Click Case


I'm a big 'getting around to' type person.  Sometimes it takes me a very long time to Get Around To doing the things I want to do but I always intend to do them....at some point....in the future....not now.....but one day.  You know what I mean.

Well, this is a Get Around To type project that I've had on my mental to-do lists for a long time and finally, I have managed to GAT making it.  It's a case for the Addi Click Interchangeable Needles, which I love and adore so, so much.  They are absolutely my favourite thing to use and I try to knit everything on them if I possibly can.  The only thing is the case that comes with them is a huge, unattractive, black, dull, lump of a box.



Which keeps them safe and tidy, I will grant it that but is not, in no way, pretty and I think things really should be pretty if they can.  Plus in this instance, there was no reason why it should be so huge.  Not very portable for the travelling knitter.  So, I decided the situation should be remedied at once and created this...



Nice and compact...



Pretty....






Very small and portable.

I've very happy that my Clicks now have somewhere cozy and cute to live and will be so much easy to carry around and use!

The future's so bright...

Let me show you what what I have been working on ever since I saw the fantastic Attic24 blog that I mentioned in my last post...



They really brighten up my little garden room ready for Spring don't they?  Hopefully I shall be sitting in there soon.

I've also made this little chap...



He's going to live in my bedroom, underneath another little birdie picture so they can keep each other company.  I'll take a picture of him in place to show you, if we ever get another bright day in this damp and dreary country.

This is why I have to make all of these colourful things you see.  To keep my spirits up during all the grey horrible weather we have.

And finally, as a little homage to the coming Spring and to act as an offering to the weather gods to please give us nice Spring weather, I've also made this cute wreath.



This one I think will live in my 'not yet quite ready' craft room which I'm in the process of creating at the moment.  I'm collecting some pictures so I can show you the transformation.  It's so exciting!
