Knitting on the Kindle

So, I emailed myself several of my pdf knitting patterns. I am just tickled pink to see how well they show up on the Kindle. I love my Kindle the best!

I've also loaded a number of patterns from my knitting software (Sweater Wizard and Sock Wizard) in .txt format with good results.

Oh, from the title I though maybe you were going to knit yourself a cover.

Kindle Kozy

I knit myself a slipcover for the Kindle. It's very handy when you want to slip the device into a purse or tote bag. I used sock yarn so it wouldn't be too bulky and keeping to the "Amazon" theme, the pattern calls for Opal Rainforest yarn although I actually used another Opal colorway in the model.

The pattern is available on my blog.

That's really cute but I'd worry about carrying my Kindle around in a bag without a stiff case. The screens are somewhat fragile.

You could always sew a piece of cardboard in . Or if you use something stiffer like plexyglass, thin plywood or metal sheet, contact glue a strip of fabric all around it to then sew it inside your knitted jacket.

Kindle slipcover too fragile?

I didn't mention it, but the slipcover in the pattern is actually designed to fit inside the Kindle with its cover on. I actually love using the Kindle in the cover that came with it and put the Kindle (cover and all) inside the knitted Kindle Kozy so it has plenty of protection.

Oh cool! I'll have to finish this pair of socks and a pair of leg warmers for my DD *then* I'll knit a Kindle Kozy.
