Lovely!
I can see making the little boxes as stand-alone treats for neighbors and as either one as  "jewelry" for gifts for family!

Did you have a pattern or tutorial you can share?

10 days in and 29 pages already!

I'm here...again. I'm hoping I'll be more diligent this year then I was last. I'm currently working on three knitting  projects, all from stash. Hopefully I'll be done one or maybe two by the end of the day. I'm snowed in so not working!

I've not done too bad so far, I've managed to make a totebag and a doll dress entirely from stash stuff.  I need to clean the craft room, though, before I go any farther! >.< It's a total wreck.  Cry

Quazicat, those ornaments are amazing! You have such a great eye for color.  Smiley

I'm working on a hat with some lambs wool yarn that has been in my stash for a while now. I did a gauge swatch, but still ended up making the hat too big! At least I've managed to knit this hat (so far) without getting turned around and making my first few rows inside-out. I think I can save the hat with a border of single crochet. It's super-soft yarn, and I want to wear it when we get the -0F wind chills that are forecast for mid-week.

The color is a little darker than my pic. I used a frogged ice blue sweater that had a tight and ugly turtle neck. My dye was black cherry Kool Aid. The color I ended up with reminds me of wisteria or hydrangea blooms. I love this yarn. I'm glad I'm finally using it.  Smiley

I love those ornaments! It sounds like they were super cheap, but they certainly don't look it! I think I'm going to have to try and make some of those myself.

I used up some of my MASSIVE paper stash last night by covering a bunch of little boxes that will house various craft supplies. It's rather exciting at first to go through the paper I have on hand...until I remember I've got a whole separate bin waiting for me in the garage.  Shocked

I tried the Kanzashi flowers once, I guess the glue I used didn't work so well!! I like your flower!!

 I love the dyed yarn.  Such a delicious purple!! 

Qazi: as always, love your paper work!!

What lovely yarn--I never thought to dye ugly reclaimed yarn!  I have a huge ball of light brown yarn from a frogged sweater that I just can't get into the color...I bet it would dye a dark green!

I finally got sick and tired of all those little balls of yarn I had leftover from other projects so I knit a lot of them into one big scarf--twice!  I did the whole thing in garter stitch and hated it...so I switched to stockinette and now it is blocked and drying...It did not make a huge dent physically, but mentally, I feel like those little balls of annoyance are gone! Cheesy

Go for it AiMR! It is easy to re-dye reclaimed yarn. If it is mainly wool or other protein fibers, you can dye it with kool-aid.

I did this a few weeks ago and the colors are just gorgeous.

Actually, I was wondering if it was ok to dye wool--I was worrying about the shrinkage...is the kool aid a cold dye process?  I know the rit dye says to use boiling water...so I guess to dye my yarn I am going to have to unwind the balls into something like shanks? It is worth the effort since I have almost three balls of it sitting around in their ugliness.. Cheesy
