charity project, mohair shawl

with items i do/remake for forest farm for the Christmas bazaar, they also give me projects that are half made. this one uses a trendsetter jupiter yarn. it's got mohair and other blends and sells for 7.50, from a store in ca. very expensive for just a small chunk of yarn.

looks like one started to make a shawl. but it's in 2 different sections. thought i'd just work and finish one and make it longer with yarn left and add other section later. it's got chunks of bright colored yarn among the black.

and these two pictures, taken outside

this is a reversable shawl

gps holders

made a few holders for the gps and one for the cords.

this one i kept the plastic that it sits in when you buy it and made a pouch for it and

put the belt type loop on the outside to close it.

the other one is more like a drawstring pouch. both will be easy to slip into the pockets on the bottom section of cargo pants when traveling.
