I'm not a sewer and possess a sewing machine mainly to do repairs.
I am heartily sick of rifling through a couple of tins to find the DPNs I need for a project. So today I bit the bullet and attempted to make a roll-up which would contain all my DPNs in ordered pouches.
A simple task for a sewer but a massive brain twisting task for me. What's inside, what's outside, how to put it all together? OMG a nightmare! I tried to find a pattern online, but they were not quite what I needed, and if they were, they seemed very complex. There are some lovely knitted patterns online, and if I didn't feel the Christmas rush coming on, I would have taken my time and knitted one. In fact, I might even do that in the future.
I used iron-on labels to mark each pouch with the needle size. Being iron-on, if I change my mind about what goes in a pouch, I can simply make another label and iron it on over the previous one.
I can now tuck my DPNs away with my other needles and know they are readily available! Woo Hoo!

That’s very nice,you did a great job. I have one also that my MIL made for me a long time ago but I need about 10 of them. I have an awful lot of DPNs. Every size in many lengths.
