What was your inspiration?
I do a fair amount of traveling and take my knitting/crocheting everywhere I go. If you're like me you probably have something like this in your bag. It has all the essentials for the knitter or hooker on the go!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Scissors, stitch holder, cable needle, safety pins, crochet hook, sticky notes and pen, tape measure, my business cards from Moo.com . I love these cards, by the way. They have my contact info on one side and a picture of a finished product on the other!
Also in the tin, extra reading glasses, stitch markers, ruler, row counter, bread bags ties (for intarsia...they work like bobbins), a mini tin to hold sewing/tapestry needles and the smaller items. Oh, and hair barrettes to hold the tail on a ball of yarn! Did I mention everything?
It all packs up nicely in this tin I found at a thrift store! I'm going to make some of these for a couple fellow knitters/crocheters this Christmas! One can never have enough knitting/crocheting goodies.
