Our home is now well and Tilly-proofed: covers on the electrical sockets, sharp corners padded. But none of that does a bit of good if there are sharp metal eye-pokers and pointy wooden bottom-spearers (i.e. my un-put away knitting needles) lying on every chair and table.
So, with two large rectangles of my favourite IKEA fabric, a scrap of twill tape, and a collection of little numbers cut from the selvedges of fabrics, a little knitting roll was sewn up. It houses quite a motley collection of needles -- some colourful aluminium loners inherited from a friend, some wooden widows who lost their partners to a ravenous puppy Bella, and everything from a set of seven double-pointed size 0's to a pair of pink hunka-munka 17's.
All neatly rolled up, even the most curious Tilly can get her hands on it without danger!
