My poor laptop pouch

If you remember, not long ago I spent quite some time and energy crocheting myself a laptop pouch and was well pleased with the result and have been using it every day since.


One thing about having a white laptop is that every little stain and mark can be seen easily and the other night after my shower, as usual I was ready for bed and was just going to check my mails before going to bed. As I was taking the laptop out of my lovely pouch, I noticed some funny streaks. At first I thought they were shadows from the light but as I started turning the laptop left and right, the streaks stayed where they were. I GASPED !!!!!! Steve can tell you, where preserving the pristine state of my gadgets is concerned, I am utterly and completely A.N.A.L !!! My Blackberry sits in a holster at all times to prevent scratches; my Nintendo DS Lite has a pink Simpsons case; my Ipod Nano sits in a colourful sock at all times and last but not least, my laptop is kept in the pouch all the time, even if it's just sitting on the bed side table doing nothing. Yesss, I know.. I told you, I am very particular about looking after my things.

So now, my poor laptop pouch is being cast aside ever since that night because although it might seem like the most bizarre logic, there is no other explanation for the light streaks to be on the back of my laptop apart from the possibility that the colour has run from the yarn onto the laptop.

Sniff, Sniff. Imagine, after investing all that time, love and emotion, I can no longer use it.  At the back of all that, Steve 'unsympathetically' said..."Oh why don't you just buy one pouch online, like everyone else?"

I have not given up on the pouch yet. Perhaps I will give the pouch a wash and see what happens.

Sniff.

Sniff.

If I were you, i'd listen to Steve. Once bitten twice shy. The pouches you get specifically for computers are made from special non scratch, non dust material. If you still want to use that radley button pouch, use if over the computer pouch. By the way, you sure it's not Sasha or something who's accidentally done the scratch?

yeah sasha trying to use my Mac but did not succeed coz she's a PC user, haha. She was trying to order some special doggie treats for christmas perhaps. hehe. nahh they are not scratches. they are like light coloured streaks that look oddly 'blended' with the cover and no matter how many times you wipe them they won't come off.. sob sob.

How about you get a normal laptop pouch then slip your pouch over it. It does sound like the streaks came from the green yarn. Poor you :(
