1  The Ugly Blanket - stash bustin' jamboree in Crochet: Completed Projects by claire313 on: January 13, 2012 08:38:05 AM
Hey friends!

I had a huge stash of mismatched variegated yarn piled up in my craft closet so I decided - hey! lets make the world's ugliest blanket!

After a few months off and on, it is finally complete Smiley please excuse the unmade bed and iPhone photos (couldn't resist instagramming...)

It's just about Queen-sized - Double Crochet - worsted weight yarn for the most part Smiley

and a close up of some stitches:

Such a simple, mindless project - very relaxing! My sister has already placed an "order" for a "wedding version" for her and her soon-to-be hubby Wink

I might also do some calculations to find out exactly how many stitches there are in this blanket Cheesy

GORGEOUS yarny bracelets

poly-clay adorableness (CUPCAKES AND CATS! and buttons and beads!)

a TEA wallet! I love the fabric choices!

Halloween themed goodness! including: ribbons, beads, and a pair of socks! also some very cool headstone candles!

the containers:

EVERYTHING! notice the bag of delicious peppermint tea! (ps my bf thought this was something ELSE that is green and leafy that comes in plastic baggies... until he smelled it, of course - what kinda crafters does he think we are??)

and a quick pic of something that made me smile - plastic nesting dogs! the two little ones fit inside the big one

THANK YOU SO MUCH, BellaDune!! i love everything you sent my way Cheesy

WOW just catching up on the gallery - FABULOUS stuff everyone! I LOVE that cameo skull ring (um where on earth did you find a skull cameo?! i love it!) and the magic yarn ball goodness is awesome Cheesy

AQ, Katie is ADORABLE!!! she looks so happy playing with her blocks Cheesy

well i also received from Ms. Asphalt Queen this week Cheesy

She sent me three skeins of the most AMAZING yarn (green silk and red alpaca!), a ton of goregous beads (wood, stone, glass!), and enough ring bases to cover all of my fingers about 5 times each! and all wrapped up in a very cool green/blue tea towel Cheesy

**sorry some of the pics are a little dark, it was quite late when i took these!**

ring bases - i picked out a few of my faves but there are about a billion more in the bag behind them!

beads- i already made one bracelet with the green tubes and have the perfect necklace in mind for the grey stone!

softest yarn EVER

Thank you so much, AQ!!! New supplies are always so inspiring Cheesy
