one thing I would love, and I don't know if anyone here will know what I'm talking about.. But my gramma used to sew these "dirty" potholders. I've tried looking online for them so I could add them to my wist. They were very 70s. I'm not going to describe them too much because I don't want to offend anyone, but basically they are square potholders, that have a man or a woman on them, and then a skirt or pair of pants that lift up.

I know exactly what you're talking about.  I had a friend whose parents had them when I was 9 years old (in the 80's)  I first lifted the skirt and thought it was a teddy bear.  What did I know?

I'm really excited about this swap.. sounds like we're going to have fun! Now everyone is posting their wish lists I've been inspired.. I would actually love a skirt, too, a long patchwork style one  Grin .. but I think my list is long enough already.

Speaking of things I can make, I'll mention these bowls/baskets that I've been making to destash:



I'd love to knit fingerless gloves / mitts.. or crochet a slouchy hat.. any excuse to buy yummy yarn will be fine with me  Grin .. crocheting or knitting clothes like cardigans or jumpers intimidates me, though.. I was pretty excited to actually knit a vest for myself this winter.. and it does fit ok, so I'm happy enough with it. But anything that has to fit properly, be assembled.. it scares me  Roll Eyes

Uh, tempting... I love sewing but can't knit or crochet at all. Tried once but I made the yarn grate (does that make sense at all) so my mum "forbid" me to knit at home. haven't dared to touch yarn ever again.

I'll swap for postcards, badges, maps or brochures from everywhere in the US! I'm an English teacher and always happy about authentic material for my classroom.

I'll throw my list up here as well (though I also linked to my OWS list, which has more details)

1. Zipper bags (wristlet size or larger... I love them but I suck at sewing in zippers)
2. Skirts (Elastic waist and/or linen. I love linen)
3. Drawstring bag for spindle/fiber
4. Reusable ziplock bags
5. A nice handbag (like, not totebag style, but like a large purse)

I knit and crochet like a fiend, and I love making hats, cowls, dishcloths, amigurumi, little bags, mesh bags, and slippers. Mostly I like to make quick things, but I knit sweaters for myself (and mostly only myself) too.

Also, I would LOVE to crochet someone a "man parts" keychain. That would highly amuse me.

I too have been waiting for sign ups.  I have to finish a swap due out Monday and really get busy on another.  I will wait to sign up until it gets closer to knowing how much time I will have and which catagory I want.  I am thinking the more I can make the more I will get.  I am a sewer and would love some crocheted or knitted items.

Hi, quaggy  *waves*
We seem to hang out on the same threads!
LOL
I'm pretty sure I'm going to sign up for this one - - sounds like such fun!
