|Such a fun way to re-use empty containers|
|Dyed some yarn with Kool-aid to use for a Maggie Bean doll that I need to knit.|
|Took a beaded scarf class at my new and wonderful LYS. Have fallen in love with this scarf design . Something about the heavy, shiny beads and the yarn is very soothing to me. Guess what folks are getting for Christmas? haha!|
Crocheted some dolls for charity, adapted from Mia Zamora Johnson's wonderful Magdalena pattern.
This one is named Maisy Flannigan. Her friend, Bootsie McDougal ,(pictured below), is also adapted from the same pattern.
I just LOVE red headed dolls so much!!
Bootsie is riding in a crochet tote. I made 5 of these totes in varying sizes, most of them to corral my growing yarn & project stash. This mini-version is also going to charity. The pattern for the tote is called Ombre Basket by Elizabeth Trantham and I highly recommend it for fast & easy crocheting. The tote is worked with 4 strands of worsted making for a very sturdy construction. perfect for a works-in-progress basket.
The floral embellishment is a design by a Ravelry friend entitled Tudor Rose by Becci Pamely . I just love the the way this motif is 3 dimensional.
|Cutest bunny pattern on the planet by Wendy Phillips of Dollytime on Etsy and Flutterby Patch, called Baby Bunny in a Basket Crib. THIS one is for a special birthday girl. Just need to sew up the basket crib and she's done.|
This list doesn't begin to tell the tale. This is going to take several days to complete. Oh and I have a new crochet pattern coming out very soon....

The fun continues with a trip to Fibre East in Bedford for a dip in the frog pond with a bunch of other friends. I am so jealous.

|(Sorry about the blur...dip two sections of yarn into dye, leaving other 2 sections draped over side.|
|Dye has been exhausted as evidenced by the milky white color.|
Let yarn cool until you can handle it without getting burned. Squeeze excess water out in a rolled towel.
Here you see the yarn after the first round of dye....the light green sections were given a second over-dye...
...using the grape kool-aid in the same process as outlined above.
Resulting in this....
I can't wait to make a test swtach to see how the stripes look!
Hope you all had a safe and happy 4th!
