I got various stuffs done, which makes me feel accomplished! I finished up 3 crochet projects.
This is made from leftover yarn from my boyfriend's mother. She makes felted slippers and mittens with this stuff. I used 5 colours and have teeny balls leftover of 3 colours, which I want to make crocheted flowers out of. Started in late May, finished last night, or the night before, I can't remember.
This scarflette was started in March and finished in May. It just needed buttons, which it got last night (or the night before :P my days kinda blur into eachother). It's made from black acrylic that I've had for at least 6 years, carrying black and hot pink eyelash yarn.
This scarf is for my mother. I've worked on it off-and-on for THREE YEARS. Ya. I suck. I kept tossing it back in the bin because the tension has to be PERFECTLY maintained so that the nubbly parts stay evenly spaced. Now that I'm a little more experienced, I finished the last two feet of this EIGHT FOOT MONSTROSITY in only two days. The yarn is actually a really soft and delicious wool/mohair blend. I'd originally bought two balls, and had to go back for two more from a different lot, which is why each half of the scarf is kinda different.
I also did a REAL refashion, kinda... Maybe... My boyfriend's family's dog, Jinx is 13 or 14 and is slowing down. He likes camping with us, but last year he had a miserable time on one trip. It was three days of cold and wet, and he ended up wearing one of my shirts (and trying to climb in my sleeping bag, even though he had his own :P). So I decided enough is enough, the poor old man needs his own camping sweater. Using THIS tutorial, I made him a fabulous sweater out of a dollar store fleece blankie:
The blankie was 2 bucks. The grey is double-knit I got ages ago at Walmart out of the ends bin. It wasn't originally supposed to have sleeves, but I cut the armhole too large out of the top piece. He didn't seem impressed, but I'm sure when he starts shivering in the cold and I shove this on him, he'll be like "Heeeeeey, I'm warm!" :P
