I just started knitting a few months ago and I have been obsessed.

Finally, I realized I needed something to organize my stuff.  THEN, I decided that my knitting guru (MENTOR) should get a nice gift from me.  I'm not an amazing knitter yet, but I am pretty dern good at sewing. 

Of course, my guru probably has everything she needs to organize her stuff.  I was hesitant...but I doubt she has a handmade needle roll that is PERSONALIZED!

So yesterday, I finally pulled myself away from my needles (I made a sock this week!!) and my yarn and dust off the sewing machine:

The Knitting Needle Roll (the only thing left is the anxiety of whether she'll like it):

If she doesn't like it, I'll invoke my Hebrew name, and you can send it to me!

Or you could just give it to me, 'cause my name is Leah and I love it!

That looks great.  I think any knitter would be pleased to get such a lovely and thoughtful gift.  Smiley

Thanks, y'all!  This didn't take long at all to make.  The embroidery took longer than the actual project.  Smiley

The sock?  LOL - It was Christmas day when I finished it and I didn't have batteries in my camera (took them out for a batteries-not-included toy).  I took a pic on my cell phone...I'll see if I can get it off the phone and post it.

It's amazing!  I'm positive she'll love it!  I love everything about it!  Did you do the embroidery by hand or  machine?  I'm thinking you could custom make those and sell them!  I would want one or two or three!

The embroidery is machine embroidery.  I had a LOT of trouble getting my softward in sync with my machine - but once I figured it all out (it wasn't the software OR the machine  Roll Eyes), it all went very smoothly.

Here is my very first sock ever...

I was using practice yarn and when I realized I was going to run out, I pulled out the same yarn in a different color and started shaping the toe...then I ran out of IT and found some acrylic yarn in approximate same size and finished it all off.  It's not long enough for a foot..but I at least made it through all the stitches!!!

that roll is gorgeous! And the sock! Too cute! It looks like a pencil with those colors!
