Roll With It

A non-knitting FO this week (I know I could show you my sock, but as I have something else available, I thought I'd save the sock for when it has a mate!)


You may recognise the fabric as one I was sent in a swap some time ago. I hadn't found a use for it until I recently decided that it was about time I organised my knitting needles... So I made a needle roll *grins*


I'm still pretty rubbish with my sewing machine, and straight lines are apparently still beyond my capabilities *laughs* But having said that, I'm really pleased with it. My needles are now all neat and tidy, and I can find them without spending ages hunting through a drawer for the second of a pair ;)

  1. Very cute fabric. Every time you use your sewing machine you will get better. I'm still not great with curves, but straight lines - them I rock!

  3. I really like your needle bag. I don't have many straight needles but if I did...that's what I'd want.

  7. I love the bag :)

    Someday, I'll drag out some fabric I have sitting in a box and my sewing needles and thread and I'll hand sew a bag of similar greatness :)

    Maybe.

  8. That's awesome! Even now, I'm not great at sewing in straight lines, but there's something so satisfying about making something for yourself. It looks very organised :)

  10. You're much better with a sewing machine than I am---and I'm with Tink, the non-straight lines are clearly on purpose and a Statement. You won't convince me otherwise. ;)

  11. Hi-very nice needle holder. I use an old pottery pitcher that sits near my stash. It is 5:00am here in the United States, so I can say Happy Birthday. It is also my oldest daughter's b'day (23 years old). My youngest daughter (21) and I just booked a trip to the UK (1st visit ever)in April. Maybe we will meet up in a yarn shop! Ha ha. Again, thanks for the great blog and Happy Birthday. Terry

  12. Lovely! That fabric is adorable and your lines are far straighter than I've ever managed on a sewing machine!
