Second post in a month... something must be wrong, lol

Wow, I managed to post before the beginning of Feb...

So anyways I have decided to stop using my pattern blog, (while gosh darn it, it's not like I had more then one pattern on there). But happy, happy, joy, joy, I do have a new pattern to post on here. (While actually more like guidelines for a project then anything)

So a little back ground, I bought a 5th Generation Ipod Nano a couple of weeks ago. This weekend I went looking around for a cover for it that I liked, and would be pratical. Alas no such thing existed here in New West, so what does a crafty girl do, make her own of course. I went to the other side of my room, looked at my stash, picked out the perfect yarn (not wool cause it's acrylic), pick up a hook and started crocheted. So without further ado here is the pattern

Carol's Quicky Ipod Cover

Yarn: Bernat Softee Bouncle
Hook: US H (5mm)

Gauge: Tight (cause I hate making gauge swatches)


Ch 7

Row 1: 3 sc in second ch from hook, sc in next 4 chs, 3 sc in last ch, working on the reverse side, sc in next 4 chs, join.

Row 2-as long as you want it: sc in each sc around, join.

When the cover is as high as you would like it to be, cut yarn and weave in ends.

I think including writing up this post the cover took me less then an hour to make.

Now that I have a working camera I have posted a pic :)

So far it's been an "exciting" year

So this morning as I was getting ready to leave work for the day, "exciting" event number one happened. Just now event number two took place.

At 7ish yesterday morning a couple of African America (ok I want to write Canadian instead) males were dropped of by a taxi cab that sped away. Less then 5 minutes later the cops showed up. We had just denided them a room and had called another cab for them. Just as their new cab showed up, so did the cops. Cab goes away, cops bust the guys for posession, but they aren't arrested.

Just now there was some sort of fire next door at the car wash. I wouldn't have known about it if one of the guests hadn't called me to tell me about it. I've been keeping a eye on our property to make sure that nothing goes wrong here.

I hope tomorrow night I don't have to deal with EMS, keeping my fingers crossed.
