More repeated projects

It seems that I’m unable to make something just once. After I’d finished the make-up bag for my friend DD came sidling up & asked if I’d make her one as “hand knitted socks have never been my thing”….

She loves it and I’ve now got another skull project lined up for her.

Then I made another one as a leaving present for a colleague:

Unlike the first one I made I’m much happier with the lining on these two and I’ve made it 3/4″ narrower than the pattern suggests:

It was also well received.
