Those dresden plates are so cheerful!  Awesome work.  Can't wait to see what they become.

I have a few projects to post before the month ends.  I'm reaching back to April for some of these - I have not been particularly organized or crafty these past few weeks.

Exhibit 1 - Socks!

I don't think I've posted them here, yet.  They're my first pair and took forever!  But they used up nearly two balls of sock yarn I'd been hoarding since 2010.

Exhibit 2 - Doll Dress

Sundress by AluminumDryad, on Flickr
I make a lot of these, but they're quick and relatively easy.  (And the dolls don't complain if my finishing techniques are a little wonky.)

Exhibit 3 - Dishcloths

114 Knitting by AluminumDryad, on Flickr
That's two more skeins out of the stash.  I hate to think how long they'd been waiting to be used, probably since my last dishcloth kick 5 years ago.

Those socks are incredible...and of course, I always love your doll clothing...

I am down to about three washcloths but just don't feel like making them...maybe if I sent someone my stash of cotton yarn... Grin

Kookaloo_Starr, the dresden plates look great. The quilting in this craftalong has been awesome.

gaudiknight, love the socks!

My latest destash is not nearly as lovely but very practical. I decided to switch Helga, my hedgehog, over to fleece bedding (she use to have the paper bedding from the pet store). Used up a big (somehow already stained up) piece of fleece and shredded some of the scraps.

She is not impressed but as soon as I put her house back she snuggled down and went back to sleep so I guess it's Helga approved. If the fleece bedding works out I think I will invest in some prettier designs.



While looking for my fleece I found my first failed stencil attempt from about 8 years ago and decided to braid up some dog toys, one which has already been destroyed.

aww--I hope the fleece bedding works out for you!

My big dog also loves those braided toys, but they stretch too much and get ruined easily...I bought some cheap nylon rope, wrapped the fleece strips around the pieces, then braided...they are a lot stronger now!

Always that is a great idea with the rope!

I made a snowman wreath/figure/thing this week when I got home from vacation. The outline is made out of some styrofoam packaging I dug out of the trash at work. I then wrapped it in white fabric strips, then crocheted a little scarf and hat for him. I think he needs something else but I can't really decide on what.
