Keeping My Hands Busy

This one's Wanelo's fault. (I can't blame them all on Pinterest.)

It started when I saw this. (Not sure the legalities of posting pics of things that are not my own, so I'm hedging and just giving you a link. Go look. I'll wait.)

I thought, "I can do that." Well, not actually. I'm not sure what technique was used, but I figured I could crochet something like that. First, I went on a web search, and I found all sorts of interesting ways to cover a cord in yarn, but they were all the ways I could figure out on my own (although, I did get some interesting ideas).

I got to playing, and this is what I came up with...

Covering the earbuds

Covering the power cord

And I added a button so that I could keep the cord bundled
Yes, I know. I have too much time on my hands and no new project ideas. I even covered the power cord for my nook.


  1. That's really cool, and I love the button because then things can be bundled nice and neat.

  2. That's a cool cord cover. It's almost like you are yarn bombing things now.

  3. LOL. This is awesome. Can I use it in a book? =) Seriously though.

    1. Sure. No problem. Especially since I can't claim ownership. Google "cord covers" and see what people are doing.

  4. That's a cute idea. A button like that would help it stay untangled and it would work a lot better than those velcro things they come with.
