Have needles, will travel

It's been a long time since I've shared any of the knit goodies I've made (or, made and unraveled), so I've got a bit of a backlog of things crafted from the two huge cones of natural cotton I picked up before we left NYC: There's this little case I made for my new phone after I finally replaced the comatose one. The knit pouch goes around the rubbery hand grip one, this way when it's in my bag next to keys and pens and whatnot it won't get all scratchy.

Then when I was in Italy I began work on another set of 4 napkins, this time all in different stitches and slightly larger than my previous ones.

And, right before we left NYC I made a traveling sleeve for my laptop, using some of the leftover buttons from my nephew's cardigan set.

Next up while I wait for the rest of my yarn supply to arrive from NYC (since I'm still stuck with the creamy cotton cones), perhaps an open-weave market bag? We tend to run out every other day for groceries now, instead of waiting for the weekly delivery from FreshDirect, so I know it'd come in handy. And, it would definitely be less unsightly than the big blue IKEA bags we've been using.
