  1. thank you so much, jeanne. i think i'm gonna make the pouch...will a normal size checkbook fit in yours? also, i'm using single stranded self-striping noro...maybe u can help me figure out how to altar the pattern if u come to snb tonight? thanks again for sharing...i'll post a pic when i'm done :)

  2. I would guess that if you used size 11 needles instead of 13's you'd be fine with the noro. A checkbook would definately fit into the pouch - actually the pouch might be too big for that. So with the 11's it would probably be the perfect size. What a fun idea.... I may have to make one of those for me!!!
