I would like something fairly simple as I don't have a lot of time (the big jolly deadline is looming). Something functional would also be nice--I don't think that they have very much. My skill level is about intermediate--I can't make pretty seams, but I can follow a lacey pattern.
(My back-up plan is knitty's nagano cherryblossom strand, but it isn't that functional.)
Thank-you in advance for any suggestions--my brain has been thorougly wracked.
Truthfully I think the knitty nagano cherry blossom would be a wonderful gift for your brothers girlfriend! I mean it relates to something that may be a reminder to her of home ( at a time where she may be homesick, or feel a little strange) and would probably be quite a meaningful present that not only brings comfort but was well thought out and made with lots of love just for her
I say stick with it its very stylish and a great idea
learn a lot from crayons
some are sharp
some are pretty
, some are dull
some have weird
but they all exist
very nicely in the
