Needle roll

A few people in one of my groups were asked to try and design/make a needle roll just for double pointed needles. One person specifically wanted then for the short 5-6 inch versions.

Here is my first attempt.


Krystalclear2006, is my guinea pig. She chose colors I found these fabrics that seemed to fit her colors. It took a lot less than I expected. The finished product is about 7 inches in height, and 18 inches width. There are 12 pockets ranging in size from 1 inch to 2 inches.

I am only marginally pleased with this effort. I am going to try and make it again, tweaking a couple things. My mom also bought me a couple McCall's patterns that I am going to look at to see if I can get any inspiration.

some finished projects among chaos

I started these mitts on the drive, and finished them last week.

I love this pattern!

I also started this on the drive from California, and ran out of yarn, or would have finished it. I just finished it last week, after finding the right yarn.

Madeline has cut her hair since this picture.

I am now working on a Clapotis, and I need to get a few more stockings going.

Knitting saved my sanity

I took a few projects with me on my move from California to Utah. I didn't get to them all, but am glad I had something to keep my mind off the road. Yay knitting!
