Ian’s socks finished and a cozy for my Zune

Posted in Knitting tagged , , , at 8:00 am by dianelaces

Finished Ian’s socks on Sunday night and he wore them to school on Monday.  The next pair of socks I work on will be recreating a knee-high cabled sock that a gentleman wears with his Norwegian costume.  I’m looking forward to starting that project as soon as the yarn arrives from Knit Picks.

Here is Ian modeling his socks.

I received a Zune mp3 player for Christmas that I absolutely love and never leave home without it.  I’m addicted to podcasts and I think the Zune manages them better than any other mp3 player.  Because I’m scared of scratching it and banging it around, I decided to knit a felted cozy for it that I can hang around my neck.  The pattern came from Knit Picks and I had to downsize it quite a bit because the ipod it was designed for is larger than my Zune.  It works well, but it’s not the ideal solution for me.  I’m glad I finished it, even though my sister rolled her eyes when she saw it 😉

This is the case before I cut the openings.

After cutting.  The zune screen goes so close to the edge of the device that it leaves very little left.  I also oriented the zune upside down so I can just flip it up and look at it.  And the headphone cable comes out of the bottom of the device.
