1  My version of the Chinese Charm Bag in Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller by knit wit on: April 10, 2006 03:09:03 PM
Here is my version, although I haven't added a "charm." The handles are molded plastic with a funky twist. I couldn't find any real bamboo handles for reasonable price, and I didn't like the fakey bamboo ones. The yarn is Red Heart Farmland, nice autumn colors. The lining (see second photo) is from recycled navy boxer shorts (clean!) with matching color. The lining images are State shapes and names..

Yay! I just finished the BBBB baby blanket for my brother and his wife, who are expecting a baby boy April 20!! Just have to mail this now. I followed the pattern, except instead of doing k1p1 as called for, I just did garter stitch for the border on the top and bottom - much easier. It came out smaller than I planned. If I did it again, I would use more colors (like the pretty one by qbmaya, below) but my dad helped me pick out this blue/white yarn.. Cheesy

which yarn color / brand did you use? it came out gorgeous!

Well, I knit this blanket a little while ago and it is quite repetitive.  But, the important thing is that my friend loved it.  Here it is!

I knit it in a cheap acrylic, so the other side has a green cotton lining on it so it can stil be warm, but washable.

after many years troll-free, this little guy caught my eye at a local school fair.. I had to buy him, only a dollar, heck!

after I got him home, and thinking, what will I do with it? he started looking cold, so I knit him a tiny, rainbow scarf to keep him warm. my office mate is always freezing because of the air conditioning and she likes it warm, so I decided this little guy with a scarf would be a perfect present for her... except that now I'm attached and might not be able to give him up yet. Check him out, before, with no scarf only pink undies (which were made by a previous owner, lol), then, after, with his new scarf... so cute!

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

Everyone's cozies look so nice, I was inspired to knit one after getting a Creative Zen nano plus for my birthday. This mp3 player is tiny, about 1.5" by 2.5" or so. Two issues that I recommend considering before starting this project (and two of my friends have already begged me to make them for their ipods): 1. I couldn't do a buttonhole, so I made a little loop for the button. 2. Hole or opening for earphones -next time I would make a hole in the top flap of the cozy - in this current design, the flap has to be open to plug in the earphones. Anyone have creative solutions for connections?

It was so fun to make this!
