11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / matchbook swap on: June 10, 2005 02:07:33 PM
I collect matchbooks, and I was thinking we could do a matchbook swap for everyone out there who does too...there tons of resturants, stores, museums, hotels, ect in Albuquerque that give free matches for the asking, and I'm sure that  other areas of the country/world do too.  So you could just go around to these places and grab some free matches to send to your partner to beef up thier collection, and then you'd have some cool ones from a different place to add to yours.  What do you think?  We could make it like 10 book minimum?  Maybe we could decorate our own blank one to send too?
12  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Some of my finished projects(pic heavy) on: May 12, 2005 04:10:33 PM
These are some of my finished projects...hope you like (forgive pic quality, my digi is really crappy)


This is both my first completed project and (obviously) my first sweater.  The upper chest, sleeve cuffs, and bottom are done in garter stitch and the rest is stockingette.


This is a close up of the upper chest area


This is a plain ol' garter stitch scarf that I made for my boyfriend out of homespun


This is a blanket I made for the birth of my son.  It was made in strips, then sewn together.  Then I picked up stitches around the outside for the border

This hat I made, first project in the round

So what do ya think?

Here's a little hat I just finished for my friend who's having a baby.  I should have made it bigger but I got impatient  and quit before it was long enough.  Oh well, I guess its only infant size.



Here's my 3 month son modeling it for everyone


I just got home from visiting my family in Austin.  While I was there, my mom told me to raid her yarn stash and take whatever I wanted.  I found this:

Its this beautiful Kid Mohair/Wool/Silk/Acrylic blend.  Main color dark green but one of the ply threads is a rainbow that keeps fading into the next color.  I loved it so much I could not wait to knit something with it, so I choose to do the airy scarf from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts.







Here are some 1 hour baby booties that I finished today.  They're for my friends who are expecting a daughter in October.  I knit them with some Icelandic wool that I found in my mom's yarn stash
