Mobile Knitting & No Face
I finished a new project this past Saturday. Back on January 18th, my daughter mistook my Yakko Finger Puppet for No Face. I thought that was a brilliant idea and it was also very simple! It’s still wonky and I want to fix it a bit before making a pattern, but I’m pleased with it.
In the meantime, I also finished another Totoro but I’ll post that later. I don’t think you guys really care when I finish another one, so I will just update my Ravelry Projects and spare you the details.
Today was a day for knitting. I mean, time dedicated to the knitting hobby, but not exactly towards knitting itself. First, I cleaned my shelves so that I have some place to put all the DPNs and the yarn. I don’t have a lot of yarn, but I do have enough that I can’t just leave it strewn about the house!
I’ve also been pondering how to transport my knitting. I had that purple pencil case, but it wasn’t cutting it because my DPNs are so small. And I just kept it in my jacket pocket but then what if I take my jacket off? Do I carry around the pencil case?
I need a pocket protector for knitters! Imagine how beat up I could get in highschool for that!!
Heck, do they even sell pocket protectors anymore?
Anyway, I found an old camera case. And when I say old, I meant that it was still being used as a camera case but not any more. I’ve re-purposed it! It is now my knitting case. It’s not perfect, but it’s small and compact, I can fit a bit of yarn in it, and it has one of those clippy thingies that mountain climbers use so I can attach it to my belt loopy thing.
I don’t know the technical term for ANYTHING tonight. Good grief.
Since I don’t have anything to hold the needles, I had that salt shaker thingy that I found when cleaning up my computer desk. I was almost going to toss it and then I realized my needles fit in the holes at the top and I can put things inside of it, like my stitch holder! It fits inside my knitting case. Now I just open up the case and the needles are easily accessible and not easily lost in the big black case of darkness! Huzzah!
I tried it today when I went for dinner at a friends house. They had comfy couches that I can knit comfortably in. That is all sorts of awesome.
