freeform patchwork knitting needle case
Just a quick post to share the needle case I put together last week. In typical fashion, I mulled it over in my head and then basically put it together on the fly, using some leftover freeform patchwork pieces and Maze & Vale scraps. I'm 90% happy with how it turned out, the inside especially is pretty perfect with it's zipper pocket for stitch markers, cable keys and other small bits, snap pocket for smaller cables and zipper pocket for larger cables. I'm considering putting a pattern together for this since it was impossible to find one that was just right when I searched the past few weeks. I'd love to make another with the tweaks I learned from this one but, you know, I'm kind of famous for too many ideas, too little time so we'll see. In the meantime, this case will serve me very well, especially as I'm off for a family holiday in Bali tomorrow and will be packing it along with yarn for a couple of small projects. I've sadly abandoned my first sweater as it became obvious that I was not going to have enough yarn to finish it off but even starting it was an excellent learning process so I am not deterred in the slightest. Onward!
