4th of July Kleenex Carrying Cases & Other News

I have decided to make some Kleenex Carrying Cases with the 4th of July holiday in mind. I just finished the body of the Kleenex Carrying Case and have thought of what type of button to use for closing it. It's going to have a blue colored button. The yarn I used to make the Kleenex Carrying Case(s) were: Red, White and Blue. I'm going to be selling the Kleenex Carrying Cases at the upcoming Flea and Farmers Markets events in June.

In other knitting news, I have also started making a poncho with the color Natural. It is from the Lion Brand Yarn Company. It's Fisherman's Wool yarn. I'm planning on taking pictures of it as soon as I'm finished putting the fringe on the poncho. I will write some updates on the poncho in the next few weeks.

Farmers Market Event

This afternoon, I went to a Farmers Market event that was in the Kentlands area of Gaithersburg. There were lots of vendors who sold beautiful jewlery and art work. The vendors told me about what to expect when you have a booth to sell items. The information they gave me was very helpful. I told them that I was thinking of selling my knitted items and they thought that sounded great! I showed them a phone sock that I had brought with me, so they had an idea as to what kind of knitting I can do (among other items). They thought the phone sock was very nice.

Well, this is it for right now. More knitting news to come soon.

Eye Glass Case & Other Projects

This afternoon, I was working on another new item-- an Eye Glass Case. The colors of the eye glass case are Lilac and Dark Purple. The eye glass case is machine washable and made with 100% acrylic yarn. It has a draw string so it can close easily and keep the glasses from falling out.

Along with the Eye Glass Case, I also had made a new phone sock that is Bright Orange and Dark Purple. The phone sock has a block-like pattern to it. That is also made with 100% acrylic yarn. Once it is sewn up, I'm going to take a few pictures to be posted on the Knitting By Leah Pictures section. I'm also going to post some other pictures on the main part of the web site.

Have a great weekend ahead! More knitting news to come soon.

New Phone Socks and Other Items Coming Soon

I had made some new phone socks lately. Once they are sewn up, I'm planning on putting some of the pictures into the actual postings in the next few weeks. The new phone socks are Navy Blue and Taupe colored. The Taupe colored phone socks go well with the matching purse that I had made recently, as well. Once that gets sewn up, then I will post a picture of it.

Speaking of phone socks, I had sold the Green with sparkle phone sock over the weekend at a party. The phone sock had gotten used right away.

Well, this is all for right now. More knitting news to come soon. Have a great rest of the week!

Once everything is sewn up and the button is placed on the case, I will take some pictures for the Knitting Samples section and also for the main part of the web site.

With each Kleenex Carrying Case, you get a free starter Kleenex package.
