OK I finished crocheting out my MYB! I say, there was more yarn left over than I thought there would be. Turns out the stuff in the middle was more wound than the stuff on the outside. No wonder she couldn't fit more in there!
I opened it Monday to this:
Then I worked my ass off all day and didn't get to do anything. So Tuesday, after I finally finished Han Solos costume (it was good enough for ToTing but not for my OCD mind) I started working on crocheting it out. I love that! It's funny when you're sitting there in the groove of crocheting away and suddenly you look down and Oh! What is this that fell off the ball?! Nice! Anyway, here's the look. Like I said, not all of it was in the ball but all of it is in the pictures, lots of pictures! I hate it when people just take group shots of everything and you have to sit and stare at it for 10 minutes to be able to pick out what was actually in there. It all looks like a tangled mess that way!
Extra yarns! All handspun? I love the red with the beads in it. Ooh, it's nice. I remember when she posted this on FF a few weeks ago, I think. Love it!
Handmade things! 3 KNIT toys, a handspun-wrapped bangle, and KNIT wrist warmers. I love knit things!
Fabrics, zipper, bias tape, embroidery thread, Sublime pattern, pattern transfer pens, beaded string, and some hand-dyed silk hankies. Ooh, those silk hankies intimidate me.
Buttons buttons buttons! Stitch markers, roses (art yarn add ins?) and some little rubber circles. I wonder what those are for. More art yarn add ins? I love the buttons! The leaf one is my favorite. I have a jar of buttons me and the kids like to play with and I think the leaf one will be a big hit the next time I make play dough.
Last but certainly not least (maybe most?!) The scarf I crocheted while dropping all these goodies. Not blocked because I don't really know how to do that and I don't think it would matter too much in my house anyway, but you can still the pattern, right? And to think, the whole time I was making it I kept thinking there wouldn't be enough yarn in the ball to finish it. I was so wrong. Look at the big ball of what was left over! I could have done another 4-row repeat on each side! Funny: our resident Queen of the Undead uses the same yarn/fiber supplier I have been for the past couple years. The name of this color way was "peacock" which I also happen to have bought in a different yarn from her and made some Mary Jane Slippers. So now I have a scarf to match my slippers! Isn't that totally sweet?! I love it. It has always been one of my favorite colorways from Kate McMullin.
Wow. It needs to be March already so I can quit being so wordy. Sorry you guys!
