I created this crotchet needle holder for my wife. It is made of Mahogany with a Danish oil finish.

That is a great idea. My wife also crochets, might have to steal the concept, but with a different design (since it’s too late for me to do the Heart).

Great idea. Could be applied to other uses as well.

Thanks for the comments. I used three maple dowels as spacers. Now I have more to build in various shapes and sizes. Will be a busy spring…

Cool and pretty gift and functional as well. I bet she loves it and she’ll get plenty of use from it.

Have your say...
