  1. my needles and hooks like to hide under my carseat... thats right car seat I can tell you how many times I have drop a hook or needle and who knows how many stitch markers in the car only to find them weeks later.. I am always knitting in the car either in the drive through, school pick up line, road trips, pretty much all the time ...I guess its bound to happen :)

  2. In my wips. at least i think so, I haven't found them yet.

    ReplyDelete
  3. In long-forgotten projects. wips galore!

  4. I have a bucket where projects hibernate and it's inevitable that the needles I'm looking for are on a project in there.

  5. I find my needles all over the place because I knit all over the place - under my car seat, under the cushion in my lounge chair, under the cushion of my love seat, caught in the fold of the cushion on my futon in my TV room, of one of the shelves in my several book cases, hiding under napkins on my table, lurking amongst my dye pots, stuck behind my ear like a pencil, down between the sheets on my bed, attached to a work in progress, and even in my dog's bed. No I do not knit in my dogs bed, but I have a dog that likes to take my stuff and hide it.

  7. My needles are very well behaved when not in use. They stay comfortably tucked away in their various nooks, crannies, cubbies and cottage. Yes, I have a cottage for my needles. Ahem.

    It's only when they are actively involved in a project that they like to vanish. They break away from the cruel torture of being unmercifully bound and cruelly constrained by countless loops of oppresive yarn. EIther that, or it's a comment on my poor knitting skills. Naw, it's gotta be the first thing, right? Thanks for the contest! KittenWhiplash on rav

  8. Mostly my needles and hooks stay with their project in their bags. Once in a while I will find them in with my nail polish bottles because that shelf is next to a comfy place to sit on the floor.

    ReplyDelete
  9. They are hiding usually in my knitting bags!!!! Those devils never seem to make it back into the case!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I find they like to run off with the single socks that take off from the dryer! (honestly though, I find them in the couch, chairs, and even in my hair!)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  36. They're mostly in my wips, but also on the dresser & in the knitting bag.

  37. Mine are forever getting lost between the seats on my couch. However recently, I called my boyfriend into the bedroom to help me search for my 5th dpn, I couldn't find it for the life of me. He looks around the bed for a minute and then goes "Okay, I'm going to do a magic trick" and then he pulled the needle out from behind my ear.

I've been crying over this needle being lost n there it is from my Angel above its back.. ty lord for making me believe agin..

  45. Needles tend to hide in wips or ufos mostly or down the back of the sofa.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I tend to lose mine in the car in some area between the seats that I can never find afterwards.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Mine hide in the various bags that I carry my knitting around...I tend to always lose them though. I have to keep buying new needles to keep up....I'm sure if I went through all my stuff I'd find about 5 sets of needles..I could use a really nice set that I would take very good care of...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Both needles and hooks like to hide in the sofa...but can also be found in the bottom on my project bag, and even manage to slip under the seat in the car every once in a while....

    ReplyDelete
  49. Definitely in the crevasse of my lazyboy seat cushion. The only way I can convince them to come out is tilt the whole thing on it's side and shake. Then repeat the other side.

    ReplyDelete
  50. My 15 month old son likes to make me find his hiding places where he stashes my needles... Last time he took them they were in a bucket underneath the kitchen sink, with the project still attached! He's a mischievous little man!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Mine like to vanish and turn up as wizard wands or pirate swords...I feel like the parents in A Christmas Story telling my kids to put them down or they'll poke an eye out!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I recently switched from inexpensive interchangeable needles to the Symfonie Dreamz. I keep them on my WIPs as they make those few moments of knitting in between "life" so much more enjoyable. Thanks for making such a great product!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. In my furbabies' beds. They become loot for my doggies.

    ReplyDelete
  54. My needles (especially the wooded DPNs) seem to double as cat toys... she steals them and I find them in her bed. She doesn't chew them, just swipes them. We have a strange kitty. :)

  55. My needles are always in my knitting bag.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'm embarrassed to say, but my needles like to hide in my UFO's............ (Unfinished Objects) and that is why I need more.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Since I couldn't knit without my needles, I never let my needles hide - they hold a place in my craftroom, zipped into their plastic bags so they can't ever escape. There are no deserters so far :-)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Dear Knitters Pride, my needles like to hide with unfinished projects! Crammed somewhere in a cupboard! Having a set of interchangeable a would just be a dream. And knitters pride interchangeables!! Thanks, Alice

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm always finding needles in my WIP bags that don't belong to the WIP. I had thrown them in to do a gauge swatch but completely forgotten I'd done that. Then when I actually want to start the project I can't find them!

