|These little feet will protect the bag and are easy to install.|
|Nigh Duck is made of Debbie Stoller's Full of Sheep Wool.|
My other finished object is the Welted Cowl by John Brinegar. Let me say one thing that I learned while making this cowl. Because I have been a seamstress in the past, I appreciate the various weights and densities of fabric when choosing material for a pattern. In knitting, I have discovered that some stitches also create a distinct "fabric". Welting is just bands of garter and stockinette stitch, but what happens is this luxurious collapsing and draping. The yarn also contributed to the drape of this cowl, but now I really want to go back to the Vogue Knitting Holiday 2010 article that John wrote about welting and see where I might be able to apply it to a favorite pattern.

The other "Making" that I have happening is that tonight, I will be convening a group of knitters from my neighborhood at our branch library. I am hoping to increase the circle of fanatic knitters in my zip code!
