The youngest two have birthdays this week. They have MACs. I was thinking about laptop cases. Knit it and felt, right?
I got to here
In case you were wondering – I cast on the right number of stitches for the width, knit in the front and back of each stitch on the return effectively doubling the number of stitches on the initial needle. From there, i took both ends of a long circular needle and transferred the stitches separating the front and the back. From there it was Magic Loop.

I think the end is in sight. I finished up the facing
and now just have to bind it off around all those edges. I have started at the right front bottom edge and take one of the inside stitches that has been sitting there on hold and knit it together with a stitch from the front. Effectively, this closes the binding, sealing in the edge.
I don’t use Audible. Not that I really have much against them, but the software insists on taking me to the German language site. I don’t want to go there, it is a much more expensive than pulling books from the US site. So I use iTunes. Buried down toward the bottom of their Audiobooks page – the US site normally has a bargain section with “whatever” priced under 10$. I have picked up quite a few oldie but goodies this way including a lovely Asimov this week.
Moving on to Lord of the Rings (iTunes bargains).
Oh, all that military related paperwork? I have the flipping support form completed and am working my way down the pile.
