Thank you! I like your bugs a lot, too--especially the punk rocker! I also really like the grass on your website. I have been brainstorming for a website recently and I, also want to incorporate grass in the theme. How was the punk rock craft fair?
First there was the iPod Sock....now meet the Athletic Sock. The new-fangled Athletic Sock meets all your high-tech running needs and allows you to use your favorite, stylin' pair of running shoes at the same time. The Nike+ does not require pressure for an accurate reading. It measures accurately while securely mounted on the front of your laces.
Another bonus: this is an ultra-quick knit project that will use up some of that yarn scrap you can't bear to toss.
I think in black it looks something like a grenade. I added the key ring to increase the functionality and grenade-like appearance.
That's right--you don't have to have those nike shoes to use your iPod running thing-a-ma-giggy. Couldn't they have come up with a better name for this thing? Anyways....here is my rendition of a ladybug case for it. It snaps closed with a snap in each corner and has a strap on the back for your shoes laces to run through. The ladybug meets all of your high-tech running needs and allows you to use your favorite, stylin' pair of running shoes at the same time. The Nike+ does not require pressure for an accurate reading--I swear. It measures accurately while securely mounted on the front of your laces.
I'm so glad you're making yourself a monster! I'm sure another color wheel could look great--give your new monster a cute cream or black tummy, for instance! I used a fabric called ultrasuede that is generally found around the upholstery fabrics. Any other thin, durable, non-strechy frabric should work, too. Just take your ipod to the fabric store with you and try it out. Heck, I'm long used to getting crazy looks from peeps around the store:)
I'm stuck in San Jose, too. If you don't feel like the drive to SF, but don't mind the caltrain, I would suggest going to Discount Fabrics. Its just three blocks from from the end-of-the-line stop in SF. Easy, decent prices and a much better selection than what you'll find around here.
