A New Toy

The last 2 weeks had been crazy - I could not blog or knit very much & I really miss my normal life. We had an exchange student from Reunion Island staying with us & we had so much activities going on & I was driving around like a mad woman ! Anyway, she left on Sunday & life is slowly returning back to normal.

I don't have any FO to show except this .....




Guess what's inside this little pouch .......

..... it's my new toy - an iPod Touch, the funnest iPod ever & it is ! I have wanted this for a long time & when the new version was released with a speaker, I knew I had to have it. The opportunity arrived last Saturday when Myer had a 10% discount off all iPods & I immediately dashed there to buy one.
As it's the latest model, accessories were not available so I knitted my own pouch ! I love it ! I used my favorite yarn, Zen Yarn Garden seawool (I still had a little left over) & chose the Crossover Rib pattern (I had wanted to knit this stitch for sometime) from Sensational Knitted Socks - I love this combination of yarn & pattern & it will look great on a pair of socks but unfortunately I don't have any seawool in my stash (sigh.....)
I cast on 40 sts with 2.5mm dpns & knitted it in the round. Did a 3 needle bind off except for 6 sts so that there is an opening for the ear piece (although I don't think I will need this as I can use the speaker). That's it - my own iPod Touch pouch !
