I have not knitted for awhile due to the reactivation of my carpel tunnel. Although I have not knitted for long, I actually miss it– handling gorgeous yarns, going through the motion, and creating something. Since a friend’s birthday is coming up and I want to give her something to store her artsy pens, a pencil roll seems to be suitable. Plus, it would be a bit more special if I make it.
The knitting part is actually not challenging; the sewing part gives me the trepidation. Yes, I did not pass home economics with flying colors, but I figure, everyone has that first time, right? Overall, no blood is shed and it does not come out badly. I hope my friend will like it!

|Backside. Original pattern did not ask for a button, but I thought it will cover up
messy sewing job behind it, as well as decorate the wrap.
