FO Friday – iPad case!

It’s been a while since I did an FO Friday. Things at Plutonium Muffins HQ have been busy! JS and I have been working on my first pattern basically non-stop. I’ve got ten test-knitters working on it now – one of them from Ravelry has been incredibly helpful and I’ve been trying to sort out the final file so I can publish it. Unfortunately, there are a few maths bugs that I need to sort out, especially conversions between inches and centimetres…but we will get there eventually.

I have finished one of my test knit pieces – an iPad Case.

Colourful Gadget iPad Case

This was knit in a self-striping double-knitting yarn called “Yarnfair Stripes”. I’m not sure where I got it from – found it in my stash and as the word of the year is ‘stash-busting’, I decided to use it. I obviously had designs for this yarn – I had bought four balls of it! Anyway, I will decide what to do with the extra three balls later.

The iPad case took up pretty much a whole ball – with just enough left over to make some hexipuffs. I don’t want to review the pattern too much – after all, it’s mine! The yarn was gorgeous. Soft to work with, I love the way the stripes came out, and it matched this pattern really well.

I’m not sure if the case is actually going to fit an iPad. There is a slight flaw with my maths, and JS took his iPad before I could test it. He’s away for a weekend at a conference, so I won’t get it back for a while.

Stripey! Would also make a lovely scarf.

I’m interested to know how long you would estimate this takes to knit? I timed it to the minute, and I was absolutely shocked when I got the final results. Knitting by hand takes a loooong time! Much longer than I thought, anyway!

Right, I’m going to work on my graphics a bit more. I hope you are all doing well. Don’t forget to enter the Nadalittas Bag Giveaway!

Much love,
