On today's show, geek chic rules with three cute cozies for the technological gadgets in your life. With some expert advice from today's guest, Betsy McCall of ShizKnits and Crystal Palace Yarns, we're covering up an MP3 player. Then we'll knit a fableous Aesop-inspired lion and mouse cover for your computer monitor and mouse.
Knit-O-Meter Rating: Beginner.
Crystal Palace Yarns Deco-Ribbon (125 Tangerine )
Crystal Palace Yarns Fizz (Tangerine 7301)
9" single-point bamboo needles, size 10-3/4
hair elastic with plastic bobbles
*Remember, many yarns are seasonal and could be discontinued. If the specific yarn called for is not available, purchase a substitution yarn that comes closest to the specified gauge in your pattern. And be sure to make that all-important swatch to see whether the yarn works for your particular pattern.
1. Carrying both yarns together as one, CO 9 sts and work in St st until the work measures 8-1/4" (figure A). Bind off.
2. Fold in half and sew the long edges together, creating a sleeve with an opening at the top.
3. Gently push one end of the bobble hair elastic between the second and third rows. Put each bobble through one at a time, one set to the front of the cozy and one set to the back.
Whether you're a computer whiz or just someone who enjoys watching TV, this anything-but-ferocious monitor cover does the trick.
