Me – I was dripping with teenage girls. DD finally got her birthday party – and I beat a hasty retreat to my sewing room.
I am finally attending the yarn tasteing at Knitted Peace after wanting to go to one for a while and not being able to – that and just the general disarray of my needles had been forming thoughts in my head for some time. I needed a way to keep track of my Options set so that I knew which points I had available.
There are times when I have something in mind and I sit down with random scrap fabric from my stash and just start cutting as sewing and ripping and experimenting until I get what I want. This time I hit the jackpot – I got what I wanted on the first try.
Looks pretty simple from the outside – but inside is where the goodness is…
The pockets around the outer edges hold 16 sets of needle tips! (More if I double small sizes in pockets 🙂 Inside is enough room for all the other knit accessories I like to have handy – so finally I have a small accessory bag I can just throw in my knitting bag and run with. Actual size is 8″ x 5.5″ x 2″.
This one is truly providence as I expected to go through at least a couple of iterations before I got what I wanted. I didn’t even have a zipper on hand, and ended up using the zipper from one of those plastic bags sheets come in. (reason I save so much worthless crap – someday I might need it – and I DID 🙂 So my zipper pull says “imex vinylpackaging” LOL.
Perhaps there is something to be said for letting ideas permeate for some time – I am truly happy this worked the first time, but if things keep working the first time, I may never get to my “good” fabric 🙂
