Hey, Moonlightbliss has recieved from me, so she says I can post my pictures of the stuff I sent her:

Here is the knitting bag I made...I made the pattern up, and it is made of black wool on the outside, and some quilting cottons on the inside lining...I appliqued KNIT with a heart over the I on the front flap.


here is the inside:

These are the mittens I made, the top flips off, but the thumb is closed to keep her warm!  They are done in my own pattern and in Sassy Stripes, by moda dea:

and open:


I made her a little journal, I kept it pretty non-specific, becuase I didn't know if she would use it for a knitting journal, or a swap journal, or something else...


Moonlightbliss told me she really wanted a knitting hoodie, so I tried my best to copy the craftstery ones...
I appliqued the skull and crossed needles on the front:
and on the back I appliqued Knit or Die, because that is how hardcore knitting is!

And lastly, I made a yarn mug, to drink toasty drinks while knitting!  It is one of those where you put your own picture in it, but I filled it with wool I had dyed with kool-aide:

I put some thick yarns and big needles (her favorites) into the bag, so she can get right to work!
I hope you like the stuff, Moonlight!  I want to make myself a hoodie now, it was really fun to do!

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Awesome stuff!
I love the bag especially.  And the mug is a great idea!
Is that a Moleskine notebook I see?  My obsession...
