This Little Piggy ..............

In our local newspaper each morning there are a number of catalogues selling all sorts of wonderful products, which of course DD grabs and finds many things to add to her 'I want' list. Well amongst this mornings offerings were of all things socks for mini ipods, now Janelle has been saving all her pocket money over the last 12 months to buy a mini ipod and so combined with the money she received for her birthday she could finally get one. You can see where this is heading can't you? Yes the socks were a 'I want them' and at $50 a packet for 5 socks, oh yes admittedly they were all in different colours, but hey that is still $10 each and who needs 5 anyway no matter how pretty. I could recall a cute little pig mobile phone cover in the Stitch 'N' Bitch Nation and thought that would do the job, showed DD, she loved it, so went and had a look in the stash and found a lovely bright pink Bendigo 8ply and voila, we now have a pig ipod cover. However no pig is complete without curly tail so I added a tail to him and now he is finished so if you would like to make him and add a tail this is what I did:
cast on loosely 10 sts
Row 1 (k1, k1 tbl, k1) in each stitch across
Row 2 Cast off purlwise.
Twist into shape, and there you have a little tail.

Yes, I saw those in the catalogue too and I thought "$50!!!!!!!!!!!" Yours is so much better, cheaper, cuter and with a tail!!! I have threatened ACMA with one if she isn't nice to me. I have already knitted her a mobile 'sock' the poor woman. I am knitting a camera 'cosy' next!!
