Colour Co-ordination

I have a wonderful selection of knitting needles - mostly bamboos. 

The problem is the size that is printed on them wears off after a few uses and then you can't easily tell which size it is. 

Fortunately I have a handy little gadget that belonged to my grandmother that is great for determining the sizes. 

It isn't in metric but the old imperial sizes so it's a case of remembering the conversions. 

Today I decided to make life easier by colour co-ordinating the needles.  My lovely girls have many interesting shades of nail polish -

-so I used these to paint the tops of the needles. 

My favourite needles sizes, 3.75mm and 3.25mm are pink and yellow - so I should remember them.  I'll just have to make sure I don't forget what the other colours stand for. 

Now it's all very colourful and jolly.
