This may be a day late and a penny short... but I've used socks as stuffing for projects before. I have a draft dodger that I designed that must have used up at least a grocery bag full of stray socks. Environmentally friendly and very washable!

April KAL - Wash Cloths
ETA: Nancy's blog link
Here are my FO's for this KAL - I'm so tickled I actually have something to participate here. I made 2 seed stitch wash cloths, one for each of my friend's little boys. She's an awesome seamstress, and so we commission each other for gifts. These were an easy one evening project that will be on their guest bed as a surprise when they come over tonight.

I could get used to this "mini" project mode...


Stats:
Peaches & Cream 100 % Cotton Yarn
Needles: Size 10 1/2
No guage or specific dimensions - I CO 19 sts and kept knitting until it looked like a good size

I finished the mini-purse the other day. I still have to add the draw string and I am debating on adding tassles. Hopefully I'll get the chance to take a picture of it tomorrow.

Yay! I'm glad everyone is into the minis :-)

May will be something small, too. I was thinking "may flowers"?

My project is done, a little felted kuryeon purse. I'm hoping to get my film developed and post a picture here. I like this thread! It's fun to think up small projects that can squeeze in among my many other ones. And it's fun to see what others are doing. samm

Here's my "little" projects for this month's KAL. I made five of these little easter bunnies with different leftover yarn I had. Made them for my DDs and my three nephews. Also had some cotton yarn from a purchase I made on EBAY with some other yarn. Had no idea what I would do with it at the time, but they made really nice dishclothes. I made one for myself and two each for my mom and sister that I gave them as easter presents. I tied them up pretty with some ribbon and they made really nice gifts. I hesitated at first whether to make dishcloths, but they are great, I can't wait to make some more up for myself!

Awwwwwwww ... I *love* the Eggs!!! I have to make some of these for next year. Beautiful!

The bunnies are so adorable, too, and everyone else's little projects. I didn't get to participate in this one. Too many other BIG things to work on!!

Off to look for May's KAL?

I'll post a picture later, but I managed to make it in for the month of April. I had a ball of Patons Classic Merino hanging around, and I turned part of it into a felted coaster for my DHs desk. I'm going to use the rest of the ball to make him a felted pen cup that someone posted here.
