I just finished some cool stuff for a swap. but I fear I'm not as good at crochet as I wish I was =/ or maybe I'm just being over critical.
I'm working on a hooded dress with some warm fuzzy grey/purple yarn.
also I bought some rice so I can make stuffed animals that you then stuff with the rice so you can microwave them and make them all warm to snuggle with. then I gotta make everyone christmas presents. I saw an adorable pattern in Crochet today for a tea set that I think I might make for my bf's cousins for christmas if I don't completely procrastinate. I'm also thinking of making bath sets for the girls on my christmas list.
I always have a billion ideas and only half of them ever get done

I am working on a Link costume, from The Legend of Zelda, for my 7 year-old daughter. It is mostly crochet, but I have to sew the tunic together. So far it's fun to make. Then I was informed by my 10 year-old daughter that I will be making a Princess Zelda costume next. I haven't figured that one out yet........ Undecided

When in doubt; don't.

im swamped!  Im working on my 12 days of christmas swap, finishing up a craft item for a personal swap.  I need to make curtains for my BIL.  and I have to make 3 quilts for Christmas presents.  Plus, a few smaller items for Christmas presents too, like a beanie, a scarf, and a few other things.   Grin

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Let's see, I'm working feverishly on my Halloween costume (not going to say what it is since I'll probably enter the Craftster Challenge with it); and Christmas ornaments for a church Bazaar.  Oh! And a twin-sized blanket for my cousin to give to her daughter for Christmas.

After those three things, I have a list as long as my leg of Christmas presents to make!

I'm working on a three toned rose/pink ripple afghan which will take forever.  I'm only on the first row and it took me over 30 minutes.  I'm an experienced crocheter so I was very surprised at how long it would take.  I'm also working on a free form afghan which is less like free form in terms of texture, but it is more or less just attaching random unfinished projects together.

When my grandmother died almost exactly a year ago, I inherited her crochet collection and lots of unfinished projects.  A lot of the yarn was trashed due to mold, rot, and other things (it was stored in a storage facility outside where there was an apparent leak), but there was also a lot of good yarn.

I also received tons of unfinished projects as well as finished projects.  The greatest thing was a pair of wedding gloves that were incredibly intricate and made of really thin crochet thread.

I'm also in two swaps right now, so I'm busy, busy, busy!

Happy crocheting everyone!
