For some reason, I was inspired to knit a little pouch for my clothes pins for hanging clothes out to dry. So I started off, pretty much using this pattern
and doubled kitchen cotton on size 10.5 needles. I did the front and back and blocked them. Thought they looked nice, but a little small. I just couldn't bring myself to knit the looooooong strap/gusset so I just seamed it up and made a twisted strap with beads knotted on the ends. I started to fill it with my clothes pins only to discover that it held LESS than the pitiful plastic container I had been using previously
. So I gave it to my niece yesterday as a little summer purse and she loved it so it was worth it anyways!!!
If you're wondering what the yarn is, it's "this is why we don't dye cotton yarn with Kool-Aid yarn"
It looks cute but it is NOT colour fast and if it gets washed it will not be the same colour anymore. Oh well!!
