i've got this concept bouncing around in my head for a cell phone case. i may even try to add a pocket on the side for my mp3 player (very small). that way, they'll all be in one location when i'm digging through my purse.
i generally knit on 2 circs, or magic loop as i hate seaming.
so i was thinking i'd cast on enough to get a slightly snug fit for the cell phone, then knit in pattern (i've been wanting to try mini cables) until i get it as tall as i want it, then graft or bind off with 3 needles for the bottom. going back to the top, i would pick up stitches across one entire side at the top and knit a flap with an eyelet near the end so i can use it as a buttonhole.
another option would be to make a loop to hook around a button.
my dilemma, and where i'd love others' ideas, is how to get a pocket on the side for the mp3 and/or accessories.
maybe i just need to make knitty's 'on the moon' bag and put in some little dividers and attach a strap for carrying.
gosh, seems like i'm blithering on, but any ideas/input would be appreciated. even links if someone has already thought of this. (a distinct possibility.)
