Origami Needle Storage
I may have just come up with another gift idea for yarn-crafters! Someone sent me an Instagram post with this cool origami needle storage.
Origami Needle Storage – For Circular Cable Needles
Like many knitters ,over the years, I’ve accumulate quite a collection of circular cable needles. A friend sent me this Instagram video:
Before getting excited, the place making/selling these, is in Germany. And they don’t currently ship outside Germany.
Also, their case is made with “paper leather” (not sure if the German translation works here). I considered buying a few yards of this “fabric” and re-making my thick-paper version of it in my video. But then I did a more thorough consideration of it.
After successfully making one out of thick-ish brown paper, I’m not sure I’d use this case very much. It only holds 16 circular cable needles. And I have a LOT more than that. You can only put one needle in each wedge-section.
While I still think it’s a very cool idea, it’s not a practical idea for me.
With the cutting, folding and very bad sewing I did on this little project, I didn’t get much done on my current shawlette.
But, I have to say, this Urth Uneek colorway is absolutely GORGEOUS!
Such unexpected colors to be combining in a self-striping format. But the shawlette is going to be my favorite so far, I think.
