    I made this for me sister who has recently taken up knitting. It is a bag to hold her needles in. She thought I had bought it at a store. She said I have gotten really good at what I do. The pic's are not real good cause i took then with my phone.

    Very nice. Did you have a pattern or just came up with the idea yourself? I have a friend who knits and would probably like something like this. She has all her needles stuck in a glass jar.

    Thank you!
    I took the idea after seeing a similar one online but I can't remember where. The one I saw had ribbon that wrapped around it and tied. I used 2 FQ's to make this.

    Now she wants a bag to carry all her knitting items in which means I have to find more of this fabric.

    How many pairs of needles can your sister place in the bag you made her?

    This is such a creative idea! Can you do a tute? I can see it's not difficult, but the string is on the side and the button is in the middle of fabric.

    There is 8 slots in this. If you make it wider then you can add more.

    It needs some modification with the button and the rubber band. I wanted them higher up but didn't have time to work on it like I wanted too. I will think about a tut but it would have to wait til after the 1st.

    Thanks, I can wait. My DD loves to knit. Her birthday is in February, so I know she will love it.

    A very good idea. Mine are in a tin and this would help keep them from rusting with our humidity. Thanks for sharing.

    OOOOH I need to make myself one of these, except I'd need about 200 slots. Maybe I'll make one for each size needle. that would be a good way to keep them organized.
