iPod cozy, here I come!

I’m a crafter in addition to being a knitter (one just kind of follows the other, doesn’t it?). Also, my iPod recently died a sad death, and so I recycled it and bought a new one, which is black and shiny and beautiful and scratches easily and doesn’t fit in my iPod cozy.

So I went to etsy.com to search for a new one. After looking through ~90 options, in my usual fashion I decided that I could do a much better job (mind you, I haven’t tested this theory yet) and sat down and drew up my own design. Then today, as if to reassure me that I had indeed made the correct decision, I stumbled upon this beauty of a blog post (links to the Design*Sponge post via the photo):

Well, I must say. This is quite something, and I want one desperately, and so I’m going to make my iPod cozy in much the same way (I’d kind of started along those lines, but the process is going to change somewhat). I had thought to knit it originally, but I kind of want to do something different, and so the husband and I are taking a trip to the fabric store this weekend to pick up supplies and whatnot.

{Do you want to know my secret guilty pleasure? I love buying thread. Not yarn – thread. I really do.}

At this rate, I’m never going to finish my socks.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

  1. Actually, more like needle lace (I learned at an Arts & Sciences event a month or so ago). Although in this case, it’s sewing thread. It’s an unnatural attraction.

    I’m glad you like the links! I’ll try to keep it up…

    Thread = Tatting? 🙂

    Loving your links lately. You somehow managed to link to the new Knitty on the one day I hadn’t checked it yet! I now have to knit this: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring08/PATTmarjorie.html, but with the fantastic verigated teal alpaca I bought for another sweater last year, that I ended up not liking the pattern for.

    I need to update my yarn geeking soon, I’ve been a busy bunny.
