It was fast and easy and I think it looks pretty good for a first effort.
Since I've been knitting for the charity KAS Care for a while now, I've built up a rather large amount of things to mail to South Africa. I thought if I were able to sell a few things I could use the money to offset the price of the postage to S. Africa. That in mind, I also finished a knitted lavender pillow as well.
I'm not too sure about the lavender pillow, it seems a bit lop-sided.
After the girls got home we did some gardening. We picked more blueberries, raspberries, and pulled up the onions. Then we planted tulips--my favorite!
