I Made A Thing!

Dpn keeper 
I made a Double Pointed Needle Keeper!  I've been thinking about making one of these for a while, both to protect my needles in the project bag and to protect my project bag from my needles.  It worked up super quickly and would make a fun little gift for a knitting friend.

I used the tutorial I found here.  I made mine a little shorter because I usually use five inch DPN's for socks.  My main fabric is from Spoonflower (they've got a BOGO sale on Fat Quarters right now and a single Fat Quarter will give you several of these), and I used some batik scraps from my stash for the lining.  I had the KAM snaps already but this was the first time I've used them.  They were super easy to use and I like the way they look on the finished needle keeper.

Here's an action shot with the Rosebud footie in progress in it.  Footie socks are kind of a funny shape, but the needle keeper is still doing its job - keeping the needles tucked in and safe!

Have a great weekend!

Very pretty finished product. Question: Will those Kam snaps work on knitted fabric?
