Oooh, I love the fingerless gloves.  I've been eyeing the pattern for the lace & buttons one for a while, but I tend to stick to the basics.

Speaking of mitts, I finished up a pair, too.  Technically the yarn was from a friend's stash, but she asked me to do something with it, since she was at a loss.  So she was destashing and got a new pair of mitts, and I got to play with new yarn.  Win/win!

I also used up a bunch of supplies making up a scrapbooky thing for a swap, but didn't get any pictures, nor did I keep track of how much I used.  It wasn't enough to put a dent in the paper stash at any rate.

How did September happen already?  Time for Themes!

pencils in a cup by rhett maxwell, on Flickr

Color: Your favorite color.
Pattern: Plaid
For: Organizing.  In the US kids are going back to school, and all the school supplies in the stores are mighty tempting.  Maybe you can make yourself something to store the 3 million colored pencils you bought on sale. 
Challenge: We've all bought new materials so we could start a new craft, but never got around to actually sitting down and learning it.  Perhaps this is the month to finally do so?

I have some de-stashing to report, although it is a month late.

I made the "Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks" pattern twice in July because it was such a great pattern.

Once in variegated...

And then in solid.

I finished up most of another scarf, then stalled because I couldn't find the instructions for the final stage before binding off.  Hopefully it will turn up soon.

August has been a bit of a bust on the de-stashing front.  I started working on a shawl, but the stash yarn I had chosen for the project just wasn't working correctly, so I had to do some emergency yarn shopping while on vacation.  Yarn makes a great souvenir, and at least this time I cast on and knit most of it before it made it home to the stash.

August Themes

FREE Refreshing Orange Slice Creative Commons by Pink Sherbet Photography, on Flickr

Color: Orange
Pattern: fruits & veggies
For: Traveling, whether your summer holidays are coming to a close, or haven't yet begun, make something for your next trip on the open road or in a hot air-balloon, or whatever your preferred method of transportation may be.
Challenge: Host a crafternoon.  Invite a friend or two (or more) over for craft time, and try to use as much stuff from your stash as possible rather than buying new supplies for the occasion.  New eyes may find ways of using things that never occurred to you.

Returned from the grandparents sans acrylic yarn.  Success!  However, instead I now have a garbage bag full of 1970s nylon macrame rope (going straight to the goodwill) and another giant garbage bag full of crochet thread.   For some reason I feel I should save some of that, given that I've just started learning thread crochet.  Awesome doilies up there, by the way!

July Themes

Space Texture 011 by Chrisser, on Flickr

Color: Blue
Pattern: Stars and planets
For: Christmas in July! If you make a present now, and put it away safely, that's one less you'll have to worry about when the holiday crunch time comes. Just remember where you've stashed it away.
Challenge: Try to use the object or material in the stash that you've had the longest.

Folks have some awesome projects on here!  I know I often slow down when summertime rolls around, but that doesn't seem to be a problem for others.

I've got a stockpile of projects I haven't updated, so forgive the super long post.

First of all, the obligatory lapghans.

Pop Square by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

That finishes up the latest batch of acrylic.  I'm visiting the grandfolks next week, and if they try to send me home with more yarn, I might cry.  I haven't been able to work on my own stash for ages and ages.

And some more ConKerr pillowcases.  I set up to mass produce them last month, but didn't get around to it until this week.  There are a few more cut out and ready to go, but I've run out of steam for now.

(All from stash)

(had to buy a little for this one)

(the flannel shrank more than expected, so this one is a tad short)

June Themes

thread and needle #1 by mr.beaver, on Flickr

Color: Rainbow
Pattern: Animals. And it doesn't have to be animal print unless you want to interpret it that way, or if you have lots of zebra print spandex lurking in your stash.
For: Kiddos – yours or someone elses', or simply the young at heart.
Challenge: Six month mark. Time to re-organize, take stock, and make plans for the second half of the year.

I'm up to 3 quilts for 2012.  Yet another disappearing nine-patch, and a quilt-top I made last summer.  It's tied, which I hope still counts, since I could not for the life of me get our treadle machine to cooperate long enough to quilt.  It really cut the finishing time down, but I don't think I like it as much as the crinkly-quilted ones I've made.

Millie is so excited I actually took her somewhere fun!  She had a grand time on our day-trip to DC.

Waiting for the Metro:

(It's dark down there, I'm amazed this picture came out at all)

A Monument!

(I may kinda spent the day in art galleries and therefore don't have as many pictures of Millie as she would like.)

Random Public Art:

She may be giving bad chess advice.  I couldn't tell who was winning.
