So, here are the stats:
Pattern: Soft Drawstring Pouch
Yarn: Cotton Fleece by Brown Sheep Co, Oriental Jade, 1 Skein (80% Cotton, 20% Merino)
Needles: US 6, 16" Circulars
Size: 8" wide x 10" high
Mods: The pattern called for all stockinette stitch so that the top edge rolled down a bit. I decided to do a few rows of garter stitch at the top to avoid the rolled edge. Also, I did not make the fringe tassels for the ends of the I-Cord drawstring. I was concerned that they would become frayed and ratty looking after time.
Although this was a very simple project to do (and really should have taken a weekend, but took about 3 weeks, d'oh), I picked up some new skillz:
1) Knitting with circs - check!
2) Making yarn over eyelets - check!
3) Knitting an I-Cord - check!
(Sorry, no pic of the I-Cord, so here's Boomer!)
4) Doing a 3-needle Bind Off - check!
All in all, very basic skillz, but I definitely feel like I've increased my confidence level. Hmm, maybe it's time to try socks again!!!
