The Year of the Cozies
The one year I make all of my loved ones knitted gifts coincides with FedEx producing a snarky commercial about Nana knitting cozies. I fell into factory mode around August knitting my grandson a sweater and it blossomed into a gift making frenzy from there with plenty of giggling from my family when the commercial started airing. Five scarves, one shawl, five kindle cozies and three felted purses. I’m in a rush to start and finish one more kindle cover by Wednesday for my daughter in-law.
The Kindle covers are made using a method called locker hooking with a great tutorial from here. I had some design ideas I wanted to use from a few Fair Isle patterns that I found on Ravelry. The process is enjoyable and depending on how you stitch your design there are a lot of different ways to achieve the same goal.
Locker hooked fabric is for making rugs and the result is a light weight, cushioned material great for protecting electronic items.
