Furry Palm / iPod Case Pattern

unfun-fur.gif = picture this furry mess folded in half.  pout.

On a whim, and in my haste to knit something small, I ordered some Lion Brand Fun Fur the other day for the Sound System Snuggler pattern from Knitty. It arrived this morning... I ordered two skeins of Citrus and some cotton yarn for the underbelly, as it were. The colors were quite different from the photo on the JoAnn website, but then what can one expect buying yarn online - more mint chocolate chip than rich and jungly. Since the new mini hasn't arrived, I tried a case for my Palm. It's now done except for the finishing and addition of a button. And... I really dislike it, in particular the color, but also the furry thing just doesn't do it for me. Ah well. I still think it would have been much cooler in brighter, darker green-and-yellow fur. Can you believe the difference in color? It's not just my camera or monitor...

i have to laugh - i did the exact same pattern in the exact same color...i love my headphone snugglies - but absolutely despise the ipod case. adding the final button only added to my distaste. (sigh).

The pic looks cool anyway, but yes, you must love it to want to use it. In this week's newsweek there was a big ol article about the iPod and a sidebar of leather designer iPod cases; made me feel all inspired to sew up a case for mine.
