A Knitting Needle/Crochet Hook Roll for a Friend

I still don't know how to knit or crochet, but I have a friend who is incredibly talented at both. She has made some adorable gifts for my girls, like this hat with holes for pigtails! She also sent the great dress Allison is wearing. Awesome friend, eh?

She sews, too... and sewing for people who sew is very intimidating! So hopefully she'll be happy with her gift, and remember it's the thought that counts...

I made this based on a few different needle rolls I'd seen online, and changed a few things based on feedback from another friend who got an earlier version I made. I made space for needles, pockets for notepaper or circular needles, and shorter skinny slots for crochet hooks. It's all canvas, so it's sturdy, and it has ribbon to tie it all closed. And I practiced my satin stitch again to personalize it. I hope she likes it!

(Joyce, don't go watching the mail yet, I have a few other things to finish up before I send this off!)


  1. Oooh, what a neat gift idea! I love it!

  2. Awesome!!!!!!! I can't wait to see it.

  3. I think that it is very clever and useful item for the knitters out there.....I want one for crochet hooks!


Thanks so much for visiting!!!
