another big wish - the pants from Burda Pattern number 8316

Noro Kureyon - if you have any leftovers in your stash, i'm trying to collect enough to make lizard ridge - only need 7 more skeins! <<<--- thanks, Sunspotted! *** 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!
Knitting and crocheting books
- NON-Koolaid dyes for bare yarn
- bare yarn in a fingering/DK weight 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?
- if one of these is just taking up space, I'd love to get a copy:

- 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!!
Now that I have a decent supply of devil dogs, I think i need more chocolate kandy kakes (they don't sell them in wisconsin)! (if you don't know what they are, you probably can't get them by you) and thanks to everyone who sent me devil dogs!!
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.
