colourful knitting

A very quickly finished object.

A cozy fluffy sleeping bag for my new camera phone.

Pattern: my own, using the sl1 k1 heel reforcing stitch.

Yarn: Richard Poppleton Eclipse chunky with mohair

Needles: 4.5mm dpns

Date: 4 November 2005

Very satisfying to think of an object and then have it knitted a few hours later. It took me a few attempts to get the buttonhole right and I'm still not quite happy with it. Perhaps if I knit a few more of these to give away I'll perfect it.

How did you make the button hole? Sounds clever.
