I used an entire ball to make this for me to use to hold my stitches when I need to take them off the needle.

My sister in law asked for these feet tops see found in a magazine. Luckily the picture was pretty clear that I could see the stitches quite well and was able to replicate it.

After making the set for my sister in law I made a sample for my husband to see if he could use it in his shoe business.

My husband wanted a headband for his sunglasses and couldn’t find one he liked that fit these frames. I used pieces of tubing for the ends, it should just fit on without too much of a struggle.  Then I made an icord around them for the rest of the band. Tedious, but came out pretty well.

I was thinking of making myself some clothes for myself and a lot of my friends wanted stuff for themselves. Since I don’t swatch or mathematically design my knits I got a little overwhelmed trying to figure out how to knit a good fit. So I decided to switch to swim wear and made this for myself as a sample to figure out how it all worked together.

This was the first phone case I made for one of my colleagues. I wasn’t really happy with the results because it ended up looking like a coin purse. I cross stitched the logo as a request.

My husband asked for an eye mask to help him sleep during the day while he was on the night shift. Again I misjudged the amount of a border I would need to keep the stockinette stitch from curling.
