I wanted a soft case for my iPad mini, and I have always loved celtic knots. Knitting lends itself quite well to create celtic knots with cables, so thus the Celtic Mini Tablet Case was born. It is a nice thick case that will protect against scratches. Solid colored yarns show off the celtic pattern quite nicely.

This case is designed for an iPad mini, with a finished size of 6” by 8.5” (15.24 cm by 21.6 cm). It should accommodate smaller tablets with a bit of extra space inside and slightly larger tablets with some stretch.

“Flow State” or being “in the zone” describes a person being completely absorbed in what they are doing. This often leads to higher productivity and greater enjoyment of the task. Flow state is exactly how I feel about knitting. When I really get into a rhythm, the stitches just flow. It is almost a form of meditation, which helps me relax and reduce stress.

I named this scarf “Flow State”, not only to represent this form of concentration when knitting, but also to represent the flow of a river. The curves flow along the length of the scarf just as a river flows around its banks. The scarf is thick and squishy, perfect for cold weather days. The ribbed pattern is also reversible.
