mmm love the rhubarb crisp!

and those mitts are fabulous!  I am also amazed that you did them without a pattern!  The wave hat is also very nice!

I made a crochet basket and a Japanese knit bag for my friend alteredmommy.

I can't find the pictures I took, so I stole hers:

All wonderful projects!  Love the baby blanket and fox...also, the shawl pin is quite lovely!

I managed to get a couple of little crochet projects done while on vacation...Grin.

KK--I know about becoming obsessed with finishing something...I can't believe it is going to be such a solid piece...you have so much patience, but it will be something you will treasure since it means so much to you!  So far, it looks like a lot of black to me, so I will have to follow you on FB better to see how it is coming along!  Glad you are settling in your new home as well...

Thanks, everyone...my 86 year old aunt died, leaving my 91 year old uncle to take care of himself...but now, the church ladies and some relatives closer to him are stepping up to the plate, so all is well...I will visit him this summer to make sure all is well...family is very important to me...

During this stressful time, I have been doing a lot of mindless crochet...afghan crazy...Grin.

This was suppose to be for a friend's baby, but it turned out too large and the baby is going to be a boy--I guessed incorrectly! Grin  So I gave it to a co-worker who is madly in love with anything purple...

A V-stitch blanket, just because I loved the color scheme that I saw online...

and, a WIP--a scrap blanket made from all those scrap balls left over from various projects...I still have a way to go, but this is what I have so far...

I did finish a baby girl blanket for another friend, who is expecting a baby in August...my first knitted blanket:

Another mandala for kittykill because I love her! Kiss

I still need to catch up on all the posts while I was "away".

I did a lot of destashing of my small yarn stash...those pesky leftovers from other projects that almost force you to buy more yarn just to use them up...well, I decided to use up ALL the acrylic balls that I have so far...it is not done yet, but here is my progress...

It is a simple double crochet blanket and I am weaving in my ends as I go... Grin.

5  What a nice way to use up partial skeins to make a baby blanket! in Knitting: Completed Projects by alwaysinmyroom on: May 06, 2015 08:00:13 AM
When I saw this post, I fell in love with the baby blanket!  I knew I had a lot of partial skeins of yarn from other projects, mostly from crochet blankets, so I decided to give it a try.  This is the largest thing I have ever knitted...I thought I would get bored, but the interesting color changes were fun!

Here is the original post with her free pattern link on her blog...


And, here is my blanket...I made it a bit larger by adding a couple more color panels.  You can make this as long and wide as you want as long as they fit your circulars...

Detail of the stitches.  I love how the stitches in one panel then become the background in the next panel...it blends everything together nicely...clever pattern, so give it a try!

I just wanted to thank you for the pattern!  I made one, a bit larger, using basically your color theme but with only partial skeins left in my stash!  I think it turned out beautiful and can't wait to give it to a friend who is having a girl this August!

I am also doing my own post with a link back to you...thanks a bunch!

Instead of posting a new post, I am just going to add to this one...another mandala, for a friend in Portland Grin

OK...I know that in each questionnaire, I put down that I love art and that I think felting is magic...I took off any supplies for felting because in my heart of hearts, I know that this is not something I will ever do...well, Belladune must have paid attention to my plight, because....here is what she made me!!!

May I introduce, Agatha and her forever companion, Henri (Henry for you English-speaking people! Grin):

I hope Bella will do a separate post, as I am not even sure how she did this, but I am told that her coat is wet felted and that she is jointed (which means she can sit and pose!)...

I tried to get a good pic of her face...the eyes, lips, and eyebrows are not painted...they are felted in!!!

The tiny turtle has tiny bead eyes!

Thank you, Bella for my art doll...she will join the art doll made for me by Phizzychick when I first came to Craftster long ago! (yes, a tiny collection, but hopefully, a growing one!)

Oh, and I can't stop touching her hair!  It feels like it still has lanolin in it...so soft and wild!

carol--it is good when a young person likes something that is handmade!  The dress is very nice and is quite the rage in that age group!  Lovely job on getting it to come together with so many details, ie. ruffles!!!

Mixedpibbles---love the wax tote bag...so large...the inset is a nice way to show off that special fabric...and you have given me an idea of how to use some beautiful African fabric sent to me by elderflower!

Also, I totally understand not wanting to can that much...I cut my canning in half, at least due to the amount of work!  lol I tell people that if they want a jar next year, they have to bring me back their old ones...believe me, I get most of my jars back and only have to buy the tops! Grin

that1girl--what a mix of items!  I love your bright combo of pinks and turquoise yarn! Grin

why? Because brights are my new favorites now as well!  Here are two mandalas I crocheted:

A baby afghan for yet another baby boy "great-nephew":

I think that puts me at 53 Projects! Grin

10  Mandala Band Wagon in Crochet: Completed Projects by alwaysinmyroom on: April 14, 2015 06:24:57 AM
I generally do not have cotton yarn on hand, so I had to order some in order to make these...and now that I have made a couple, following some excellent patterns (one purchased and one free), I am so addicted!  Basically, they are a fancy, colorful doily, sewn onto a hoop...easy peasy...and you can probably use just about any doily pattern, so I plan on rummaging through some vintage patterns to see what else I can make!

I used a bit larger hook, since the tiny hooks were hard using the spitty yarn...so I had to buy a bigger hoop than was called for in the pattern.  Pretty easy to adapt to whatever size you want!  I also learned a few new crochet techniques, including how to crochet into rows below, how to make crochet bobbles, and how to weave in as I crocheted...pretty good stuff!

This one was the free...I'll post a link here as soon as I find it! FREE pattern on Ravelry

This one I purchased from Etsy member,ATERGcrochet
