I managed to lose the protective sleeve to my mini scale the other day. Bummer.
But I found this cute Herringbone iPhone Cosy pattern by Brent Annable that fit my scale perfectly. I just knit it just as the pattern specified, but with some leftover yarn that I used for my slippers.
This turned out perfectly and makes me happy whenever I look at it. It also protects the scale since it’s thick and squooshy. In fact, I think it’s better than the original lost sleeve that came with the scale.
For being my first real colorwork project, I think my tension was just right!
I used the new Addi FlexiFlips for this project and really like them. You just knit with the stitches on just two needles and knit with the third. No laddering and I didn’t poke myself with the ends. I also like it that the ends have on each end a sharp and a blunt tip so you can choose with the needle you’re using to knit with.
Stay tuned for a couple of new patterns that I’ve been working on behind the scenes for handspun and art yarn!
