I noticed on the Apple website that you can buy little socks to keep your Nano in. We don’t need to buy no stinkin’ socks! I exclaimed (or words to that effect). I whipped out my trusty Addi Lace needles and whipped up a little iPod sock from some of the Jaegger Trinity left over from Rowan Margaret’s Silken Slippers. My little Nano is very happy cradled in silk and cotton — and an added plus is that the sock stretches enough to also accommodate the earphones. Eventually I want to make a felted cozy for it using the double-knitting techniques I learned last week from Lucy. But for now the sock works very well.

The Particulars:

  • Yarn: Jaeger Trinity (40% silk, 35% cotton, 25% polyamide / 50g, 200m per skein) in colorway 431 (Sage)
  • Needles: one pair 24″ Addi Lace, US#2
  • Pattern: none. Made up as I went along. Started with Judy’s Magic Cast-On along the bottom, and knit straight in 1×1 ribbing until it was long enough.

    • In all history there is no war which was not hatched by the governments, the governments alone, independent of the interests of the people, to whom war is always pernicious even when successful.
