Knitting Patterns

Computer Sock

Computer SockWanted something simple to cover my new Toshiba netbook, so I grabbed some stash and whipped this up. This netbook is approximately 7″ x 10″, so create accordingly.

I used a worsted weight yarn from Knit Picks and 10.5 circular needles.

CO 60 stitches and join to work in the round.
K2, P2 several rounds to make 1″ to 1.5″ ribbing.
Switch to stockinette stitch for as long as it takes!
Add stripes to make it more interesting.
When you reach the desired length, bind off and then stitch together.

Fun and cushy!

Knitting Patterns

Sudsy Soap Sack

I try to knit simple gifts for my family and friends during the holidays and inevitably start the process about December 15! During 2007, it occurred to me to adapt some beautiful open pattern into a groovy soap bag. A real hit, and took much less time than sewing a whole washcloth!! I gave them away with a nice bar of handmade soap already inside.

Here’s Sudsy Soap Sack. Enjoy!
