To show my thanks to both of these wonderful people my mom and I made up these bags. I filled the bags with goodies. My mom is planning on making up a few to sell at Knot Another Hat, because they are perfect for knitting, since knitting needles won't go through them. This first one is for Sabrina, who has a kitty that loves yarn. She doesn't have a knitting bag yet and she can't take her knitting home with her because her kitty will attack it.
This second bag is for Sarah. Each one of the bags is reversable so we did one side in garden fabric and the other in cherries. Sarah loves cherry things since she grew up surrounded by a cherry orchard. She immediately turned it inside out and used the cherry side out.
As a last note, when I took my sock completely out I had nearly finished the cuff, so it isn't a huge loss. I usually try to decide by the end of the cuff whether to keep going or not, so I don't have to rip out the heel.
