knit and roll

I finished my friends birthday present last weekend (a week or two early) I have to say I'm quite chuffed with it. Because I'd made the crochet hook version a few weeks ago the second roll was less fiddly and more enjoyable. I even added some buttons to this one to give it a vintage look. I did make the pocket a bit shorter than the pattern suggested and the overall size bigger to accomodate different needle lenghts. I plan to make one for mothers day for my mum with a couple of pairs of needles.

I'm collecting vintage Laura Ashley at the moment to make a couple more cushions for my sofa or maybe attempt my first quilt. The first two cushions have had a lot of wear over the past couple of months but haven't come apart yet (which is good news!) for a while Moss kept taking one off the sofa but thankfully he's grown out of that phase!

So here are a couple of photos of the knitting needle wrap/roll for my friends birthday ..... I don't think she reads my blog!
