There's something about crocheting that makes people want to create strange but useful things. Moreso than knitting. It's in a league all its own.
I've done a little crocheting myself. I like that it's a lot faster than knitting and a lot less complicated.
Check out these interesting finds from some etsy sellers who also love to crochet.
I thought this crochet ear phone hat (above) was a great idea! I only wish I had some in college. There were many a cold February morning when I was walking to class and could have used something like this.

And I didn't wear a stitch of stocking. I look back and think what a lunatic I was. But in my defense, I was 18, the mini pleated look was in and it really flattered my stubby legs.
I really could have used some of these right? They look so Anthro!
I might just have to sit down and figure out how to make them myself. I think it might be doable.
