I cast on 28 stitches of Shepherds Shades in a pale pink. Using size 4 DPs, I knit top down in stockinette, except for a eyelet row of "YO SSK" around. When I deemed the pouch to be long enough I started decreasing. I debated grafting, but I wanted a rounder bottom. I decreased like a star toe on a sock, starting with K2, then SSK around, knit a row then K1 SSK, etc. Drew the tail through the last 7 stitches and secured inside. A couple crochets chains for the drawstrings, and I was done.
It came in handy for the trip to Knit Michigan, as the back of the van was quite noisy on the expressway and I was able to listen to most of The Scarlet Pimpernel.
I also found time yesterday for purchasing some buttons. The wooden ones could be reversible, I have them laid out to show both sides. Right now I am leaning toward the burgundy ones I think.....As you can see, I love to knit with plenty of markers. I have about 10 more rows to the eyelet increase row. Then I will have to run a lifeline along the stitches to try it on for length and width.
Well, back to knitting.
Oh, and did I mention this is Speed Week? Daytona 500 in just a few more days!
