LOL, glad I could help with some spring cleaning! I keep meaning to do a CTRL ALT DEL choker now that I have had some key donations. Haven't had time to bust out the Dremel in awhile... Let me see if you make one!

lmao - this is SO cool!  BF had (hopefully still has a few) tons of keyboards - loads in Spanish language if he hasn't sold them yet - and he keeps asking me if there are crafts to use the keys from them. Well, he'll be tickled when I show him your chokers - he'll now say "I told you so!!!!"  btw: those are the words he would use, too. nerd/geek/propeller head, etc.

(hugs to you!)

Thanks so much, staciart! Sorry he gets to say I told you so, but glad to inspire a little. ^_~

OK! I hit up my local Mac repair place and nabbed a dead keyboard, so I'm halfway there. I was hoping you could post the pattern for the yarn part? I really like the way that came out and I'm hoping getting the keys I needed was the hard part.  Smiley

I Love it!

I have a basket with a bunch of keys in it already and a few more half working ones in the garage.

I was trying to think of other things you can spell. How about...

OUT OF CONTROL - with CONTROL being the CONTROL key

Just the HELP key on a denim choker...maybe framed by < and > or followed by "me"

BYTE ME

F16 for your military friends

Shift Apple 3 or Shift Apple 4 for photographers (These are the keys you use to make screen captures on a mac)


There has to be something clever than can be done with the escape key....hummm
