Well your lovely comments about how it was not so bad a fail gave me courage to knit it up. It is now two very "noticeable" pot holders for the microwave in our staffroom. These certainly will not get lost! Here's a pic of them being blocked.
And since there are even less days until Christmas than I thought (slight panic starting to set in!), I thought I would share the first completed Christmas present. I did cut it fine though, finished with a week to spare for a early Christmas lunch with friends.
It's a French Market Bag, felted for Margaret. I do hope she likes it. The pattern is available for FREE! from Knitty.com. I love this pattern and have already started another one for me! Only change is that the handles need to be longer for me.
What do we think, will Margaret like it?
