Knitting hasn’t been exactly flying off the needles hereabouts, although I sauntered to the end of the first sock of my current pair this morning. As I wound off the yarn to get to a starting-place which would somewhat resemble the first sock, I realised it was probably the perfect amount of scrap yarn to do a very quick project that has been on my mind for a while.

I’m all about grabbing the low-hanging fruit at the moment and this one-hour project was probably the lowest any fruit is going to hang.

Whilst I love my Bang and Olufsen headphones with their retro-futuristic styling, the standard foam covers had worn too thin for comfort over the years. This model is out of production and my investigations suggested that if I wanted replacements I’d have to buy on eBay. Well, being me, eBay was not an option, so I figured knitted covers would work just as well. I was right, and now my headphones should be good for another few years. I am certainly not going to complain about such a quick win.

Of course, if I’d wanted to be fancy, I’d have picked a yarn which co-ordinated well with the pinky-red of the headphones, but funky colour combinations work for me and the purple tones are complementary. Maybe when these covers wear out I’ll make another set and put a bit more thought into the yarn colour.

I’ll be back shortly with an account of my recent ponderings over that thorniest of all subjects: The Perfect Planner.

    1. I’m sure I’m not the first person to have done this, but thank-you! I’m proud of myself for stopping short of knitting a cover for the headband too.
