Stocking up!

Wow - I can tell I've been watching too much TV lately...but I can call it work now! I've knitted up 14 more cell phone cozies. It's fun trying to come up with new color combinations and finding new colors of yarn. As I knit one up, I try to "picture" what it will become and decide if I should add fun fur or leave it plain and needle felt on it later.

I recently bought some Cascade 220 for the first time. I think I picked up about 5 colors - two pinks (light & dark), yellow, green, blue (reminds me of demin). When I was checking out, I was accused of taking all their bright colors and leaving that section very dark. It's true - I did take all the brights - there weren't very many of them!

I think I'm going to try something new with this least a few of them. Instead of needle felting (hmmm...maybe along with needle felting) I think I'm going to add some beads right on the cozies...maybe outline a flower/leaf in beads....what do you think?

The plain blue cozies are going to become "jean pockets" to carry your phone or Ipod - this is the one I'm most looking forward to finishing. They are finishing up air drying today...

Probably won't get any finished tomorrow - after work I have an Etsy Street Team meeting...cross our fingers that this one won't be cancelled because of the weather!

Stay tuned for pics or visit my store!
