Hi, it's my first post in here. >.>

Anyway, I taught myself to knit (sort of) about three weeks ago, and I'm working on my scarf. But my friend gave me some excellent yarn for my birthday, and I wanted to make something out of it. Unfortunately, it's only one ball, so nothing big. And my only set of needles have a scarf on them that's nearly finished - I've hit the knot of all knots, you see.

So I made myself an ipod cozy.
Well, nearly an ipod cozy. I'm waiting for my buttons to harden (I made them myself...) so I can paint them and put them on, and I'm deciding on thread to sew the sides together.
But for all intents and purposes, it's my first knit project! -cheers-

Don't laugh. >.>

I present to you - the almost cozy! Cheesy



Ignore my hair, it's gone a bit mad and I've given up on it today.
I'll update here tomorrow when things have dried and have been sewn together. But I was excited. lol

It seems that different people have an idea of what I am, and what I should be. And then there's me.

Haha, thanks!
I haven't quite managed purling yet, but I keep trying. lol
I hope to have it up in the morning tomorrow. I'm going to the Twilight party tonight and I'll be finishing it there. xD
