I recently saw a post from Jillian at Always stitching who had made a roll for her knitting needles. While my collection is a bit eclectic and much of it is made up from various hand me downs; mostly from my grandmother, I thjought it was a great idea. The idea sat in the back of my head until earlier in the week when I found some material at work for 50%off that I thought would be perfect. I couldn't let the idea go so hunted around for somehting for the outside and then last night, with nothing better to do, off I went. So here it is; it isn't as gorgous as Jillians, who used the most lovely material, but it will do.
On the subject of knitting needles, i must point out the bamboo ones over towards the right; these are new; I bought them on Monday (no, not much of my pay came home that day :D ). I used them on my days off during the week to make a scarf (which I promise to show you in a day or two) and they are wonderful. I really liked using them and I know why they are so popular. My goal is to replace many of these needles over the coming weeks, with bamboo ones. They really are lovely.
So a big thankyou to Jillian for her inspiration, and the idea. I love that we have the internet where we can all share ideas and inspirations; I do thank all of the talented people out there in cyberworld who are generous enough to share things with everyone else.
