Soon after Christmas, I upgraded from a Blackberry Curve to an iPhone 4s. That’s a big upgrade–and I am so happy. I can’t afford the iPhone 5, however nice it might be; besides, compared to a Blackberry Curve, this is new fangled, high-tech stuff. Since I have been using a school issued iPad and MacBook Air, the transition was a piece of cake, and I already had a full arsenal of apps in my iCloud.
What I didn’t have was a case. After doing a Facebook survey regarding insurance, most of the response said skip it, but get a good case. A friend said I could try an Otterbox Defender before I bought, but before she could get that to me, I needed something quick to keep the phone from getting scratched in my purse. What to do in such a predicament? Knit one, of course. So I did…on the drive to and from Costco (about 30 minutes). And while it is a little crooked, the bulky yarn does a good job protecting it.
Isn’t it cute? I love that I learned how to knit. I find myself examining the pattern of anything I see knit…especially scarves and hats. I will see something, and think (with a silent scoff), “Why buy that? I could knit it…” My husband does the same thing whenever we see anything nice made out of wood: “We don’t need to buy that; I could build it.”
I feel a bit silly even providing a pattern for this…if I could make it up, so could any novice knitter, I think.
But here it is anyway: Quick and Easy Mobile Phone Case
I have since purchased my own Otterbox Defender. I love everything about the case but the air bubbles between the screens. I’ve googled solutions without success. I may actually cut the protector screen off and use another film protector…or just go back to my knit cozy.
I feel the same way about things made out of wood. I tend to have an over-inflated view of my abilities, but it always seems easy…… except for that need for precise measurement.
I don’t think it is about ability as much as time…the time to measure correctly?
