My creative space - Kootoyoo game contribution

This is my first ever creative space and I'm a bit nervous to be in the company of such great crafters. But I feel like I've been such a busy bee working on little projects and it's nice to share the buzzy feeling :)


This past week I've been working on a swop with my creative friend Amanda. I've made her an 'interchangeable needle purse' for her knitting gear. I didn't know about these new types of needles until she showed me - they look fantastic! (I also have been told there are two very loyal camps of followers for knitting so apologies if this isn't your fave approach...)



It has a special covered folded pocket in the middle with special places for each needle type and size, and two zip purses on each side, one for your markers etc, and one for the needle cable. It's padded to keep it all safe and contained.
























My gift in return from her was a gorgeous knobbly-knit grey beanie/hat to wear out in the cold mornings on the way to kindy. I always make my girls wear hats, so I wanted to set an example. Based on this blue pattern pictured, I think she did an awesome job - I'm really jealous that I don't know how to knit (yet). Think interchangeable needles are on my Xmas list!

Thanks for all contributing to this game - I love logging each Thursday morning to be inspired.

  8. The needle holder looks great. I've knit that hat a while ago and love it. I'm still trying to find the right button for it though.

  10. Wow that needle purse is awesome. You should make some to sell if they aren't too time consuming. They'd be a big hit I'm sure. Love the hat too, gorgeous!
