Cotton Boll Knitting

My binder of hoarded project ideas gleaned from here and there came in handy over the weekend to entertain me during my enforced bed rest. One such project was something shared on One Pretty Thing—a knitted cotton boll pattern originally posted on Knitting Daily to hold . . . cotton.

Despite nature’s directives as to the best color for cotton bolls, my choice was Sea (Mer). After a quick bit of knitting, I pondered the usefulness of a cotton-stuffed cotton boll. It’s cute, soft, small, and maybe even cuddly—but what in the world will I actually do with it?

A few wild ideas buzzed through my head, but I finally tamed my wayward thoughts and opted for a simple solution. The adorable little boll of cotton will tuck quite nicely in my toiletry bag for travel or even in my purse.

You're so funny June. That's a very cute project!

(And isn't it weird -- your photo post never did show up on google reader. I'm sure glad I found it via the challenge!)
