I have a little knitting project on the go, (some slippers with pompoms on the toes) but I am a woefully slow knitter, and my 'storage place' for my knitting happens to be under the couch. Each time I go to retrieve my needles, there's something tangled or some missing stitches ... you know how it goes. I finally got around to making a little case for my knitting, and I made another for tomorrow's shop update too. I used vintage fabric (interfaced for sturdiness) and long metal vintage zippers, to complete the old-fashioned feel and ensure they're long enough for the knitting needles.
To make my case, I used some fabric from my most-favourite-ever skirt that has finally reached the end of its working life, and probably did long before I stopped wearing it. It was black velveteen with coloured flowers and big pockets on the front- a strangely pleasing garment that I bought secondhand years ago and my family probably longed for me to return to the opshop. It brings me some comfort though to see that fabric living in on the form of a knitting case.
Enjoy your Tuesday! See you again tomorrow.
