Knit, Purl and Roll
Many quilters are also knitters. And if you aren't, you probably know someone who is. Knit, Purl, and Roll is a project you can make for yourself or give as a gift. Long, double-point and circular needles of all sizes can be safely stored in a compact format along with accessories such as stitch markers and darning needles. Anne will also give you suggestions for customizing your project.
