I admit it. I’m a sucker for new toys that are small and cute. An iPad mini for instance. I bought one. Did I need one? Of course not. But I really really wanted one.
I also bought a blue front cover to keep the screen safe. That’s not enough protection though because the back could still become scratched and the front cover can come away from the screen while in my bag or purse. I needed to knit a cover for it. ‘tuurlijk.
I looked through my knitting books to find some nice cable patterns to give the bulky yarn even more bulk. I intended to make the whole thing in the bright green but I didn’t have enough yarn for that. I like the blue and green together though. The button made of bone and was bought at the Handwerkbeurs in Zwolle a couple of years ago.
I think the whole envelope look is pretty cute. It took me no time at all to make, with yarn from stash (dyed myself this past summer). I’ll get LOTS of use out of it. And, btw, I LOVE my mini.
