I've done a swap for a friend too, and know what you mean. The both of us were literally crying as she opened the box that my Craftster partner had put together for her. I thank you for sharing your story, as you and her are not alone in how you feel, and it's great to see friends supporting each other.
I'm almost done with Eiseldora's star shaped crocheted blanket. It's going a bit more slowly than most of my projects, b/c I have to count each and every one of the stitches so that a mistake doesn't happen like it did the last time! Then I just need to purchase one more item to go with it and I'll be sending out.
I've already purchased the yarn for the cowl for brandyk's sister.
I just finished the questionnaire, and I think it was the most thorough I've ever been on a questionnaire! I also added more items to each of the color listings, since I thought a variety of items to choose from would be easier for you to partner me with someone and easier for my partner to find something he/she would like to craft. Hope that was ok.
