Cat9 and I did a personal swap and I scored this awesomely fuzzy and comfy, cozy scoodie.  (My husband has called it a Scarfy, Sordie, Scardie, Shoodie.... he has problems with words.  Wink ).  I absolutely love it.  I also got an awesome crocheted bonus scarf, but I don't have pics of it.  I wore it to work today and left it at the office.
Thank you so much Cat9!  I'd swap with you again any day!  I hope you love your item as much as I love my scoodie!!!

the scoodie looks so warm and fuzzy, and the painting nice and realistic.

me and thesapphiremoon did a swap. i got a gorgeous dangly charmy bracelet- with a magnetic closure instead of lobster, so i can put it on myself.

so here's the whole thing:


and this is what it looks like on pretty ole me!

Glad you like it Smiley  Don't have a pic of that exact item, as I forgot to take one before mailing it...but here is a pic of the one gala_apples saw and I modeled one for her after it, minus the leaf charms.  This one is part of my personal jewelry collection Smiley




Enjoy!  Hopefully I will get the striped tights soon...silly Canada post returned it for who knows why  Huh

After seeing beadedbyamy's awesome awesome snitch pendant, I asked her to do a personal swap with me Smiley This is my loot:



and because she wanted to make up for not finding a nickle-free chain (my skin is annoying D:), she also included these:





For my part, she wanted a wintery-themed necklace (not your standard green and red fare though, more like snowy) so I sent her this:



Now, it's quite obvious that this wasn't a fair trade D: so check your mail box every so often Amy, 'cause there's going to be a surprise in there when you least expect it Cheesy Thanks for a fun (and low postage) swap Smiley

Ninjanator, I thought it was a fair trade. Tongue However, if you'd like to send me something else, I won't argue with you! I'm wearing your necklace right now. It's so gorgeous and I love it!

Here's another shot of my snitch pendant:

My good buddy turbo_mom and I were both in the fill a box canadian style swap with different partners. we decided to do a little personal swap of our own. Here is what she sent me loads of wisty wonderfulness! Smiley


All the goodies together in the ginormous box.


neatest of all were the owl stuffy and the yhetti stuffie from felt. too sweet!


my cat stole one of the gifties while i was trying to take a photo of it.


safe with a different kitty is the neato milk stuffy from my wists.


all together.


more.


the awesome fluffy fabrics that i want to make little monsters out of. i need to vaccum them or something so all the little fuzzies dont come out all over everything. i was covered in pink lint balls after opening the package. it was kinda funny.

thanks so much turbo_mom! hope you like your package when it arrives!

Addicted2knitting and I did a personal swap for Christmas pressies. So, her pics will probably be posted after the big day. The parcel arrived three days before my dd's birthday so I switched a birthday and Christmas present around to give my Potter-phile daughter this as soon as possible.



Isn't it gorgeous? The pattern is the same on both sides. DD adores it. I'm so happy she suggested this swap.

I will post a pic of the 'extra' I sent. It was on her OWS list.



She also sent a huge pile of cinnamon lollies which I ate before I could take a picture.

I adore the applique that Sansa made for me as an "extra!"  Can you believe that?  Isn't she something? 

I loved making the Griffindor bag.  It is a free pattern on Ravelry -- it's called HP House Fair Isle Pouch Bags by Rosemary Waits.  Here is the link for you Ravelry users http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hp-house-fair-isle-pouch-bags . It was a really fun knit.  I bought more yarn so I can make another one of these!  I'm so glad Sansa's dd likes her bag.  I promise to show off the rest of our personal swap after Christmas!

IT'S AFTER CHRISTMAS!  Here is the bag Sansa made for my daughter:





This gift was a smashing success!  My daughter had admired the stablebag Sansa made for me in the knitter's only swap and had swapped for the pattern, but since she is someone who is always making things for others and never for herself (just like the rest of us), I talked Sansa into swapping with me.  Thanks, again!
