Why fork out £269 for an iPhone when you can get your Mum to knit one for free?
OK the iPhone does usher in an era of software power and sophistication never before been seen in a mobile device, completely redefining what you can do on a mobile phone.
But can you throw it in the washing machine?
If you would like to knit one of your own, this kind lady has put all the instructions on her website.
I particularly liked this comment from one of her site visitors:
Cool mom! All i got was embarrassing multicoloured jumpers and cardigans! Can your mom knit me a PS3?
If you do want to buy a real one you can click here.
All I can say is the reception on the knitted one is absolutely consistent wherever it is, even while it’s in the wash.
