I spent snowy Boxing Day at my sewing machine, making a little something I've wanted to make for ages: the Circular Knitting Needle Holder from Stitch 'n Bitch. It was very satisfying to untangle the circs I'd been keeping in a small cardboard box, sort them by size, and slip them into the proper slots in my new holder (from 2.0mm at the top to 10.0mm at the bottom). It's currently holding 24 needles.
I didn't bother labelling each slot. I didn't want to cover up the pretty fabric, and it's not like I'm ever going to pull out a needle and starting knitting on it without double-checking its size anyway.
I used two cotton prints that I'd thrifted years ago. The instructions in the book call for Velcro to attach the straps at the top -- you have to undo them to get the thing on a hanger -- but I used buttons instead. I'm really into buttons these days, and I love picking through my little collection.
Today is brilliantly sunny, but there's still snow on the ground from the last few days of snow. This is what I wanted on the 25th! Oh well. Better late than never.
