You've seen his front....now his back:
He is my new traveling binding kit. The tin is the perfect size for all my little bits and pieces. I just cut a piece of felted wool to fit the inside. When it isn't a binding kit, it will be holding stitch markers and holders, measuring tape, and tip protectors for my knitting needles.
I had a lot of fun playing with my wool today, thanks to Woolly Mammoth Woolens . I decided this beautiful tin needs a dust cover. This is going to be fun.
Meet the original Gus....except his name is Dexter:
My wallet would not close today. I am not lucky enough that the bulk of my paper money was the cause. No, it was all the cards I have in there. You know the kind. The ones from your favorite stores that offer $25 off if you have 20 stamps, and business cards. You can't get rid of them and if they are not in your wallet close at hand, you will forget to use them. I think I really need to order another tin for all of those. It will fit conveniently in my purse so I will have them when I need them and my wallet will close again.......just an idea.
