What is it?

I don’t normally travel with my laptop — despite the promise of mobility, I find computers heavy, clunky, and they don’t respond well to travelling on the back of a bicycle.  After a semester of riding to uni with my laptop, it’s not running quite the same.  However, it still works and it only needs to last another semester, so I figured some preventative casing would help.

A warm laptop!

It’s just a 2×2 rib, done in a chunky acrylic on circular needles.  I sewed the bottom up and fashioned a flap for it.  One of the buttons doesn’t line up, but I’m okay with that for now.  It was a bit of an annoying project, because ribbing isn’t fun, but it was satisfying to destash some of this yarn and I like that the result is practical.

Someone wanted to help when I was photographing my new cozy.


He considers himself a supervisor of sorts.

    This is so much cuter than Matthew's ipad cover which he made out of a shamwow. It fell apart.

      Bless him, he just reminded me that he wrote a blog post about it: http://ipadminiman.blogspot.ca/2013/04/dont-worry-ive-got-it-covered.html Your knitted effort is in a different class, but we have to give him props for thrift and lateral thinking.
