FO-Handwarmers & iPod case

Happy Monday! Another beautiful fall day in our neck of the woods. Another day I didn't get to go take pix of the kids. Emma had a doctor's appointment after school and got 4 vaccinations. Four! Yikes! But after 2 more doses of Guardasil, she won't need another shot for 10 years. She'll be an adult by then. Okay, maybe I should derail this train of thought right now.

Time for a few FO's!
First up I have a pair of handwarmers made for my swap partner, Chris. They are made from ShiBui sock yarn that I  bought up north this summer. I love the color and shading of this yarn. It worked up so nicely.
I had enough yarn left over to make something else, but not enough to make a second pair. So I decided to go with an iPod sock. Bart thinks it looks like a turtleneck :) I rummaged thru my collection of buttons to add a little whimsy, and liked it so much that I went back and added some to the handwarmers as well. There is also a felt American Crafts flower on there. who says I don't use my scrapping supplies?
This was one of those projects that takes literally no time to make, and not much yarn either. I always have little leftover balls, so I plan to make a bunch of these things to put in an etsy store. Someday.
I didn't get a thing accomplished today after a weekend full of playing garage/pool furniture/under the deck cleanup. My body was pooped. Hopefully tomorrow I will be more productive! :)
