Thank you! I thought long and hard about those pockets. I think she'll only use them for tissues, but I wanted them to be hardy. The basketweave pattern felt a little stronger than a straight stockinette - but who knows? Plus she loves thatched roof cottages, and this gave them a feel of that. I decided to pick up stitches at the bottom and add them that way, vs. at the top of the ribbing or as patch pockets. It seemed a more natural location, and a little cleaner than stitching on patch pockets.
