in which we cut our losses
July 1, 2012
Pomatomus sock that was never going to get finished + vintage button = cozy Blackberry sleeve!
Maybe this will keep me from pocket dialing Bob all the time, which I did three times in one night while on a trip to Toledo (racking up both long distance AND roaming charges; yikes!). If nothing else, it will single me out as the nerdiest at that moment during every restaurant meal when all the people at the table disengage from conversation and start beeping and booping on their devices.
Yarn: Trekking XXL, colour 495
Mods: Step one, start the sock, fall in love with the pattern as you knit really quickly to the ankle, get distracted by some other shiny thing and let it sit in a bag somewhere for seven years.
Step two, unravel to the length of your phone, divide the stitches onto two needles and close the bottom with a three-needle bind off.
Step three, pick up a couple of stitches at the cast on edge, knit a wee flap, stick a buttonhole in it. Sew on a button. Slide your phone in, button it shut, congratulate yourself and sally forth, free of expensive and annoying pocket dials.
