I made this knitting needle case last week:







I am not entirely happy with it. I like the way that it looks, but I found the fabric difficult to work with, and I didn't decide to do the ribbon edging until I had already sewn the seams, and so the edges are bulky and not as nice as I would like.

So...anyone want a slightly wonky needlecase?

If I used straights, I'd snag it, I was molesting it the other night when I was there with Melissa.

The fabric is FABULOUS!

Thanks. I like the fabric, I am just not 100% thrilled with the finished product.

Is there any reason it couldn't also be used for crochet hooks? 'Cause I think it's purdy! :)

It certainly could be used for crochet hooks, though it is about 12 or 14 inches tall, so they might get lost in the back layer of pockets. :(

Well, I have a couple of longer hooks that don't fit into the current hook case I have, so this might work for me. If you don't find anyone else who desperately needs a needle roll, I'll take it!

Hmm...it could also hold paintbrushes, I bet....

I will consider it yours. It probably could hold paintbrushes. No reason why it can't multi-task.
