Other Uses For Popcorn Tins
First of all, I have to admit that I totally stole this idea from Froggie . These were the Christmas popcorn tins at Walmart. They were on the markdown aisle for less than $2.oo and once you remove the bag of popcorn inside, they make awesome little knitting tins. I need to add a bit of velcro on the sides to hold the little wicker top on...it tends to slide a bit. Not a bad little "bag" for 2 bucks. Thanks, Froggie.
I almost finished knitting all the pieces for my little duck. Just have a foot and the beak left to knit and then put it all together and put the stuffing inside. I still have plans for the teddy bear just haven't started it yet. The first attempt got sent to the frog pond. Now if I can just get good at seaming...I think might actually enjoy knitting toys.
The weather man is running his mouth again. We're watching for some sleet and possibly a little snow tonight. Let's hope he's consistent and wrong...as usual. I don't want any more nasty sleet.
We brought in the wood for the fireplace just in case. Better safe than sorry.
