So I'm very gung-ho for crochet at the moment and determined to improve my skills. Still working out of Cute and Easy Crochet, I made this crochet hook/ knitting needle roll. It's a rectangle of single crochet rows, and then a cream edging.
The linen lining and pocket are constructed on the sewing machine, then hand-stitched in place. I rummaged in my boxes for these velvet ribbon rosebuds made ages ago, and found some bright white twill tape for the ties. Conquered the bright-whiteness with a little dip in hot tea to take the edge off.
It's very pretty and I love having my hooks all in one place (they seem to be all size G, but whatever!). In the interest of full disclosure, however, I should say that they definitely slide out of this thing whenever it's not upright.
Next up, my fingerless gloves with a lacy edge!
