Well, "My name is Sue, how do you do? Now you're gonna die!" would have taken up too much space...  Tongue

Thanks for the responses everyone!

I did another round of feedback, please check your status in your profile and on the first page of this thread and let me know if anything is wrong - I am really at my hairbrainedest ever these days.

knittychick - the weather forecast is for some silly crafting over the weekend, I hope that will be it... I'm wondering what is the penance in Craftsterland is for being ridiculously late on your own swap. I think after this I'm going to go into rehab for a while...

Since I saw the "Radical Knitting and Subversive Crochet" exhibit in NYC last February, I'd been wanting to try to knit portraits.

With my Mom's SO's birthday coming up, DH had the perfect idea - why not knit a portrait of Johnny Cash?

So I made a gauge swatch, prepared graph paper according to the gauge, photoshopped a photo of The Man, copied it onto a chart, and charted the words (from "Sam Hall") and got to work.

The colorwork is a combination between stranded and intarsia - since it's going to be mounted on a piece of felt backing I didn't really care about the appearance of the WS.
I'm two weeks late with it. Knitting through having two sick kids and no sleep at night, to name a few, does not go particularly fast...

Anyhoo, I'm really proud of myself for this, and now just have to be willing to part with it and give it to its rightful owner...

She makes good-looking kids and she can craft, too!  Shocked

Love the package.

I was lying about things being crazy here and not having time to craft, I just wanted to take everybody's ideas.

The photo doesn't really show the color well - the blue is actually teal and purple. I really enjoyed the handpainting, and have been waiting patiently for time to do some more... in the meantime my ideas notebook is fattening with sketches of colorways I would like to make...

Wotta fabulous package!

I am very simply in awe...

And Linda, looks like your son climbed out of a pretty good gene pool  Wink

Wow! I'm glad you got it, and glad that you liked it.

The bag was my take on Cat Bordhi's Moebius Quiver. I didn't make it with feltable yarn, and I'll admit that I wish I had more time to put some lining in the bag and some sort of closure at the top... But if I had tried to get that done, the package would probably still be stuck with me.

The yarn was my first ever handpainted (so far I had only dyed solids or kettle dye), and it was a lot of fun to make. The colorway is named Harrell, after jazz musician Tom Harrell who inspired the colors with his music. It's a washable DK merino, 129 yds per 50 gr skein, 4 skeins.

I bookcrossed "Tuff", with the hopes that it gets passed on after a good read.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with the yarn (and how it knits up, I resisted temptation to keep some for myself).

Time out!

Every time you two start going on about your suggestive choccy I get up and have another piece of chocolate. At this rate there will be none left for poor DH!

Yeah, mine also should have been there by now, but you know kids and stuff.

knittychick, maybe you could send her a label instead of a bottle of it? or do something with the label?

Oh you just gave me the bestest idea ever!!!!! Thanks! I'm so excited now.....Yeay!

Can you feel the love in the house?

Beer. Sounds like a good idea. Hum.
