wow! youre my hero. i started a camo blanket like this for my dh and its taking me FOREVER to finish it. its so heavy and hard to work with now. lol. LOVE the randomness of the color scheme!

oh my goodness i feel your pain! by the end, this thing was a BEAST to flip around when i finished a row... i was lugging it around in a rather large tote in the beginning but then it got too big for that haha

Hey friends!

I had a huge stash of mismatched variegated yarn piled up in my craft closet so I decided - hey! lets make the world's ugliest blanket!

After a few months off and on, it is finally complete Smiley please excuse the unmade bed and iPhone photos (couldn't resist instagramming...)

It's just about Queen-sized - Double Crochet - worsted weight yarn for the most part Smiley





and a close up of some stitches:



Such a simple, mindless project - very relaxing! My sister has already placed an "order" for a "wedding version" for her and her soon-to-be hubby Wink

I might also do some calculations to find out exactly how many stitches there are in this blanket Cheesy

I'm so glad you liked everything Kara!!!

The wooden figures were a fun thrift store find... I think its supposed to be Noah and the ark animals - they were just too cool to pass up (especially for 99 cents hehe!)

some of those handmade items (the clay faces, the crochet flower...) were in other whimsy jars i've collected over the years Cheesy

yay!!

also - I LOVE that camera strap!!

I received from Belladune this weekend!! Came home from a trip to Long Island to find this happy package on my doorstep! (sorry in advance, i took a ton of pictures haha)

close up of what was in the main container: look at the sock owl!!! my boyfriend and i have a weird love of argyle so this was perfecto Wink




GORGEOUS yarny bracelets


poly-clay adorableness (CUPCAKES AND CATS! and buttons and beads!)




a TEA wallet! I love the fabric choices!


Halloween themed goodness! including: ribbons, beads, and a pair of socks! also some very cool headstone candles!




the containers:


EVERYTHING! notice the bag of delicious peppermint tea! (ps my bf thought this was something ELSE that is green and leafy that comes in plastic baggies... until he smelled it, of course - what kinda crafters does he think we are??)


and a quick pic of something that made me smile - plastic nesting dogs! the two little ones fit inside the big one


THANK YOU SO MUCH, BellaDune!! i love everything you sent my way Cheesy
