I made a thing! I had fun, and I am not too embarrassed to hang it on my front door (though the pumpkin-shaped wreath form is just a smidge too deep for between my door and screen door).

Itโ€™s still bright enough out that you canโ€™t see the little lights in it. #craftstodon? #craftodon? #autumn #DecorativeGourdSeason

The Kentucky Squares blanket is finally done, and the owners of the B&B are thrilled with it. It was such a fun project to make, and I loved working on it with my best friend. #crochet #crafts #craftstodon #YarnArt #handmade

Iโ€™m with my best friend in Kentucky and all the squares for the Kentucky Sampler Blanket finally got to meet! We framed them all in blue to get them close as possible to the same size. We start joining them this morning. Itโ€™s remarkable that two people eight hours away from each other managed to match our tension as well as we did. But then, I taught her. Iโ€™m so proud. I hope the owners of the B&B like it!

One down, four more to go on my project for Loose Ends. I am extremely pleased with how it is turning out so far. Doing my best to do it justice. #Crochet #Crafts #Craftstodon #YarnArt #CrossStitch

My #DiamondPainting update! Slowly and steadily making progress on my Mystery Dragon piece. I've not gotten much of the dragon part yet, but I'm loving the colors of the waters in the background.

Doing another version of this as a gift and working on the zipper and lining - the best therapy I can get is making stuff with my hands #crochet #wip #craftstodon #yarnstodon

Hereโ€™s the newest square for our Kentucky sampler blanket. My best friend and I are each making ten different squares and we are going to join them all together on our girlโ€™s weekend as a gift to the B&B we stay at each year. #crochet #crafts #craftstodon

A crochet granny square composed of four smaller squares. Each has white star at the center and a different background color, tan, navy, blue, and green. Itโ€™s framed in white and blue interwoven stitches.

That time I found a #TheHungerGames Mockingjay pin in my collection of old junk and rescued it with a #WoodyWoodpecker paint job.

Photo of the iconic Mockingjay pin from "The Hunger Games" (a gold bird with an arrow in its beak flying through a hoop) which has been painted to make the bird resemble Woody Woodpecker with red head, big cartoon green eye, and blue and white body.

St Brigid update #2
Washed and on the blocking mat.
It's really hard to capture the colour of the yarn, but this is pretty close.
I think that the cables are showing better definition after this wash.

I cast on the front while the weekends rolls were baking, with a nice cup of tea (of course ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง )

#KnittersOfMastodon #Knitstodon #MenWhoKnit #knitting #yarn #Yarnstodon #craft #craftstodon trying out a few new hastags...

I'm #frogging this #crochet project for a few reasons...
1. I haven't worked on it in at least 5 years.
2. I don't think I'll actually wear it once it's finished.
3. I modified the pattern, but I never wrote down HOW I changed it. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ

I'm going to unravel this and make something new.

Ok #craftstodon, I need your help. Hit me with your favorite #crochetPattern for variegated #yarn. Bonus points if it's wearable. #CrochetersOfMastodon

An unfinished crocheted shawl with two extra skeins. The yarn is a variegated worsted weight in blues, greens, and purples.
