I love that granny square! The colors are gorgeous!

I've been procrastinating about the bookmark swap, so I've been crocheting. Embarrassed
But hey, I finished a blankie for my mom's chihuahuas and finished off some yarn in the process! And the ends are woven in, which for me is a real achievement.



 Roll Eyes You can see where I ran out of green and pink. Roll Eyes I wanted to do a ripple blanket because the only crocheted FO that my mom's ever made was a ripple afghan, so I felt like I was doing some heritage crafting (or something).

Good use of that yarn, gaudiknight!

Also love the colors in the doggie blanket!

You guys are killing me not being able to post your bookmarkers!  I love those and keep a stack on my bookshelf!  They also make great gifts!

ok so I have 11 squares made so far on my loom and I am down to one large skien of yarn.

I also made 3 pairs of earring yesterday not much stash stuff but some. And I have another set started. Now I have to make something to hold these earrings in a nice way.  I think this way.

Those earring holders are excellent!  I am so bad about just throwing mine in a dish and then having to scramble for pairs...I have earring holders but they are a pain...hope you don't mind if I borrow your idea for my favorite pairs!  I found a boatload of wooden hoops when I was cleaning up my embroidery threads and junk drawer!

Also, I apologize, but what is that next to the yarn?  A loom?  How does it work?  Did you make it?

I have seen another brand at hobby lobby. You make squares that can be joined for blankets. I have looked at them as i tend to gravitate to anything fiber. I haven't used the small loom things I have though. I have a whole collection of tools I don't use.

beth - those earring hoops are cool. I've been meaning to make some holders with some net fabric I've got but hadn't worked out what to use as a frame.
