I have mentioned this before I have been working on a design for a pair of wristwrappers. I am almost done with that project and in the process I have started working on a second design for a wrist buddy. I am defining the wrist buddy as a cuff that I can use to hold my dpns (double pointed needles) and any other knitting notions that needs holding. I don't know about anyone else, but I always have my notions strung out all over my futon. This situation has caused many lost items and on occasionally a dpn poking me in unkind places.
My wristwrappers design produced these little cuffs. I picked up stitches on the back and then stuffed the cuff. This method was probably the hardest way to do anything, I have an idea on how to improve this design and make it simpler. So I am still working on this design, but I am pleased with the idea of the end product.
The wrist buddy gives me spots for dpns, stitch locks, stitch markers, stitch holders, tapestry needles, and with a safety pin a row counter. I felt really clever creating my little cuff, and when I look down at the cuff while knitting I know the joy Batman must feel every time he reaches for his utility belt. Check back I promise to post the pattern for my wrist buddy as soon as it is done.
