This was really fun to make! Smiley I may enter it at my local fair. Made with cotton yarn, I have always loved the atomic designs and color combinations of the early 60's Smiley

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

so cute! I don't usually like crocheted covers but I did a double take on this one since it doesn't even look crocheted at all! I especially love the circles!

I am always inspired by your crochet, the heart mansion, and all the beatles lyric inspired stuff. This is so much fun!! I've got quite a few appliaces that could use a cover like this.
