Addi Clicks...wrapped in love

Well, I thought I wasn't going to get much crafting done this weekend since we were going to be gone to Charleston shrimping, but in fact, I got quite a bit done. Friday night (after packing and getting everything ready of course) I managed to find time to finish my interchangeable knitting needle case for my treasured Addi Clicks.

I bought these knitting needles at Knit the last time I was there (which was unfortunately a looong time ago). They had ONE case left and it had my name all over it. I had to have them - I mean an addi for every occasion! Yes, please!

Problem being, I haven't used them (gasp!) b/c they didn't fit in my old knitting needle case so I never had them with me when I started projects - they always ended up on my old needles. Knowing we were going to be in the car this weekend gave me the kick in the butt I needed to go ahead and make a case to properly store these (and take them with me!!) I made this without a pattern and despite lessons learned (ie.. having to tear it apart two, okay three times) I am very happy with the results. Mostly the Lizzy House fabric makes me HAPPY (and its mixed with Michael Miller dots) - but I just LOVE it!

So sewing without a pattern, and making something crafty for my crafty stuff - what a way to start the weekend - AND there is more to come!!


  1. Can you tell me if you have a pattern or a reference to do this wonderfull case

    1. Annabelle - I don't have a pattern or reference. I'm sure I read about some others online and then did my best to replicate something similar to fit my addis. If you like I can send you some finished measurements and lessons learned though.
