Our "Tabletop Knitting Caddy".....
When you can't sleep at night because crazy ideas are swimming around in your head, it's best to go with them and see what develops.
My best knitting is done late at night when everyone's been tucked into bed. I usually have a hot or cold drink on the end table next to me with a coaster underneath it. Then everything that I need for that particular project is scattered all over the table, too. It's a mess and then I find myself knocking things off onto the floor.............
So, somewhere this little idea for a tabletop knitting caddy was formed. It holds a 9 x 12" piece of ceramic tile that can be bought at any home improvement store. This tile not only holds the caddy in place from the weight, but it also serves as a coaster to keep the table top finish from getting wet.
A small pocket was placed on top to hold double pointed needles (or whatever) and then a larger pocket drapes down the side. It works great by allowing the piece to drape across the front of the end table and then all your supplies are in easy reach.
Will anyone be interested in such a product? I haven't a clue and only time will tell. Tomorrow I'll get back to the drawing board and see what improvements I can make. Cross your fingers and toes for us!