    ReplyDelete
  72. In my hair. I stick a needle into my curly hair so I can do something else (and not lose it) then I go looking for the needle, usually find it when I bend over to check if it fell onto the floor as it falls out of my hair and onto the floor!! :D

    Under a cushion or the chair. Unless the cats find them first! Then, they could be anywhere in the house.

    ReplyDelete
  78. One set in a project, some tucked away in their holder, and 3 who managed to break themselves doing extreme knitting stunts instead of working on the project they were attached to.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Mostly mine like to hide in the back of my couch cushions!

    ReplyDelete
  86. I think my sofa and my recliner have an ongoing competition to see which one of them can capture the most of my needles. It got so bad with my sofa I had to put a sheet on it so if something did drop behind me I could just pull up the sheet and out pops the runaway item.

    ReplyDelete
  87. My needles typically hide in different project bags when they are not in their correct case. I'm usually pretty good though about knowing where they are :)

    ReplyDelete

    chelsey b 5 @ aol dot com

    ReplyDelete
  94. Mine are usually very organized in my studio...but then there are those that are in projects or awaiting being returned to their proper place that seem to want to play hide and seek. I can almost always find a few doublepoints or a lonely singlepoint or even an occasional short circular under or between the cushions on the sofa in my favorite knitting corner.

    ReplyDelete
  95. They are in a box next to the couch in my living room. All within easy reach.

  96. My needles are so good at hiding that I never find them once they go missing. I keep buying more but typically lose them, too! I'm going to check some of the suggested hiding places this weekend and see if I can't find any of the mischievous ones.

    ReplyDelete
  97. My needles are well behaved. They are either in WIPS or in their case. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Most of my needles are very well behaved and stay in the the sewing box I use to store them. However, they've been known to turn up in my purse, in the bottom of knitting bags I haven't used in months, and on top of my dresser in the bedroom.

  102. My kids like to take them and sword fight with them, so they're usually hiding under the bed or behind the toy box. I Don't mind, especially when they use them like a wizard wand!

    ReplyDelete
  103. The better question is where DON'T they hide? I find needles all over the house!

    ReplyDelete
  104. my needles really like to wander off and hide under my laptop or behind my bed.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Mine hide in UFO's, bottom of bags and some hide so well, I end ordering more before they come out of their hiding place!

    ReplyDelete
  131. Many are rogue and missing from their packages in UFOs...wooden straights are in a painted flower pot on my work table. Often will see some from a freshly finished project sitting on a step halfway up the stairs, waiting for my next trip up to the work room to be stowed away.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Mine are hiding in plain sight as I have been distracted by a crochet project. My UFO's complete with needles are sitting on the coffee table...

    1. Down the side of my chair or snuggled into my latest project bag

      Delete
  137. Mostly with my wips. But when they get lost I lose them both because I love circulars :(

    ReplyDelete
  138. If only I knew....
    Sometimes they are in bags with WIP in the spare room, sometimes in my basket, sometimes in the couch but more often- I don't know. Maybe having 1 or 3 projects on needles will help but who am I kidding?

    ReplyDelete
  139. I have left the house on more than one occasion with a DPN in my cleavage or holding up my hair ... you know because if you put them on the couch you may sit on one. Then there are the unfortunate ones that get abducted and used in the kids crafts.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Mine are usually tucked away in my knitting bag next to my chair. Although my naughty doxie will go rummaging through and drag them out.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Mine are usually hiding in my UFOs, which, are WAY too many. I know I should finish them, but I get SO distracted with new and exciting projects! I did find one of my DPNs under my covers in bed...could it be that I fell asleep while knitting?

    ReplyDelete
  142. in a box in the upstairs bath, in the bath tub - of course!

  144. They are part of my living room decor. I keep my long straight needles in an old pasta container, and the shorter ones in a little bucket. The DPNs & circulars are tucked into various cases, bins & WIPs. I'd like to make a chandelier with some of them, to keep those cords loose and lazy.

