racehorse87 said she received her shawl from me today, so here it is:





it was kind of psycho to get it done as fast as I did as it was only my 4th real crochet project, but Beth was really good about bearing with me.  Also, it greatly increased my crochet speed!

12  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Unconditional Swap May on: May 10, 2006 11:29:50 AM
Hey!  I'm in Florida! Here are my wishes:

1. decorated or stenciled t-shirts or tank tops or casual shirts.  I want something kinda nice, that I won't feel like a slob wearing.  I'm a women's large medium, so if they are cut small I'll need a large.  Or you can PM for measurements.

2. something felted.  Either needle or wet felt.  Anything creative.  I love the elephant here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=89145.from0#new
And I love all this felted stuff: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=15115

3. Bandannas -- I'm going to South America soon to follow monkeys around in the forest, and I need bandannas to put my hair back.  anything decorated or sewn from scrap cloth or anything I can use in a do-rag manner would be great.  Just don't send anything you'll be too sad about it getting really really dirty.  thanks, Drea4545!!!!

About me: I'm 29, I'm an anthropology grad student who studies monkeys.  I love sparkly and shiny things, bright colors, animals, and retro-kitschy things from when I was a child (Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony).  I am a vegetarian and do not wear leather, also my ears are not pierced, so no earrings! I'm pretty easy to please -- anything unique or fun is good by me.

I am working with some Lion brand microspun right now, and the first skein was full of tangles!  I spent forever trying to untangle it, but then just moved to another skein.  I should contact the company about it, it was really terrible.

Awesome.  I'll probably leave them slidey though, I like it.

Just a question, were the beads still glued in place when they got to you? From the picture, it looks as if they may have slid around a bit...

Most were, but like one had slid.  After two wearings more are sliding, but I just push them back into place and they seem to stay there pretty well. 

I wondered how they were attached to the wire.

Here are some pictures of the awesome felted bead necklace Amerigirl05 made for me!  She also sent some great earrings and a bookmark from Mexico, and as a bonus it all arrived on my birthday!
