The blue scarf is made of Bernat Mosaic which is 100% acrylic.  I have no idea why I'm allergic to it, but it is so unfair. Tongue

I made a tree skirt for my little pink Christmas tree. The background green got a little washed out, it's a bit darker in person. Their are four triangles all together, 2 of each color.

A little late for this year, but it's done for next year at least!  Smiley

I think it is not as soft as you would think and some people are allergic to the dyes...most wool allergies are to the lanolin and not the wool itself...you are lucky that you have yarns you can work with...

The blue scarf is so lovely!  I also like the warm comfy feel of your tweedy one!

oh--what a cute display!  ha ha you are ahead for holidays 2012!

I am vowing to finish the overdo swap project in the next hour, I'll be back later to report.

Looking for the free row by row patterns.  If you are able to get me one from your town I will paypal you $2 for postage.

Love the blue scarf! It's too bad you're allergic to the yarn.  Undecided

Last night I made 2 sheets of scrapbook paper's worth of origami stars. In the Random Swap back in the fall, someone sent a garland made of them, which inspired me. I'm thinking about using the ones I made out of the tye-dye print paper to make a necklace for a friend who has a birthday next weekend, but I'm not sure. I'm going to consider the stars an "ongoing" project, since I have no idea yet how many I want to make.

I finished a slouchy hat for ME this afternoon! I need to get new batteries for my camera, so pics will come later. I also started knitting my first hat. I'm taking a hat class at my LYS soon, but I figured I'd try out the pattern early.  Smiley I'm using a size 8 circular instead of 7 (what the pattern wants), mostly so that I know I won't have anything on the needles when the class starts (on Tues). I'll let you know how it turns out!

It's Bernat Mosaic, to which I'm allergic, but I love it so much it was totally worth the itchy hands and buzzy tongue. Tongue

 Shocked I can think of nothing worse than to be allergic to such a fabulous yarn. That's a real horror story for me - we all know how much I love that yarn!

But the scarves are lovely. And the tree skirt is cute.

And I started making TM pillows, which I can't share because they are for a swap (I still think organising a swap should count as a project, especially my first one lol) but they are so quick and fun to do I'm sure there will be more soon.

I have a rainbow ninja, and a painted wedding rock planned for this weekend, so hopefully I'll finally be able to post pictures in here!

LOVE that blue scarf it is sooooo pretty and in my favorite colors!

Silvermoon, I hear you on the organizing a swap. I took over the reins for the Ongoing Pinterest Swap and while I'm having fun it is a lot more work than I imagined.  Of course, perhaps choosing a swap that is ongoing has something to do with that.  Hah!

Items have been received so I can share.

Project bag: this fabric was incredibly fiddly and slippery.

kitty catnip toy

mouse cuddle bag; fleece and flannel

Monster pouch for swap...

Aria loved my first so much she requested one for herself and I just made two at the same time...it went quickly this time since I knew what I was doing on my 2nd and 3rd time around.

2 lined zipper bags!  

fabric cuff

fabric cuff with snaps; its reversible.

tiny mouse in a tin.  I got the idea from this pin but I made the mouse my own rather than copy her style. http://mmmcrafts.blogspot.com/2011/12/handmade-gifts-2011-mouse-house-for.html

Next up in the crafty que is a tshirt to tunic recon for Aria.  I found a great willie nelson tee with "born for trouble" silkscreened on it.  Its in the works...

A little late for this year, but it's done for next year at least!

What a cute skirt.  I'm the same way - getting ready for the end of this year.  I finally got my holiday decorations from my parents' house and now that the holidays are over, I'm getting the urge to craft and decorate for them.
