 Aside from shortening the strap, I like the way this turned out.  I bring water with me everywhere, so I plan on getting some use out of it.  If it looks a little sloppy, well this is my first time with dpns other than finishing off a hat.  I should have started the ribbing on the body a little sooner, but I wasn't really stopping to measure that often.  Anyhow, here it is.

Ok, I think it looks a little better IRL.  The photo came out a lil funny.  Smiley

Cute and practical!  I'm scared of dpns and impressed that you used them for this.  What yarn did you use?

Thanks guys!

Curlymo, I used Hot Socks yarn that I got from herrschners.  I think it's on sale right now.  If you check out my blog it's got all kinds of details about the yarn, the process, everything.

Since I've posted this, I've actually frogged the entire strap up to the card holder.  The garter stitch border wasn't doing it for me.  It looked too raggedy.  I redid the border and now it looks nice and neat.  More pics of the newer version will be on my blog as soon as I finish it.
