2  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Chocolate Themed Swap - SIGNUPS CLOSED; SEND OUT August 30 on: July 23, 2005 05:40:45 AM
Autumnlayne had the idea and I offered to organize it.

Swap name: Chocolate Themed Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: carina
Sign-up date range: July 23, 2005 August 06, 2005
Date to send item by: August 30, 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? no

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Most definitely.

All ages allowed? Or 18+? sure

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:

The swap theme is chocolate, but the catch is you cannot include actual chocolate

 Like Autumnlayne sugested, you could make:
- Chocolate colored sewn/knitted items, jewelry etc., or even recon stuff made with chocolate candy wrappers
-Anything chocolate scented or flavored (non perishable)
-Favorite chocolate recipes

Here you have some links of ideas I saw in crafster:
Chocolate soap: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=29180.0
Chocolate lip gloss: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38661.0

You should make one big thing and other 2 small/medium things. But it's up to you and your partner, remember that you should send something that you'd like to receive.

If this is your first swap, remember that you must complete this one in order to join more.

If you're not sure you can do it, don't sign up. No one likes flakers
.

A Delivery Confirmation number is required when you ship within your country. If you can't get a DC#, save the receipt.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Biquini, finally finished! on: June 22, 2005 10:58:33 AM
I knitted this on a lycra an polyester yarn. It's very soft and dry quickly! I also lined it with green lycra and the sewing part is not very perfect, but what the hell, nobody will see it Wink

I made up the pattern as I went along, and the worst part of it wasn't the knitting, but the lining part and the i-cord.. geeze, so many i-cord doing was making me sick Tongue
It turned out fine, but a little small for me... If I were on Brazil I'll be fine, but I don't know if I could were it on public (maybe this summer when i go to beaches far away from here only with my bf..).

And no, I'm not knitting another one.

5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / The Nightmare Before Christmas Gallery on: June 21, 2005 04:37:09 AM
I didn't see a gallery, so I started one.
Here's what I got from worthwhilegirl:

An amazing hand painted pillow, with my favorite scene from the movie and it GLOWS IN THE DARK!!!
Some cool stitch markers (she knew I didn't have any, so she made me some, thank yooooou!)

And a Zero felted toy!!! Witha  red light that goes on when i squeeze his nose! How cool is that?

Thank you worthwhilegirl, I loved EVERYTHING! Grin
6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Fill a Coin Purse Swap (SIGN UPS CLOSED ; SEND BY 07/16) on: June 18, 2005 06:12:56 AM
Here it is girls! We'll have more than 3 weeks to craft, so make it GOOD! And have fun! If you're not sure you can manage this, DON'T SIGN UP. It's a very ugly thing to flake on someone. Gives you bad karma.
Ok, let's go!

Craftster member who is organizing this swap: carina
Sign-up date range: June 18 to June 25, 2005
Date to send item by: July 16 , 2005

Limited to a certain number of people? no, the more the merrier!

Non-U.S. participants allowed? I'm one myself Smiley

All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages, but if you're a minor, ask your parents permission.

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap: According to coccyx, "I was thinking of a coin purse swap, where the items exchanged would be a sewn/knitted/recon'd coin purse and various small items that fit inside the coin purse.  This could be jewelry, lip balm, charms, barettes, candy, or any other small trinkets you can fit inside."

So, whatever your crafty skills are, you can join in! I was thinking of pairing up people that have different skills, so a knitter could receive a sewed coin purse, etc.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:
Name of swap: Fill a Coin Purse Swap

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Fruits/vegetables patterns on: June 06, 2005 03:38:38 AM
I found this amazing pattern for a carrot:
http://feitoamao.typepad.com/montricot/2005/03/almofado_cenour.html
It's in portuguese, but I'll  try to translate if someone asks.
I also had a pattern for some cute strawberries, but now the link doesn't work Sad

But what I really wanted was a pattern for cherries Smiley Or other fruits/vegetables.
9  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Tired of my yarn swap? on: May 24, 2005 12:08:43 PM
I'm inspired by this thread:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=33384.0

I know that there are a lot of you with a huge yarn stash, and I'm one of them.. but the problem is I don't like most of mine.. My mother used to have a LYS when I was too little to knit and she gave me the leftovers.. I hate pastels colors and browns.. and guess what I got Wink
I was thinking we could.. I don't know.. swap some of that yarn we hate based on favorite colors perhaps?
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Help with knitting chart page on: May 23, 2005 09:30:19 AM
I found recently a online site where you submit your pictures and it would generate a free chart in the pdf format.. but I've seem to lost it!!!!
Can't find it anywhere.. anyone? Please?
