On a break

So I took a little break from knitting on my shawl yesterday. I like working on it, but everyone needs a break from lace now and then. I have had a pattern for a Weasley Cell Cozy for quite a long time now. So I thought I'd try it out.

I ran out of the maroon color I was using, so I had to use the gold to make the sleeves and the pull-string. Here's what I ended up with.

And here is my phone on it so you can see the size.

I didn't do everything exactly like the pattern. I made a few mods here and there. And if I make it again, there are other things I would do differently. It's amazing how in the short time I have been knitting, I would know different ways to get things done. But I am sure most of you out there have read a pattern and thought: "Now I could do that much easier this way." But it was fun and it gave me the rest I needed. Now back to Rosy.

It's good when you can think of better ways to do a pattern, isn't it? Very cute.

That's such a cute idea! I am soo tempted to knit one for myself but have already too many projects running. But I will definitely let you know if I do. I think it is specially cool that you learned so much while writing the pattern!

In response to Carola's comment:
I didn't write the pattern myself, I just modified it for myself as I went along.
