FO: Fancy Bow
I just finished a fancy bow. It made a great cat toy, but it would also be perfect for a holiday corsage, hair thingy, or to personalize an otherwise generic gift (like money, wine, or gift cards.)

My only regret is that I should have done a couple more repetitions--it isn't fat enough. Here are the instructions: http://countrynaturals.com/knit-crochet/bow.html. It doesn't go very fast, since it uses fine yarn and small needles, but can still easily be done in a day.

Very nice work! What won't we think of next? I sure do like all the ways and uses that knitting can be put to!

Lovely bow!

Lovely bow!
Thanks. I love making up simple, silly stuff to knit. I get goofy this time every year. If this one went faster, I'd be using it all over the house for Christmas -- on wreaths, curtain tiebacks -- I bet it would even make neat tree ornaments with the right yarn. Ah well -- maybe next year.
