I made this in a couple of hours for my grandmother's birthday.  The only reason it took that long was the sewing part--I was at the beach and so had to hand stitch the lining.  I remembered her birthday while I was on vacation, so this was very thrown together using whatever I could find on short notice.  I think it turned out pretty well, all things considered.  The black loop for the button is sort of icky, but I figured it would be easier for her to see than one made of the same yarn I knit with.

Thanks for the kind words.  I wish I knew what kind of yarn it was.  I bought it at a little knitting store at the beach and it was not labelled.  It was a twist of some variegated thick-n-thin yarn with metallic thread and a wispy, thin mohair.  I wish I had gotten more to make something for myself.  The lining I added after someone pointed out that the side arms on the glasses would probably get stuck in the knit stitches and pull on them.
