A quick gift for 2012

Hello friends.. here is an inexpensive gift idea for you. Perfect for little girls and the big ones too Smile
Now is the time were you can find 2012 calendars very inexpensive at your local stores. This pocket calendar was only 50 cents, it had  he pretty pink paper as cover and a clear overlay. Al I had to do was color my image and add some embellishments. My kids love those little books. I encourage them to use them to write their thoughts in. Niklas likes if I tell him it is his secret science book and I have him write one day how the weather is like or what he spies outside the window. Anyhow.. of course my kids get just the plain books lol… but this one  was perfect to sent to Magnolia – the company asked the other day the Designers if we could sent something in for them to take to CHA. When I pick those kinds of books I always look for a spiral to add ribbons.. just makes it easier and frilly.

Here is an other little cowl I have finished over the holidays using only 1 skein of the pretty Malabrigo yarn in Shocking Pink Smile - after blocking it, the stich really showed nicely and it lays very flat. When you knit it, it does look like a large sock.
