For Christmas, I made two gifts for knitters. The first was for my aunt. She liked my sister’s knitting needles roll-up. A while ago she had mentioned that she would love if I could make one for her. I made one based on my tutorial with some modifications.
I used a printed corduroy for the exterior. This fabric was given to me by aunt. So, I new she would like it. Because of that fabric choice, I didn’t make the hexagon appliqués shown in the tutorial.
The second knitter’s gift was for my sister. She already had a roll-up to store her needles, but she asked me if I could do a case for carrying around her knitting notions. Something similar to what I had done for sewing notions here. She asked after she saw this quilting practice sandwich. She loved the texture and wanted me to use it for her case.
I had to change my plans this was way to small. She did love the mix of linen with a colored print for the binding though. She also mentioned that she would prefer a zipped case. Based on all she had mentioned, I decided to do something similar two those two organizers: here and here. And here is what she received on Christmas day.
In my Christmas gift sewing, my sister’s zipped case was definitely the project that I’m the most satisfied with. I hope that both her and my aunt will be happy knitters!
