FO: Nano Nano

My age is showing....As I was trying to figure out what to name this Robin Williams as "Mork" popped into my head. (Nanu Nanu!)
So Andy was given an iPod nano.
When I got my iPod one of the first things I procured was a Hello Kitty case to carry it in. But, as I'm told often around here, I'm a girl, girls do things like that. Andy being a boy, just shoves his iPod into his pocket.

As such, I decided to do something about it, like a girl :).

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in camouflage

Needles: US 2 to cast on and do a row or two, then US 1s for the rest.

Pattern: From Snitty! (on her sidebar)

Modifications: Well, the nano is WAY smaller than the mini or the original size. I found this out as I first cast on and had knit an inch or two. The nano (I'd stolen it for the evening :)) was not gonna stay tucked in. So, I cast on about 32 instead. I also closed with a 3 needle bind off to give the bottom/seam a little more padding.

It looks so pretty in Lorna's!! I'm glad the sizing didn't give you too much trouble...and I hope it keep his iPod safe and snug!

Great choice of yarn! I think this is just good sense, so the thing doesn't get all banged up :)
