Lillianpearl - That is the coolest-looking spindle I've seen!

alwaysinmyroom -
Those bookmarks looks great!

I've been busy working on some swap projects, so no pictures to post right now. But I am using stash for them, so I'll be able to post something soon. Smiley

a coconut spindle...and newspaper yarn! Inconceivable... Wink

alwaysinmyroom...love the bookmark idea.  I needed to find a way to use up some cardboard in the bias tape/ric-rac pkgs! Not to mention the small moutain of scraps acumulating lately!

off to look for some fabric for swap items...then to knit!
happy crafting, everyone!

lol, I should definitely be in this craftalong... I swore myself off buying new supplies a few months ago, and I have about 7 large bins of yarn, and all sorts of other stuff I need to get through.

Hrm, I think I'm going to have to make me (and others) some bookmarks...

I think the newspaper yarn would do well for crocheted baskets. I'm not entirely sure how you crochet a basket, or even how you do it with newspaper yarn, but I'm sure someone, somewhere has found a way to make it doable.

I don't know how to crotchet so I can't answer that specifically, but apparently newspaper yarn is surprisingly strong. I have a few projects lined up to try it out (with knitting and weaving) so I will let you know!
