HA!

i claim poerava for a yarngasm!

this is my first claim this round, all my claims from last round are sent, and I'm in wisconsin

wish list (really big wishes in bold red)!

KNITTED AND CROCHETED THINGS:

NEW *** hand knitted socks (US size 7-1/2)

NEW ***   a felted case/wallet for my iPod Nano?


a satchel bag like this http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTsatchel.html  (bright colors, use up all your felting colors?)

this felted backgammon board (or something similar)  http://www.diynetwork.com/diy/na_knitting/article/0,2025,DIY_14141_5311864,00.html

i love this felted bag - http://www.talklikeapirate.com/knitlikeapirate.html

the felted monster slippers in the SNB book?

SEWN THINGS:

NEW *** 6" squares for my craftster quilt (6" on the outside, yes they'll be 5-1/2" when i put them all together

a flamenco skirt like this  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=3905.msg29436#msg29436

*** NEW *** a messenger style bag - big enough to hold my projects and all my normal purse stuff?  maybe like one of the necktie bags, or one out of felted sweaters?

can anyone figure out how to make a shrug jacket like this?  I LOVE this jacket, but this is the only picture I have of it
http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea/7e8bc1ec576c4d291d9c7cd844f89887?offset=40

another big wish - the pants from Burda Pattern number 8316 - they're a pair of pants that I love - view A (long, not crops) in the smallest size (and we can talk about sizing) (I can provide pattern and fabric, I just need someone who's a better sewer than I am to actually make 'em)

If anyone loves to sew, I love this skirt!  would love a soft drapey sort of fabric
http://www.garnethill.com/jump.jsp?itemID=12386&itemType=PRODUCT&path=1%2C2%2C4477%2C9140%2C9143&iProductID=12386

a shirt like this, but long enough to tuck in - PM for sizing, please
http://www.kambriel.com/topwhite.html

Amy Butler Weekender bag - i'm actually needing one, and this would be a great bag to pack my stuff in!

OTHER CRAFTED STUFF:

NEW *** home made, cold process soap - prefer citrusy scents, or fresh outdoorsy ones - nothing real heavy

NEW *** some kind of fun hair scrunchies, clips, headbands, something I can wear to work?  My hair is to the middle of my back, but some days i just want it out of the way!

a small, simple stained glass window in the style often found at the flea market, along these lines:  http://www.robomargo.com/Dscn1137.jpg

*** NEW *** if we have any potters - a bowl or two, or cups?  I saw a cool thing, called a yarn bell, it's pretty much an upside down bowl/flower pot, with the hole in the middle, you put your yarn on the table, put the bell over it, feed the end of the yarn through the hole and your yarn doesn't run away (or get eaten by the cats) while you knit!

stained glass pendant or bracelet, especially if it was dragonfly or butterfly or iris

some sort of artwork for my bedroom?  it's all in oceany type colors, could be art, a collage, a quilted wall hanging...

*** NEW *** embellished / stencilled hoodie - dragonflies, irises?  adult size medium (i like them big and comfy, and preferably pull over, not zipped)

SUPPLIES:

NEW *** there are a couple of circular needles i'm missing in my collection, especially for shawl making... US5 40" long, US6 40"long, US8 40"long (i use them for magic loop too)

hand-spun yarn

*** NEW *** hand painted yarn - if you love to hand paint yarn, and have bare DK weight, i could really use 880 yards (generally 2 skeins?) in some blues/greens hand painted something, or 1200 yards in a laceweight?  i can dye the yarn, but i haven't gotten up the courage to try to do with the paint brush yet!

crafting supplies:
  • NON-Koolaid dyes for bare yarn
  • bare yarn in a worsted or laceweight
  • chunky weight wool - it's not like thick n quick, and it's not  like regular wool - it's somewhere in between, with a gauge of about 3-4 st. / 1 inch on about #8-10 needles...  anyway, in white, dark blue, forest green, deep purple, chocolate brown, something like that?

Knitting and crocheting books - if one of these is just taking up space, I'd love to get a copy:
  • *** NEW *** Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch
  • *** NEW *** Wrap Style: Innovative to Traditional, 24 Inspirational Shawls, Ponchos, and Capelets to Knit and Crochet (Style series)
  • Twinkle's Big City Knits: 31 Chunky-Chic Designs
  • *** NEW *** Knitting Circles Around Socks: Knit Two at a Time on Circular Needles
  • *** NEW ***   Favorite Socks: 25 Timeless Designs from Interweave


Whatever you're really good at - my wist, and my list, are a good indication of the sort of things I like - if there's something you're really good at, and you think I might like it, feel free to plan a surprise - truly, when people make things in friendship, they're received that way, too
   
something inspired by my wist  http://www.wists.com/Dulcinea 

kandy kakes and devil dogs!!  I think i need more chocolate kandy kakes, and I just ran out of devil dogs <sigh> (they don't sell them in wisconsin)! (if you don't know what they are, you probably can't get them by you)

and if i stall out the swap, someone yell at me, and i'll add more stuff.

... right... about me.  I'm the REALLY old lady in the crowd (somehow, those AARP mailings aren't quite so funny anymore!), the one peering over the bifocals.  I have 1 teenager at home, and my day job is a computer programmer.  I have no allergies except MRI dye, nickel (easy on the jewelry stuff, folks) and a couple of antibiotics,  no issues with animal products, would prefer to avoid religion/religious articles and politics at all costs.... my favorite colors are the saturated jewel tones, think ruby, sapphire, emerald... i don't do terribly well with pastels.  We live in an apartment, where space is always at a premium... so small things that sit on tables and shelves and don't do anything except collect dust aren't a great thing here.

Thanks in advance to anyone who chooses me
15  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you let a muggle down nicely when they ask you to knit something? on: June 02, 2008 03:16:07 PM
i seem to get asked a lot, lately, how much it would cost for me to make [insert item] - and i always start by telling them how much the materials were.... that usually ends it right there.

shrug - wool was $60
shawl - handpainted wool was $32

Wow, $32 for enough handpainted yarn for a shawl is not bad at all.

well, it was way more than i would normally spend for one skein of yarn - but it was screaming to come home with me, so i treated myself - and i love the shawl, wear it often enough.......... it was totally worth it.

LOL, i was just thinking i have to join again, so i can stalk poerava - she has it on her wist
17  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 34 Discussion on: May 31, 2008 12:56:52 PM
LOL

you know how it is.... i have to carefully consider these things
18  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 34 Discussion on: May 31, 2008 10:20:18 AM
nah, you got claimed pretty quick.

i'm thinking if i sign up again next month, i need to start a completely new wishlist....
19  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 34 Discussion on: May 31, 2008 07:59:14 AM
since i've apparently completely stalled out the swap, you should have no problem getting everything updated <sigh>
20  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Ongoing Wish Swap Round 34 on: May 29, 2008 07:04:58 PM
I'll claim kinberlypie for Solid worsted weight yarn scraps (at least 4 yards long, acrylic is best) for my yo-yo afghan (which sounds suspiciously like a yarngasm to me)

this is my 3rd claim, 1 in transit, and these 2 should go out this weekend.  I'm in wisconsin.

Sorry for stalling this out, folks - if anyone has any other idea, please feel free to PM me
