Here is the Eyeglasses holder I finished for Matthew today. The yarn I used is Patons Classic Wool (Merino) Color Palais (77436) and it is worked in double seed stitch. Forty-one stitches on size 6 needles. Finished with a braided tie.
I think he likes it. I have enough wool left over to knit a hat, and I've cast on for it. The colors are so pretty I can't resist.
