If you're going to knit...

Let me say (even before finishing the title sentence) that I took better pictures of this, but my card reader *eated* them. So, you are stuck with the poorly lit ones that the dogs took for me. Really!

So, if you are going to knit, you naturally need a tote to hold your stuff!



And while you're at it, a needle roll and a zippy pouch for all those pesky metal stick things and miscellaneous tools they sell you at the store.



What I am most proud of this project is that all the fabric was thrifted at the Goodwill. The flower/stripe outer fabric is from a twin size sheet, and the pink polka dot fabric, well, was a piece of fabric I found at the Goodwill (Did I already say that?)

So, now I need to go to the Goodwill again and see what other neat sheets and fabrics they might have, followed by a trip to the Hobby Lobby to look at yarn and knitting books.

I see a vicious cycle starting... yeah!

I love it, especially the knitting needle holder. I need one! How did you figure out how big to make the spaces for the needles? Email me please.

Aww Baby...I miss your company too! Soon, I promise. Just finish that pesky thesis and you'll be here!

These are awesome! Don't you love to find cool stuff at the goodwill. There is something so satisfying about it.....
