Storing tools for sewing and knitting
Once in a while I stumble across the work of an artist that makes me fall in love.
When I saw the ceramics that Karin Eriksson made in collaboration with Camilla Engman through Manos Ceramics, I found a stunning way to keep better track of some important tools of mine.
When I am in the mood to quilt or knit I don't want to wonder where my favorite tools are. Some of the smaller ones like finger cots, short sock needles and darning needles used to roam all over my house with free reign to live in various project bags.
Not so much anymore.
The containers from Manos are a beautiful way to store some of my more frequently used tools.
Manos ships internationally with very good turnaround time and careful packing for safe arrival. Since a trip to visit their shop in Stockholm isn't on my radar in the near future, goodies in the mail will have to do for now.
Do you have a special, beautiful way to store your tools? I'd love to hear your secrets.
