FO - Needle Case!
I recently bought the KPO and love them but I do agree with the one complaint I often hear about them - the case just isn't very good. Well I couldn't let my needles sit idly by while this problem persisted so I ran out and bought some Sugar 'n Cream Cotton and whipped up this case!





The whole thing was done with two balls of Sugar 'n Cream on size 7 needles using the double knitting technique (that Amy explains here). I think this technique is a lot of fun and I took advantage of the fact that swapping colors from front to back creates a wall. This is how I created all the pockets and just bound-off the front color at the top of the pockets to create openings. Of course I love icord too so I added some of that for ties and for a convenient loop to stick my needles in that tucks into the upper left pocket.

Thanks for looking!

That is really cute. Is there any pattern? It's one of those things where I want to just say "Would you make me one too?" But asking for a pattern seems better.
