one thing that i bought, since i'm not suppose to be buying yarn, is a set of little circular needle point protectors. i use to think they were stupid, but now, i don't exactly think that. usually i would say that just slipping the stitches down to the cable is enough when i take my project with me, but i'm not taking any chances with lace and addis.
and now, for the non-knitty ....
those are my new topflappens! they have not been for a test drive yet, as i haven't turned my oven on in many many hot days here. though, the thought of cookies is tempting.
the right side is sewn from some of the scraps of my denyse schmidt scrap bag. the back is that silvery fabric that is used sometimes for ironing board covers. in between are two layers of cotton batting ... i hope that's enough to keep me from getting burned! the bias binding was made from some of my scrap. the potholders measure about 6" square.
