With my husband home on his "Christmas Break" I've been able to sneak away in the mid-mornings and mid-afternoons for a little sewing here and there...today I got some good time in, and I ended up with this:
Can you guess what it is?
I've been eyeing up a few different ways to store my growing collection of circular needles, and I've always wanted to make a roll up needle holder so I came up with this today. It has twelve pockets with plenty of room to double up, and there's enough space to even store some straight needles and whatnot in it. It would be great for a trip, if you wanted to bring a bunch of your needles with you.
It would have to be a trip without kids though, if you really think you're going to get that much knitting done.
I used a light-weight interfacing on the back side of all the fabrics for durability and strength. I didn't think it would make too much of a difference on those cotton weights (Alexander Henry and Kona solids, plus vintage bed sheet) but the pack feels heavy like denim now, which is nice and durable, has some weight to it. I think I will make a few more, I have some ideas for extras that I might try to include - and I will make a tutorial to go along with it.
