Joke of the day

The joke of the day on my cell phone is:
How many sheep does it take to make a sweater?

None... Sheep can't knit.

iPod Cozy crazy?

Talk about a fun and fast project! The brown one is 20 stitches in K1, P1 rib on DPN until it's long enough for the iPod. Cast off and sew in the ends. I used suede like yarn - no details the ball band is long gone.

The blue one is made with Cascade Fixation with 24 stitches on straight needles (K1, P1) then seamed up the sides when I thought it was long enough. I'm going to pull it out and redo it on DPN so I only have a bottom seam. I don't really like the way the K1, P1 rib came out with the seams. I will probably use only 20 stitches as well, it's al ittle big for my taste.

These are for my 2 sons to help protect their iPod screens.

Swift and Ball Winder

Part of my wonderful Christmas gifts was this wooden swift hand made by my Dad! It's not only beautiful to look at, but it works wonderfully! With some Christmas money I purchased the ball winder and managed to wind 4 balls on the first try with no tangles or problems. Teenagers make wonderful winders. :-) I almost want to go re-wind everything in my stash just so it stacks so nicely but I must refrain... too many others things need doing around here.
