A Needle Roll - Like a Jelly Roll, but without the jelly

This is my little sock needle roll! I've never made a needle roll before and except for an unfortunate incident involving tie placement, it was pretty easy. As you can see, it does roll (at least half of the purpose of a needle roll is that it rolls - otherwise it would be a needle thing which isn't near as handy for storing needles). It also opens and holds needles - the other half of the purpose of a needle roll. I will eventually get needles from size 0 to 3 put in here, but for now, you get the idea. This is to go in my sock knitting bag. My Sockapaloooza pal seems to use circulars for her sock knitting, since I don't see any double points on any of the socks on her blog. I won't make her a needle roll since circular needles don't need a roll. Circular needles need more of a wrangler to tame their twistyness (oooooh, mental image of cute cowboy dude holding circular needles - maybe I should look into circulars, hmmm). Anyway, I got the pieces cut out for my bag ( I barely had anything left from that shirt), I have the first part of the lining ready, and I'm ready to figure out pockets. For my Sockapaloooza Pal's bag, I got the outside cut out, I've got to add an outside pocket, then cut out the lining and figure out the pockets for the inside of her bag. I'm planning on figuring out pockets all at once, then I just sew them together! Maybe, if I work really hard, I can get these done today!

That is a really cool roll. Was it difficult to make? I'm considering making one too.

Hm, that makes me want to go and make me a needle roll, too! I like the colors you used.

I use circs and I can tell you from experience... they do NOT come with a cute cowboy to wrangle them LOL... if only that were true hahahaha.

Your needle roll looks gorgeous... I could even be persuaded to use a sewing machine to make one :) Is it a pattern you got somewhere or is it your own invention?

Very nice! I've been eyeing rolls @ etsy, wishing I had those mad skills :)
