I was thinking of making myself some clothes for myself and a lot of my friends wanted stuff for themselves. Since I don’t swatch or mathematically design my knits I got a little overwhelmed trying to figure out how to knit a good fit. So I decided to switch to swim wear and made this for myself as a sample to figure out how it all worked together.

This was the first phone case I made for one of my colleagues. I wasn’t really happy with the results because it ended up looking like a coin purse. I cross stitched the logo as a request.

My husband asked for an eye mask to help him sleep during the day while he was on the night shift. Again I misjudged the amount of a border I would need to keep the stockinette stitch from curling.
