    Here is my first finished object of March. Also slippers, if you can believe it!!

    I used a hand-dyed fuzzy wool I got on sale at a LYS last year. I needed to do a small project to keep myself interested as I am trying to de-stash all of my yarn and am working on a big, repetitive blanket with lots of ends to weave in. I used the Bulky Winter Socks crochet pattern. The purple is much darker in real life than it is in these pictures.

    The only problem is I still have some purple wool left! Now I've got to use that up!

      Does one square count as a completed object? I guess I can call it a non-absorbent washcloth. One Tunisian Simple Stitch square completed.

      My project for today - modifying a dog harness to be a no-pull harness. We purchased a no-pull harness and it chafed Carly's front legpits (like armpits, but on a dog!). Then we bought her a regular harness that fits nicely but she pulls. The difference is a ring for the leash on the front of their chest (under their chin), not up on their back. The answer to the problem - I sewed a D ring onto her regular harness!

      Ingenuity - 10 miles, time spent sewing - .005 miles!

      How in the world do we figure out points for little crafty jobs?

        The yarn is so nice. It is Plymouth Select Worsted Merino Superwash. I won this yarn when we did those charity hats. Thanks MrsDanielleWilson for such a nice prize.

      Sewing, skip stitching, and crocheting = 657 yards. I used almost a whole cone of Sugar 'n Cream. My only disappointment with this project is that the fleece is much thinner than I expected. Ordering it online was the only way to get enough of the same dye lot but the downside is I didn't get to feel it. It shows wrinkles from the bedding underneath and the seams wrinkle more than the one I made with a thicker fleece. Oh well, it looks tidy and hopefully some colorful pillows will take your eyes away from any wrinkles.

        I think a nice colorful bed scarf for the foot of the bed would be a marvelous idea ! I also think you did a good job!

        From a color perspective, I think a bed scarf would be nice too but then there is reality. Hubby goes to bed first and he will not want to deal with a bed scarf - at least not neatly! I don't want to be the maid to do a turn down service so I think the bedscarf idea won't fly. What is not in that picture is that there is a black cedar chest that goes at the end of the bed. That might help a little. I do plan on colorful pillows.

        This looks great, I hope you share another picture with the chest and pillows.

      I actually finished something! A pair of socks. I used 324 yards of the green Tehete. The white was from a leftover ball out of my jar and I don't even know what brand so I couldn't count it accurately. Probably only a few yards anyway. The celtic knot chart was from the knitting fool website. They have several Celtic knot patterns.
