My contribution to this book was the Knitwit Needle Clutch, hanging out on page 40. This project is the perfect combination of both of my stitchy loves, sewing and knitting.

This clutch stays in my current knitting project bag and I have taken it with me pretty much everywhere over the past 2 years since I first designed it. It really is handy! Here is my own personal Knitwit Needle Clutch in Echino :) And my current sweater project that I hope to finish soon to enjoy for spring!
The inspiration for this design came from need. (ha ha! "Need" in the loosest sense....) I have one of those fabulous sets of interchangeable needles, and wanted to organize them in something a bit more stylish than the package they came with. Thus, the Knitwit Needle Clutch was born! Using some fun knit-themed linen I had been hoarding for who knows how long, I made a fun organizational pouch with clear vinyl pockets to allow you to place labels to customize to your personal needle and cable collection.
There is a flap to keep all of the needles from slipping out the side of then clutch when closed:
It all folds up into a fashionable, compact and functional carrying case, with room for needed notions and such as well in a zippered compartment on the back.
If you are of the "bi-craftual" orientation and happen to make a Knitwit Needle Clutch, be sure to email me with a photo or tag me on instagram, I would love to see it!
So many wonderful projects in this book. I hope you do enjoy it. Good luck in the giveaway!
