Up first, a knitted iPad case.
Pattern: "Cabled iPad Sleeve" by haramis designs
Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers in colorway 2442 (a natural oatmeal-like color)
Needle: US 8
I know, it looks miniscule. How could that ever fit an iPad?! But it has been tested and approved on a borrowed iPad. I was rather nervous making this at first, since I don't have an iPad and had to wait to be able to test it out. Thankfully, it stretches out beautifully and the cables are lovely (although I reduced the number). I added two extra buttons for a total of three as I felt it would be more secure. Birthday project #1, done!
Next, a beanie.
Pattern: "Skyping Beanie" by Halldora
Yarn: Green Mountain Spinnery Cotton Comfort in colorway Storm
Needles: US 4, US 6
Lastly, another slouchy hat.
Pattern: "Starry-Eyed Slouch" by Stepen West
Yarns: Green Mountain Spinnery Cotton Comfort in colorway Storm (used throughout)
Madelinetosh Merino Light, Iris (a deep blue) and Mica (light blue)
Madelinetosh Sock , I think it was Composition Book but not completely sure
Unknown yarn that was given to me, perhaps tencel?
So, this one is for my other brother. He's quite a hip and stylish kind of guy, so hopefully this will suit his aesthetic taste. I left off the stars and the pompom but I have an idea for another one using more leftover yarn that would use the stars.
Wait! I said 4 gifts, right? Well, the last one is for an art lover who kindly appreciates my work. But it's not done yet!
