Temporary Stash Enhancement

Yesterday I made a temporary stash enhancement. I went to the library and checked out some knitting books. One of the books I checked out was The Urban Knitter. I love the little Mary Jane shoes in there, and I am definately going to make a pair! I'm sure I'll squeeze them in somewhere! Who knows when I'll ever finish them though. My work in progress list grows and grows and grows as my time shrinks and shrinks and shrinks. Anyways, I'm sure I will be adding this book to my library. I love watching that grow!

I started a new knitting needle case. The person I am making it for sent the material in the mail. It is quite lovely. I decided to use "invisible thread" on it so that nothing will clash with the colors. I think it was a great choice. The only problem with that is figuring out the tension on my machine. It is an old Kenmore and I don't have a manual for it. It's all trial and error, but mostly error. I finally got it right and I am probably a quarter of the way through it. I'll post pictures of it when I am done.
