Needle Cases 14 January 2008

Needle Cases :: Nikon D70

I have finally managed to build a set of needle cases to hold my new interchangeable needle set. I also built one in the same style to hold my double pointed needles, and another bag for the incidental knitting items. It only took me 3 weeks and about 10 different versions (with varying degrees of success). Having to relearn how to use a sewing machine didn't make the task any easier. I'm fairly happy with the result, but I have a feeling I'll need to make a new pair since the internal fabric is a little thin (Another View). The entire set of cases could use some interfacing to help give them a little bit of backbone. This will also give me the opportunity to find something manly, like pink camouflage with little bunnies or some such.

Karen's latest pair of socks has been ripped out; the first one didn't fit correctly. So much for trying a new pattern, new yarn, and a different size needles. After I ripped the sock out, I picked up the Lace Stole that has been stalled on the end table for the last couple of months.
