Knitting FAIL

I haven't posted to this in so long...i haven't really been knitting much...my mother and i were discussing this bizarre phenomenon today... its like when the weather gets warm, you don't want to be covered in a pile of fuzzy yarn or something...bizarre...anywho..

So my dad requested a cell phone case for fathers day. Nothing too complicated. right?


NO!!!

i have been trying for a week to get him to tell me what the model of his phone is so that i can look the dimensions up online, but he is techno-tarded and doesn't even know how to follow my instructions...and told me that the phone is "about 2 inches wide and 3 inches long...maybe 4..."thanks, dad. very helpful. my mom finally sent me the dimensions but i'm pretty sure she's on crack because they just DON'T. MAKE. SENSE.

so i came up with a design based on the numbers i was given and tweaked it a bit so that i could stitch a Monogram into it with his initials...decided i was going to basically knit a "+" shape and stitch it up...piece of cake.

Aaaaand the stitched up bit...notice the bizarre size of it? yeah.
my parents are "special"

Just to give you a little perspective, here is my girlfriend's phone in the pouch.
and she has a SMALL phone.


long story short, my dad is getting this piece of shit for fathers day with the promise of a new one as soon as he parts with his fucking phone long enough for me to measure it. at least the monogram turned out well.

wheeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

this is not necessarily fail, you could save it...maybe you could knit a strip in red and sew it on around the top to make it bigger. you could even add some black yarn accents to make it look all fancy and intentional!
