Getting Organized - Needle/Hook Inventory

Imagine wanting to start a new project and discovering that you cannot find the right size needle or hook. 

After frantically searching every bag and bin, you begin to wonder if you even own that particular size. 

Now might be a good time to inventory your growing knitting needle and crochet hook collection. 

Start by gathering all the items that you can find: look in bags, baskets, bins, and vases. Sort the items by size, length, and type.

Ravelry.com
If you want to create an online inventory, Ravelry has a needle inventory database file available. Log in to Ravelry and click on the "my notebook" tab. You will see a box like the one shown at left - note the needles & hooks section.  

You will be able to enter the number of needles or hooks you have for each size and type. 

Note that you will also be able to print a wallet-sized card, but this information will also be available anywhere you have internet access.
