So here's the little tea cosy as mentioned in the last post, and here's today's project which I am SO pleased with! A needle case. I've wanted one for ages, but it was just a matter of getting desperate enough to spend a couple of hours making one. It was motivated by needing a certain size double ended needles, not having them, going shopping for them, not finding them, and then unearthing a set (which had to be put through the gauge to find out what size they were) which made me very pleased I hadn't invested in another set. So it was obviously time to organise my gear!
The top of the fabric folds over the tops of the needles to keep them in place before rolling, but opens out flat for ease of use. And all my needles SORTED! Such a joy! I'm a bit of a pedant at heart, but have done a good job of working on letting go of the unnecessary stuff, sometimes to my own frustration!
