Hand-made knitting needle organizer
I just made this knitting needle organizer for myself. I pretty much followed the design of other ones I've seen, but I added a feature I'm proud of: the back row is adapted to be able to hold long needles or short needles. That is: each slot in that row can hold either a tall pair of needles, or a short pair.
My trick for the back row was this: the fabric of the back row does not go all the way down to the bottom. It stops, two inches short of the bottom, and folds back up, behind itself. When you slide the knitting needles into the slot, you can either catch it in the fold, for the short needles, or angle it behind the fold, so it goes all the way to the bottom.
Other than that hidden trick in the back row, it's pretty much what-you-see-is-what-you-get. I'd give written instructions, but I think the pictures pretty much say it all! It wasn't that hard to make. The hardest part was sewing the bias edging in a fairly even way. The ruler in the pocket should give you an idea of its dimensions.

"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
