Personalizing My Earbuds

I didn't get a whole lot of knitting or crochet done last week. But I did manage to finally cover my earbud cord. . .

This is one of those projects I do when I acquire a new device. The phone in question I got back in December. So, this project has been in the to-do pile for months. 

It's hard to describe what I did. It's kind of me making a chain around the cord. Or, it could be described as me slip stitching around the cord. (Even if you know crochet that description probably makes no sense.) 

If I ever figure out how to make videos, this will be a technique I demonstrate. But that's a concern for a different day. 

My previous cord covers can be found here:

  1. I bet that keeps them from getting tangled.

  2. Cute! I really love how you did that. The white is so boring. You really jazzed it up. The multi-red yard is so pretty.

  4. Cool! Did you use a chain stitch for it? It kind of looks like how my grandmother would crotchet over hangers.

    1. I did, kind of. The crocheting over hangars is basically the idea behind this (although I was far from the first to do it).

  5. Love the yarn you used. Does it take long?

  6. Interesting. I'll also say "it's cute!" because....it's cute. I am getting close to the time where I will start to crochet again (I don't crochet in the summer; rarely have...)

    1. I have to have a project going. I can't sit still in front of the TV most of the time otherwise. I do more crochet in the summer as it's cooler. But I know what you mean. Hot days with yarn in hands. Yeah, not ideal.

  8. Well, that's cool. I never even thought about doing something like that but with my son and his gaming cords everywhere I just might! - Love that yarn too!

    1. I couldn't have said it better, though I have no skill with textiles. :)

    2. Yeah, when I first saw it, I thought it was a good idea. And it really does help keep things from tangling.

  9. Well done Liz - just leave 'my buds as is' ... so much easier! But I admire these ... and if it stops them tangling ... it makes sense - take care - Hilary
