Thank you, LovelyMiss!

apm, I was playing a card game with my family and crocheting the slippers when it wasn't my turn, and they took me a couple hours.
As for the headband, i didn't follow a pattern. I used this post as a general guideline, though.
I CO 10 or 12 on size 15 needles and did seed stitch until it fit snugly around my head (with the yarn and needle size and the stitch, there's plenty of stretch, so it has to be snug). Then BO and tied the ends together. Then i knit a small rectangle that could fit around to make that bow/turban look and tied those ends together. Voila.
Once you get back to practicing with needles, i bet you could bust out a few of those.

plaidpineapple, those earring holders look great. And the earrings! What a great idea for the oatmeal container.

cloudsnapper, i love the fabric you used!

I love that galaxy material!

I'm working my way through my saved crochet patterns. It's a good way to use up yarn and the stuffing. I finished another Doctor Who alien today, from another free ravelry pattern. This time it's the Weeping Angel.

Weeping angel! Nice!

Oh, by the way, nisforneville. I posted about my snowflakes. I put my notes in there, and they might not be the easiest to understand... but there they are.

Oh, wow! I have been busy (and then sick) and was away from Craftster for a while... I come back to find so many people have already posted their crafts! How great! Loving everything that everyone has posted so far. Really crazy about the scarf (from many pages ago) and the earring holder.

Here's my first project. It's a perpetual calendar, composed of numbered trinkets. It didnt de-stash me very much since most of the items were small, but it did get some of the great trinkets that were stored in shoeboxes out into the light of day!



It's not white, but it is sort of "stripes" (in a way...) And it is certainly "for me". I love looking at it on my wall!

Love that perpetual calendar!

I get these wonderful uniforms because I am a Correctional Officer by trade. The offenders make them & then we have to fix what they made. I end up cutting off quite a bit of fabric when I do the alterations. I've been making dog toys out of it for my 2 dogs. The material does hold up to some good old wear & tear. Next I think I'm going to start using some of it to make stuffies for my Sister to use in her job. She's the Nursery Coordinator for her church. This material should definitely be able to stand up to toddlers! hahaha

I've started work on my next scarf to make on the knifty knitter. This one is going to be a pink/cream combo. It's for a coworker to give to her wife who is fixing to go overseas to work for a year. I better get cracking on it.

More destashing again this year  This is now my 3rd or 4th year and the stash still doesn't look as if it is getting any smaller. 

January is the month that I spend time making tree ornaments for next Christmas. When I get a chance I will show some photos of the ornaments that I have been making everything for these comes out of the stash.  Nothing new has been purchased for these ornaments.
