The art of procrastination

I'm currently finishing my final report for my honours project but I've had enough of writing about nematodes for the day. So I decided to finish making the chick I started t'other day. I was going to make just the average chick but alas I decided it could do with a geeky look. So here it is in all its geeky glory! 

It kind of reminds me of a zoombini ... I should make another in blue and purple and then it will be more zoombini-ish. It has a surprise though...

Yehp, its a creme egg holder (if you ignore the threads yet to be woven in). And here it is with the egg removed, and how it shall spend most of its time due to constant eating of creme eggs.

I'm quite pleased with it and I like its glasses :D

Anyway the picture below shows one of my on going projects which I will hopefully finish in the summer. Its the beginnings of a throw, Scandinavian style from a book my brother got me for my birthday.

The yarn is really soft so I can't wait until its done so I can snuggle up in it.

Finally here is a pic of the phone case I made a while ago...

Im currently trying to design a little bear and a flower beetle. The beetle pattern is being tricky and I've had to redo it many times! I should really be spending more time revising and doing my honours project than crocheting but oh well...



  1. I love your geeky version of the creme egg creatures!


  2. These are so cute! I think they are the perfect thing for easter!

  3. Thanks! I got the pattern from Catherine's blog :D
