Look what I made! I like to fool myself into believing that all I need to get organised is the right stuff. Plastic tubs. Things with dividers. Compartments. Pockets!
So I made myself a little knitting needle roll. Actually, I made two because I wanted to try making one to see if I could come up with a design that might be sell-worthy in the (soon to be) Etsy shop, and then I decided to make another as a birthday gift for a friend. They took a couple of evenings to make, in part because I was figuring out the design as I go.
I decided to use a fab thickish natural linen for the outside, and a funky retro styled fabric in greens and blacks that I bought as a remnant recently. It has 11 narrow pockets to hold a variety of needles, and I made the length of the pockets graduated from short to long to go from little sock needles to big like-knitting-with-a-pair-of-dildos chunky ones.
Do we like? I couldn't be happier with them if they bought me coffee and toast in bed, and then vacuumed. Oh yeah, and for the curved corners a cocktail glass turned out to be just the right diameter. THEY ARE SO USEFUL.
