My youngest wanted me to knit for her teacher the cell phone case from 30 Min-Knits: What Can You Knit in Half an Hour or Less? , but I thought it could use something a bit more fun than the polka-dots for embellishment, so I had my daughter look through some embroidery ideas for me. She chose an owl, and I think it's just the thing!
I made handwarmers out of red flannel for another teacher. I don't have a picture of those, but I am making another set, so here is an in-progress photo of the next ones I'm working on:
In other news, the tuque is complete, and mitten thumbs are up next! I also have a few gifts I'm working on for my husband, but I'm a little worried I won't get them done on time. I've run out of yarn for the one gift (and have ordered more), so one out of three won't be done, but I have hopes that I can finish the other two (the sewn gift and the edible one) in time. That and the mittens for that matter. Wish me luck!
