1  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Loc'ed hair, Dreadlock Swap (Sign Ups 5/12/10-5/30/10 Mail By 6/30/10) on: May 14, 2010 04:08:46 PM
Oh, this is tempting. I've never done a swap before, but I've been wanting an excuse to practice making beads, and I'd love some new pretties for my dreads...

<3 Uncle!

You did an amazing job on your first piece. I especially like the Earth symbol.

Puts my current WIP to shame (a tea towel with a Swampbender quote: "Pants are an illusion, and so is death.")

Super cute. I really like that blue yarn in the first one. Is this your own pattern?

I got my dreads done by somebody else to get them started, and I'd highly recommend it. It's a miserable day sitting in the chair while someone yanks on your hair, but then you have nice-looking dreadlocks from the get-go. I got them done in a salon, but a patient friend will also do the trick.

Good luck with the new hair!

Awesome!

The only thing I could think to add would be a lyric or two?

Very cool!

Would you mind posting a pic of the metal one that inspired it? I have a zillion metal caps, and I'd love to try your tutorial to make a metal one.

Here I am, late to the party.

I made mine from some weird 4-ply cotton I had that is slightly thicker than embroidery floss. I used a size 1 steel hook, and it came out to about 5 inches. (The coin in the pic is a quarter for size.)



Please excuse the lack of blocking...I'm going to do them all once they're done, try to get them to match.

I don't know what the heck I'm going to do with the squares at this size, though. Scarf, maybe? Any thoughts?

On a slightly unrelated matter, how do you all get your pictures of your work to look so nice? This was the best I could manage, and it still looks kind of overexposed or something.

Good for you for finishing after such a long time! It's lovely, and I'm glad to hear that the recipient likes it - probably a lot more than if she had received it as a newborn!

Ooh, this looks like fun! I think I'll need instructions on how to join them together at the end though. I've only made a giant square blanket before... Is it hard?

I know this isn't the main point of this post, but I really liked the couched yarn technique you demonstrated also. Such a simple idea, but it never would have occurred to me!

The multiple buttons are super cute. I don't think I've ever seen a closure quite like that on a bag before.
