1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Re: Fiber Friday 06/14/2013 on: June 13, 2013 10:22:11 PM
So, I haven't been on craftster in a few years, but I felt like I really should share this. I finally spun up some rolags I received in my first ever craftster swap from nicolassa. I remember when I got them I thought they were too pretty to spin, so they've been sitting in a box for the past 5 years! I believe it's merino, bamboo, silk noil, and angelina, 190 yards.





I also spun this one this week. Not from the swap, but gifted to me a long time ago. It's 80% angora/ 20% merino, 180 yards.

Package 2 from FinRaziel

I received a great package from FinRaziel last week. We have both had busy summers and had to send late (I am actually still working on my package 2 which I hope to have out soon! eek!) but I love her package and it totally made my day.


First we have my cat May modeling an adorable felted purse. I've just learned to felt, so I'm really impressed. Also, the little flowers are so cute! I love little purses and this will be very useful for me. Smiley


Next we have 5 things to add to my stash...and clearly this is way more than 5 things. There are 6 skeins of Knit Picks Shine Sport, 3 skeins of 100% cashmere(!) yarn, and a skein of a silk/cotton blend. All good yarns for summer knitting! Also, I swear that I did not put my cat in these pictures. As soon as I took my camera out, she would walk into the shot and I couldn't really make her leave.  Roll Eyes

It was a lovely, well thought out package, thank you so much!

I just wanted to check in and say that I'm slowly working on package 2. I've been a little busy with summer school, and had a minor setback with one of the supplies I needed, but I'm still on track. Smiley

Wow, so many people made origami stars! I'm surprised! I was actually gonna make some for this swap too, but couldn't find a good jar for them.

Package One!

I received my package from FinRaziel on Saturday! I feel like we have a lot in common, and it was fun getting to know more about her. Here's what I got!


Here is a picture of everything neatly wrapped and numbered.


Something that helps you stay organized- This adorable pincushion. I love that the pins look like sprinkles!


Something with your favorite animal on it- Her favorite animal is a cat, so she got me this cute Hello Kitty beanie baby. I <3 Hello Kitty. Cheesy
Something related to yarn or thread- Sari silk yarn! So pretty!
Something that reflects your personal style- She wears a lot of black, but still dresses femininely, so she got me these pretty barrettes.
The fluff in this picture is my cat May who insisted on being in this picture. We'll get back to her later.


Something edible- She lives in a Polish neighborhood, so she bought me these Polish chocolates that I've already started eating. My grandparents were from Poland, so this was actually pretty cool. Smiley


Something related to your non-craft hobbies- reading is her favorite non-craft related hobby, so these are bookmarks from her favorite local bookstores.
Something local- Chicago magnet. She picked one out that showed Lake Michigan because I used to live a hop, skip, and a jump away from the lake and miss is terribly.
Kitchen staple- Sandwich container! I actually really needed one of these, haha!


Something with your favorite color on it- gorgeous knit flower headband. The blue of the flower is her favorite color...which sadly didn't photograph true to color.


Something related to reading/literature- The golden snitch from Harry Potter stuffed with organic catnip! She has recently started reading the Harry Potter series (so no spoilers!) and also has cats. My cat May absolutely went nuts for this! I wasn't able to photograph the package right away, but May managed to fish it out of the box on her own. I didn't want it to be ruined before I got a picture, so I had to take it away from her and put it on top of the bookshelf. She managed to get to it way up there too! Anyway, she loves it so much, that I decided to make a little photomontage:


May is totally in Hufflepuff btw!

Thank you for the awesome package Courtney! <3

I thought I was running behind, but I actually have 5.5/10 items done for package 1. Anyway, just thought I would update since I've been quiet. Can't wait to see the gallery, and congrats to everyone that graduated recently!

School is finally out for me, and I've had a few days to relax, so now I can concentrate on this swap! I can't believe someone sent already!  Shocked

Just sent in my questionnaire, and was lucky enough to have FinRaziel request to be partnered with me! Really looking forward to crafting and getting to know her. Cheesy

I haven't done a swap in a long time, and the timing is perfect on this one for me. Looking forward to signing up!   Cheesy

Thank you! I am leaving out the darts. I'm currently having some problems with the sleeves (I guess that's what I get for not using a pattern lol!) but the ruching looks nice. I'm still new at sewing, so don't expect anything too fancy, but I'll be sure to post pictures when it's done!
