Wow, I can knit

I'd almost given up on knitting in favor of much-more-comfortable-because-I-know-what-I'm-doing crochet. But I got inspired tonight. I started fresh on a ball of Lily Sugar 'n' Cream yarn, varigated in neon blue/yellow/green, and did 6 rows each of stockinette stitch, seed stitch, and a 1x1 rib, repeating the 6 rows of St st in between sections of seed and the rib. I edged it* with Lion Cotton neon orange in crochet, and sewed on what may be the first button I've ever sewed on anything.

(But I didn't have any thread, so I used alpaca lace yarn!)

*"It," by the way, is a cell phone cozy. It's also, I guess, my first original design. Sort of. :)

Very pleased with my little creation!
