positively-emerald asked: any advice for keeping needles organized? I have about seven thousand of various sizes and styles and it's driving me nuts that I don't have them sorted out, but I don't know where to start!

This is kind of an ironic question since I’m in a similar boat,lol. A google image search tells me that the possibilities are nearly endless. There are what look like dry cleaning bags with little pockets sewn on (great for circulars) that you would hang on a wall or the back of a door, rolls (which work on a similar principle without the “hanging on something” part) that you can use for single and double pointed needles. I personally (try to) keep my needles in their original packaging.

Followers with ideas feel free to chime in.

I use an old paint brush case like this, fits a pair of straights and dpns until size 8 in one slot; and most of them usually have a pocket behind the individual slots where I keep my circs and other supplies.

Best solution, hands down; I got mine (full of paitnbrushes at the time) for about 3 bucks.

It even fits lengthwise for all my needles except one pair, so the zipper can only close 90%, but it’s worth it

this is gold ^ :)

Oh hey there. I make these awesome embroidery hoop organizers that keep your needles out of boxes and turns them into awesome display pieces. Those rolly fabric organizers work fine, but I still feel that people will put needles in there and just put that in a box to stow away ya know? I charge between 25-35 bucks for them and will do custom orders to match whatever needles or decor you have :)

The Australian Nerdfighters are running a project to create and hand out care packages to the homeless in some of Australia’s major cities.  
 
On any given night one in 200 Australians will experience homelessness. We aim to hand out 300 care packs which will include essential hygiene items, water, snacks, socks and scarves, and an info sheet detailing local support services.
There are a number of ways to help our team of dedicated Nerdfighters reach our goal: you can knit scarves (http://dft.ba/-knitting), make a cash donation (https://www.mycause.com.au/page/67002), or volunteer (http://dft.ba/-packs4homeless
Like our Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/packs4homeless) and follow us on Twitter for up to date information on the exciting happenings with the Project, and to help show your support!

woolen wings

Raw fleece: 3 days to wash and dry; about 2-3 years to hand-card the wool and spin on a Turkish drop-spindle; at least two 5-10 day sessions of natural dyeing; another 2 weeks skeining the wool; 7 months to knit the blanket; one afternoon to machine wash and “full” (shrinking process to make it more durable); 5 minute photo shoot; priceless.

Small note, I didn’t make this blanket.

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.

We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”

I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”

He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

-Anthony Mackie getting in trouble for signing his posters at a Micheals  (x)

I’m pretty sure everyone’s goal in life is to do something they love as much as Anthony Mackie loves playing Falcon. I love him so much.
