Blurry view of something.
Pretty nice, huh? HA! I am going to charge it up and put it on her before bed. :)
Next step- try it on kids! HA!
Loy called me yesterday and said she needed three gift card holders by today. I remembered I had seen a cute tutorial that make holders that looked like purses, and they were for girls, so I figured it would work. I did have to modify the tutorial tho- it was much wider, to hold up to four cards, and I only wanted to hold one, so I did it only 1/4 inch wide. Very easy to make, and could be fancied up if you had more warning and didn't have a sinus infection. :)
Mom thought Loy should actually pay for these, but, of course, she never does! HA!

Have a great week,
close up of working with FOUR needles at a time to join on one set of needles.
The arrow shows where the two layers are on one needle. The dark is the outside layer, the light is the inside layer.
Now half the stitches are joined on one needle. I flipped the layer so you can see the inside is all solid light blue.
When the stitches are all on one needle, you knit the front layer stitch, then purl the back layer stitch. You hold both colors of yarn together, and follow a chart to work the pattern.Close up view:
Hopes this helps explain the process. Basically, you are knitting two hats, that are joined at the very bottom edge, at the same time. Makes following the chart a bit difficult.
Note: I do NOT go back and look for mistakes in the finished hats. HA!
Have a good week,
