So here's a funny old upcycling project I made years ago... and just discovered while rummaging through our garage on the weekend.
Here's what you could get if you crossed Robin Hood with a supply of yarn/wool...
a knitting quiver.
So how would you make me quiver you ask?
Well, I had a cardboard tube with a slip-on-lid from an old puzzle.
You could use a shipping tube from a postal outlet... or hard plastic tube from an arts supply store (more money though).
I wrapped it in fabric and hot glued it secure. I also tied and glued on a strap of knitted cording.
Having a hard tube helps keep your knitting needles from impaling you or the poor sucker beside you.
Granted, it's not a very big storage space (so you can't keep your afghan stuffed into it). It's good for the kind of projects I used to do when I was a knitting poser...you know, like half-finished wrist-warmers, cup cozies. etc.
So there you have it... may your quiver be all a shiver with creative upcycling delight!
