One last project for 2011 ~
I’m here ~ and about 90% well finally. Christmas has been packed away neatly for another year, my HQ16 has been re-assembled, and yesterday I even did a bit of machine embroidery. I made labels for a hanging knitting needle caddy. Why?
Because despite my best efforts to be organized:
This is how my needles often look:
Yikes. I’ve been thinking about a hanging needle caddy for a while now, but I finally got down to business last night.
The front is for circular needles. I used the metric measurements for the labels, and included a space at the bottom for a needle gauge. I had to do a little unsewing on it this morning to ease in some shifted fabric, but otherwise it’s fine. I’m not a fan of spray baste but this might have been a good place to use some.
Today I’m working on the other side. Pockets this time, for DPNs, interchangeable tips, cables and notions (cable ends and size markers). A lot more fussy cutting and sewing to get the labels on the pockets ~ but lots of happy fabric to work with.
And when it’s done? Back to knitting and quilt planning for 2012. What’s your plan?
