Everest knitting needle roll

My family and I have been loving the summer weather. It means we’ve been outside a lot, biking, playing with friends and hitting the local splash pads. As much as I love doing all that with hubby and our boys, it really eats into my crafting mojo. I’ve been working on a baby quilt here and there, a total wadder jacket for myself (good pattern, BAD fabric choice), and some other odds and ends, but nothing to show yet. However, I was rooting around in my sewing room last night (boy, does it need a major clean up!), and found this project that I never posted about earlier in the year: a slightly adapted version of the ‘Everest’ knitting needle roll from luvinthemommyhood.

Don’t let the cutesy rolled up photo fool you, this baby is aptly named. It’s HUGE!

There are three large sectioned pockets with flaps to hold needles of various sizes, including sets of DPNS and circulars. There are also pockets to hold a pattern, scissors, guage, etc.

I only put in a few needles for demonstration purposes, but this roll will hold a lot of needles.
The original design called for a button closure and a handle, but the friend who requested this roll gave me some old curtains to use as fabric and it just wasn’t working with the handle, so I removed it and added a tie closure.
