Practical Crochet

I popped into my lovely LYS today and picked up a ball of this while I was there:

It's a lovely variegated coral shade.  When I was a little girl I had a coral necklace, and the darker parts of the yarn remind me exactly of that necklace.  Apparently it's actually called "Lobster"... I can see that too.

In terms of what I'm going to do with it:

I'm going to make a shallow one of these and work a small hole into one side of it big enough to feed my phone charger through.  It means that I have somewhere soft and safe to put my mobile phone and jewellery overnight, especially when I'm away from home.  Practical crochet :)

But back to the current project first...
