Crafting is a state of mind.

I finished my Knifty Knitter blanket!  The bf actually learned how to work the loom and did most of the third panel for me, then I stitched it all together while watching TV last night!

Here it is, as modeled by the back of our recliner..

Which puts me at...2!  2 projects, ah ha ha...

I was actually surprised at how quickly this came together, it seemed so daunting at first...now hopefully on to a few smaller projects before I tackle another big one!  Loving all the stuff on this thread!

FINALLY a second thing DONE... In the simple, silly but satisfying caragory:

Worn out flannel sheet converted to rags (edges bound) and put into a holder/dispenser for easy storage.

I finally have some projects to post!  I didn't do very well on my January list, so there will be carry-over to Feb.  But I did a few projects not on the list.

1. PinkLeo's Luna Lovegood scarf: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=238536.0

2. Embroidery hoopla hoop for me (plus the OTT embroidery hoopla swap hoop due Jan 10)

3. Weekender bag - late christmas present - still late
4. Skirt for me - bought fabric, but not started
5. Batch of crocheted dishwashing scrubbies nope
6. Gleek shirt for dd started, but not completed
7. wand from Instructables tutorial sigh, not yet

unplanned and completed:
8. Oma slippers for dd:

9. caliometry for dd:

So, I guess that puts me at 4/50 for January.  Hopefully I'll be more productive in February!

50 in 2012 (24/50)
Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.

wow - looking good, everyone!

I so agree with the catch up with Always comment (soz - ca't remember who it was - but ya talk a lot of sense!), at least we know we're onto a winner, lol!!

luckdragon - that Alice hoop is gorgeous, another one added to the list me thinks :/

keep on crafting guys - you guilt me into moving faster! I'm on with my first ever poppet, and I think I've redefined anally retentive - it is taking FOR-FRICKIN-EVER!

Crochet Motifs Crochet-along-still 4 to do...ok, I procrastinate!
Knit Sampler Squares (Guild Knit-along)-one of two done, ran out of yarn for second one

That poppet is AWESOME!  Great work!  I need to figure out how to make some new clothes for mine.

Great projects posted these last few days Smiley  Not much productivity on my end these last couple weeks...and....WE LEAVE ON VACATION IN 3 DAYS!!!  I'm SOOOO excited!!!  I checked the TSA website and I'm allowed to bring a small (4" or less) pair of scissors, so that means I can work on some embroidery, and I'm allowed to bring small (7" or less) tools so I can have my pliers n stuff for jewelry things too.  Soooo....I may come back from vaca with a few more completed items Wink  I think I may take some goodies to do and actual listed item or 2 off my list...there's a couple portable projects on there!

Wow I love that Luna lovegood scarf and those slippers!
Great projects guys! I think this thread is uninspiring me to work on my list. Too many awesome projects I couldn't dream of doing!

I did finish two projects this weekend, for the boy. I need to find a camera and take pictures!

pimpernelsmith, the oatmeal container is a brilliant idea.

luckdragon, I love the Wild Thing hoopla.
