A Glady to Welcome Spring?

Ever since I got my Knitpicks Harmony Interchangeables Set I've been thinking of a case to keep them in. Frankly, I think the zippered bag they come in is pretty - eh - well, let's say less than appealing...

So last night I pulled some fabric (spring-time stuff, no?) and started playing around ... after several fits and starts, this is what I devloped:

A tri-fold case with ribbon & button closure. (approx. 8x5.5x2 inches folded)

With enough graduated needles slots for all the tips in the set, and a couple of extras, in the event you want to add the larger sizes KP sells separately. And then behind that, 3 cable/accessory pockets. At the "top" of the case, another set of 3 cable pockets. All those should give you storage space for end caps, extra cables, needle sizers, even the odd fixed circ, too...just about anything you could need to keep with your interchangeables.

So once I had the basic set down, I made myself one...

Of course, you should probably have figured I'd use a cat print?

The case folds in half, top to bottom, before you tri-fold it to close...

And all the pockets are made of flannel to protect the lovely pointy needle tips! (you can click on any of these photos to embiggen)

I'd love your feedback on this...and let me know if you'd like one for your very own interchangeables?

The Glady should be suitable for any interchangeables set - Denise, Boyes or bamboos... and the case will fit nicely into the pocket of your Mavis, Sadie, Grand Mera, or Knitnana bag! I'd be happy to coordinate the fabrics for a set, too!

(((hugs)))

Beautiful cases -- I'm really tempted. :)

I like how you make one for yourself and then add it to your line. That's the way to do it!

I would so love that case for my Denises...the clunky box they come in is hard to tote...besides I just love everything you make! :)

Great idea and I'm not at all surprised you'd come up with it. Love the cat prints. :-)

I just found your lovely blog through the Ravelry forums as my second knitpicks set arrived today. I am not very keen on the pouch so was looking into what all the crafty people out there are doing.

Your solution is beautiful.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
