A Giveaway

Since I was going through my knitting, I decided to offer up a couple of gifts I found in the finished object collection.

First, two cotton bags. I made quite a few of these a couple of summers ago and for some reason, these two are still hanging around. They're small, but great for carrying keys, sunglasses, and a few other things, or they might be nice for little girls to use. I used the good cotton, for these, Plymouth Yarn's Fantasy Naturale. You may have both if you wish, just let me know. This is a cell phone cosy made out of Peaches and Creme cotton. It doesn't have a closure but you can add one if you like. I made it as an example when I taught a knitting class to middle schoolers a couple of years ago.

Finally, these are made from the Saartje's Booties pattern, but I think they're too small for a baby; I'm sure my gauge was off. But they'd be nice for a doll I imagine, if you don't mind adding the snaps, buttons, or some other way to keep them on the feet.

If no one wants these, they're going to go to the thrift store, so let me know in the comments if you're interested and I'll be glad to mail them to you!

By the way, has anyone seen this watch? I love it!! If I didn't already have a boxful of beautiful watches already that need batteries, I'd be seriously tempted.


  1. They're all quite nice. You're just giving them away? How about a trade? I'll trade you that dark green bag for some handspun!

    OMG--word verification is, bushed, if that isn't the truth, I don't know what is! TGIS.

  2. Rudee, that'd be great! We'll trade mailing addresses in email?
