Knitting Needle Roll

In the contest where we decide who is the biggest procrastinator, I win.

I'm supposed to be studying for my last exam today, but awoke this morning thinking "needle roll!" Two hours this morning were spent on this creation, intended to handle those monster 14" straight needles and supplement the wonderful DPN case C. bought me for Christmas.

It's fairly shoddily constructed, but will serve its purpose. The fabrics are corduroy (outside layer), stiff cotton/polyester blend (middle layer), and vintage damask (?) (bottom / innermost layer). At some later date I can describe how it was done, though again, the design has real flaws and you'd probably be better off using someone else's pattern (there's one in Stitch 'n' Bitch).

Here's a view of the needle roll in its full, open glory:

I desperately need to make a needle roll, too, but keep putting it off. One of these days I'll head over to the fabric store, though...

Your's looks great!

Oh, I really like your roll! I'm a big procrastinator too. Best of luck on your final exam. :)

Hey, I only have one exam, but could I get it done early? No! I've got to knit gifts for everyone I know.

Berry berry nice! My mom's pal made a gorgeous case for me. I will post pics on my site soon. She made pockets in the middle for circs!

I love it! My first fun goal for myself once school is out (and exams are graded :( ) is to make myself a project bag and needle roll. Seriously, yours is cute, and I can't tell from here what the design flaws are!!!!

Procrastinator you might be Jess but at least when you procrastinate you produce something fabulous. I produce guilt :-)

Your roll looks fab! I just wanted to share that I made one with an old cloth placemat and some used wide ribbons(from Christmas) for the pockets. It's a great way to recycle....
