Clever Crafty Uses for iPhone

Yes, there are apps out there for various crafts, but what about using your iPhone in more clever ways?

Some Ideas

  • Use it as a measuring tool when you're without one.  My iPhone 6 is 5.5 inches long and 2 and 5/8ths" wide.
  • Use it as a pom pom maker.

  • Practice knitting without turning your work by watching what it looks like from the back of your work.
  • Use the calculator app as an impromptu row counter - When I need to keep track of my row count, like for cables or when I do two sleeves at the same time, I will sometimes just keep the calculator open and store my current row number
If you have any great ideas, leave a comment on the YouTube video or in comments here for ways you've used your iPhone or smartphone for your knitting, crochet, weaving, etc.

Current Knitting

I've finished knitting the front and back of the sweater I'm working one and have started the sleeves.

You'll note I'm knitting both sleeves at the same time (which I always find challenging...keeping rows in synch and remembering where I am).

I've also almost finished the niece blanket...and it's rather huge.

Just a few more rows to go and then I'll bind off (using a sewn bind off to give it a stretchier edge).
