Paperback Holder

I don't exactly know what to call it, but it holds paperbacks and it's done! lol

The thing is, my reading books keep getting squished in my backpack among all the big heavy chemistry books. For some strange reason I figured that if I had a little knit pouch for them, they wouldn't get so beat up. Looking at it now, I'm not sure it's going to help at all. I'll guess we'll see tomorrow.

I'm still really glad I made it though. It was fun sketching it, and planning it, then knitting it. It's a little hard to see, but it's got honeycomb cables on the side and bottom. Those are always fun to make. Plus, I now know how to make a button hole. :)

I think I'm going to have to switch buttons. Although it's a very pretty button, it's the wrong color.

Running today was ok, except I was tired, so I only ran 8 km (56 min). Yesterday I was also tired, and I was pressed for time, so I only ran 5.5 km 37 min). My running is going to the dogs. I hope I can do a long run next weekend. If that works out then it'll be ok. I don't know what this slum is, but it could possibly be related to the fact that I'm constantly tired and every minute I spend not studying is spent in guilt (ok not every minute, but most).

Those cables up the sides are an especially nice touch! (aside from providing a bit of extra protection for the spine and pages). Thanks for sharing it.
