2531  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Rd. 7 (signups Sept. 12-Oct 1.; sendouts Dec. 1) on: November 06, 2011 06:16:07 PM
MadHatteh, I went in for surgery on my eyebrow in high school and the stupid wench couldn't get my vein, either. I ended up with a huge bruise on the inside of my elbow, another on the back of my hand where someone else had to finally take it from her and stick me, and a black eye with stitches. I used it against people when they were mean to me in the drive through at Taco Bell, making up stories about being a drug addict with an abusive boyfriend and making them feel like assholes when they got to the window. My boss didn't that, but it was really funny seeing their faces!

I finally made my first project for this swap today! It was the same thing as the second to last thing for my MYB so I set them up and did them assembly line style. Now I get to finish the last thing for that, wrap it up, and I'm all about the stocking! Heck yeah! I found like 2 yards of purple tulle the other day and not only was I thinking "Why in the hell do I have this?" but "What the hell am I going to do with it?!" DING! My partner is PurplePaisley. You think there might be some tulle involved in her stocking and/or several stuffers? I think so! Now to finish with these French knots...

ETA: I have a question for you guys! What's the word on wrapping stuffers? I always thought the purpose of having things in a stocking was to get a bunch of little stuff that doesn't require wrapping, but in the last Stocking swap I was in everyone was wrapping everything. What does everyone this round think about that? Curious I am!

After I finish this last item I get to wrap! I am so happy! I am so excited! Wrapping them is almost as fun as unwrapping them!

I remember when you posted your son's first spin, from pencil roving. I am loving the red and orange, though I don't think I would like them as much plied together.

Here's my offering, meant to post it a week or 2 ago. Oops! Some of that stuff I was given (that I still don't know what to do with the rest of it) there was some roving that I carded and spun worsted and I think I made it 2 ply with itself but I can't think with these buttheads talking nerdy behind me. They would be mad if I just told them to shove it. BAH!

Today I got to do a lot of stalking on my partner and wow! I think I like her. I got to know her pretty well so when we went out tonight I saw tons of stuff for her ball and spent more money than I probably should have. Problem: I don't think it will all fit in the ball! Or even around it in a box! Oh noes! Maybe I'll have to save it for my kids OR just wait and see if I get ZQ as a partner again somewhere in the future.

Yes, the multicolored text is great! I also love how some of the detailed fade out so that some of the stitches are barely visible because they are so light! You did a great job. Where did you get the patterns?

OK I finished crocheting out my MYB! I say, there was more yarn left over than I thought there would be. Turns out the stuff in the middle was more wound than the stuff on the outside. No wonder she couldn't fit more in there!

I opened it Monday to this:

Then I worked my ass off all day and didn't get to do anything. So Tuesday, after I finally finished Han Solos costume (it was good enough for ToTing but not for my OCD mind) I started working on crocheting it out. I love that! It's funny when you're sitting there in the groove of crocheting away and suddenly you look down and Oh! What is this that fell off the ball?! Nice! Anyway, here's the look. Like I said, not all of it was in the ball but all of it is in the pictures, lots of pictures! I hate it when people just take group shots of everything and you have to sit and stare at it for 10 minutes to be able to pick out what was actually in there. It all looks like a tangled mess that way!


Extra yarns! All handspun? I love the red with the beads in it. Ooh, it's nice. I remember when she posted this on FF a few weeks ago, I think. Love it!

Handmade things! 3 KNIT toys, a handspun-wrapped bangle, and KNIT wrist warmers. I love knit things!

Fabrics, zipper, bias tape, embroidery thread, Sublime pattern, pattern transfer pens, beaded string, and some hand-dyed silk hankies. Ooh, those silk hankies intimidate me.

Buttons buttons buttons! Stitch markers, roses (art yarn add ins?) and some little rubber circles. I wonder what those are for. More art yarn add ins?  I love the buttons! The leaf one is my favorite. I have a jar of buttons me and the kids like to play with and I think the leaf one will be a big hit the next time I make play dough.

Last but certainly not least (maybe most?!) The scarf I crocheted while dropping all these goodies. Not blocked because I don't really know how to do that and I don't think it would matter too much in my house anyway, but you can still the pattern, right? And to think, the whole time I was making it I kept thinking there wouldn't be enough yarn in the ball to finish it. I was so wrong. Look at the big ball of what was left over! I could have done another 4-row repeat on each side! Funny: our resident Queen of the Undead uses the same yarn/fiber supplier I have been for the past couple years. The name of this color way was "peacock" which I also happen to have bought in a different yarn from her and made some Mary Jane Slippers. So now I have a scarf to match my slippers! Isn't that totally sweet?! I love it. It has always been one of my favorite colorways from Kate McMullin.

Wow. It needs to be March already so I can quit being so wordy. Sorry you guys!

still haven't started yet. Did pick up a couple items at HL yesterday but all crafting is on hold until i finish crocheting out this MYB, then I need to get that package wrapped up and then literally wrapped up and out, since the SO is over 2 weeks before this one, and then FULL attention here. Mostly. I think

* I know, where You live!*

Oh noes!

Just mailed out a box stuffed full of fabric to my second needer!  Sorry I was late, but better late than never, right?  PM sent to Tiffi_333 with the DC number.  Now, as a first time swapper and a giver only - what else is there that I need to do?
Did you also send the DC# to who you sent to? Now you just sit back and wait for your package to be delivered. And wait for your return package. That's the hard part. Also hard: waiting for feedback, though if everyone you sent to receives and you want feedback to move on to your next swap, you can usually PM the organizer and they can give it to you sooner rather than later usually. So that's all you have left: waiting! How'd you enjoy your first swap?

I agree with jexxi Smiley

I`ve only done one swap tho (personal) and my partner went missing (whaa-whaa-whaa) , so i`d be careful too and look at the swap history on these people Wink

I've only had great experiences with personal swaps. I think one or more of them may have not even had swap history! They always sent me more than I thought I deserved, too. I just did a swap for my extra hand cards and I got this GIANT box of finer and yarn in return. Some of the yearn still had tags on it and while she did say she got it in a swap, it was still really nice. Really, really nice!Stinky, but nice! Corespun viscose! And TONNES of fiber! Man. I should go make stuff.
