Snug as a bug in a rug

I love a geek craft opportunity :)

So, when the lovely @SimonBegg treated me to a new iPad, I immediately got my knitting needles out. Now, I love a bit of tech but it doesn’t really feel like mine till I’ve knitted it a jumper (just ask my phone, kindle, iPod etc etc)

For my iPad I wanted to make sure the end product was thick and snug enough to offer a bit of protection from bumps. I found the best way to do this was to use super chunky wool with 5mm needles. It was a real pain to knit with because the needles were so small for this gauge of yarn (I should have been using at least 10mm) but worth it!

I used two and a bit balls of wool for the whole thing and because I had to use different colours, decided to contrast the stitching completely.

What I like about the end result is that it’s like a blank canvas where I can embroider flowers n stuff as I find the time… I feel a craft hour coming on :)
