I’m not sure about you but I spend an awful lot of time hunting for my mobile phone – particularly when I am at work so today I decided to remedy this situation by making a Cable Call Phone Pouch.  It is very simple to make and doesn’t take up too much time or wool.  I”ve made the neck band nice and long as I like to wear it across my shoulder so that the pouch can sit on my hip.

I live in a small cottage in rural Ireland with my family. We care for two lively alpacas and two sedentary cats. I love all things "textile" but particularly knitting aran patterns and spinning my alpaca's wool.