    ReplyDelete
  145. My needles like to hide in the bottom of project bags. Somehow they slip down there, I go to my second set and when I finish the project finally find the first ones!

    ReplyDelete
  146. My needles like to hide in the bottom of my knitting basket.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I always find mine under piles of yarn, put them into the knitting basket, and find them again in another odd place like they move themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  148. They are either in a UFO or they land under the knitting basket--I am not sure how they get there! I've got to be better about using the many cases I have, so I can actually find them when I need them instead of buying more.

    ReplyDelete
  149. In a basket in the corner of my bedroom and in bags holding projects in various states of completion (or not!).

    ReplyDelete
  150. My needles like to hid in the car. They are very social and love going for a ride and get out and visit friends every week at the knitting group. I have found the straight needles are more outgoing then the circular needles - the straight needles seem to know their mind and don't mind telling or poking anyone who is around. The circular love to be in a group but are more quiet and reserved. You just never know where you will find them!

    ReplyDelete
  151. Mine are in a container (or should be!)

  152. Marguerite Mayhall14 June 2014 at 09:56

    So far I only have a few, since I just started knitting in February. My husband and son gave me a beautiful Namaste messenger bag for my knitting, and it has pockets enough for most of my fixed circulars - but I'm fast outgrowing it!

    ReplyDelete
  153. In their shaker box, the small dresser, or project bags.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Long after I had given up on ever finding it, I found a tiny sock needle nestled into the narrow crack between two floorboards in my parlor.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I have my own nook on our sectional, and it never fails they get wedged under the connecting cushions. Usually though they are in a roll up craft case.

    ReplyDelete
  156. In baskets and draws with 1/2 completed projects on them.
    Under the couch.
    In my 5 year old daughter's garden! she thinks knitting needles make great tools to plant seeds and stake up her weeds (oops I mean plants).
    In the dog's bed ... attached to a totally unravelled ball of yarn and project ... BAD DOG!
    and sometimes .. just sometimes .. in the specially designed knitting needle and crochet cases I purchased to store them in ;)

    Thanks for the chance to win ... I have been wistfully longing one of these sets for a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  157. If it's just a single tip, it will be behind my ear like a pencil! Lol. Thanks for the giveaway chance. Great idea! :)

    ReplyDelete
  158. My needles hide in this knitting bag, or that knitting bag, or maybe in this project (not quite finished) or possibly in that one. Thanks for asking.

  160. Mine are scattered all over. Most of my long tunisian hooks and seldom used short hooks are in a desk drawer. The hooks I use most are in a recycled Crystal Ice container on my desk. My DPNs and circulars are in another desk drawer. My straight aluminum needles and Tunisian hooks are in a plastic bin.

  161. Mine snug away in WIPs or in one of those IKEA "bucket on a rail" organizers on my wall. I found a stash of crochet hooks under my pillow when I made my bed recently and that confused me since 1) I don't usually craft in bed and 2) I don't crochet. I later remembered that I'd been working on a cowl project at 0400 and was trying to rearrange/reladder pattern stitches to correct a misplaced YO. With my shoddy memory I'm sure there are more needled around SOMEWHERE... either that or they just wander off on their own, like little skinny hobbits on an adventure.

  179. My needles love to travel. As RVers, we explore this great country coast to coast-usually with projects with various degrees of difficulty depending on the scenery.

  182. The wicked things never stay where I put them. They seem innocent at night when I put them to bed and tuck them lovingly into their projects. So cozy covered in their wooly loops. But something happens after I am asleep and my beautiful, innocent needles become possessed of evil spirits that make them leap from the safety of their projects and go exploring. I often find them under furniture or in the middle of the hallway. I suspect nargles. Or possibly the cats. Rachel.am.laughlin@gmail.com

  187. My favorites are always in UFOs that stay UF while I start the newest shiny project. Except when the cat has used them as a toy, and they've found their way under the couch/desk/piano/entertainment center.

  188. I keep them in various places, but they hide in (temporarily, I swear!) abandoned projects and project bags.

    ReplyDelete
  189. I am forever fishing them out from the gap on top of my coffee table that's *just* big enough to swallow sock needles whole.

    ReplyDelete
  190. I find them under the bed. My dog steels them out of the knitting basket and hides them.

  191. At the bottom of my knitting bag. I have to dump everything out of my bag before it would show its face.
