It's true. I have a crochet hook and ball of yarn with me most of the time lately, especially while in bed at night watching tv. Certainly more productive than playing hand-held video games, which used to be my obsession.
I've really liked using two strands of the thrifted alpaca/angora/mohair blends together. I've come up with some pretty color combinations.
I had a hard time photography these so that they actually look squared up. They really are straighter than they appear, lol.
My stitches have gotten so much better since I first started crocheting. These ones are eyeglass size.
With all of them, I put in snaps under the flap and added clip-on earrings or pins. These are larger coin purses.
