In an effort to post something more pleasant, here's the flute sack I just knitted
The same cotton/linen yarn I've been using for everything lately (overbought), double strand, sort of a hodgepodge of stitches, sort of sewn up, makeshift drawstring top
And here's my wooden flute. I had to sell online/give to "Uncle Bob" all my other flutes and clarinets. This was the least valuable in terms of selling/pawning, but it has a beautiful tone and a warm feel to it. Wooden flutes don't have to be expensive to be wonderful.
