« on: October 07, 2005 07:47:58 PM »

I've been searching for a needle holder for all my double points for a looong time, but everything I saw was either not quite right, or too expensive. So I finally got off my butt and made my own. I found one I liked online, "studied" the picture, and voila!  The inside is black fabric so it might be hard to see all the pockets. I also left an opening for a ribbon tie but I put it on the wrong flap and didn't notice until everything was done. I'll probably just add a couple snaps instead. 

I've got an idea for a circular needle holder, similar to this one. If only I could find decent fabric locally. walmart and Joanns (my only local fabric shops) just aren't cutting it.

Here it is closed.

First fold, like a book.

Unfold like a book again, and here's the top flap to hold things in.

Lift flap and we have needles! All of my double points.

And here's  a close up so you can see both row of pockets.

And yes those are my feet in the picture. I had to stand on the chair to get the whole holder in the frame. Thanks for looking!

That's very cool!  I've been thinking about making something to hold my dpns and yours is perfect.  Great job!

If all else fails, hide.  It works for bunnies.

very neat i love how it looks like a big book....it will save space in your knitting bag instead of having a long rolled up thing like i made lol Smiley

I've been meaning to make my own too... My needles are all over my apartment in vases and other odd places...

I made a needle holder for inside my knitting bag.

I just sewed elastic onto the lining of the bag, just big enough for each size needle to fit snuggly in. I also added a pocket over top of the needle holder. I will post pictures of that, and a pattern for the entire bag, later on my website: http://stitch.kittytime.net/.
