Spent some of my May and June knitting time creating a laptop case for my youngest sister’s birthday.  It was my first attempt at a woven stitch that really required cabling without a cable needle.  A new stitch and a new technique – always good!

I held two strands together of an already bulky yarn to get the super bulky that the pattern required.  Was a little worried about the size, but after blocking it will be perfect for her laptop (slightly bigger than my grandpa-aged mac).  I still didn’t have room to add in the lining I thought I would – I do worry about the yarn fibers getting into her computer… hmmm.  I did pick a higher twist yarn so hopefully that will help?

Happy Birthday Bridget!
