The thing I was swatching last week. . .
. . .is finished.
I made a long strip of star stitch. . .
. . .folded it in half. . .
. . .crocheted around the edges, "seamed" up the sides, and a bit added to the top. . .
. . .to create a phone holster.
When I go walking, I use an app on my phone to track how long and how far I go. I have a phone "purse" that I made for my previous phone, but it's kind of awkward to use, so I'd been planning on making a new one.
After covering the earbuds cord, I realized that this yarn would be perfect. [The yarn was a Christmas present from my brother two (?) years ago. It was from a "mystery box" from this seller on Etsy, the colorway (which I looked for, but it doesn't appear to still be in stock) called 50 Shades of Love.] So, I started playing, and this is what I came up with.
The pictures are awful, but it's too hot to set up my lightbox. I'll get better pics another time. And I can make this better, so there's probably a redo in my future. But for the moment, I like it.
It'll do what it's intended for. And that's all I need for the moment.
