Right around the time this challenge came out, I got a MacBook, and needed a way to cover it.  The ones I found online had an opening to show the Apple logo, so I knew I had to incorporate it somehow.  And to what story is an apple more central than to the Adam and Eve story?  Here's my version, in tapestry crochet:



To start, I sketched my idea on graph paper, then blocked it out in squares.  Here's my original drawing:



The plan was to make a cozy for the entire laptop to travel in, but i forgot that the apple only glows when the screen is on, and the effect isn't nearly as cool.  I tore off the back piece and made it into a screen cozy instead.  To make it fit the screen, I did a round of single crochet and a couple of rows of double crochet, reducing by several stitches each time, and of course I left a little opening for the webcam.  Here's what it looks like from the screen side:



I hope you all enjoyed it, and good luck to everyone!

My boyfriend gets a little annoyed by my crafty obsession, but he saw this and said, "Damn. That's good."

I happened to agree. This really rocks!  Cheesy
