Hmm not sure if I'm answering this question right cos I don't think I understand it, I need sleep!   Cheesy
2.25mm needles are size 1 US equivelent needle size, and DPNS is double pointed needles, so basically I knit it in the round. 
Hope that helps... Huh

Here's my second ipod cozy, completed during the superbowl...Used some super nice blue-green wool had a thick/thin quality. It's a bit funky, and you can see my stitching because after sewing the sides together, the seam was too bulky! We named it the ipod sea cucumber, because it turned out to be a bit longer than expected. On the bright side, this means that my friend can tuck in her (collapsible) headphones. Stuffed with ipod and headphones, the cozy takes on a funny shape ... like a sea cucumber. Here in Hawaii we see plenty of those, so seems natural....

My friend took some shots of it in its "natural habitat"  Roll Eyes

That's great! I love that you used felt, great idea. And so much better than the ones you find in stores, those, are boring.

I decided to combine a couple of the projects in my SNB book (finally found one - is every book store in Los Angeles sold out? Congrats to Debbie!) - I really love the felting on the marsupial, but I wanted a cozy for my iPod.

I used blue/green wool that I didn't much like after I got it home - pretty colors, but I didn't like the weight (worsted?) and it knit up into blocky weird splotches. So I garter-stitched a 4x16" rectangle, turned up 6", stitched up the sides, and tossed it in a lingerie bag and into the hot wash (x2) and cold rinse (x1).

Unfortunately, the length shrunk a LOT more than the width, so it was either going to end up too wide, or really a lot too short. But I wanted to check out the felting (I'm fascinated, I don't know why), and I wasn't happy with how not felted it was after rounds 1 and 2 in the washer. So I popped it in again for 2 more washes and one more rinse. Super tight!  But felted Smiley  So I stretched it, and pulled on it, and yanked on it, until it (barely) covered my iPod. And the color is much better, and much brighter than the pictures show.

I'm pretty pleased. My first non-scarf project! Still a rectangle, but I think I'm ready to graduate to Tank Girl.

So now to pick a button - any suggestions?
I'm thinking the button will be decorative, and I'll stitch a snap underneath. No velcro, though... velcro + dreads = potential pain Wink

I made a little red turtleneck sweater for my ipod nano.. the poor thing looked a bit cold..  Smiley





It is inspired by lbdancer123's post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81628.0
But I made the pattern myself.  I wrote it up as I went along if anyone is interested.  Smiley

Great jobs everyone!  I especially love rockstr009's Noro case.. BEAUTIFUL!
