My first proper crochet project since middle school!

You see, crochet and I have always had this love/hate relationship triangle with knitting.  When knitting and I get angry with each other, I comfort myself with crochet.  For the past forever, though, I've only seen crochet in the form of dice bags.  I wanted something else to do, and my silly friends keep having babies.

The colors are messed up in the picture.  They're Simply Soft Brites, in every color that was awesome (stash busting from the Happy Hippie Gloves).

Didn't turn out too bad.  I love the colors, and enjoyed the excuse to sit around watching Doctor Who.  Crocheting the pieces together didn't work as well as I wanted it to, but it's not that noticeable once I blocked it.  I'm pretty happy with it overall.

Kitten insists on helping me do everything, including take pictures.  While I was working on this, she would routinely grab my yarn and run off with it.

Absolutely love the colors! I am in love with rainbows, and I like the lighter but still bright versions of the colors. Serious eye candy.

I love all things shiny, glittery, and colorful.
