Knitboom

Shannon Okey of knitgrrl.com says, “This is the knitted Boombox Bag from my first book, Knitgrrl. It’s got a set of cheap Radio Shack speakers built into the interior that can plug into an iPod or other portable music device in the front pocket. The next version of this pattern will have the speakers actually built in to the front like a real boombox (since it was a beginners’ knitting book, we couldn’t do too much complex shaping). The sound is surprisingly good for $10 speakers!Maker Faire alert! You’ll be able to take a closer look at this knitted boombox as well as meet the fabulous Shannon herself at her booth at Bazaar Bizarre within the Maker Faire. Shannon will also be teaching a couple of crafty cool workshops! Link.
