Begun as a Knitted Sock

...except it did not end as a pair of socks.  Somehow my right hand took a beating and is bruised, likely due to pure clumsiness.  And I did not want that sock to just hang around incomplete, knowing it would take a while for the bruise to diminish and the knitting to resume.  Also, rather than start those socks with a special sock yarn, I was being frugal and trying to use up some silk/wool yarn in a 50/50 blend, not smart for sock knitting.

So rather than waste the prior effort in knitting a rather striking sock designed by Cookie A. and found here on Knitty, it was turned into another accessory.

This is Cookie A. (above site) showing off her cute socks she designed.

After two rows of the lace repeat design, I bound off the sock start and added an I cord with a third color sock yarn to produce none other than an iTouch holder.

more about Cookie
Cookie is a knitting addict living in Northern California. She is particularly prone to sock yarn impulse purchasing and knitting, has a darling cat named after a mathematician, and is in search of the most whack haircut ever.


  1. I keep looking at my knitting in progress that has come to an awful halt-maybe more than one project in that condition....and then to see your lovely stuff-well, I am inspired-so I will try to knit at least an hour today!

  2. Gosh you do go for some complicated looking patterns! I have just got a beginners knitting project book but it's early days yet.

  3. Glad you were able to save it. I love the Monkey sock pattern as I had made a pair.
    Sorry your hand's hurt. Ouchie! Take it easy and slow down.

    1. Oops! Hit publish by accident! Should read "love the humorous description of Cookie"

    2. Also hoping your hand is better! Guess I need to get my comment act together.

  5. Sorry about your injury:(. Love the sockpurse. Hugs

  6. Cute! Cookie is funny! I like her style!
    I wish I was addicted to knitting socks!

  7. That is really clever! I truly do not enjoy knitting socks - I loath dpns, magic loop's not so bad, but then you have to knit a second one! - but one of these I'd have the patience for.

    Hope the hand is better x

  8. I love this! might have to copy you the next time I start a sock and have second sock syndrome early in the process. :)


Your comments mean a lot to me. Thank you so much for reading my post, and heaps more hugs and thank you's for leaving a note!
