Knitting anything wearable is scary to me! Nice job, butterflyangel.

More of my swap items were received so I can finally share!

Project #5 - Olliblocks

The ones in the picture are the ones I made for my son (zoo animals and monster & superheroes). I made 5 more sets of the zoo animal blocks for a swap partner (60 blocks all together!). I also whipped up some a fabric bag for each swap set.

Project #9 & 10 - Cross stitched pincushion and glass bead pins

My swap partner wanted this specific pin cushion, and I customized the colors for her. The glass bead pins were a little extra surprise. Smiley

Aw,what an adorable baby! and the cowls and blankets are cute,too!
'please enter your pin'. *snerk* That's clever!
I worked on a necklace I'd started in december, and it's mostly done. It's a choker, and I have to figure out what kind of adjustable closure to use.

I've been experiencing a lot of knitting machine woes, which lead me to the point of feeling that it's probably in my best interest to just learn how to hand knit.  I have a pile of knit goods on my wishlist and it's time to do something about that.  So here we go, another scarf to get me used to the garter stitch.

off to a slow start this year as I'm knitting, happily this one took a week not 13 months like the purple one I made  Grin

You did wonderful, dreadlocklove. I like your form of colors. Hand knitting is a bit of a pain. I have not tried any in many years. But good for you with just starting with some simple stitching. And to learn the easy patterns. Then grow from there into the more challenging things. Don't let it overwhelm you. Or set your sites too high. Just work with what you have and are comfortable with. Experiment with different fibers. Some work easier than others. There are a few yarns that I just use to make bows on packages  Grin They are crap to stitch with. Keep going. You are moving strong, I can tell.


NEW REQUEST: Need quilting fabric with ONLY purple, grey, green. Solids or Prints in any combination/shades, but NO OTHER COLORS ALLOWED. HELP! They are hard to find.

I just updated my list...two item knocked off....demolition of a closet and a new sewing machine.

My art journaling class I am teaching is taking up space right now. First night tonight. Wish me well. Then back to crafting. I keep adding items to the list, but it's only January! Someone asked me last night what was I going to make for the craft fair (in November). I have no idea past the usual mittens and stuff. More dolls, more wood blocky ornaments.....hmmmm.

Must craft....must craft.....

Dreadlocklove - you should definitely try hand-knitting. It is not as scary as some says. You just have to practise, and you can do that while watching TV. At least, if you aren't making something very complicated.
I like your shawl, by the way, it looks so soft and warm!
Kookaloo: your first sweater-west took you 13 months, the second a week. I suppose it means your third will be done in half a day?  Grin Roll Eyes. I looks lovely, and I'm impressed by your speed.
I understand why you gave up knitting two socks at a time, Butterflyangel, it sounds very complicated. And the pair you made looks very good.
What sweet baby-stuff, Coulsen. I think my favourite is the pink set. You must have been very busy!
Your olliblocks are pretty and funny, AofC. Did you draw the pictures yourself?
