Crochet Rewind! ~ Diane's Vintage Zest!

Crochet Rewind!

You're probably thinking, where did the crochet rewind come from?  Isn't this a sewing rewind series?  Don't worry, this will be the one and only of its kind, because I don't crochet much anymore and nobody wants to see a bunch of boring scarves that I made back in college!

Well, as you know, I shared with you my technology woes, and found myself in need of a good old-fashioned computer back-up from scratch.  That meant digging out my trusty external hard drive and firing up Time Machine to back up all my data since last time in...  September 2011!  Eep!

Anyways, I decided to snap a few pictures during the hours that my computer was backing up to share this with you!

Well, what is it?

It's a cushioned, crocheted pouch for my external hard drive and its cord!

It's truly one of the only things I've ever crocheted that had a purpose.  I have tons of scarves, but it's Southern California...  Yes, I use my blanket basically every day, but it's not particularly exciting.

However, I still get a kick every time I see my purple external HD pouch with the little pocket and the simple button.  It's not super original or fancy, but it does its job and I love it.  :)

What's the crafted item that makes you smile every time you use it?
