2581  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Rd. 7 (signups Sept. 12-Oct 1.; sendouts Dec. 1) on: October 17, 2011 09:05:35 AM
I love MadLibs!
OK, let me give it a shot:
Making a new stocking for my partner that I think she'll really dig. I'm also going to finish welding the brackets for the miniature Victorian armoire, which I love so much I'm making one for my cousin as a wedding gift as well.

Not even close?

Yay porn! Water color really sticks out to me, though it may be the way it was photographed. Quite rad.And, of course, the corespun. Need to work on that technique myself.

Ooh, I hadn't even thought to use that stuff on fries! Here I am selling it and your first dish with it is something I'd never think of. Some rep I am, eh? Those look really good! Why don't I make the cheesecake more often? Ooh, I have the pumpkin blend. Maybe for dessert tomorrow?

Has any ever told you his dimples are adorable?

And wouldn't you know it, I just thought of the perfect project for that fake fur I sent you. I've had it for 4 years doing nothing so I sent it off and now I want it back! Bah, we'll have to go for R2D2 instead of Chewy, I guess.
And I meant to send you some Easter Egg dyes for your riving but it got left out when I was rearranging the box. Sad

But other than those things, I'm glad you're happy with your box! It really wasn't all that much. I want to see that car you make him out of that jersey when it gets done, by the way.

I angelled an MYB to New Zealand one time and it cost me over $50 USD, which according to Google is about ~36Euros. That was when I decided international was not worth it!

From "Knitter's Review" I've found this quote about Soy Silk:
Quote
Soy Silk is an environmentally friendly fiber made from tofu manufacturing waste. Soy protein is liquefied and then extruded into long, continuous fibers that are then cut and processed like any other spinning fiber.
It's been around for a long time, several sources mentioned Henry Ford in a Soy Silk Suit in the '40's.
You can find tons of info on it by Googling "Soy Silk Fiber." And lots of dealers! I got mine from Zebisis Designs on etsy when I ordered my latest spindle. She tossed it in for free! I need to get working on that. *sigh* I overwork myself searching for my "spark."

You're amazing. I was only 3. I don't remember my Popple very well, but I am pretty sure I had one.

*wiggle* I can be patient for three more days.

Also, Tree, if you're still lurking this thread, I found this gorgeous soy-silk yarn that's really soft and pretty. I didn't see anything that marked it as vegan, but soy is from a plant right?

Does it contain silk, though, or are they just calling it "silk"? Silk comes from silk worms, and they die in the process, so that part wouldn't be vegan...
No, soy-silk doesn't have any silk in it. It's just what they call it. It's soy and really silky. I have some of the fiber. Pain in the a** to spin!

I made these for the Sock Monkey Swap. Usually I don't re-post what has already been posted in the swap boards, but I love these guys! I've made SMs before but I've never dressed them. For this lovely couple, I bought a 3 pack of socks and pretty much used all them. Very little scraps involved (happy!). I made them brown because redrinnie prefers natural woodsy colors. And one of the themes she wanted was Roaring '20's. It was her first swap. From the photo shoot she did with them I think she liked them. She named them Bradford and Olivia so here they are.
Bradford:

My fear of the hat was what kept them from getting out sooner. I think it came out OK. My husband think it makes him look like a hobo.
Olivia:

She looks super skinny, but that's cool because that was totally sexy back in the '20's. I know, I took a class on it.
The happy couple together:

I'm really happy with how they came out. Except the eyes. The eyes have no personality or feeling. I think if I had made the eyes better then they would really have come to life.
Thoughts? Q&C&C?
