Work In Progress Wednesday

After fifteen years of marriage, my husband finally asked  me to knit something for him! To be fair, for most of the marriage, I was only crocheting, and mostly afghans, so...
So anyway, I had him look through some patterns and he chose this from the October 2007 issue of Knit N Style:

Here's what I got so far:

I took him with me to Joann's Etc., and had him pick out the yarn. I was skeptical that the Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool was going to be soft enough, so I had him rub it against his neck. He was fine with it. Hopefully he will still be fine with it when he's wearing it!

A slightly closer close-up.

The other day, I got these cute little wooden ear buds:

And I thought, "Ear buds as cute as these, ought to have their very own cute drawstring case!" Sure, the box they came in is fine, but it's kind of bulky if I want to put them in my purse. So, I started a side project, making a little drawstring bag for the ear buds:
I only have the bottom of the bag plus a small portion of the first row going up the bag.

You can see that first row (at the back of the piece) better in this photo.

I'm using Red Heart Cotton in Frosty Green.

That's all for now....

The sweater is impressively ambitious, and it seems to be coming along beautifully. The little earbuds bag is so sweet!
