Yarn Bombing

Today I decided to yarn bomb the nearest item to my person…which happened to be my baby Nikon. I love this camera so much, but it kills me inside every time I take it anywhere because I’m so scared that the screen is going to get scratched. Now that problem is evaded thanks to my newest experiment with yarn. I actually really like this wool cover I made. It connects with nude colored buttons to the back and bottom of the piece so it can easily be put on and off, making taking pictures safer ( and cuter!) that ever!

Laptop Case

I’ve been wanting a chunky crocheted laptop case for FOREVER and I finally sat down and watched 40 episodes of The Lizzie Bennett Diaries and made one last night. I love it since it’s dual color, but I ESPECIALLY love the button, which I found at a thrift store in Seattle. My laptop is very happy with its new home.

Mug Hugger Pattern

 ‘Tis the season for white elephant gift, and other kinds of gift exchanges, including one of my personal favorites: The mug exchange. This little Christmas treat allows you to get rid of that ugly mug you got for Christmas last year, or find a new tea cup for your already ridiculously out of control collection. Either way it can be tons of fun. For me, as a person who is not a fan of the “ugly” trend for the Christmas season (ugly sweaters, mugs, costumes etc.), I’ve decided to crochet myself through this trend as well. And, as my gift to you: Here is a little present so that you can avoid it as well.Mug Hugger
