    Hi! I made the Amigurumi Pincushion for my mother for Christmas, but I added a “saucer”, and she absolutely loved it.

    Thank you for putting out this podcast, I have enjoyed listening to it and getting good tips and tricks.

    Go, Liz, Go! You can probably knit up the garter stitch booties while you travel. Pack your gifts in a gift bag and tuck them in when you are done, or use them to decorate the gift by attaching them to the ribbon.
