Details of swap: (copied from H&H round 1)

This is the Handspun & Handcrafts Swap!! This swap will pair up spinners and non-spinners (hereafter referred to as crafters, not because spinners are not crafters, but to keep things simple), to swap handspun and other crafts with each other.  Spinners will make beautiful yarn for their partners and Crafters will make beautiful crafts for their partners.    Please discuss with your partner to determine level of effort: as a general guideline, spinners will make a skein of yarn for their partner, and crafters will make one large and 2 small items for their partner (of course, both a "skein" and a "large/small item" are really relative terms, which is why you need to communicate with your partner). You can do more than this of course if you both agree to do so.

You will sign up either as a Spinner OR a Crafter, please use the appropriate questionnaire below.

If more crafters than spinners sign up, the swap will be limited to the number of spinners (and vice-versa). Participants will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis (sign up early!).

I am anticipating that there will be more crafters sign up than spinners. Therefore, spinners who have successfully completed at least one swap may choose to take two partners if desired, and crafters will be limited to one partner, to ensure that more people get a chance to participate.

I love small projects using bulky yarn. Instant gratification!! the first two hats are knit using the "Urchin" pattern by Isolda Teague and Malabrigo Rasta Yarn. The third hat is the "Gnomey Hat" pattern by Mimi Hill.

Meet Ollie! I knit this for a fellow Crafster. She loved it! It was my first time knitting a toy. It was a simple and relatively quick knit.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Little toosties need love, too! on: February 25, 2011 09:11:21 AM
These socks were an incredibly fast knit and perfect for keep little feetsies warm against the winter chill. The girls loved wearing hand knit socks. Normally, I don't knit many socks for my kiddos because their feet grow so fast, it seems almost wasteful to spend the time and money even doing it. For these socks I used some Caron Simply soft.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sexy socks of Doom!! MUAHAHAHAHHA! on: February 25, 2011 09:07:56 AM
I am soooo happy with how these socks came out. I really think the yarn I used compliments the pattern perfectly. I used hand dyed sock yarn from Out of Steps Dyeworks in the Vampire Girl colorway to knit up these Rivulets socks.
