Oooh, I love the fingerless gloves.  I've been eyeing the pattern for the lace & buttons one for a while, but I tend to stick to the basics.

Speaking of mitts, I finished up a pair, too.  Technically the yarn was from a friend's stash, but she asked me to do something with it, since she was at a loss.  So she was destashing and got a new pair of mitts, and I got to play with new yarn.  Win/win!

I also used up a bunch of supplies making up a scrapbooky thing for a swap, but didn't get any pictures, nor did I keep track of how much I used.  It wasn't enough to put a dent in the paper stash at any rate.

I love those stripey mitts! And the shawlette is gorgeous. I had a dream last night that I learned to knit. Maybe it's a sign! Cheesy

I haven't been able to post in a while because of family health issues, but I have a lot of crochet projects to share:

I just got my Knit Picks catalogue and I am so tempted to buy yarn to dye...I have been dyeing fabric and paper using natural materials and would love to try it with yarn...

Always, I took a natural dying class over 30 years ago! Lots of varying greens and browns, muted colors. Using different mordants would make the same material different colors! We did get to do one batch with cochineal and one with indigo to get red/purple/blue tones, and would reuse dyebaths to get paler colors. Oh, man...onion skins make a lovely gold/yellow, but you need a lot of them. Ironweed, as bright purple as it is, makes a brown dye. We used tomato vines, elderberries, I forget what else now. But it was a lot of fun!
