I made this bag as a gift for Jessica this Christmas. It is a knitting bag. Jessica has become quite the knitter now.
It has a Laurel Burch cat button on the flap. It is a great size for knitting project.
It matches the knitting roll that I made her last spring.
This is the blanket that Jessica gave us for Christmas. It is so thick and soft and warm!
Perfect for watching TV in the evening when it is a little cooler. Jim is cuddled up under it in this picture but that is not usually who is cuddled up under the blanket!! It is just the cosiest and warmest blanket. The nice thing about this blanket is that it is just wide enough to cover you up completely on the couch - and it is extra long to scrunch up under your chin and tuck it under your toes! It is a fabulous blanket. Jim and I have a deal with the blanket. I get it at night while watching TV and he gets it in the morning while he sits on the deck and has his morning coffee. Thanks Jess!!!
Jessica had not quite completed the blanket when they came for Christmas. So I actually helped out - holding little Phoenix and playing with Hunter as she frantically knitted on the "sweater" for Dave. She insisted she would have the "sweater" completed by Christmas morning. She was knitting it in panels - so the piece she was working on was a grey/black/grey panel. I was convinced that there was no way she could get it finished as she hadn't even begun to knit the sleeve and how was the darn thing going to go together anyway!! As it was she had it in the box for us Christmas morning. I can imagine I will be clutching my blanket as they drag me off to the nursing home when I am old and grey --- oh wait - that's now---LOL.
