    Coming up with the ideas is the easy part, lol. Actually getting up and doing something about them is the part I'm lacking lately.

    Cinnamon toothpicks sound interesting - how do you make them?

    If you make the placemat totes for men, I suggest you put velcro on the top and eliminate the handles. Let me know what thoughts you have on this!!

    The cinnamon toothpicks seem easy.

    Pretty much everything says to do them like this.

    What if you made the placemats into a back pack? Small enough to carrry a bottle of water, snack, newspaper....able to carry on your back as you ride your bike.

    Awesome, Vicki and Debbie! I am about halfway through my first gift - I tried making a coasters and placemat set for my in-laws. It's one of my first times trying stranding in knit for the coasters, and it didnt come out perfect so depending on how many other gifts I finish I may do them again. However I am kinda stuck with the placemats. I couldn't find a pattern I liked so I am trying to make it myself. however I am fairly new to knit!
    Can you all answer a question for me (debbie, vicki, other knitters?) I am trying to make a star inside a stockinette fabric. I thought I could do it on the knit side with purl bumps. would I just purl all the way back and the pattern will "pop" up? or do I have to figure out how to do it from both sides (in which case I will scrap the project and find a pattern!) Thanks!
