Crochet iPad Cover!

Hi!!!   I am back again to blogs and posts  after procrastinating for 4 days :)  The reasons are endless  - I was done crocheting my iPad cover on Saturday morning; but decided  to upload once the weaving-in was done;  what? You can do that in 30 min.? I was not bad either! I was done with weaving-in after watching 2 back-to-back movies – (shhh, I declare tool-down strike in kitchen every weekend! :))

Sunday morning blues - I got up late at 8 (I call it late since I get up at 5 daily)! Sun, the light-boss had already swept out my balcony off his shining rays and was then happily glowing in my neighbour’s balcony!  Doesn’t matter, I will see that fussy Sun later tomorrow and nothing can stop me from posting, after all I can take pictures in my room. Boom! There was a power cut-off as soon as I set the stage for Arte de Preeti in a corner of my bed :)

Once the power was restored after 2 hrs, I was forced to watch a movie; well, forced by myself! ; I took some pics after 4 hrs and yuck they were so bad :(  I was feeling sleepy by night – let me do that first thing tomorrow morning! I assured myself.

It turned out to be the 27th thing on Monday instead of 1st! I randomly took pictures. Arghhhhh ! the count of snaps were 47!; took me another 30 min to shortlist :( Finally, I was ready with 8 images and then searched for words; only thing that came up to my  mind was - "Hi friends, finally I am done with my iPad cover."

Is that the only thing I want to say? Nope, something more, but what? I am sure, those who read all the above and this paragraph too, might be thinking –“hey, one line could have been very good!!! :) It actually could have saved us from reading all this junk!! ; ))”

So, finally, let us see the pictures of my iPad cover and one snap of my WIP- a small crochet cross-over bag for my daughter!
 
 




 
I have made it with Anchor knitting cotton. The pattern is a simple ripple-stitch/wavy-chevrons   in front and stripes on the back. The daisy flower pattern was taken from the book – 50 fabulous crochet thread motifs by leisure art.

Happy Week Ahead!

  18. I just found your blog through Astris and the ipad cover is such a nifty idea. I have been playing with the same idea and doing the same for my daughter but I wasnt sure what yarn I should use. I see you used a cotton blend and I have a lot of that :)
    Your colors are very cheery.
