Boxed Bag

I made this fully lined boxed bag today, using this tutorial.

I use it to store my small knitting projects which are in progress. It is large enough to fit DPNS, or circular needles.

Fall Napkin Rings

I made these napkin rings for Thanksgiving using leaves from a dollar store, natural pine cones and acorns found during a walk in the woods, and tied them up with raffia.

In Vogue Lap Blanket

I finished knitting this lap blanket yesterday.

I used the Boxed Cable design from the Vogue Stitchionary Volume 2: Cables, found on Page 141.

I Cast on 214 stitches, using the first four and last four stitches to knit a right leaning cable and a left leaning cable on either side to create an edging.
I repeated the 28 row pattern until I ran out of yarn.

Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Encore Worsted
7 Skeins = 1400 Yards
5mm 40 Inch Circular Needle
