A Promise is A Promise!

So even if I've got a bad case of cauliflower ear from too much telephone calling tonight (Red Hats, an old friend - Oy!)...Without further ado?

Meet Violette:
You saw the outside last night...but what I didn't mention was that Violette is a needle case...
Inside the front cover is a covered section of five flannel "pocklets" for 6-7 inch dpns, or perhaps a crochet hook, or a sewing gauge, if you use one...
and inside the back cover is a full-sized flannel pocket for a notepad or instructions (folded, of course) for your latest project...

The pages inside...
well, there are 6.
And each one?
has two pockets facing towards the "binding" so if they slide? They won't go very far...

Everything is stitched fabrics. No hard cardboard to get wet and bend. It's not a "soft" binder, as it's stiffened inside (pockets, pages, and binder) and reinforced with just the right amount of interlinings. The fabrics are all coordinated. This isn't a plastic binder that's been covered with fabric. It's ALL fabric.

The size is approximately 8.5 inches tall by 6 inches wide and 2-2.5 inches deep...variations occur because of the nature of a handmade item.

Violette is an investment in protecting your needles. She will fit in your larger knitting bags (Mavis, Knitnana, Grand Mera, or Sadie) but isn't appropriate for Posy or Posy Too. She'd also make a nice statement on your bookshelf in the knitting room for your quality knitting tool storage solution. Because of the detail of work involved, Violette will only be available as a custom item from Nana Sadie Rose.

I've had the name Violette, and the purpose (circular knitting storage) in mind for months. I only just learned that a good friend's Nana's name was - yes - Violette. How appropriate is that?

Let me know what you think of my newest creation, okay?

It looks nice, you did a good job. It's not tall enough for my 14 inch straits, and I don't use DPN's but circulars instead, and I have great circular storage. But I'm sure others will love it.

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.
