After knitting my husband's sweater I needed a quick project to make me feel like I was able to accomplish something in a short amount of time. I chose to make something for myself - for a change. Armed with leftover odds and ends of my kitchen cotton, I decided to make a case for my earphones. This is something I've been wanting to make for a while now, but never quite seemed to get around to it. The new case sure beats the ziploc sandwich bag I had been using :)
My grandmother's button box which was handed down to my mother and then to me really came in handy.
I rummaged through my button tin of all kinds of old, really old buttons. I had a few different buttons to choose from, but finally decided on a navy blue one to sew on my case.
We also celebrated my middle son's nineteenth birthday yesterday. He's home from college for the weekend and we decided to celebrate his birthday early since his actual birthday is Monday and he'll be back at school. I can't believe he's nineteen! College is really turning him into a fine young man. I'm not sure how it happens whether living away from home makes them more tolerant of their poor old parents or what, but they do become nicer people in general. I know I observed this as it happened to my oldest son. It certainly makes me hopeful the same thing will happen with my youngest. Fun times ahead :)
I can't believe February is just about over. Where did the month go? I'll be glad to see the spring weather finally arrive. There are no signs of spring around here...still too much snow yet to melt. Good weather though to stay inside and knit. Happy Knitting everyone :)
