    Did you know March is National Craft Month? Here at FiberKind.com we are having a make along - complete with random prizes. We've had some lovely donations already and I'm betting there are more to come.

    So - grab a nice beverage, prop your feet up and relax with crafts in hand. Share your projects you are working on, pull out a WIP, or learn a new craft - prizes will be based on chatter! My sincere apologies to those who posted previously, but here is everyone's chance to catch up!

    What are you working on?

    I am hoping to finish this blanket today... we’ll see if I can get that done. :-). This is for a graduation gift - because the colors sort of reflect off each other, I am calling it reflections. I also think graduation is a time for reflecting :-)

    I think that I will be trimming it in the deep teal. It is the deep color I have the most of as I bought an extra skein of it when it used to be a temperature blanket.

    Whether you call it a circle scarf, infinity scarf, cowl... a scarf by other name would be as chic.

        Really cool. I'm sure he is excited to open the mailbox. And yes explaining a leprechaun to a 4-year-old would be entertaining. LOL!!!

      Work In Progress - Scarf made with leftover worsted weight yarn - 2 partial skeins, alternating rows.

      Many ideas for using leftover sock yarn in this Discussion Thread: Groups > Knit and Crochet > Sock Lovers United > Leftovers

      Pattern:
      Using DPNs or circs, cast on 36 stitches.
      K3, (P1, K1) to last 3 stitches, P3.
      Repeat this row to length desired.
      Cast off.

      For circle scarf, infinity scarf, cowl:
      Cast on using Judy's Magic Cast On.
      Cast off: three-needle bind off in pattern.

      Judy's Magic Cast On (JMCO) is shown in this YouTube video by Judy Becker, posted September 12, 2011. The video is just 12:31 long, and gives great explanations along with the demonstration. Judy Becker invented the technique, which was first published in Knitty, Spring 2006

        lovestostitch Char - Thank you!

        LOL, I was tidying up, and in tossing several skeins into a bin of blues, these landed near each other, and it clicked!

        LOL, I am so far behind on a number of things, and will probably pay for this diversion later this month with an all-nighter or two!

        Thank you TexasPurl - I believe these partial skeins of worsted weight yarn are both by Red Heart, the lighter yarn being Super Saver "wildflowers" and the darker yarn being With Love "cerulean."

      I am also working on a C2C blanket from Hobbii - this is a very addicting and fun “TV” knit blanket.

      I'm also working on the Hobbii C2C blanket along with the Spice Market CAL. I get one round done on the Spice Market then move on to a couple squares on the Hobbii. With any luck, I'll have them finished by the end of the month.

        So, I’m new to this concept, but very interested - do they use this to cover the IV after it’s inserted? I wonder if I could use one like this when I have my outpatient surgery next week! Hhhmmm, then I could keep knitting 😀😀

        knitter131 My understanding is that these sleeves will cover the IVs. A request was sent from our hospital auxiliary to us handcrafters to make these; a new request from them. The idea is to keep their elderly patients from fiddling with their IVs.

        TexasPurl I love charity crafting! It just feeds my soul and makes my heart sing!

      I just completed this shawl, a test crochet for our very own, ShawlsandDolls . A beautiful pattern using Lion Brand Mandala. Thanks for permission for me to share it here.

        I'm getting confused. I know I posted a compliment about this beautiful shawl but I don't know if it got lost in the thread delete or if it was in a different thread. Because it's so beautiful, I'm posting again!

        lovestostitch I think it was lost. :-( I was deleting a post that seemed to be spam, and the option that said “delete post” didn’t delete the one post, it deleted the whole thing. Lesson learned!

      I'm working on one more pair of socks, the are Ice Yarn Design Sock yarn. Just a plain 2x2 rib for a gift I need this month. A progress photo. Toe up, they are ready to begin the heels.

      I've been playing around with some perle cotton. I want to update my spring wreath. I thought I'd try some butterflies.

      VERY colorful butterflies!

      I've been procrastinating on starting the light weight robe I said I wanted to finish this month. I dug it out. I already cut it out! That's the worst part and I forgot that I had done it. This is the pattern and the fabric.

        I look forward to seeing your finished robe. It's really nice to see others who sew too. I used to make all my clothes until I discovered weaving, now there just isn't enough hours or energy in the day. Good luck with the sewing!

      I'm working on the Battenberg Blanket by Sandra Paul. This has been an on going project for over a year now and I can finally share more than a pile of tiny granny squares! Here's a quarter of the blanket joined together.
