ACCESSORIES

The other day, this cute little 'cotton and steel' print came into the shop and right away I knew what I could make from it.  Being organized is not one of my strong points. I tend to thrive on chaos! Anyway, I can never find my knitting needles when I want them, so I decided to whip up a needle holder for myself. Years ago, I gave my mother one so I used hers as a pattern.  It's simple, but will do the job.



The little sheep. Seriously : )


There is room for 12 sets. If I can find that many matching pairs, I'll put them away...........


I've had this trim in my stash for a very long time. I thought it was just right for the ties.

Many of you have asked how plans are coming for the new yarn shop.  I am happy to say very well!
I have 3 big orders on the way and am working on a fourth.  It's exciting!


No website yet but I do have a Facebook page that I invite you to visit.  Knit2 Yarns

Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching !

Hi Carla! Your needle holder is beautiful! Those little sheeps are so sweet! We are all waiting here to see and hear more about the shop! Perhaps some sneaky peaks when you start to open the parchels and what happens inside the shop?!

Your needle holder is so pretty and of course the fabric is perfect for this project! Off to join your Facebook group.

Carla, your needle holder is very cute! I'll bet other knitters would find so too. Now if I could only find a pattern for my circulars .... any ideas?
Cotton and Steel looks good in any pattern!!! LOVE YOURS.

Carla said...

Jody M****** I hope you see this. How about a shawl? They are very nice to keep the chill off the shoulders and there are so many free patterns Out there. Happy knitting!

Cute and practical, that's a great combination :)

What a great idea for storing needles.
And lovely to see all the progress with your shop.

Love your needle rolls. And SO exciting about the shop!!!

Granny Maud's Girl said...

The sheep print is perfect for the needle roll. I cannot imagine better! Mine is just something ancient from Ikea - scraps from curtains I made and nowhere near as nice as sheep. :)

Archie the wonder dog said...

I have a needle roll which a friend made and I don't know how I managed without it! Love yours and the tape measure ties!

Jeannine said...

Carla, hope you see this - where can one find a pattern for the knitting needle holder like you made? I just love it. What a fun, quick to make, organized way to store one's knitting needles.

Kristen Rettig said...

Terribly exciting!!!

Look at you in front of your shop!!! EEK!!!

I thrive on chaos too... but lately I feel like the chaos has overtaken me. That, or the boys have.

The needle holder is ADORABLE! So sweet. What a great idea!
