Just wrapped up a personal swap with iampoison (where I was spoiled accordingly). Here are a few of the crocheted things I made (more to come, but since her second package is soon it be on its way, I can't post them now):

A similar scarf was on her Wists. It was knitted, but since I can't knit worth a lick, I crocheted it. I think it turned out okay, considering the HOURS it took to hand-stitch all of those felt letters on (it was fun though, since I was watching Hex and The Bourne Identity whilst doing so--plus, I'm just so glad it came out alright):





I also made three book thongs, each with three or four beads and charms at one end, then one matching bead at the other. They each came in a different size, for paperback, hardback, and magazine reading. Here are two of them:



I think I'm definitely going to be making myself some book thongs (they're SO expensive in the store--it's ridiculous!), as well as some of these kiwi bobby pins. I actually love how they came out ^____^ (just crocheted them up, sewed on seeds in black thread, and hot-glued the bunch to bobby pins):



Thanks,
Joa

That scarf is so clever and cute. Too bad it's rarely scarf weather out here.

I didn't come up with the idea, it was on her Wists as an official Tootsie Roll item. But I did wing it when crocheting it, not too hard. There's about 5 rows of dcing with cream, then 3 rows of red, then a billion of brown, and then reverse the beginning; add tassles and letters, voila! I used an I hook, I believe, and 4-ply worsted weight.

That scarf is adorable.  I never would have thought to do something like that.

I can't remember, but you can try to study the picture to find out. I tried and think it was like 17 or something? All I did was guess when I was making it, consider how thick and long I wanted it, and then just went from there. Just remember that however long your foundation chain is, your scarf will be a bit thicker because the chains stretch.
