1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / MYB Swap anyone? on: June 15, 2012 08:00:02 AM
I Love the magic yarn ball swaps that happened in the past and was wondering if anyone else would be up for another round. I might be willing to organize as all i have to do is work 40 hours a week ( aka no hard school classes that run me for 7am- midnight studying and doing homework)

For those of you who don't know what a MYB is here's the basic concept. A Magic yarn ball is a magical thing full of wonder and is unbelievably fun to make and unwrap. It consists of yarn and 15-20 small trinkets and what you do is wind the trinkets into the yarn so that as your partner rewinds the ball of yarn they discover the trinkets hidden inside. 4-5 of the trinkets inside must be small hand made crafts made by you for your partner. Also you choose a project that your partner will like and the yarn you use for your MYB should be the right yardage and weight so that your partner can complete that project with the yarn of the MYB

Here are some of the past threads for the MYB swap to get your juices flowing:
MYB 15 discussion thread
MYB 15 Gallery
MYB 14 Gallery
MYB 13 Gallery
MYB12 Gallery
MYB Flickr group
And finally a tutorial on how to make a MYB

so how bout it? anyone interested?
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Project bags! on: October 05, 2011 09:20:59 PM
Hey guys.

I just finished a batch of small project bags and figured i'd post it. I can make a Tutorial if any one is interested in how i did it all you have to do is let me know! The awesome things about these bags is that they have a snap top meaning that they can bend out of shape to fit what you need then they Snap right back into the closed position!

The whole lot of them:

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / WIP Wensday 10-5 on: October 05, 2011 09:14:49 PM
No one else had started it so i figured i would go ahead and do so!

I have a few projects waiting for the needles. The one i completed half of today i cant show you as its for a fellow Craftster but im super excited about it.
The next thing i've been working on is my step fathers sweater. i have to get a measurement of the width of his favorite sweater before i can start but here is the swatch:



now the next thing isn't knitting but it's knitting related and i'd love to know if you all would like a tutorial on how to make them ( if you have sewing skills) the top has a snap top that allows it to snap back into the closed position so your yarn does not fall out they can be adjusted in width and depth to what ever you would want:



A ball of fingering weight in there:

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting with cotton on: September 15, 2011 11:21:00 AM
I have decided to take on a big task and knit a sweater for someone for Christmas! Problem is he doesn't believe wool can be soft >< and unless i cut out my tongue and refuse to tell him its wool then he will refuse to wear it. So I've decided to knit his sweater using cotton. Does any one have some good recommendations about yarns ( sport weight) or any tips and tricks to knitting with cotton? it will be my first cotton item I've ever made so any help is greatly appreciated!

P.S He's a little OCD so im not sure how well shedding or fuzzies will go over with him, which is a concern with the yarn i was thinking of using.

So my partner for the make a friend swap has finally posted so now i get to post here!

The socks i knit for her are called Paraphenalia socks the pattern is here they are made from Stroll fingering weight by knit picks in pine these socks are the same size its the funny camera angles that makes them look like one is bigger ^_~







The other pair i made for her are out of the book personal foot prints by Cat Bordhi they are the basketweave socks. the yarn is by knitpicks its stroll hand painted in tea party these were fun and scary to knit as you knit the foot as a tube then cut the yarn and open the knitting to pick up stitches. scary but a ton of fun!

7  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Quilt block swap? on: April 14, 2011 02:29:07 PM
Hey Would anyone be intersted in a quilt block swap. I was thinking it'd be a group thing where you were ina  group with so many people and you send one block to each person. It can be personalized or your favorite block i think the blocks should be about 12x12 for a good size  but am open to input!

Anyone interested in a quilt block swap?
