When I was younger, my mother taught me how to knit. I started with dishcloths. When I got bored with that, I found "cooler" stuff to do than knit, but a few years ago I got back into knitting and taught myself how to do more advanced stitches and how to read a pattern (with a little help from my mom, but soon I started to do things she thought were too advanced for her to do). I had just bought a Nintendo DS, and wanted a case to keep it free from scratches, but all the ones in stores were just black and boring, so I decided to knit one! It's brown with a pink and white argyle print.
