Here's a project that was long in the making, but almost as long in getting it photographed and blogged about! After my three-week knitting class in January, I needed an easy project to try so The Leopard suggested that I knit a pouch for his digital recorder. He uses the recorder at gigs so he can listen afterwards and work to improve his set, as well as to post some of his live music on his blog. It didn't come with a case though, so he wanted something to protect it while it's kicking around in his bag. I found some nice yarn in the colour he requested and set to work. It started off pretty well, but I worked at it very slowly. February was filled with packing up our flat in London and getting ready for our trip and March was spent *on* our trip, so I didn't get back to it until April when we were back in Canada.
At the end of April, the pouch looked like this:
I finished it in early May and stitched it together (which was as easy as I had hoped!). However, I didn't have anything appropriate to thread through the drawsting holes I made. I used some satin yellow ribbon as a temporary measure (so The Leopard could use it), but it really didn't suit it of course. I finally made it to Fabricland a few weeks ago and found some cool cord that was the right thickness. I'd love to find some thicker leather cord in a darker colour, but this will definitely do for now.
Here's the completed pouch in all it's glory!
It's not perfect, but it works! Need to keep up with the knitting though - I've really been neglecting it these days. I think I need an easy project that uses big needles and thick yarn. And isn't too hot to work with in the summer. Is that even possible? I'll do some research and get back to you on that.
