Knitted Bible cover

Captain’s Log, Stardate 04.24.2007

Yup, I’m at it again.

My new Bible needs a cover, and one of my youth group kids suggested I knit one.

This was a great idea because I wanted a cover that was pink and fuzzy.



Isn’t it awesome? I used 7 types of eyelash yarn for the stripes. I knitted the cover with one strand of eyelash yarn held together with one strand of worsted weight acrylic yarn, and I did a simple garter stitch.

I made a mistake and the cover ended up too long, so I had to fold the edges over. I also made the inside sections with two strands of worsted weight yarn, but I should have used just one strand because it’s a bit bulky.

However, on a whole, I’m pretty pleased with it. What do you guys think?

  6. Makes you want to curl up with your Bible, doesn't it?

    Sheryl may be onto something there, Camy! Hm, a booth at ICRS with knitted Bible covers?

    It's colorful and crazy and fun. I like it!

  7. Um, no. If I was ushering and you tried to get in using something other than one of the four approved Bible covers, I would have to deny seating in the main section. Hmmm, I wonder if that’s why they never let me usher. Anyhoo, I dropped in from the High Calling Blog Tour, and got distracted by the crazy Bible case. (Shhh, don’t tell anybody, but I really love it.) ;-)

  9. Camy, my friend, you obviously have waaaay too much time on your hands. Since you're in need of something to do, get yourself on a plane, and come out here to help me pack up and fix up my house so I can sell it and move. Or not.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures
