Knitting - A Kindle/Kobo Sleeve

This past week I decided I needed to make a kindle case. I looked at a few patterns online but I wanted a case with an owl in the middle on both the front and back. I decided I could come up with one, I know how to knit and purl and the owl is cabled which would be a great next step in knitting. I did try to start this project a few times only to rip it out as it was too big for what I needed.
I got started with what I thought would be the right amount of cast on stitches and I decided I would do a pattern of stocking stitches for 6 rows and then flip it and do another 6 rows before centering two owls. I knitted this case flat but I may try to make it on circular needles next time as I think it will be easier to follow the owl patterns available online.

Once I got on a roll I good to go but something happened when I was cabling the owls that they don't exactly look like what I was aiming for. In the end.... The case fits (a bit snug but I wanted it snug, next time though maybe an extra couple stitches would be good), the owls look okay and well I have a case for my kindle when I am on the go.

Mission accomplished for now.
I am also debating but I may embroider Genuine Jenn on the spots above and below the owls.

If people would be interested in the pattern, I would be more than happy to post it after a little more tweaking. Please send me an email or leave a comment if you are interested.

Next I am making a Frilly scarf for my mom for Easter. I know it is almost spring but she has been dying for one of those scarves everyone has worn all winter. Now that I am knitting I figure why not make one for her and she will have it for next year.
