The onsies are very cute--love the colored ones, especially the orange!

awww--the Valentines' hat and your daughter are so cute--and of course, perfect colors! Cheesy

Just checking out the great bags!

I missed the swap but I fake joined it and will be making myself a filled bag!

Probably will be borrowing some ideas from all of you Cheesy

Well--I obviously need to practice reading charts and joining colors properly...I started the hat in the same I always did, but I need to use only 60 cast ons to fit my head...so deleted one of the hearts and tried to space them out around the hat...then I started the hearts, but after six rows, I realized that I must have miscounted because I was not getting the heart shape!! FAIL!

I frogged out the six rows and finished the hat using three colors: black, white and red...but no hearts! Sad

I am going to practice just making the hearts to see where I went wrong...but at least you got me interested in making a design...I wore my hat to work and everyone is admiring it... Cheesy  so SUCCESS!

Thanks, Aislynn!  I am racking my brain for ideas to use the little bits and bobs of fabric and yarn! Cheesy

ha ha The adult bib is definitely something I am seriously going to have to make...so many of our friends get sauce all over themselves when we serve Italian food!

I also love that you recycled the paper boxes!  We use them as storage in my office but we have so many that I think I will snag a few to pretty up for my own storage!  Great idea!

Trickymcvomit!!! You are so cute in your hat!

The blue cornflowers are so pretty in the tea, aren't they?  I like making it in a big clear teapot and then straining it since I love seeing the colors!

I am glad you like hot and spicy flavors...I am addicted to the chili pepper hot chocolate...it will definitely keep you warm as you are outside shoveling snow! Cheesy

I am glad you did not eat all the tea cookies all at once! I snuck one or two when they came out of the oven, and I think hubby snagged a couple, but I think there was still plenty to fill the can!

You have been a wonderful partner!  I enjoyed every minute of this swap and can't wait to see what you sent!

mmmm...now I feel like having something warm to drink...

pseudo_pix...I love the two scarves you made--the cord one is so interesting! Also, I have seen the three part scarves you make and they are awesome!

My list of drinks to try is getting really long...that blueberry tea looks yummy!

I am with you...I just do not have the knack to do hand embroidery!  I love it, though, to look at and admire!

Here is what I made in the Keep Me Warm Swap (my partner received!):

Crocheted slouchy hat (the red yarn is handspun scraps):

Scrappy knit scarf made with leftover yarns from other swaps--a great and fun destash project!

Then I made these for what should have been a Steelers win Sad...oh well, I will still wear them on game days!

Actually, these are also my college colors, so I can wear them for Homecoming events! Cheesy

Need to take pics of my Luna Scarf and my Turvid one skein scarf!

rolf--oops off topic laughing...I will post a pic then...

scarf made with a bunch of yarns --basically, all scraps!  I made this for my partner in the Keep Warm Swap! I also use different stitches and used the ends as part of the "design"...maybe some of my old swap partners will see the yarn I used to make them something! Cheesy

ha ha I almost think the Fragile sticker translates to "shake the hell out of it"...

I have a couple of things to finish up and then I will review the lists again...I think I spotted a few things to make, but I want to encourage everyone who put up a list to try to include a variety of different crafting skills required items...I just don't think I can learn how to do some of the things in such a short period of time Cheesy

Is there anything you CAN'T knit?  These are pretty awesome...and look at your sweet self boogie-ing down!  Yay for solving a problem through crafting!
