So I have been on the lookout for a circular needle holder for quite some time now. I've seen the kind where you can hang them, but I don't have the space for that. Then I noticed at Loopy, in one of their newsletters, that they'd just gotten a shipment in of Namaste Circular Needle Holders, so I headed down with a gift certificate in hand (that I got for my birthday from Sarah and Bryan) and nabbed one up! And, I couldn't be more excited.
I'd like to back-track for just a minute and apologize for the lack of posts lately. We've been soooo busy I don't even know where the time has gone. School is out, we're playing hard and we've had a LOT of company and we are about to have some more and then head West on vacation to the Washington and Oregon coast on Monday. I've got my knitting packed and I plan to knit right on the beach! Here is a little snip of what we've been up to these days.
Okay now back to the Namaste Needle Holder.
Here it is closed, at first I thought it looked too much like a briefcase and that didn't seem very fun to me, but then I realized it was just a tool and every tool doesn't have to be cute - but it is a perk!
I can put a whole lot of needles in here and there are little tabs so you can label them yourself. They came in a couple of different shades - I chose indigo. I have some 29" circulars in here but mostly 16" since I'm a little bit 'hat obsessed'.
So - long story short - I love my new needle holder and it is small enough to fit right in my knitting bag or tote and I don't have to worry about finding a spot to hang it! There will probably come a day when I need more than one circular needle holder - then I'll get a cute one!
Oh and here are some shots of my completed baby hat - my cute model is holding it on his 'baby head sized' fist.
