"Kindle" Crochet Cradle

On the way to Rosemaling Camp...
... a road trip project:
 "Kindle" Cradle
Made with the Granny Rose from the CAL with a few sc rows, 
a few dc rows and a bobble row for additional texture.
The back is simply 2 dc and 1 ch.
A picot edge, also from the Granny Rose CAL.
 Although this was excellent entertainment for a nine hour drive we were also 
entertained and perplexed by the following:

Hmmmmmmm...I'm at a loss of words....

Looking forward to unpacking then enjoying a "book" and a cup o' joe:
Stay tuned this week for a couple of rosemaling camp posts that are in the works.

See ya' soon!


  1. That is so pretty, I love it

  2. Oh, that is really beautiful I love it, too.


  3. Hmmmm indeed.

    Love the button closure on the Kindle cosy! Popcorn does add texture ... and fiber. (Yarn pun!)


  4. Det var eit søtt etui!
    Eg klarer ikkje å lese når eg sit på under bilkøyring, for då blir eg dårleg. Så å hekle under køyring er dessverre heilt uaktuelt for meg:(

  5. Thank you and Tusen takk ogsa!

    Popcorn and fiber, haha too funny.

    It sounds like this might be a cosy or a sleeve? I must have been thinking cradle, sort of like where my phone sits to get charged???

    Sonja - I have a difficult time reading in a car but am still lucky that as long as there is not a lot of starting and stopping i can still crochet; however, I don't know how well it will go on a boat in Norway...I suppose I may find out next year. :-)

    Thanks for the wonderful comments.

  6. So pretty, I can't work in the car or I'd be travel sick, but what a great time to get lots done on a project. x

  7. I love it Astri so pretty and colourful :)

  8. That is so pretty. I've been wondering what I could make for my next project. A new kindle cover sounds like a good idea :)

  9. I don't think there are too many people who can say they have such a cozy Kindle cover. So pretty and unique. That motor home seems to have everything but the kitchen sink ... but then again, it probably has that, too. ha! Sounds like you had a good trip. Best wishes, Tammy

  10. Ohhhhhhhh, lovely thing for your "book" (??? I don't know the word !)I imagine that 9 hours to drive is enough to do this little bag. But a very good occupation during this journey !
    Mobile homes are crazy !!!
    Bye, bye ............ ;-)

  11. Simply beautiful! One of a kind iPad cover that no one else has. Colors are just stunning.

  12. You are all so kind! Thank you for the interest!!!

  13. Wow that is just so very beautiful! I love the colours you've used - it's gorgeous!!!

    Have a fabulous weekend hon,

  14. This is really fabulous! I had a go at your C.A.L last year, but still have not managed to join it together yet - possibly because I didn't think it was going to fit the pillow pad I had planned for it.So I need to do it all again. Think I might just have a go at this first though. Thank you for all the wonderful patterns and ideas you come up with.

  15. Saw this on pinterest and just loved it. Now I see you live in Utah! *waves* from around the BYU area. Have an awesome day!

    1. Hi Grace - so glad you found a fellow Utahn! SO glad you found me via Pinterest.

  16. Don't you LOVE your Kindle? I download all my crochet patterns to it and have it with me everywhere. Beautiful cover. Mine's not nearly so pretty but you are inspiring me. I love the wild pictures you posted. Gives me some ideas of what to do to my old Subaru. Maybe The Hubster would buy me a new one if I dolled it up like one of those??? Hmmmmm, can you hear the rusty old cogs of my brain going here???!!! ;-)

  17. Can you send me the instructions for the kindle/tablet cover? I don't see any on screen. Send it to and if you've any more can you send them too? Also if you've any patterns for granny squares, crochet hook organiser case can you include them? Where do you get your patterns?

  18. Is there a pattern for this??? I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
