So many wonderful things!  I love the whale and the dinosaur is grooovy....

The tuffet is great -- I can imagine my cats would love a perch like that.  And those hats are great. The blue one is beautiful and the rainbow is so happy-looking!

I'm still slogging thru catching up from fund drive, but I went down to my parents this weekend and got a little knitting done.  (I think I took every single project I'm currently working on with me, and before I left this morning sat down and did 20 rows on my mothers scarf for the Special Olympics...)

46. A Christmas cowl
Started and finished this this weekend, and I love it!  A fun pattern on size 10 needles, and it took about half a skein of nice $7 yarn.  This will be an Xmas present for a firend who has all these shades of blue in her eyes, but I think Ill be making several more of them for other people.



47. Elf boots
This is such a fun pattern; you essentially knit a strip of six squares, with two additional squares of to either side.  Then you sew them up like assembling origami, felt them, and then poof! thick, wooly, warm bedroom slippers!  Because you felt them, they start out huuuuuge.  The yellow and green ones, pre-felting, were literally the size of shoeboxes.  Now theyre about a size 8.  Took longer to knit that I expected; Im scaling back my initial declaration that I was going to make them for every person I know


And Im still working on this jacket, for the daughter of a friend.  Im under the gun, tho Ive just been invited to her 2nd birthday party two weeks from now.  Its one of the more ambitious projects Ive undertaken, and I love the pattern.

Yofi--love the felted wool slippers!

Hope you get the lovely sweater done in time!  Sometimes when I can't make a deadline, I roll up a piece of the yarn and make a card...Cheesy

I agree.  Love those felted wool slippers!  Cheesy

And alwaysinmyroom, I am totally stealing that idea.  ...but with fabric, since I'm not a yarnie.  Cheesy

*** Warning lots of pictures!***

Hi everyone!  I started a full-time job (on top of full time school and full-time care taking) in July and have been lurking here with no contribution since then, in awe of the crafty creativity and feeling guilty that I had nothing to post . . . and then over the past little while I have been on a crafting binge!  So now I have some pics.  I have long since abandoned my list (though I think next year I will do monthly mini-lists like some of you!)  and I have no idea what number I am on but vow to keep track better from here on!  Okay, so here are my projects of late:

I made a large set of serial killer marble magnets for a weird friend (I dreamt about serial killers for a week after -- now some need repair so I am gearing up for nightmares!)



Two smaller sets of marble magnet pics of a friend's niece and nephew for her and mom for Thanksgiving hostess gifts:



A WIP sock:



Three scarves (the start of scarves for my team at work for CHristmas):



And the tour-de-force -- turning the man i care for into Sonny Bono for Halloween!:



The Sonny Bono costume almost put me over the edge -- I am not a great seamstress, so it is wonky, but that makes it even more hilarious.  The wig is made from yarn and a hair highlighting cap.  Took for freaking ever.  He loves it though, and it is so funny it makes it worth it.  Now to make his gf into Cher before Saturday night . . . pics to follow!

Thanks for the ongoing inspiration!

rockon--that is one hilarious costume!!  I swear I knew immediately who it was!!!  The pants are just the best...omg--plaid and bell bottomed!!

gift tags out of junk mail sounds like a great recycle project...I save old Christmas cards for that...I should get going on them soon!

Deeder your toadstool looks so comfy.

Yofi I love the elf slippers. I need to make some slippers for my husband I wonder if he would like these?

rockon go you for still finding time for craftiness even being so busy. The costume cracked me up.
