A few of you recognize this Bird Case! A few suggested a contest with this as the prize...yeah it was a good idea, but when a certain Bird case gets over 203 hits and no sale...um..not a good PR move to "prize" it away IMHO. Odds are they may not like it. But someday, I knew someone would come along and actually want this.
However, enter my co-worker who loved this from the get go (I showed her my site) and didn't have an interchangeable set, or the inkling to purchase one anytime soon. (she's a knitting natural BTW! Already knitting socks and other stuff with little help from me, I thought she had knitted before, she says after watching me for a year, she kinda just did it.. that and she's not afraid to search the web for help if I'm not around)
Anyhow...My first choice was to rip the bias edging off and use the birdy material to make another case for her, then use the inside for another... But I realized that the inner first row was in birdy fabric, so I had not other choice but to retrofit it.
You can see my seam ripper armed at the ready. (I love the new tweaking you can do on blurry photos now on flickr!)
See, I ripped away a few of the seams between the prior tip slots and voila....room for a small circular needle or dpns. I continued this on the rest of the case as you can see below.
So other than really long needles, this is perfectly retrofitted for her. She loves it!!! I mean was so floored that I would gift it to her...well it went to a good home and it save me from winning the award for the most viewed item on Etsy.
The kids and I have been baking and chilling out. Hubby and I are toasting our 22nd Anniversary with a bottle of champagne...all is ok in NC
Yeah, I still have some seaming and knitting to do..hmmm maybe I can teach DD to seam.... Speaking of DD, here's her latest arteest work. She free-handed all these characters for our door contest at work.. and nope we didn' win...
I'm Lucy and my coworker is Sally...yeah the only girls there!
