Knitting doo-dad

Anybody who knows me is aware that I am a person that reads books about organization like some people read steamy novels.  Of course, having said that, there is nothing to prove that I myself am the least bit organized!

Anyway, I stumbled across a cute little knitted pattern for making a little 'thingie' to hold the things that I normally toss on the table beside me when I'm knitting - things like my crochet hook for dropped stitches (which, btw, I NEVER use...lol) and my sewing up needle.

I made two...



Aren't they cute?
The free pattern can be found HERE. 
The only thing I did differently from the original pattern
was to add a heavy-duty washer on the bottom for
weight, which I then covered with felt.

  2. I love organization books and articles and directions and diagrams, too! I'm pretty organized, but reading about it is easier.

  3. Very cute! I think I'll need 5 for my tatting needles, 5 for my fave knitting needles. 1 for a bodkin, two for sewing needles, 1 for my pen, a square one for my fancy ruler, and...oh, wait! I've run out of table room! Where will I put my tea mug? aacckk! lol

  4. How cute and useful! Could also be a non fattening cupcake-look-a-likey, if you squint at them!!
    Brill idea to base them with a washer mind you : )

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
