Knitting box (Yarn holder and gauge)

I put this together as a last-minute Christmas gift for my sister. It has a ruler and needle gauge on one side, and then the swirl is to help hold yarn in place while you leave the yarn ball inside the box.

Base measures about 5x7. Proofgrade walnut ply

Very nice! Haven’t knitted in about 39 years. (My son is turning 39). Although I enjoyed the projects I did, never picked up the needles again.

Too many crafts to try! I’m sure your sister loved it!

Oh yeah! My roommate is a knitter and I’m always looking for things I can do for her on the forge. That’s fabulous

That is a beautiful box! Somehow I wish my brain did not default to this scene anytime I hear the word knitting. But now yours can too. :slight_smile:

Love practical designs! I love the entirely artistic ones too, who am I kidding? But this is great and you just made me think about my Mom and so I need a minute and thank you.

Wonderful idea!! My sister knits, and her birthday is coming up soon… though wonder if it would make her cats consider it a great toy trying to snag the yarn as it leaves the box?
