If it helps any I learned to crochet from youtube! I would look at a pattern and figure out what the stitch for the abbreviation was then go to youtube and figure out how to do. I would have to pause and rewind a lot to keep up but i figured it out. Now it is so easy to me. I am even starting to figure out my own patterns. The owl was actually my very first pattern I made! Next it will be youtube knitting 101 LOL

I got my package from guineverefree...hol y crap!  My jaw dropped open when I opened the package and I'm still grinning from ear to ear (which I've really needed lately!)  Prepare to drool...

First, a teaser pic of my cat checking out the box and treasure inside (pretty sure she wanted to keep it for herself...too bad Banana, it's mine!)



OK, onto the good stuff...check out this hooded scarf!  I had a similar one in my wists, but this one is WAY better!  I adore the colors, and look at all the patterns!



Yeah, I know you're jealous  Grin  Here are some more pics of all the different patterns she used...

Argyle!



Stars!  Checkerboard!



Stripes!  Other amazing patterns I don't know the name of (in the note she listed all the different stiches she used...I count 15 different stiches between the knit and crochet!  WOW!)



Finally, the action shot (I couldn't wait for my husband to get home to take a pic for me, or apparently even to put on makeup  Cheesy



It fits perfectly!  THANK YOU SO MUCH guineverefree!  You're an awesome partner and organizer!

I'm so glad you like it! I had so much fun on it! When I start out with it I thought "this is way too artsy for me" but about half way through I didn't want to give it up. I"m glad it went to a good home!

Well, I've received and what a fabulous parcel I got!!! I'm getting a bit addicted to this swap milarkey.

A crocheted bag that I'd been drooling over, LINED!! (I LOVE bags)


Stitch markers, which i desperately needed and I absolutely love the glitter in some of the beads (Littlebluegirl suggested i might use them as wine glass charms, but I've completely gone off wine since an unfortunate incident with a 9euro 5litre box of wine and a drinking game that I lost) A felted flower brooch which is in stunning colours


And a much needed bookmark which was put to use shortly after I took the photo

As usual, I'm a latecomer to the gallery.  What lovely goodies.  I especially like the Mario pincushion.  And I'm glad you like what I sent MiLady.  And swapping IS addictive Cheesy  Should be getting my package from you on Tuesday...sooo long to wait!!
