Yep, post your pics and your Thank You pics here.

A little off topic, but thought it was appropriate, I stummbled across some quotes that I thought were fitting in with this swap. (I kinda have a thing for finding a quote or proverb to go with just about any senario)

"For it is in giving that we receive."  - St. Francis of Assisi
To give without any reward, or any notice, has a special quality of its own. - Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Some people give time, some money, some their skills and connections, some literally give their life's blood. But everyone has something to give. - Brabara Bush

Give what you have to somebody, it may be better than you think. - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

There is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving - Henry Drummond

"The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving. - Albert Einstein

I received yesterday from quilted - I'll post my goods later tonight. Smiley

Here's what I received from quilted:

Everything I got, all at once...and yes, it's all on my laptop. Since I'm a college student, I pretty much live at my computer.

The kind little note I received on Wonder Woman paper!

The two crochet hooks I got - the gold one basically hasn't left my hand since I received it. Cheesy

The massive amount of knitting needles I received. I guess this means that I have to learn how to knit now.  Roll Eyes

An afghan hook. I've never even heard of an afghan hook...but I'll probably learn how to use it eventually. Smiley

One of my favorite yarns. It's called Merlot, and it's actually one of my favorite colors ever...and it's sooo soft...I can't decide what to make out of it, but I'm leaning towards a possible caplet, if there's enough there.

I got these weird little yarns too - they're really retro looking and have these odd little bobbles in them. I think I'm going to attempt to knit a lightweight scarf/shawl with the lighter blue since a friend has a scarf with yarn that looks like that and it's awesome. I'm not sure what I'll do with the others yet, but I think maybe I'll save them to make some retro things for my apartment (the red ones just scream "tree skirt!"), but I might just use some of them as practice stitch yarns...either way, they're great. Grin

Picture of all of my favorites. The pink will come in handy when I'm making things for my octopus/squid swap.

Last but not least, here's a picture of my receipt for sending quilted's thank-you present. I know it's not the best thing you've probably ever seen quality-wise, quilted, but it was my first try at the craft I made it with, and besides, it's not "technically" for you anyway. Wink

Let's see what else we get up here! Smiley

Oh, my. I'm not even in this swap and I just have to comment on that package from quilted - absolutely amazing! I'm sitting here drooling on my laptop, just wishing I had been on the receiving end of that package (not that I need more yarn, but you know how it is...). Nice work, quilted - you've got some amazing swap karma coming your way!   Grin

that is such a great package!  how generous to send all that amazing yarn and needles!  i can't wait to see what you make out of it instantkarma!!

« Reply #8 on: February 08, 2008 02:53:13 PM »

I should have sent some very 80s sweater patterns to go with the outdated yarn  Tongue

Maybe something like:


Yeah.... I can see InstantKarma in that Smiley
