Emergency Knitting

I stayed up a little late on Sunday evening to knit.

I finished my Baudelaires in BMFA Socktopus.

Suddenly finding myself with nothing better to do, I slogged.

Then I got ready for bed. When I leaned over the sink to wash my face, my iPod fell in and got wet. It was not happy. By morning it had dried out and was working again, but I decided the situation called for a little emergency knitting. So, for those times when I'm not wearing pockets to keep my little iFriend safe and dry, I knitted it its own pocket.

Leftover sock yarns in a 37 stitch miter: BMFA Seduction in Lagoon, BMFA STR Mediumweight in Foofaraw

I am not much of a designer. The bag is about 25% too big, and I forgot to put a control wheel opening in it. But hey, look at the cool bead I found in my stash to use as a button!

I stayed up a little late on Monday night to start the Fleece Artist Baudelaires.

I liked everything about the Baudelaire pattern except the toe. Cookie calls for a figure 8 toe, and I hate figure 8 because you have to tighten the stitches afterwards. This is the Priscilla Gibson-Roberts toe instead. I did make it pointy as the pattern called for, since the friend who'll get these has skinny pointy feet. But I think mine would have fit better with the snubbier toe I usually knit.

I may have stayed up late to knit a little too often. Is it just me, or do those sock toes look like they need a bra?

Last month I worked on The Penis Sock, this month you are doing The Breast Socks. Too funny.

I wish my bra-needing anatomy looked as nice as those sock toes.

The little bag is so cute!
I need one of those. I will do some emergency knitting around here. Thanks for the mittered squares idea.
