I've been making squares for PRR. I have four 12-inch and two more 6-inch completed.



I'm off work tomorrow, so I plan to mail two packages to knit-a-square.

My stash, well, what I can get to at the moment anyway, haha.

Paint, beads, felt, and other odds and ends in containers.


5 bags full of yarn.


More yarn in a hamper and just piled everywhere.


More yarn, cross stitch supplies, and origami paper. In boxes, so out of the way at least, unlike my yarn.


2 packages ready to send off to knit-a-square in South Africa, an unfinished jumper, and 2 more bags of yarn... hard to tell, but it's all there.

A hat and a scarf and 2 more squares for knit-a-square. My first 6" square for Pine Ridge Reservation. I have two packages ready to send off to KAS, then I can find a box for to fill for PRR.

The hat is purple and the scarf is lavender and purple.

It's not much, but I wanted to take a pic before I packed it up, because I forgot to take a pic of 2 of my squares in my last package... Anyway, a hat and a stash-buster square, all for knit-a-square.

Well, I finished my LOVE squares for Knit-a-square, and a few more, along with another hat. I've got my 2nd package all ready to go as soon as I have time to make it to the PO while they're open, and I'm starting to fill up a third as well.



And a bonus with my cat Merlin showing off my work.

I have been busy. I've just been really motivated since I found this group. Smiley

I have made 2 more hats and 5 squares. I'm making LOVE squares with the puff stitch (only have L and O finished right now), and I learned and modified a pattern for a chain stitch square. Still stash busting too!

Mailing off my first package to Knit-a-Square today. I made a puffed duck square to go in it too!

Well I've had a busy weekend of crocheting while watching TV, haha. I have 3 hats and 3 more squares ready to go to knit-a-square. My room looks like a yarn explosion at the moment, so the good news is I'm working through my huge stash, and the items will be going to needy kids. It's a win-win.



katara, the sock monkeys look great so far. I don't think I'd have the patience for that material, especially hand sewing, hehe. Smiley

I now have 6 squares done that I will eventually be sending to knit-a-square. I had never tried the mitred square before, but I feel very confident with it now. The yarn I used is different shades of green, but I'm not sure the color shows in the picture. I really like the puffed heart square too. I will probably make a bunch of those now.

I'm new to the group. I seem to craft for charity at least half of the time anymore, so I figured this would be a good group to join. Smiley

One of my recent donations is 6 hats and a scarf for the homeless, all made with yarn from leftover projects.



I also donate a lot of pet beds to the local animal shelter. Pictures of those can be found on this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=392245.0

I'm looking forward to getting more ideas of things to craft to donate!
