Sheepblue - that ball of yarn is nuts. Did that thing take you forever to dye?

Haha, not too long to dye - forever to dry though. And then winding it up was a chore!

Glad you like it curiousfae! The card is handstamped but made by the awesome ArtsyCandice to celebrate the Woman's March last year - I thought it was appropo since you and I were both at the March this year too (though we didn't know it, and didn't meet up bah!)

Whoa the gallery is exploding - I love it all  Cheesy

I received from curiousfae last night and was spoiled completely!

First I pulled out this new project bag and matching sticker! That'll show all the people that keep asking me about my "knitting"

Then there were these neat matching bags that were hiding a new pair of scissors (needed!!), MFM themed stitch markers (!!), and the best labels to include with my finished projects - in case you can't read them I showcased my favorites: "Made with Love. And a little wine. And probably some swearing." "Did you deserve this fine hand crafted item from me? Only time will tell." "No need to thank me. Your look of total awe and envy of my handiwork is enough to satisfy me."

Next was some labels to include on my crocheted bits so no one will ever forget I made them!  Cheesy

For the crocheted item curiousfae made me TWO trivets and a kickass mug to show off. I seriously looked at the trivets for a while trying to figure out the stitches she used.

And the final piece!! Crocheted rainbow earrings!! Love them  Cheesy Cheesy I've been in love with finding unique jewelry pieces and this fits to a T.

Thank you so much curiousfae!! I love it all, and will put it all to good use  Grin

(Also can't wait to meet in person - curse MI winters!)

Everyone's stashbusting projects are fantastic! I should probably go evaluate my stash and see what I can bust as well.

My swap package for the Hooker's Only swap was received so I can post my first crafted items for the new year!
A group shot - I dyed some wool yarn for my medium crafted item. My partner loves rainbows so I went for a rainbow speckled effect. I picked the best one for sending. I also made her a crocheted/embroidered pin to share our MFM love (it's a podcast, check it out!). Then I decided to add a pair of simple but unique earrings to the bunch (I made some for me too hehe). And then stenciled a plain canvas bag for her future WIPs  Wink

So here's a fun question for y'all: What's the most favorite thing you've ever crocheted?

If I had to pick just one, probably the tiny crochet sweater I made for a wee taxidermied (faux) tiger.  Cheesy

Dang it, the stitches I am making are so teensy I have to keep taking breaks. I think I get in about 10 mins max before my hands say "quit it!" and I have to do something else for a while. Oh well, I'll get 'er done. It's a good exercise in patience, not exactly something I have a lot of, lol.

Ooh I love tiny crochet! I'm excited to see what you're up to. Can't say my hands thank me for it either, but the result is always so cute. The smallest I've attempted is two strands of embroidery floss - I've seen some work out there done with sewing thread but even I have limits  Cheesy
