Inspired by this, I decided to knit a little “camera cozy” for my Olympus Stylus point-and-shoot, which I like to just toss in my purse sans case, to keep things light. The yarn is Neighborhood Fiber Co. fingering weight in Brightwood. Really gorgeous colors: chocolate, cream, duck’s egg blue, and vivid turquoise.
(Here it is without the camera inside, photographed on Nancy Crow’sbeautiful book)
The pattern is my own, from start to finish, designed on the needles. I’ll post it one of these days. But just so you know, I cast on 44 stitches for the ribbing using US# 0 DPNs, then increased to 48 stitches for the body. Fits like a glove! And it only took two days to complete.
The fiery color is Capitol Hill, and the Purple/Teal color is called Brookland. It’s the softest mohair/silk laceweight yarn I’ve felt…no itchiness at all! If you’re planning on going to TKC, do be sure to stop by the Neighborhood Fiber Co. booth and say “Hi” to Karida!
