I'm at the bottom of the food chain computer-wise at our house -- my trusty half-ball base Mac loads super slow, so I've taken to keeping some orphan yarn and a hook at my desk so I can crochet while waiting for iPhoto or GarageSale to load, etc.  Here's a couple of things I've been able to finish -- a card-holder keychain and tasseled lariat necklace/scarf thingy.



The button on the cardholder is a covered button made with a bit of a vintage necktie



The cord on the lariat is a simple chain that I slipstitched back along a couple of times.

Very nice! I keep yarn with me most of the time for "bored" projects. I whipped out an ami heart just last night.

I really like the card holder. It looks...different, to me. Maybe I'm just tired. What stitch(es) did you use on it? I'm really liking it.

Thanks. It's a ribbing stitch - single crochet just catching the front strand of each loop.  It was made as a flat piece along the length of the card then I seamed it by slip stitching around.

Ah, I see. Maybe the fact that it was made lengthwise was throwing me off (I was tired, as I suspected, lol). It looks great, and the yarn color is fabulous!

Thanks for replying!
