Last year I gave my nephew an iPod mini for his birthday. Apparently, he has only disconnected from it to take a shower… he also got the Apple iSock, which he promptly “misplaced” very shortly thereafter. On his recent visit here two weeks ago, he wanted to buy himself a new iSock, but they only come in sets of 6. So he continued to get his iPod scratched, to my dismay… over the weekend it occurred to me, while I was rearranging my sock yarn (I love doing that!) and I found all these.
What to do with all that leftover sock yarn- cause you know you got some!
iSocks!!! I know its not such an original idea(...) but next Xmas, everybody on my list with an ipod (just about everybody…) is getting an iSock. So I whipped up my newly purchased 2 24” US1 needles, which I got at my LYS (I love having a LYS 3 blocks from my house…) for knitting two socks at once. (that was the problem I had with socks. I don’t like to knit the same exact thing twice, which is why some of my favorites always come in some kind of variation.) and cast on for the two at once iSocks. I figured it would be good practice for real socks.
Barbara showed me how to do it.
Here is what I did:
With the US1, Regia sock yarn, I cast on 50, a little rib and I used a K3, P1 rib, but the possibilities are endless. I did a 3 needle bind off for the Regia. I also made one with a flap from leftover Elann yarn from the reversible hat I made for my son. I did a Kitchener stitch for closing this one. Aren’t they cute? They can be used for all your gadgets.
