'What I've Been Up To' Post

My laptop was sent out to be repaired in style(I should say!)earlier this week. My husband gave me the idea and I managed to finished it in one day while having a fever! I used two strands of yarn held together and HDC stitch to make it even sturdier. I didn't fancy the colors much but they were two of the colors that I know would be enough. It took 2 balls of each color to get it done with the largest hook I had. That's another story, that. About the hook, I mean.
I will post more tomorrow although I'm not sure if I should post all that I've been done lately or one at a time. What do you think?
Have a great week ahead!

I really like this idea. I made a hot pad for a casserole dish with this method of crocheting two strands together. It does make it sturdier but that is good as it will last. I also like the colors. I don't think you'd want anything too bright for what you are using it for. Very nice project.

Looks good & sturdy for your lappy!=)

Just planning to make one for my lappy too but haven't gone into it yet :p

Tak susah ke guna dua benang skali? How do you make sure it won't spilt easily when you crochet them? pakai hook besar ke?

I vote for post one at a time! ;)

Thanks both, Clara & Fyd for your kind words!
It's easy to hold 2 yarns together if you use a bigger hook. Mine is 5mm, I think. I don't really bother about the sizes since I can't tell which one is which! I just use whatever hook I have to get the right gauge.
And Fyd, I'll post them one at a time as per your request :D

What a good idea, not only does it look pretty but it helps protect your laptop against any scratches, etc.
