This past week in Our Happy CAL Place on Ravelry, some of us made these cute Heart Pocket Note Holders. When I first saw the project I knew I wanted to make one to hang above my kitchen calendar to hold pens that I use to write stuff down with:
I feel kind of silly loving something so kitschy. But I do!
And see how well it coordinates with my calendar,
and it fills the purpose I envisioned for it perfectly:
By the way, the flower pattern was found here. It is not part of the note holder pattern - in case anyone is interested.
And then yesterday a new CAL was offered up for these Bowl Cozies:
Now, let me be clear... my bowl cozy did not turn out at all like it was supposed to. Mine did not take on a bowl shape, though to be honest I only made mine single layered, so that is possibly why. While single-layered is satisfactory for "insulation", mine was pretty floppy and ultimately useless.
Not wanting to give up, I looked at others' projects and noticed that someone else had pinched in the corners so I gave that a try. That did make it cozier and I look forward to giving it a try in the microwave soon. The pattern worked out correctly for more people than not, so don't let my flub dissuade you from giving the pattern a go if you like the idea of one of these things.
And being the last Sunday of February, I counted up my knitted (and one crocheted) dishcloth made this month. Ten new cloths added to the gift/use some day box:
