I bought this not for...
, April 11, 2012
I bought this not for pens/pencils, but for needlework tools, including those
for embroidery, crochet, knitting, and even a bone folder for origami. It holds
a staggering array of crochet hooks (but not knitting needles), measuring
devices, scissors, stitch markers, gauges, pom-pom makers, stitch holders, cable
needles (used to temporarily shift some stitches out of the way while making the
part where the cables cross), row counters, chibi full of yarn needles, and so
much more, in three different zippered compartments, two of which have pockets
for further organization. Nicely padded, this is an incredible, versatile piece.
I normally prefer my needlework tool holders to be handmade (by me, if possible)
and very ornamental. However, this piece is simply too well designed. I never
have to stop and swith out my essentials, depending upon what I am doing. I am
seriously thinking of buying a second one for use with other tools. It is very
well designed, and from a practical point of view, rises head and shoulders
above the fancy leather ones.
