One late night one Mr. Dorian Starr was out with his friends when knitting iPod cases came up in conversation.  Dorian went on to point out the rising fad of creating iPod cases.  He noted that it would be much more impressive if someone made sleeves for their headphones.  Not those silly little things that make headphones look like ear muffs.  "If that's the look they want, that's fine.  But if I make something for my iPod it will have the class that an iPod demands," Dorian said.  A few days later he decided to take himself up on the challenge and make something worthy of an iPod.  His results are as follows.

That's an awesome idea!  I don't personally have an iPod or anytype of MP3 player for that matter, but if I did I'd most certainly copy your idea!  It's actually been in the news recently to conceal your iPods because some girl in Toronto was beat up and had hers stolen from her when she got off the bus, so hiding those distinctive white wires is a perfect idea!

That's a good idea. i'm currently making a friend a squid-ish cozy for her mp3 player. I wonder if she'd let me try this... Was it particularly hard?

I'm a novice knitter so this might be a really dumb question.....  Embarrassed

But.... did you knit around your cords/wires or did you knit the sleeves then thread the wires/headphone through the sleeves?

We figured you could do it either way......but were not sre which way worked out best for you.

It wasn't so hard really, a little confusing in the beginning.  It took me a few hours all together.  I essentially knitted an i-cord around the head phone wire.  It got a little tricky when the wires split because I had to increase and what not without it looking funky...

very nice work!

hmmm...  I wonder if it'd keep the wires warm.  sometimes walking to class it gets so cold that my walkman wires freeze and get all hard.  I'm afraid one day they'll crack because of it.

Awesome job!!  I'm just a bit confused about how to go about inc at the "fork in the wire".  Would you mind going into more detail??


I'm back after a long time away and trying to find time to craft as I adjust to life as a mom!

this is one of the smartest ideas i've seen in a while! i am definitely going to be trying this.

i second the question about the fork in the wire... especially since my headphones are not apple and the fork is even weirder (one headphone is longer than the other)
