a reminder that my contest is still up until friday. i want to hear those birthday stories! ^^
this has been a very long week and it’s still only wednesday! i have a management exam tomorrow night and an accounting exam friday night so i’ve been busy with that and work for my other classes and… i didn’t get to knit for two days in a row earlier in the week… but it’s ok now because i’m past the heel and onto the toe of my second footie. i hope to be done by the weekend (or on the weekend, at latest).
as things get more hectic, i find that the only thing i want to do is knit. i want to be doing something for someone else, finishing my footies or making a chemo hat (the fun fur ones) or just something more exciting than studying. i know, i know. i have to study. i’m just very easily distracted when i’m doing schoolwork… i find that i really like cookies. ^^
to hide my lack of current knitting content (yes, i’ll admit it), i remembered a little while ago that i never posted pictures of the little pouch i came up with for my grandma (the one who isn’t sick). she wrote me to thank me for her market bag for Christmas and mentioned using it to take her keys and games down to the pool. well, keys in a market bag? didn’t sound so great to me, so i whipped up this little pouch. i told her that she must know i love her a lot, since the pouch has both snaps AND velcro (hand-sewn!). i didn’t use a pattern, but it’s not so difficult to see how it was made. the snap thing goes around the strap of the bag, so your keys don’t end up at the bottom and hard to find.
