I tried to click the link on my profile to this swap, but the link is no good.  Has anyone else had this issue?

Oh gosh, I wanna sign up for this swap, but I can't even wrap my head around how I would make something like this for someone else!

I've done this swap before, and it was a lot of fun.  I think I might sign up for another.  Smiley

I'm so glad that you liked everything, Whistley!  I was nervous about sending three skeins of yarn, BUT it is a yarn-related swap and I really really love the fibers I sent!  Noro is one of my favorites, and Cascade 220 is a classic!  Ella Rae (the green stuff) makes some pretty fab yarn too.  I really enjoyed all of the stuff you've sent me!  I'm using the stitch markers right now, and the Manos del Uruguay has already been used for a project.  Thanks again!!!

I got a really amazing project from Whistley!  You'll have to forgive me because I forget which item is for what category on some of the stuff.  But it's all really great and I LOVE it!

A really cute project bag.  I love this thing!!!  I LOVE KITTIES!  "Something dotted", I think?

The white yarn is "something local" and the bottom skein is Manos del Uruguay silky merino! (something M, I presume).  The white yarn is made from start to finish locally (the person who made it did EVERYTHING down to shearing the sheep, if I remember correctly)...I'm thinking about hand-painting it. Smiley  The silky merino is this really pretty mix of pinks, purples, and browns.

The funny thing about this item is that I made her the SAME EXACT THING, though I think her version looks way better than mine.  I saw this item on her pinterest and added it to my own.  Love this!!!

"Something funny" - an octopus with a mustache! Cheesy  and "Something green" - a crocheted cactus that I had on my pinterest!!!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

"Something recycled" - decorated altoid tin, "Something hard" - stitch markers (I think that's the right category), and the pendant was "sender's choice"

Thanks again for the really great package!  I love EVERYTHING Smiley

I received a super adorable pin cushion frame, and a needlebook from dessadoll!!

Sorry for the delay in posting a pic!  Things have been a little nuts around here.  I love them both very much and have already put them to use!
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Malabrigo drop-stitch cowl on: October 11, 2013 01:05:06 PM
I've been on FIRE lately!  I'm on a yarn diet, which means no more new pretties until I use up some of the yarn I already have...so that means it is time to get to work! 

Malabrigo Rasta is probably one of my all time favorite yarns.  Here is another drop-stitch cowl in the colorway "piedras." 

There is no solid pattern here.  Ever since I learned how to do the drop-stitch technique on a scarf, I've been experimenting with it in other garments.  I had intended for this one to not be so long, but I think it looks nice regardless.

He looks so much more cute in person! Smiley

Behold, the Fauxthropologie Fox Stole.  It took me FOREVER to finish it...but I'm really pleased with how it came out.  Made a few minor adjustments so it would be more like a scarf than a stole (made the body quite a bit longer)

You can find the pattern here:  http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fauxthropologie-fox-stole
