So many pins from your projects, lindy!!  I love the suncatcher and the t-shirts...and that hoop is just so nicely done!

I sort of feel like a slacker this month...Grin...

Here are two baskets I crocheted, inspired by something else I made that I can't post yet...they are made with leftover yarn to hold ,,,my leftover yarn! Grin...no wonder my stash never goes away!!

What is a hat, but a basket for the head?

lol Mio!  I know you can relate to this...the pattern called for back and front post double crochet...it made the stitches too stiff for a hat and too heavy...but perfect for a basket! ha ha

Those baskets are great, but I'm going that's not all of your leftover yarn, or I'll feel like a hoarder... I'd need at least two kiddie-sized swimming pool baskets to hold mine... O.o

And I think it's multiplying, I keep finding little balls of yarn all the place that I don't remember... Wink

I have plans for a big stash-busting project, but then I start thinking about how nice it is to have all these random colors of yarn... I need to get over that and just get my hoard under control. First the yarn, then the fabric!

Okay, as long as that's just a little portion of it!  Wink

A bracelet kit I finally managed to do, though I don't really like it as a bracelet - but it twists when you let it hang and I think it would make an awesome addition to a set of hair falls - it also would make a really nice decorative ribbon-like embellishment to a dance top!



And some more projects I've been sitting on, my "fill-a-medium-box" random swap partner received, so...

Button and bead hoop, I love these and can't stop making them!  Luckily, one was on her pinterest...



Crochet Mary Janes, from a pattern on her pinterest:



A multi-strand bracelet, inspired by a pin of hers - it was really hard getting all the strands even CLOSE to the same length, I didn't even realize how tough that would be (seed beads are NOT a uniform size, no matter what they say...):



Double-knit wall hanging of her ranch brand (I swore I'd never do double knitting again....) Front (or back):



And back (or front):



Crocheted Shaun the Sheep (I really need to start looking at how big things will be before I start them, this is the second - and yet, not the last... I've already started on something ELSE that's way bigger than I thought! - time an ami pattern has deceived me!)



Washcloths and soap holder (from a pattern on her pinterest), crocheted:



And LSU themed crocheted coasters (from a pattern on her pinterest).  They don't look purple in the picture, but I swear they are in real life:



And it's off to make more crafts for more swaps, wheeeeee!  Cheesy  Whatever did I do before Craftster?  Other than my laundry and dishes?  Wink

EDIT: Almost forgot, another set of Operation Beautiful monster cards to leave... this time I an keeping the original ATC-sized drawings, and made copies with the sayings on them:

This time I decided to make ATCs and copy them, making it a little faster to abandon the cards!  I have 8 new designs (some very reminiscent of the old ones!):



And through the magic of modern technology, I have 30 cards to abandon!  I think I may get some friends to help with this...

lots of lovely crochet items...those Mary Janes are fabulous!

Also, curious about the doubleknitting...is it difficult?  How did you learn it?  I would like to try a project..simple one...
