  1. I like to make something small for all those teacher/coworker type people in my life. Like the Korknissen(easy knitting project using leftover yarns and corks seen here: http://www.saartjeknits.nl/patterns/Korknisse.html)
    or knit a dishcloth with a small bar of soap, or some other small ornament.Something small and easy and quick just to spread holiday cheer or place in a stocking.

  2. Thanks for these links, Sharon. I've just finished checking them out. I really like the lunch bag for the bike. :- )
