Even little things count in CED

Today, this morning actually, I felt totally lazy, and did not want to do anything.

Somehow I forced myself to do some knitting, but that was not going well. My needles
gave me a hard time. I could not find a needle that felt good with the project I was working on.

What did I do? I dumped all my straight needles on my bed, and organized them in groups, and then sorted them in sets of sizes,

smallest to 3.75 mm in one set,
4 mm to 6.5 mm in one set,
and 7 mm to 20 yet another set.
I also have quite a few Tunisian crochet
hooks, starting from size 14 (US size) to 5 mm

Let's not to forget the needles that are shorter than 13", they are now in
one container, regardless of the size. However these are not dbl pointed
needles, they are another story, another organization event another day.

I am so glad I did this, and felt as if a great creation was done.

I have been knitting most of my life, starting in my pre-teens and even inherited my
mom's stash, thus my needle stash was fairly sizable.

Good for you! You created organization today. I could sure use some of that myself!!

When I see an out of place needle, I immediately put it in the right place. I guess I didn't catch them all.
