Something old, something new


A couple of week's ago I took a knitting class based on the Gunnister pouch.  The 17th century original was found in a peat bog in Scotland, along with other personal items. 

Here's a picture of the original:


My adaptation includes a design of crosses, instead of the stripes and checks of the original.


It's also a little bit longer - just the perfect size for holding my iphone.
