Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

iPod Pocket

A few months ago I gave in to the iPod craze. I used to regard them as my nemesis. Do you know how many times I chatted people up in my dorm elevator... only to realize they couldn't hear a word as they were plugged into their ear-buds? It doesn't exactly make you feel cool.

But when I bought my new computer I gave in and added the 80GB Classic to the mix. Now on my long drives between Bellingham and Vancouver Ira Glass and Dan Savage keep me company. Plus I don't have to fumble with cds. Basically, I'm happy.

So my iPod makes my life easier and I repay it by keeping it in a sock. Until yesterday.

At home sick and bored bored bored, I turned to the sewing machine. I kinda had to redeem myself after a certain sewing project last April. You see, I hate to sew. I don't have the patience. But I always get ideas... and convince myself I can do them... and then, well... then it's last April and there's a pillowcase project consuming me.

Needless to say, this tiny project was much smoother. I just made a little pocket out of felt, and attached a heart for cuteness.

This little heart was originally to be a musical note, but that ended up being a little hard to produce with felt. Hearts are easy.

When I'm back with all my crafting supplies, I think I might add a little strap of elastic to keep it from sliding out when in my purse.

Wow, that's really adorable. I too have the iPod, and even the iPhone. The later I soon realized I couldn't live without. It's heaven sent. I have long drives to work each day, and use mine for playing audible books. This is great as I can get some reading into my life without sacrificing knitting time to read and turn pages.

Happy New Year!

I got a new ipod after christmas and I love it. I need to make some kind of sock. Problem with the iPod touch is it ends up covered in finger prints LOL.
