I have a new cell phone and it is really small compared to my old one. I carry it in my big old purse and when it rings I can never find it in time to get my call. It would help if I cleaned my purse out and tidied things up in there a bit, but still it is hard to get to it quickly. Yesterday I was looking in the Hearth and Plow catalog and they had these little cell phone holders that attach to the handle of a purse. They looked like just what I needed, except that I didn't particularly like all the cutesy designs they come in. They also have similar things at Target, but they look like they were designed with teenagers in mind.
So I rummaged around my sewing stash for inspiration. I found a ball of cotton rug warp and a crochet hook, so I sat in front of Survivor and The Apprentice last night and crocheted a little sweater for my cell phone.
My husband will be amused, I imagine. We have snickered about those hats people crochet for rolls of toilet paper and refer to them as "toilet paper cozies". I'm seeing a resemblance here.
