The Grand Unveiling

Of the long awaited box.

In 2007 I made an agreement with my dear friend Nick, to knit him a sock weight scarf designed by me. In return he would make me a wooden box to hold my needles.  I finished that scarf in early 2008, and sent it off.  Unfortunately, while Nick started my box ever so long ago, circumstances got in the way and the box was put on hold. And poor Nick had to suffer from years of teasing by both his mother and I about the incomplete box.

But, circumstances have again changed, and the box is complete. It has compartments on the bottom to hold my circular cables. Then on top of that resides a nesting box with 10 separate compartments, to hold my interchangeable needle tips.  It is made of mahogany and maple, with maple burl veneer for the lid.  The piece is simply stunning, and I am so lucky to know someone as talented as Nick.

You know what? This was totally worth the wait.
