot. Really!
Behold, some 1-gallon Garrett's Popcorn tins, left from the winter holidays, now empty of their original contents:
They look like paint cans, only super classy, and more importantly: popcorn cans often come with dividers to separate different flavors of deliciousness in one tin. These did not (Chicago mix FTW!), but the idea was still planted in this brain of mine. So the thought is: the dividers I make would be movable for additions etc., I could store each needle size separately while keeping like sizes near each other (oh yeah, I decided that was a priority, keeping all size US7s together regardless of needle type), and the handles make them infinitely portable.
Opinions? I'm still looking for the proper way to fully clean out cheese-ish residue.
