When browsing for patterns for something or other, I came across this lovely idea for an earring holder.
This frame has been hanging in the bedroom for months with plastic cross stitch grid to hold my earrings.
I was waiting for a sunny day to be able to take a clear picture of it in the room upstairs, but decided to just take the photo anyway. :)
For our picture-frame-earing-rack I scrounged a hunk of holey fabric (looks like the kind of fabric that bags for beach toys are often made of.) A much better idea than a stiff plastic grid, but it's got nothing on your knitting :)
