circle the bandwagons

Inspired by Bean and the crafty folks at, um, Craftster, I jumped on the knitting needle case bandwagon. Here's my version:
everything in its place
Hey, that picture's pretty tiny. Oops. Anyway, I used pinks and greens, including the green-and-white print that you see in the header. It's not a very big case, maybe 16 inches square. I don't have the biggest needle collection so at the moment it's enough. Here it is all rolled up:

I'm not sure exactly how the closure is supposed to work. I just wrapped a ribbon around it. How did you do yours, Bean?


In other, extremely random crafty news, I've been cruising a lot of food blogs lately, and discovered a great one, Mahanandi, mainly dedicated to Indian food, which I love. Today I tried a modified version of a recipe for stuffed baby portobello mushrooms that she posted on her site.

Very good! I used carrots, red peppers and garlic as the veggies, and Swiss as the cheese. On a bed of yummy basmati rice and peas, this was very filling, not to mention easy to prepare. Highly recommended!

Wow, that dish looks great. I guess the only problem is I don't like cooked carrots or swiss cheese. I'm sure I could change that though!

Wow! What an awesome needle case. Glad to see that you are back to blogging. I thought a while back you had given up! I'll be back for more reading. Are you still knitting with the group?

Hi Erin! Yeah, you could substitute whatever in that recipe, it's very flexible.

Hi Diana! Yep, I'm still knitting with the group, my schedule just hasn't jived with it lately. I hope to go this weekend!
