Okay, so at first I was really against reverse stalking.  But then when hottyblonde wrote the thing about having a kid, I was like, "oooh, that's not me," and now I'm sort of intrigued that I could cross folks off the list and have it potentially narrowed down a little bit.  Plus, even if somehow I managed to figure it out, all the blanks make it that much more exciting!

So maybe a little reverse stalking could be fun.  Grin

I don't think I could keep up if I tried to reverse stalk....I mentally say "oh, not me!" or "hmm...." when I read hints, but then I forget who said them and, quite honestly, I don't want to go back through our 140+ page thread to figure it out!

Dear Stalkee:

I have little progress to report, as school has kicked it up a notch and work has been insane.  But!  I did try a brand new craft for a small, and though it is not totally done, it is turning out quite well!  Very exciting and I hope you get lots of use out of your new ________.

Exciting update.  My partner had an item on their wist that was crocheted, which I only tremulously know how to do.  But I wondered: could I knit it?

Sooooo, I grabbed some yarn, grabbed some needles, and started playing.  And I am super excited to say:

I've written my own knitting pattern!

I've been knitting for a long time, but have always said that I am a crafty person, not a creative person.  Leave it to someone else to figure out what to do; they can then show me how and I will do it.  But today I left that attitude behind, used what knowledge I have, and wrote up a spiffy pattern! 

I will share with the Craftster knitting community once this swap is over and the project in question is no longer a secret.  Smiley

I managed to start and finsh a medium today fo my partner.  I have three more things to make for sure and I am excited about the one I am fixing to start.  Since I am off work for spring break I may even be up in the wee hours working on it.  It will be anothe large.  The last two items should not take vey long as I have all my supplies and even went into work today to enlage a pattern and print out something else to use.

Dear ____________,
     I went through your wist one more time to finalize what I am going to make you. So many great options to chose from, I can't wait to get started! And I know you will be happy with what I plan to make since it is all directly from your wist  Wink I have everything I need already to get started on your medium and one small. I will definitely keep you posted!
                                                                                             Sincerely, your friendly crafty detective Smiley

dear partner.....I have come to a cross roads......the large I am making just doesn't feel like a large, I mean it is but doesn't look it.....same with the medium, even though I spent a few hours digitising the designs for them both. They look fabulous I must say, SO having said that I decided to bulk up with extra smalls, weeeeee so fun I have one done, I bought_______to make one today, it is currently on the line drying after I washed it first, and I have a set of __________ in the cupboard to make the others.

I also have a few other things I have collected that are not crafted to add in....

I can't wait to send to you, just wish I could see your face when you opened it.

crystabrittany:  I am impressed!  I've always said the same thing about myself "crafty but not necessarily creative" so maybe there's even hope for me!  Nah, probably not, but I can't wait to see your pattern.

I reverse stalked in another round of crafty detective and I found out I stink at reverse stalking.  My partner turned out to be one of the first people I crossed off the list of potentials.
