My first knitting!

Added Sep 25, 2008

Halle, Germany






So, I started knitting and as you can see, it’s still hard for me :D It is so different from sewing! So I made these two little bags, one for my mobile to close with snap-fastener and one for my iPod to close with a simple button (to knit button holes is another chapter … ). I made a “little buttonhole” for the earphones in the iPod-bag (genius!). Both bags were put together with crocheting on the sides. The iPod-bag I did the second time, because I ironed the first and it got much too long. There is another heart on the back.
I think the imperfection makes them charming ;)

Material Notes

75% polyacryl 25%wool yarn, a snap-fastener and a button





my mom for showing me how to knit and crochet (I’d never get that through a book!) and a knitting book for inspiration with the heart-pattern
