Knitting Needle Pouch is Done!

I have finished making my knitting needle pouch – from Simplicity pattern 1079. It’s got loads of mistakes, a big one being the outer fabric pattern is the wrong way up – but it’s only for me and I don’t mind it so it didn’t seem worth the effort to cut out more fabric.

This pattern was a lot of firsts for me – first time sewing on elastic, I decided to handsew them. And also making bias binding for the first time ever. I managed to buy and then lose the double-fold bias tape maker. I bought another one but it was only single fold. I actually enjoyed the whole process of making it. Not sure if it’s better or more economical than just buying bias tape but I think it’s a good skill to have. Here are some snaps of my process:

Oops! Don’t sew right side to wrong side! LOL

So relieved that I finally have storage for my knitting needles, especially as a few days before I finished this, I managed to step on and break a pair!

Here is my Instagram post of my FFO, knitting needle pouch. I’d love a “like” and a “follow”!

I found the YouTube tutorials by “MADE Everyday” and “Sewway” extremely helpful.

As for the socks, I have completed my first sock and am just about to start the heel of the second 🙂

Here is my current NORO Knit-Along square:

I am really enjoying this and I do so love this yarn but I wish it would stop breaking! Not sure if it’s me or if this yarn is unsuitable for colour work. Some of the yarns haven’t broken so it might just be due to how loosely one particular batch was spun.

Anyway, that’s all from me for now. Thanks for reading and I’ll speak to you soon!
