Christmas Gifts received 2006
The case was part of a gift from my parents and looks like a makeup case. I could not think of a use for it (I cannot wear makeup) and thought about letting my daughter use it at school for her theater makeup. Then I saw what a cute knitting case it could be. I like it! I can even prop my pattern up with it. My daughter gave me a knitting book called Hip Graphic Knits (knitting books are always a good gift) and my son got me a beautiful red velvet box of Sees chocolates (a rare treat).
Work In Progress
I started out thinking I was knitting a sock for a knit-along but the image of a mitten kept popping in my head every time I picked it up to work on it. So a mitten it will be. I am following the sock pattern on the top of the mitten and stockinet on the palm. I love the decorative edging on the cuff. I hope the next project wants to be socks.
