Filofaxing knitter….

My two favourite obsessions … Filofax organisers and knitting.

I was lucky to find this pocket sized Pak in a charity shop.

Originally, I planned to use it as a wallet however, fellow Filofaxing knitter Nadia suggested I use it as a knitting case.

I store my interchange KnitPro needle tips in the card slots and a post it notes. On the right is a floral dashboard that I made from a birthday card I received.

I recycled the plastic protector sleeve from a few birthday cards and used decorative tape from Tiger to make pockets for the cables.  I carry  20cm, 40cm,  60cm, 80cm, and 100cm knitting cables

I made another pocket using the cover of a knitting magazine.

A clear zipped pocket holds a few stitch markers, yarn needle.
