Christmas Hangover

Here is what I have been working on. Firstly the FO. An IPod cozy for M. I am really happy with how it turned out and I love the fact the he wanted the funky lime buttons. This is the first time he has wanted/asked for anything knitted. The lighting isn't great in the photos with this being winter it's dark when he's home so no sunlight. I used a tiny bit of three colors of Cascade 220, blue, black, and reddish brown. It's just a 2x2 rib with the button flap holes made by well placed yo k2togs. He really liked it. I could change it up pretty easily if I wanted something

a little different. I'm still thinking on how to add a pocket for ear buds with out having to do any sewing. He didn't want a pocket on his so it wasn't an issue for him.

Here are woodins or at least they will be once they are felted, have eyes and tails and stuffing. I made them in different colors. Three colors as a matter of fact I must have a thing for threes. We have a green woodin, two white woodins and two brown woodins The white and brown woodins will have the leaf tails and the green woodin will have a twig tail. They were going to be for A for xmas, but obviously they didn't make it. I'm just going to give them to her when I finish the set. The last part of the knitting is....

the log that they live in. I know it looks just like a hollow log doesn't it. I'm getting ready to switch it to some circular needles since it keeps trying to jump off my dpns in my knitting bag. I have made a few modifications to the pattern on the woodins. Mine are different heights due to leg length. I wanted them to be more unique. I also used Knit Picks wool of the Andes instead of Peruvian Highland Wool that the pattern called for. The bonus was that I had to order a book to make free shipping. You know 'cause I saved money that way. I would have gotten the book anyway eventually.
