I love this so much! What a perfect execution of a brilliant idea. The reindeer have such personality in their stance. Any tips on getting the hand prints so nice and non-smeary? My two year-old is so squirmy I haven't been able to get a good print of hers.

What a great crafter, teacher, and mom you are! Excellent job on all of this. I especially love the cookies with the numbers.

Beautiful! These are the kinds of projects that make me want to put down my knitting needles and give crochet another try.
I was a knitter for a long time but then I decided that I wanted a granny square blanket and so I had to learn how to crochet. I love it so much more, if only because I don't have to deal with keeping track of a bunch of stitches. It makes it easier to stop and start your work. I learned crochet 100% from online sources so I encourage you to give it another try.

Sure you can block acrylic, take a look. Smiley

That's a great color. I always like to see lace done in something other than white or cream.
I could kiss you! That might be the wine talking again, but thank you so much for passing along this information!

 Grin You're very welcome. I'd suggest practicing on a swatch since there's no going back if you overdo the steam.
Again, wonderful advice--I totally would've just started steaming like crazy and who knows what would've happened! Practice and experiment first.

My mom frequently complains about hating her flabby arms and is always looking for a way to cover them up. Since her birthday is next week, I found this pattern: http://www.naturallycaron.com/projects/aphrodite/aphrodite_1.html and made it for her.
Most important lesson learned with this project? Uh, lay off the wine which I'm trying to figure out a pattern. Despite seeing a picture of the shawl and knowing that it should be somewhat of a triangle in shape, I decided that I should slip stitch and connect the rows instead of that pesky "turn" thing it was telling me to do, thereby making a circle. "How's this gonna work?" I'd think to myself, slogging through a pattern that didn't make a whole lot of sense. I made it all the way through an entire skein before I realized my fatal error. I went through the 7 Stages of Grief, and then set about ripping out a week of crocheting and starting completely over. The good news is the pattern made a whole lot more sense the second time around!
I used Patons Candiana which is pretty soft but, alas, acrylic so I can't really block it. Eh, I'm just glad to finally have finished it!

After seeing Lydia the Strange's adorable slippers http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=127333.0 I just had to have some of my own. I added a flower a la fluffybunnies' pattern http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=365846.0

So cozy.
