1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Another sock swap? on: July 30, 2008 09:36:02 AM
Hey, sock knitters...where are you??  Huh

I would be super interested in this idea but am, unfortunately, off the swaps indefinitely. Too many family obligations and not enough spare time. Sad

If you think about it though, sock swaps should be the perfect thing for knitters as socks are relatively cheap to make (and to ship) and they can be worked up fairly quickly (depending on your pattern, of course)! I'm surprised that there hasn't been more interest...

Here are action shots (finally!!) of some the crafty goodies that patty_o_furniture sent to us (you can see photos of the complete package in her post here)

Fishing game:



I Spy bag (here, my aunt is having just as much fun finding the little treasures as my daughter!):



And finally...the twirly skirt:





Thanks again!!

Thanks, patty_o_furniture, for posting pics of the great package you sent us!! Elora loves her twirly skirt and the fishing game...and the I-Spy bag has been a great distraction at the many dr appointments we've had to go to recently!

The taggy blankets are super soft and so cute and the burp cloths are nice and thick...will be great for the double-duty spit up we're going to have.

I've been kind of a crappy communicator this round (twins pregnancy is kicking my butt big time), but I finally managed to get the package for my partner, patty_o_furniture, sent out.

Here is a teaser:



Also, we recieved her wonderful package last week. I'll try to get some photos of the stuff she sent us posted tomorrow.

Sorry, patty_o for the delay!

I LOVE the indoor hopscotch game! What a great idea!!

Also...that pirate map quilt?? Just...wow!

And...actually...everything in this gallery is pretty darn awesome! The bar is set pretty high!! I'm just finishing up a couple of things for my partner, patty_o_furniture, and should be sending out in the next day or so. I hope her package lives up to the stuff that other people have sent!!  Smiley

I'm still here...hanging on by a thread!! I'm still in the "idea gathering" stage, but that will change next week, once my semester (and my degree!!!) is finished. After that, I'll have a lot more free time to get into the craft room (which I honestly haven't set foot in since the February mid-semester break) and burn through what I hope will be some great projects for my partner's girls!

Am I going to get in trouble for these images?  Well, I did them in a proto-feminist, comparing sexisms/women's roles kind of vein, so if you're offended, you don't get it.
And, you're easily offended, so take some B50 complex and try to be happier  Wink

The images didn't offend me, but your comment about "if you're offended, you don't get it" comment certainly put me off.

Instead of being sort of snappy/on the offensive right off the bat, why not post more of an explanation about why you chose the medium that you did or a bit about the technical details of about how you came up with the pattern or, best of all, what prompted you to create these pieces in the first place? Are they for an art project or show? Or for a more personal reason?

Please don't think I'm slamming your craft...I think what you've done is really interesting. But maybe those people who ARE "easily offended" would be more accepting if you could explain what it is that you feel they "don't get" instead of just flaming everybody before they've even expressed an opinion.

keeperrox: I ordered the fabric from equilter.com. They have a huge selection of practically any print or theme you could ever want. Both wonderful and dangerous! Wink

Thanks, everyone, for your positive comments!

Alright...I can't stay away from swapping any longer! I saw Zelda's message about this swap in another thread...crafting time is long enough...count me in! Smiley

Thanks for organizing this, Superhooker!
