I agree with knitting_nyxxie - lots of talent and wonderful crafts on this swap!

SAP ALERT - I so proud of us - I feel like we're the freshman class graduating out of our newbie status and on to all those interesting and hilariously themed swaps out there.

Now I'm still anxious to hear how my swap buddy liked her stuff. Especially since my daughter points to her robot hat to wear even in this 90 degree weather.

I got my swap package from Punky*Bratzter this afternoon! I feel so spoiled, just look at all the wonderful items she made:

A lovely bookmark I'm using to reread Harry Potter GOF, a necklace with a dainty, pretty little cross, an eye pillow and handmade soap that smell like walking into a gourmet coffee bistro, a whimsical point protector, awesome earrings, and (how did she know I needed one?read my mind, lol!) a keychain with one of my favorite Mucha prints on it for my car keys!! Can you believe this only half of what was in the box?! Yep, there's more!:

some Christian rock CDs, a needle/pincushion pouch that'll be PERFECT for doing embroidery, the prettiest knitting needle roll ever, and a miniature of my boston terrier, Maggie! It was so cute my eyes started to tear up!

I love the little pouty expression on her face, and look, she's even got a little squiggly tail like the real Maggie!!

THE most beautiful stitch markers! These'll come in handy for when I knit a Clapotis Grin

and finally here's an action shot of the needle roll after I unceremoniously dumped my needles out of my old makeshift roll and moved them into their new, chic roll! Lovely, lovely lovely- and all so well made!

Punky*Bratzter, you are an exceptionally talented craftster, thank you for making this first swap so awesome!!

wow that has to be the first slipknot knitting roll Ive ever seen.
Miss-Stitch



Haha, i thought i would be the first to make one!  When i was reasearching them, they are a very fascinating group! It almost made me want to listen to their music. LOL... and for those who know me, i am very anti, let just say heavy metal.  I knew a slipknot was a knitting knot and it gave me this idea of making a knitting roll Tongue

Funny how something so hardcore can be turned into something quite lovely.

Everyone whose partner has received has had their feedback updated to "Positve" - Please check and make sure that your swap status is correct.

To check your swap status:

* Click on the link above that says "Profile"
* Scroll down until you see a blue line that says "Additional Information"
* Below this line should be  a section that says "Swap Involvement"
* Below that title is a table with swap information
* Under swap name, it should read "Newbies Only Swap"

Send me a PM if you think you should have "Positive" and don't. I will need you to send stifflersmom and I link where your partner has posted they received or have them send a PM to stifflersmom and myself.

Thanks!
