I don’t feel like crafting right now. But I did make these in the morning for some kiddos who keep losing my hackysacks. (Okay, it’s not just kiddos losing them. A certain person and I may have lost one while trying to hit one another… Maybe, maybe not. Haha.)
I tripled up some fingering yarn to make these. Nice way to use up scraps… If I had known I only had enough to make about half, then I would have made the original spiral hackysack, but I got half-way before realizing I wouldn’t have enough.
I made 12 owls total, but one was given away last week because she was leaving early. Oh well.
I went to work early to get the kiddos to hold my owls so I could take pictures. They didn’t quite turn out the way I envisioned, but you get the idea.
The last picture was their suggestion. They wanted to form a heart with the owls, so that’s what happened.
They loved it. I mean… LOVED it. They wanted to play with them right away, take a nap with them. Their teacher said no, they could only play with them when they got home. Hah. At least they will be well-loved.
I will probably make more with my scraps. They’re fun, and don’t require too much sewing! Hurray!
Pattern: Baby Owl Ornaments (Rav link)
I’ve been crocheting! I tried to knit and it seems I have lost my knitting mojo for the moment. Crocheting all the way!!!
I worked like crazy on these motifs over the weekend. I want to get back to them, but I have something I want to finish first, so taking a break.
Rarity from My Little Pony. I’m testing the pattern and it’s been… interesting. She is a great designer, with a strong background in shaping crochet, so her pieces are awesome and well thought-out. Unfortunately, I have a big, fat BUT as well. C’est la vie.
This is a splurge for me.
30 skeins of Palette! (There’s 2 more in the center bag.)
I’ve already started using the WOTA. One skein down!
I can’t wait for these balls of yarn to become something beautiful.

I’ve been crocheting lately.
Almost done with these two. I’m going to make 10 more for my kids’ graduation gift.
I just got some yarn and I started on a test project. One part down, many to go.
I’m so close to finishing… Perhaps today will be the day!
The goal is to finish the left sock by Saturday. I started on Sunday.
I think I’m doing pretty well on that schedule, don’t you?
