My boys (10 and7) are Heelys crazy.
They wear them everywhere  but the problem is that a bunch of places have forbidden them.  So they are constantly popping out their wheels.  I'm totally freaked out that they are going to loose the wheels.  They're like $30 a set!  I already put out $100 on the shoes!  So,, what's a knittin' mama to do?  Make a frickin' cozy of course! LOL




I lined it with the fabric in the background shown in picture 2 for stability and durability.  This is the first time I dared put any knitting under my sewing machine and it worked beautifully!  I may never hand sew in a lining again! The chart is crap, I took some artistic license with the logo.  The bag is loosely based on the magknits pattern http://www.magknits.com/Nov05/amulet.htm  I used some crazy unknown acrylic from my stash.  I think it's Bernat Chunky on size 5 DPNs
They love it, now I have to make another.

That is really cool.  I'm jealous of kids that have Heelys.  I so want a pair, even though I think I would look weird 'skating' around campus on those.  Wink

Yeah, I've tried out my son's pair and I'm too much of a dork to figure it out.  It's really good excersize tho!  My boys are constantly sweaty everywhere we go.  Boys are so gross tho!  Grin

So that's what those things are called...the kids around here wear them everywhere! Making a little bag for the wheels is such a good idea- especially since kids are so much more likely to do what you want them to if you give them something special to do it with.
