Purse and towel toppers

These are some of the things I've been working on for the last week or two. The purse and cell holder I crocheted with Bernat Blacklites using my trusty "L" hook. I think I need to come up with a different pattern for my purses.
The towel toppers were crocheted with Red Heart Sparkling and Jeweltones (both discontinued) and I used my favorite "I" hook. I think I must of been half asleep when I worked on the peach towel (the one on the right) - it's shorter and the button is on the wrong side.

If I was ever going to own a motorcycle - this one would be it. I found it on the "What Not to Crochet" site.

Special Olympic scarves

I've crocheted a couple of scarves to send to the Special Olympics. Here's the link for more info:

I had a heck of a time finding the delft blue yarn. Looked in the craft stores around here, Michael's in Watertown, NY, and in a Walmart in Canada. No one had it. Finally found 1 skein at a Walmart in St. Clair, PA.

Chenille round ripple afghan

I finished this round ripple afghan last night. It's crocheted with Lion Brand Thick & Quick chenille and I used an L hook. All the chenille was either bought at Joann's on clearance for .97 cents each skein or was given to me by my "yarn fairy". Very, very warm. I think I'll give it to my nephew's fiance Karen for Christmas.

Here are some earrings I crafted a while ago - I had to replace the earwires with sterling silver ones. I can't wear the cheap stuff anymore - irritates my ears.
