Finished this notebook cover

knitting sketch
in time for the Anniversary trip to Scotland but didn't have a photo to put up until yesterday.

I didn’t felt this (as per pattern instructions) because I knitted it in cotton for an allergic-to-wool husband, and adjusted the measurements to fit the husband’s notebook by number of stitches and rows.

I also knitted the closing ‘band’ wider, with a garter stitch border to stop it curling, used a button as a fastner, and added a ‘knitted with love’ heart charm (from Athenacrafts ebay shop) to the flap.

I'm fairly chuffed that within minutes of adding it to my project archive on Ravelry , a Mod asked to use my photo with the pattern details.

That's really nice - I'm sure MWNN appreciates the trouble you went to for him too, which is really what it's all about. And how nice to be asked for the photo like that!

He was fairly chuffed because he wanted a cover for his new 'toy' to protect it. He's thrown the bubble wrap he was using away so that tells me how suitable my cover is - it's even in school blue.

how nice to be asked for the photo like that!
Very good for the psyche, Minister.

Very spiffy! I like the silver details.

Thank you. The button is one of a set I picked up in a charity shop years ago to use on embroidery projects. I'm sure I can find more uses for its companions, especially as some shawl designs would benefit from the addition of a couple of buttons.

The notebook cotton pocket is wonderful, no wonder they want to use your photo and design, its magnificent.

Thank you! MWNN seems to like it, too.

I love it. It has a lovely Victorian feel to it!

Aww, thanks.
It has a lovely Victorian feel to it!
It's the knit stitch on the edge of the fastening band that has a lacy look. Totally unintentional.
