This week I made Emily a bag to contain all her Japanese items which include:
(a Korean one in English is shown...The Bride of the Water God. It has very pretty art and is her largest one so we made some of the pockets fit it. Yes, she wanted her manga in pockets so they would be protected from evil dings. Her Mama loves her so that's what she got...Pockets not dings although I'm guessing she got those too.lol.)
pens and pencils
electronic Japanese/English dictionary
(Thankfully Emily has a tutor for Japanese. Emily and her teacher use Skype because we live in two different states...
I think that is so cool)
ipod with large headphones
(none of my kids like those wee little ear buds...Do you or yours?)
I really hope this bag lasts a long time as I'm not in the mood to make another for a long time especially one with so many pockets (ten of the evil things although not as evil as the munching needle cover ended up being.lol.).
I also made Michael a pair of Owlings like I talked about in Week 2 and an ipod cozy but the cozy got frogged and will not be tried again, ever...Really bad idea even the kids agreed on this one.l0l.
I also knitted a frog leg (Is it really a frog leg when it has no toes? It doesn't look like one without them I think) for a Tree Frog for Alexander's up coming birthday in March and the cuff on a pair of Norwegian Totoro mittens for Emily. I can tell that the Tree frog is going to be one of those forced knits for me but I think Alex will like it so it will be worth the effort. I need to start making the Spider for Alexander's birthday too, but I haven't decided on color...He wants yellow.
