Where to Find: Lexie Barnes
Sleek, stylish, fun and functional - who could ask for more when it comes to needle storage? Betty from Lexie Barnes is a fabulous option for straight needles!
Unlike most straight needle rolls, which are usually just a big piece of fabric with pockets, Betty is a sleek, structured case complete with padded sides. Measuring 15" high x 5" deep when closed and featuring 13 pockets in varying heights, Betty is storage and protection for your favorite sets of needles.
Betty features a clear zippered notions pocket (perfect for stitch markers) and a dual zip closure, which makes accessing your needles a breeze. The interior is made from a wipeable Lexie Barnes logo lining that is easy to care for (a nice feature if you ever decide to have Betty pull double duty and house your make-up brushes the next time you travel). Betty reatils for $59 and is currently available in 3 of Lexie Barnes' most popular prints: Leopard (as shown above), Kiri (a red and white floral print) and Delilah (a black and white floral print).
Let's face it, our needles work hard and deserve a little pampering, especially those extra special sets we all have in our collections.... perhaps your Grandmother's faithful size 7's or those handmade size 4's you splurged on at the last fiber show. If you find yourself toting around several sets at a time, whether traveling long distances or just running off to your local knit night, Betty is your answer. Your needles will thank you!
