I also have to carry an Epi-pen (idiopathic anaphylaxis)  I will make one tonight.  thank you for the, well everything.  The only thing that I am going to add is I am going to embroider "Epi-pen" on the outside in a really contrasting color just in case I am unable to function so anyone looking for my info will know what it is and hopefully use it. 
Thanks tons.  Stay safe.

Just an aside: If you do have a disorder that might require a medic/other person to help you if you can't talk to them, it's a really good idea to get a MedicAlert Card/necklace/bracelet.  It is sorta the same as having a piece of paper with your info but is more offical and medics know about it an will (hopefully) look for it. Plus they aren't all ugly, you can get them with pretty beads/charms etc.

Brilliant Idea.
I don't have any allergies but I volunteer as an EMT, and nothing is more fustrating then being unable to find someone's medicine that they need.

duct tape is like the force. There's a light side, and a dark side, and it binds the universe together.

This is so great! My epi-pen is so huge... I heard somewhere that they make some as key chains??

I'll admit it looks a bit... x-rated... when in the case... hehehe... anyhow, I love it! I, too, suffer from peanut allergies.

That's a great idea!  Thank God my little brother has grown out of most of his severe allergies. 

Admission:  I did snicker a little in my head when I saw it.

That's awesome!!! My sister got an epi pen a few months back when she had this freaky allergy to "something" (we still don't know what) that made her throat start to close up. I am SO making her one of these!!!

ah yes the freaky mystery allergy. I had one of those for years until one day i bit in to a pepper pod and my throat swelled shut. mystery solved.

I will admit the cady does look um... phalic in shape. Its kinda un avoidable since the damn epi-pen case is actually shaped like that. its not so obvious on the old style pens. The ones that come in that flimsy plastic tub that cracks at the top of a hat with the metal lid. I think they still use that one in the states but up here in canda we have the spiffy new ones with hard plastic, east off lids and a piece of metal in the base to bend the used needle on. The result is a rounded off cylidner that looks like a 'grown-up' toy...

If you do a stright seam on the bottom instead of the K2tog reduction thing its not as obvious.

I really want to make this for one of my students who had the most terrible nut allergy I've ever heard of, but I couldn't find the yarn you used online to find out the weight of it. Is it sock weight? And what size needles to you use?

I'll just jump in before Michela gets back to answer your question.
In the beginning she said, "I used Eco-Fil Recycled yarn. Its a 25% acrylic, 75% cotton yarn."
(I thought it was just me being computer-dumb when I couldn't find Eco-Fil yarn online.)

What she didn't say was where she got it from.
I've only ever seen it at Walmart - here in Canada anyway.
And only a few Walmarts carry it - at least in my area (in Canada).

Sock weight? I have a sweater pattern for Eco-fil yarn and the gauge mentioned (using 4 mm needles) is 19 sts and 25 rows over
10 cm/4 inches.

Hope that helps.
We can wait for her now.

Happy knitting,
