iPhone Cozy

The Animator's Wife has come up with a solution to her Kindle desires. Did you know you can get a Kindle app on your iPhone or iPod Touch for free?
iPhone Kindle
You can read all the same ebooks that are available on Amazon's Kindle, but without the hefty price tag that comes with owning an actual Kindle. And that means that you can also get the Zodiac Kittens ebook on your iPhone through Kindle for iPhone. Hurray!

To celebrate, we've created a crochet pattern for an iPhone cozy. Don't worry, it's not as dorky as it sounds.
iPhone Cozy 1
We just love the look of old-timey needlework mixed with the new fangled smart phone. It's even got a window for the camera lens and all the connection ports!
