i finished this awhile ago but just got around to sewing on the buttons.

it's a matching knit sleeve for my baby... aka my pink vaio laptop. knit in a stockinette tube, with the help of knitpro for the graph. the bottom is closed with kitchener stitch and the flap is in seed stitch.

back


my baby taking a nap, peeking out from her blanket


i feel like it might still be missing something.... i don't know what though.

hope you like it! comments/feedback appreciated!

vaio is watching you.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

oh my god jinn i love that... it looks almost eerily like the face i added right before i read your post... how crazy.

here's a new pic of the updated cutesy monster laptop sleeve (i preface this with: i havent crocheted in years. i just thought it would be the easiest way to add teeth. in the future i'll probably rip them out and use felt or knit some... but these will do for now)


look, he can wink  Wink



thanks for the help, guys!

ps. crocodisle-- thanks! Smiley in case you can't tell in the pictures the buttons are actually oversized white buttons under pink novelty buttons.
