Where did all the flowers go?

I think I must have hit the winter doldrums, because I am not motivated to do anything really.

I got frustrated with the shawl I was making, I had to rip out a whole repeat, and have been kicking myself about not putting a lifeline in.

I want to make some gifts for children's birthdays coming up, but they are all off track so I don't know how I will keep it secret.

I did however with the help of JenDeJour figure out how to make a cute little needle roll for options needles. I am working on a design for circular needles next.

Here is the official debut of the Psst Options Roll:

It is about 6 inches by 16 inches open, and 6 inches tall by 5 inches wide folded. I intend to make the ribbon a little longer on future versions, but overall I am happy with this new version of my needle rolls.

I have bee asked to open an etsy, but I really don't want to, I am trying to figure out a different way to make them available, there is always email and paypal. :)

I love your Needle Roll! And I'm positive they would sell.

The only thing I would suggest is offering the option of having 13 slots for the needle tips, since KP offers (will offer) them in 13 sizes and someone might want to buy the extra sizes (not normally offered in the set).

oooh, that is so pretty, and cool.
I can see it could easily be adapted for crochet hooks :)
