Unless you count bunny parts (tails and ears), I really don't have any WIPs this week. I took a few days off to write because my fingers and wrists were hurting from crocheting and because I simply felt like writing for a few days. There will be WIPs next week hopefully. Lord knows, I still have a ton of partial skeins to use up on pretty projects.

This will hopefully be my final week of crocheting small projects from partial skeins for a while. I have made a lot of new items, but I still have a few more skeins to work with. I will be spending a lot of my time in the kitchen this week restocking my freezer with baked-up goodness, so I am only going to plan some quick crochets for larger sets. I've been thinking for a while now about making up a set of buy -n- sell fruits and vegetables for every toddler/child's first market stand, and although I had made up a few patterns on my own, I had a few vegetables that were fast becoming the bane of my crochet existence (darn you, corn on the cob, darn you!). So I went digging for patterns. Finally found a set at Drops Designs: http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/us/pattern.php?id=5835&lang=us
I will be making some of those pieces this week when my oven and I give out.

This is actually a two week sprawl of finished projects. I managed to almost half my scrap basket (not including all the off white yarn that I took out that is to be used for bunny bodies). I'm going to weave in all the ends in a little while, after I get Sam's stuff set out for work.
It's mostly headbands and drink cozies, but there are two cowls in the mix, an adult scarf, a toddler scarf, two keychains, a set of rainbow ponytail holders, and some flowers.

Because I have been working on small projects, I do not have much for my WIPs photo this week. I only have one project that's a WIP, and that's a headband that I can sit down and have finished in about another 15 minutes of solid stitching on it.

I didn't get my blog posts listed yesterday due to the fact that digging out and preparing my herb bed took a lot longer than I had anticipated. I will save all the finished items for next week's What I Made post, and I'll post my Herb bed pictures for my next garden post. But anywho, on the the plans for the week.
Another week of me cleaning out my yarn stash. Still using up some of my partial skeins because, I'll be honest..., I have a lot of them. I have several small projects that I want to get done this week. I plan to complete at least two items of each of the following projects.
Project 1: Granny Stripe Headband
Project 2: Boho Head Scarf
Project 3: Crochet Snood
Project 4: Princess Tiara
Project 5: Snuggle Bunnies

This week's line-up is still mostly crochet, if not all crochet. Due to a few yarn donations, my acquired collection has outgrown it's boundaries (it doesn't fit in the armoire anymore). A lot of it is just odds and ends though. Not really enough for a hat, but a decent amount to do something with. This is going to be headband and childrens' hats week, I think. I have pulled several patterns from Ravelry.com, and I'm hoping to make at least 5 unique patterns before Saturday.
Project 1: Easiest Headwrap Ever
Project 2: Frayed Knot's 15 Minute Coffee Sleeve
Project 3: The Genius Headband (no, I didn't name it)
Project 4: Shell Stitch Beanie (this is my fall-back hat for when I have more than 10 yards of yarn, but less than 40 yards)
Project 5: Little Flowers
We will also be planting the majority of our garden this week, so I may not get a lot of crochet work done, but I'll post what I complete.
