Smithyboy, what pattern is that? I love it (and my sister wanted to know too). It kinda looks like Odessa, but not really? I love hat patterns:)

Ok, everyone has had an extra day to send, and won't be counted late until tomorrow. I MUST hear from you if you are going to be late, I REALLY REALLY don't want to give negative feedback to anyone, and it clearly states in the rules when you signed up that late sending without communication will result in a negative.

PLEASE don't make me do that! I'll post this is the other thread too:) Thanks to all of you who have notified me with DC's or that you will be late. You are awesome, and I can't wait for packages to start arriving and to see the goodies. I already found a new hat to make thanks to smithyboy:)

We've had a few more recipients, can't wait to see pictures:)

Anyone else determined to knit/crochet it out? I really want to, my sister is threatening to unwind it while I'm sleeping so she can see everything (and help herself to whatever she wants) and then wind it back up:)

Just the magic ball of yarn..



And everything after...



Thanks so much for being an awesome swap partner!

I'm going to love seeing the pics of everyones goodies.  I think this was that most stressfull swap I have done so far but also the most fun.  It was hard trying to come up with alot of small things.  I had alot of ideas but to big to put in a yarn ball.  But I am happy with the way mine turned out and I hope my partner loves it too.

awesome swap package zenochka/baby-bumblebee! such a pretty color of yarn

We are psychic:) I may get too impatient and give in, but I hope not too. My sister did round 3 and she was going to knit it out but ended up needing the knit from both ends of the ball, so she unwound. I want the excitement of finding things along the way:)

eye_on_sparrow- I had LOTS of too big ideas too. hollylynne was too much fuun to craft for, and I wanted to make all kinds of stuff. I think it worked out, but it was hard narrowing it down:)

Hello friends!  Born2bWild received hers today, and asked that I post some pics... Of course, I'm happy to oblige!

The entire ball:

Some of the goodies:






Now Born2bWild says that she's gonna crochet the goodies out of the MYB, so I hope she doesn't peek at these pics!

I have no illusions of such self control.  I fully intend to unwind the ball as soon as it gets here!!  Wink

wobblerat your MYB is so pretty al wraped up.  I agree I know I will not be able to knit mine out.  I will have to unwrap it right away and it will be easier to knit from a smooth ball rather than one that is tangled around goodies.
