It's been ages!

School, work, school, work, no time for knitting! No time for any sort of creativity. But I did steal a little time to pick up my needles and make a convienient little holder for my channel changers so that I don't lose them between my pillows or blankets or whatever else.

I made up the pattern on the fly:

Size 11 needles

Hold 2 strands of yarn together throughout.

CO 22 stitches

Row 1: k10, p2, k10
Row 2: p10, k2, p10
Row 3-19: Repeat rows 1 and 2
Row 20: k across
Row 21: p10, k2, p10
Row 22: k10, p2, k10
Row 23-39: Repeat rows 21 and 22
Row 40: k across
Row 41: p across

Continue in sst for 5 more rows. Bind off.

Stitch up the sides and line up the purl stitches in the middle, stitch along those as well.

Voila! A handy dandy holder with two pockets.
