My first pin keep

This was my very first attempt at a pin keep. Gaynor has received it and is happy, so I am too, even if I couldn't make up my mind on how to finish the ribbon.

I did learn some lessons from making this. Next time I will use thicker cardboard in the centre, I think it will help to give it more stability. I will try it when I put my second together, possibly Friday.

I did get some more knitting done yesterday and now have two fronts to go with the back of the foxy jacket. I have started a sleeve so hope to get that done today.

I have to take DS2 to the craft shop today to get him a project to do over the weekend. It was his request when I asked him what he wanted to do when big brother was away. I think I can cope with that sort of activity.

Your pinkeep is just wonderful, and I love the verse on it.I haven't been doing much handwork lately, and when I see yours, I always get tempted to pull mine out!
