2541  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: MYB Round 15 Gallery on: November 03, 2011 09:51:41 AM
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
2543  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Givers and needers R10 (signups till Sept 30 Givers: Oct 25, Needers: Nov 10) on: November 02, 2011 08:36:15 PM

* 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.

I would say ask your partner first, then if she doesn't want it put it in your signature looking for personal swaps. I love personal swaps! But how are people to know you're offering if you don't broadcast it? Of course, I'm the same way right. I should put some personal swap offerings in my profile as well. I have massive amounts of candle making stuff I need to rid my closet of. My sister gave it to me when she was sick and I took it thinking I would get into it... maybe some day I will but until then I could really use that space!

Ooh, Kodak makes a nice package.

Got some projects done for the ball I'm sending, so I finally opened my received package yesterday as a teaser so it would inspire me to work faster to get the costumes done. Started crocheting it out today. Lovely stuff Zombie_Queen sent me! I love watching the pattern unfold at the same time items are dropping from the ball! Hopefully I will have it all crocheted out before too long so you can all see the wonder that ZQ is!

I will tell you that one of the first things I saw in the box is akin to something I'm planning on putting in her ball! Tease!

I should stay on top of this thread. I have lots of remnants from my wheel of yarns I plied and had little bits left over. I was thinking about making a scrappy-plied yarn from it but we shall see.
