I'm not sure if this goes here but it has to do with knitting... Feel free to move if neeeded!

I recently got myself a set of bamboo dpns and a set of bamboo knitting needles. I decided I needed a better way to organize them other than just in a drawer where they just look messy. I bought a package of precut material from the store and went to town!



I had a hard time figuring out how wide to make the pockets. Originally I had different marks for each of the three pockets then realized that wouldn't work, so I use the biggest needles I had for a guide and made each spot about 1.2 inches wide. I love how it turned out!



Here is what it looks like rolled up...


It is huge. But it holds all of my knitting needles.. (so far!) There are 19 pockets for each row. It holds my dpns, and straights and there are pockets for my circular needles! Now I don't have to dig to find the right needles for anything!  Grin

C&C welcome!

Thanks! The colors make me really happy! And I had to work at those straight lines. lol I drew them out with a ruler and then stitched over them. There are a few spots where they are not so straight hahah but luckily when the needles are in the pockets you can't really tell!  Smiley
