The scrubbies are a great way to use up scratchy acrylic yarns. The rougher the yarn, the better. I thought about making a few out of sugar and cream, but in my Missouri climate, they would get a mildew smell in a few hours. Not so much a problem in the winter, but once the warm humid weather comes back...

I would love to try making the nylon netting ones, but I keep reading that the netting breaks a lot, and it's rough on the hands, so maybe that's not something for a new crocheter, unless they already have netting in the stash. Sooner or later, I will try it, though. They look like great scrubbies! Smiley

I found this pattern that interests me, and I may try it with acrylic yarn instead of the sugar and cream and see how it works out. I need a bit more practice crocheting in the round, and this looks like a good project for that:

After I learn it and get better at it, it would make good gifts out of pretty sugar and cream, I think.

ok used up about half of the four skeins of simply soft  yarn I purchased for making hats for charity...I made six hats of these colors...

Baby hat with ear flaps


Child hats with bobbles




I have enough yarn to make another four hats, I think and then I am done with this charity for this year!  Thanks for looking!

ha ha I just realized when I saw the pics that the child hat looks like a toilet paper cosy!! Maybe I need to make one of those!

Real cute! I like the bright colors. I don't think it looks like a tp cozy... It just needs a kid in it! "Good on Ya" for all the charity work!

I love the hats, alwaysinmyroom! Great work! The color combo is really fun, and I'm sure the kids that receive the hats will love them. I don't see anything that makes me think of a TP cozy. Smiley

KLKing is right--they just need a kid's head...I might need to find a teddy bear or something else to use as a model other than my desktop garbage can that I use to throw in "stuff"--thanks!

My future mother-in-law is an amazing human being and an amazing quilter.  She finished off a quilt for me and mailed it to me, and to say thank you I sent her a hat:



The card has a needle-felted flower with a safety pin on the back.  I have way too much sock weight-ish black yarn in my stash.  This is Gloss from Knitpicks, half-double crocheted with two strands held together and the brim improvised from Fabulous and Flirty Crochet.  The quilt was the polar-opposite of destashing and will be posted on the quilt thread momentarily.

Cute kid hats! And that black one is gorgeous! Have to see if the library will order in that book for me...

Ok, I am stash busting still. I've got several baby gift parcels on the go and two swaps but I gotta say, when you're crafting tiny little items like shadow boxes, necklaces, sock creatures, miniatures and taggy blankets it's not much of a stash bust volume-wise, is it? I mean, after days and days of busting my butt it's still as crowded as ever in here. Sheesh. I've gotta start doing some BIG crafts.

I finally finished my doll and absolutely everything came from the stash.  Unfortunately I only just finished it before I had to hand it in for judging. I didn't have time to take any photos.

Now I can finally get back to some paper crafts.  I have so missed playing with paper.

ha ha ha --yeah--somehow the piles do not seem to be going down...I guess I was expecting to free up an entire room or closet...

I keep adding to my paper stash...I mean, inchies take, what, one piece of paper?  gaaaaaaahhh

I succumbed to a late night online shopping binge *hangs head in shame*. Collecting supplies for that Wonderland swap, what is my problem? I have enough stuff to craft for 4 partners already but I just can't help wanting to make ALL my ideas come to life!

Ok, today I'm going to finish up all the half started things that are crowding up my work table and tackle a BIG project. The sweaters for patchwork cushion covers are taking up half the living room floor right now. If I get that under control I'll feel like I actually cleared some space and did something worthwhile. Wish me luck!
