I got my hat from yarnhag today, and it's awesome!

Not only did I get a fabulous crocheted sunhat, I got 4 interchangable bands to wear on it: an amazing band of crocheted flowers, competing for "favorite" status with the creepy crawlies on a sparkly gold ribbon, and 2 fringed scarves to wrap around when I need to be a bit more "serious." So here they are!

The fantastic hat!


The amazing bands!


The imitation action shot (which doesn't do the hat justice- it looks way better on- and I didn't wrap it up well):


I really love it and I'm wearing it on Friday. Thanks so much yarnhag (and thanks for organizing such a fun swap!).

Kudos to you, MEshelltakeone, for starting! Unfortunately, I didn't "plan right" and now I'm delayed on starting until at least the middle of next week.  Cry

I went a little swap crazy and need to get those out of the way, plus a few more gifts. At the latest, I can start at the end of May on Memorial Day weekend. I have a "craft day" scheduled with my friends, so I can definitely start then! And then, I have the holiday to work on something. I do have to do a bit of sewing that day (my sis and I are hoping to get into a craft fair at the start of July, and I need to get some inventory ready), but I usually jump from project to project Wink So, I can squeeze in some quality crochet time. I can't wait!  Grin

I am packing up the box for another swap and then I can get back to this one. I attempted one item and it all went horribly wrong (I sympathize with coral, although mine wasn't as costly). I think I may be able to salvage it, but if not, I'll have to think of something else.

I need to be able to finish soon- I have a huge exam on Saturday and I haven't properly prepared (honestly...I haven't prepared at all)- but I think I might have to finish on Saturday night (after making my Mother's Day present)...

Good thing I've already got a dent in this one...

Hmmmm...where's the butter? Wink Just kidding- he's too cute to eat!

I used to work in a swafood market and was responsible for keeping count of the live lobsters; the count was written on a little white board. Every once in a while, the board would have a lot of extra space on it, and I'd fill it with some random thing. Once it was a poem, which I just have to share...

Leopold the lobster,
(I must be very frank)
Isn't very happy
Living in the tank.

But he must admit it's better,
Now that he's been caught,
Living in the lobster tank
Thank dying in the pot!


And now I really want a crocheted lobster...minus the butter, of course Wink

Thanks for the added info! And, I like the idea of the HPSB  Cheesy My sister is an artist and I could make a little travel sketch book for her...

Thanks for the tips on the Chicago screws, too. I'll have to see what I can find.

When I make some, I'll post pics!

That's a good idea! Too bad I didn't save a copy of my info. Cheesy  I'm sure we'll get info soon- there are a large number of folks signed up, so AmaZing is probably being extra careful to send the right info to the right people (or maybe her internet went out again!).

Wow! I wish I had gotten in on this swap. Everyone is getting such neat kits!

Craftydeb, I think you sent a great kit, especially with the thoughtful details like the geisha! And, cutting out the pieces is a major bonus! That makes it even easier to do!

These are so pretty! But they would be way more than "simple" for me   ; I'll have to use them as inspiration!
