I finished sewing in the zipper, so my orange bag is now DONE! It's so funny how such a little thing delays completion for such a long time.
I'm still working on the nightcap. I am now down to 20 stitches per section.... and every three rows I drop another stitch per section. Decrease row, knit plain row, purl a row... 19 more times and a tassel and then I'm done. ...then I can work more on the slippers and stripy socks and new projects!
