Crochet covered rocks

I just cannot stop making these crochet covered rocks. . . because they are so beautiful, just challenging enough, and a small project that I can sit down to do in the evening while listening to an audio book.  Meanwhile the sweater that I am working on in anticipation of cold weather to come, the arch-shaped socks for Alice as a memento of Sock Summit 2011, and three quilts waiting for hand quilting completion are all languishing.
