My partner is the birthday swap received her goodies!

I made her pale grey fingerless mitts (I love this pattern and I probably have 50 shades of grey... Grin)...

A cupcake container (it opens to hold trinkets or candy!)...

and a market bag (love this pattern, too!)

I also finished one of three pixilated quilt blocks and three Chinese lantern blocks:

kookie--we appreciate the updates...you are using your time in such a powerful, energizing way... that doily is quite lovely as well...let's hope for a speedy recovery...in the meantime, we are enjoying your doilies...

OK, a simple project just in time for the 4th of July holidays: wreath form, Dollar Tree garlands, stash ribbon

Look what I am going to repurpose!

My brother found it at a yard sale and brought it to me yesterday...I could use it for it's original purpose of holding sewing notions, but I already have that under control...what else can I use it for?  Ideas?

Should I paint it or leave it as is?

I was thinking of turning it on its side (the legs are missing...) and making it into a mega shrine...hubby said he could mount it on the wall (or else it can't be open using those hinging things...)...What do you think?

5  Checkerboard, Stripes, and then laziness set in... in Crochet: Completed Projects by alwaysinmyroom on: June 29, 2015 07:37:37 AM
A friend of mine, kbrison, sent me the most interesting checkerboard scarf pattern. I thought I would try it out to make a scarf and hat for another friend of mine as an early Christmas gift (I will be giving it to her in October...)...

Well, the pattern was challenging for me and I got impatient, so I switched to stripes...and then those got challenging for me, so I started just plain crochet...but of course, I had to make both halves match, so I had to reverse repeat the pattern I started...

I think it turned out just fine for gift giving! Grin

6  Possum Yarn Scarf--Old Shale Pattern in Knitting: Completed Projects by alwaysinmyroom on: June 29, 2015 07:03:02 AM
I received the most unusual yarn from jemimah in a swap:  it is made with New Zealand possum fur!  It is really soft and drapes nicely,

I found this pattern on Ravelry, which I thought was perfect for the type of yarn.

Close-up of stitch pattern:

It can be worn several ways and seems perfect for cooler days and nights.

I am hoping that a mod friend of mine in Atlanta likes the color...because if she does, I am sending it to her..Grin.

I finished my ongoing leftover skeins afghan.  It has been a WIP for only a few months, but I became obsessed with using up all of those leftover skeins from other projects!

Some colors, I still have leftovers, but I managed to use up all of some of the colors except for the smallest of yardage!  I am sick of making scrap afghans now that it is hot...

that1girl--I bet those hats are making a lot of people happy this week! YAY!

Here is my Every Day People hat. It is a free pattern on Ravelry. It is a fast crochet and can be done so many ways.  I made it a lot slouchier because I like that look. The stitch is one I never used before... I like it!

10  My own Modern Cowl! in Knitting: Completed Projects by alwaysinmyroom on: June 29, 2015 06:15:26 AM
I was really impressed with the design work of 3RabbitsPatterns when I saw this post.

I had some leftover LB Amazing yarn, so I thought I would see if I could follow a pattern.  Thankfully, the designer was able to help me in her blog, because I got a bit confused at first.  But once I got going, this was really a fun and interesting pattern!  I love the texture and the look. I only had enough yarn to do two rounds instead of three, so this one is not as lush as the original.  I think it still turned out fine! (with only a couple of mistakes! Grin)

I have my eye on some yummy mohair to make another one for the winter and maybe for a few gifts.
