This is my newest knitting project. My husband fell into the i-pod craze. He can’t function without his. He is a bit of a music nerd. He used to carry a back pack full of CD to listen to where ever he went. Now with his i-pod, he back is no longer in pain from the weight of music. I used the pattern out of the Stitch and Bitch book. I didn’t stripe my cozy like the pattern said. I used a chunkier yarn that was pretty hard to handle. As you can tell from the pictures, the Velcro hasn’t been the nicest to the yarn. It’s getting a little matted from all of the use it’s getting. When this cozy dies, as it’s bound too because of all the use it’s getting, I will make another in yarn that isn’t so chunky. Hopefully the Velcro won’t eat it as much. I will also try the stripes. I find the S&B book to be a little confusing in it’s directions and will refer to other knitting books for tips. I haven’t used the book enough to really get into it’s groove.
