After mis-placing yet another homework assignment due yesterday, I finally got it together today to make a pocket file to hold those bits and pieces needed for school. I had planned on making this ages ago, but what was stopping me was fabric choice. I couldn't decide if it should match my kitchen; if I should use fabric I liked, or if it should have a kid feel, since it would be used for kid stuff. I did a bit of a compromise and chose a bright blue/green stripe paired with yellow gingham.
Now we have a place to store those homework assignments that are not due the next day, but still need to be out so we can see them and be reminded that the due-date is coming up. It will also hold all those little readers the kids come home with and their school library books.
I also started work on yet another scarf for a friend. I started a pink scarf for her early in the year, and after unravelling it a number of times and finally completing it I decided it just wasn't right. Scarf number two is made with a chunky kind of yarn, and I am trying one of those ruffle-y type ones. I love how fast it's going, but after unravelling it twice and now almost being done, I think it's too long and has to be unravelled again!
It's a good think I love crochet.
