The Japanese knot bags worked well as gifts. I have 2 left to sew, 1 for DF Z (didn't see her for Christmas but her birthday is coming up) and the last for myself. I forgot to take any photos but I think I will keep little snippets of the fabrics in a clear ziplock bag with the pattern & instructions to document the project. Will try to get a decent photo of the fabric snippets to post here.
Next on the machine I intend to get back to several Works in Progress. We all know about intentions, right? Knitting hats for charity:
The library's hat & mitten tree will be cleared off tomorrow and those items will be delivered to local shelters. Some hats have already been delivered to a veteran's center. The project has been popular enough that we will continue accepting and forwarding items for a couple months as winters run long here in Iowa.
I found 5 large skeins of yarn from DMIL's sewing room that I thought I had already given away. This is one time that procrastinating was a good thing because now I need the yarn myself to make hats on the knitting loom. I enjoy knitting while I'm watching videos, and it's surprising how many stitches I can do while waiting for slow web pages to load. It's a win-win situation as I can do something I enjoy, and afterwards the completed projects leave my house to bless someone else.
