My friend who’s hopefully, very soon, going to India to work for a few months has just bought herself an mp3 player. It’s tiny – just a glorified USB memory stick really. So I thought I’d knit her a little draw string pouch to keep it in.
I have to admit that whilst it is only simple – I ended up starting it over about 5 times, because I didn’t cast on the right number of stitches, used the wrong needle size, started ribbing but changed my mind.
I got there in the end though. 36 stitches on 3mm needles, just plain stocking stitch.
I was particularly pleased with the drawstring bit – not having done this before I just sort of made it up. I got the idea of how to do the holes from the lace work on the baby cardigan I knitted a while ago. Then Mum showed me how to crochet the yarn for the string bit. So that’s another new skill I’ve learnt this week!
I took it over to my friend last night and she thought it was so cool! I was really pleased. It’s great knitting gifts isn’t it?
