They are easy and fun to make. You can pull on the ribbon and the card will come out. It's like magic. If you are in my family, one is coming your way.
I have a pocket wide enough behind my phone that will fit my wallet, lipstick, even my zune 30gig.:)
I will have to make more in all kinds of colors.
Also, from my parents and me selling a pink knitted hat like my sisters I was able to buy this Denise Interchangable needle set. I already cast on my first project. This is the Art Yarn Beaded silk and sequins my mom bought me on vacation. I think of her and my Dad while I am knitting this yarn. I am making a hat from Knitty. It is called Duet . I love how this pattern can be either a scarf or a hat. I had a hard time with what to make with this yarn because it is so beautiful. Now I can have 2 projects in one. I am glad I waited to knit with this yarn and found this pattern. Check it out. Thank you Mom and Dad!!!!! and Me!!!!
I wonder what else I will make using these needles!!! I am looking for shawl patterns. I may make this Heirloom shawl Check it out. I have some 100% Rayon yarn I may make one out of. Ravelry has a group that is making this shawl with a errata page. I guess people saw some mistakes in the pattern. I also saw Laura's shawl pattern I may make as well. Must get started. I am also finishing up my sister's new mittens. I hope these don't unravel on her.

Here are the hat and gloves I made for my sister. Can you see where it is coming out? Ahhh. hold on little stitches please don't run too far. I am trying to make a new pair for her this week and I am going to make sure I weave in the tail really far. I know it is cold up there and I want to make sure her hands stay warm.
Hang in there little gloves. These are the first pair I have ever knit. I was surprised at how fast they were to knit up.
I love working with this yarn. I am going to have to make me a pair. It is Bernat Alpaca.
The fair isle pattern makes the hat thicker, therefore it is warmer. Soon Cindy, they will be on their way to Minnesota. I love you!!!!

I finished weaving this bag just in time for Christmas. Eli gave this bag to his wife for Christmas. He said she loved it. I really enjoyed making this bag. I also loved how the colors worked really well together. I have some leftover yarn from this project, so I am going to make a cell phone cozy for her as well.
My friend Pat at work has been working on this cross stitch project over the last year. It is nearly finished. It is so beautiful. It's about 15"x 15" approx. I just love the colors. Awesome job Pat!!!
Well I would post my Christmas presents I made this year, but I didn't get them done. Oops. Maybe I will get one done today? I better get to it then. Merry Christmas!!!!
