During our twice monthly gaming sessions I've discovered that I NEED something to do with my hands. We've got a pretty large group so it takes a while to get through everybody. This last session I got the husband to stop at the craft store on our way up and I picked up the yarn for this. Got it most of the way done that evening too!

The pattern is from http://misscraftyfingers.wordpress.com/2010/06/15/pattern-for-crochet-version-of-ribbed-lace-bolero/

It worked up very nice, I will definitely be doing this one again, probably in a nicer yarn.

Oh this was done in Caron simply soft eco the color is ocean

Thanks for looking! Comments always welcome

That looks awesome, and I am the exact same way. When we game, I have to be doing something. I'm glad I'm not the only one. I really like that color too.

That is adorable. I love the color too! I can't sit still either. Drives my DH nuts but I even take kitting to movies. Cheesy

I might have to knit up some up so I can wear my tank tops before it gets too warm here. Cheesy

It's a fine line between 'hobby' & 'mental illness

This is another reason I ought to learn to crochet.  It's lovely. 

A-ok with personal swaps.

Lovely bolero!  And add me to the list of people who also can't make it through a gaming night without crafting.  Cheesy

very nice <3 for a fellow crafty-geek, not sure i could get away with it at my gaming sessions, our GMs get twitchy about "people not paying attention" even though girls are fabulously talented and can do such things as multi-task, i knew i girl at uni who over the course of a game made a dr who scarf, the thing was immense
