As I was putting away some clothing in my wardrobe yesterday, my eyes zeroed in on a white plastic bag. All of a sudden I had a light bulb moment because I remembered what was in that plastic bag. Now, I’m in and out of my wardrobe a number of times throughout the day and yet it was only yesterday that I actually realised what a little treasure I had hiding in this plastic bag.
A couple of years ago one of my son’s friends gave me a lovely bottle of Veuve Clicquot champagne for Christmas that came in a lovely orange/yellow (pumpkin coloured) presentation container. I drank the champagne with my family and promptly wrapped the container and popped it in my wardrobe. It went completely out of my mind until yesterday.
A while ago I also added a page onto my blog called ‘Essential Knitting Paraphernalia’ and on that page I talk about some of the essential knitters’ tools of the trade of which knitting caddies feature.
I’m a bit of a knitting caddy addict as I believe most types of containers can be used as a knitting caddy and that’s where my new Veuve Clicquot knitting caddy originated. What a fantastic idea! From something that’s been sitting in my wardrobe for a couple of years because I didn’t know what to do with it, to a beautiful, classy, stylish knitting caddy that can be taken to any cafe or restaurant and take pride of place on the table. What a talking point it could be!
My new caddy is probably the closest I’ll ever get to mixing with the rich and famous!
I’ve been knitting this scarf for a while now. It’s easy to pick up when I have a few spare minutes or in between projects when I am deciding what to knit next. It now has a new home!
Yes, I am quite happy with my latest find. What do you think of it?
Until next time…
