Some interesting facts about knitting needles. I find that I use different types of knitting needles, metal, silverstone, and bamboo, for different knitting projects. I find that different yarns work differently on different types of knitting needles.

I wonder what started knitting projects I will find in my attic. We also are moving and the thought of cleaning out 32 years of things accumulated in my attic is frightening!
I remember starting a knitted sweater for my brother when he was 16, I think it is in the attic and should I say it is a few years ago- oh my, my brother is past 50. I guess I took it from my apartment over 32 years ago and stored it in my attic- help!!

A dictionary of knitting stitches sounds like a great home resource. I often look up knitting stitches on the internet, but I think I would prefer having this type of resource at my finger tips.

I find that I look for simpler knitting projects in the summer. I knit less than in the winter. I guess that is because it gets dark so early in the winter so I am in the house for longer hours.

I also find that if the knitting project is too complicated I get bored and put it down. So then I move onto another knitting project and forget to finish the first knitting project- so that is how I have bags of started knitting projects!!!!

Knitting needle cases might be a good idea. At the moment I am using a cardboard gift wine canister as a knitting needle holder.
