I am so glad you like everything, ducky Smiley

I have some pics, and I'll post those here.  Feel free to post others when your camera returns, if you want to.  Cheesy

I tried to use some sort of theme for for miss ducky's package, and since she said one of her favorite colors is purple, I tried to use that in at least some of my choices.

Long - braided cord (notice the purple Wink ):



Golden - tabby cat hat with golden spots.  This was inspired by an item on my partner's wist.  Smiley



Lumpy - poly clay beads in various shades of purple/white/black:



Less than 2" - stitch markers made of amethyst chips.  Also, because I am a dork, I made the little envelope for the stitch markers - I got a new book of card & envelope templates.  See the cute little locking mechanism?  (Yeah, I am a huge dork, I know).



L - leather deathnotes journal, the main protagonist is called "L".  no purple here; however, the deathnotes thing kind of trumped the purple.   Cheesy



Local - yarn from locally raised sheep, spun by a local spinner; and sender's choice - handpainted, repurposed chopsticks with purple dots and silver squiggles.

Sherrie B., the pattern for the lace headband is here: http://persnicketyknitter.blogspot.com/2006/06/free-arrowhead-lace-headband-pattern.html  I made it from cotton yarn, although the pattern calls for wool.  I thought cotton would be better for summer.  It was a quick knit, I finished it in a couple of evenings, and I am NOT used to knitting lace at all (I think this was my 3rd lace project).

I can't imagine the patience it took to make such a long braid!
Nice work on everything!

Sherrie B beat me to it! I was going to ask for the pattern! Thanks for sharing it.
I wore it to brunch with my knitting group today and got many compliments!

And yes, as we walked around the 90+ degree market all afternoon, cotton was an excellent choice for summer  Grin

so I'm inspired to attempt this this weekend. I will dig out some needles from the boxes of moving boxes & some yarn & learn a new knitting pattern.

other notes: just venting:
My rental house was trashed by previous renters & so after spending 3 WEEKs packing we were told we aren't moving. so I signed on for a Short sale where I can have a craft room. this may take up to 3 months, but since I have 90% packed. May as well open *ONE* box of yarns/needles/hooks & keep my hands busy. Right?
I love that kitty hat. Becha my 4yo GD would wear that come winter...hmmmm there's a thought, maybe I have just the right yarn over in that box....
I can always make more washclothes--that cotton yarn in that tote there....

Pictures of the fantastic package I received from Disco Queen Highness a few days ago....

Something beginning with L... lovely blue yarn made of merino, silk and bamboo. I can't wait to make myself something really lush with it Smiley


Something golden.... gold yarn!


Something lumpy...a bag in lovely patterned fabric.

I don't know if I'm just being especially stupid today, but as one strap is longer than the other, is there a specific use for it? Or is it just so you can hang it on your shoulder and get into it easier?

Something local... PEANUT BUTTER CUP HOT CHOCOLATE! Never in my wildest dreams could I have thought such a wonderful thing existed! I had some as soon as I finished unwrapping everything!


Sender's choice.....a needle book in Russian Doll fabric that folds up into a cute puffy shape.... I <3 Russian dolls, and I've been needing a needlebook forever, thank you!


Something less than 2".... a needle gauge pendant. I love the colour you chose for me!


And the best thing ever....
Something long....a gorgeous reversible apron with Russian doll fabric!


I can't believe you had the patience to sew on all that rick-rack! It fits perfectly, and the skirt goes all around, which is perfect cuz I'm a messy cook!

Thank you so much Disco Queen Highness!

I received my lovely package from justaddcats yesterday!


something golden: fancy wristwarmers and extra yarn to play with


letter L: a couple of books to teach myself how to do magic Loop knitting!  I'm so excited for this, I've really been wanting to try some socks.


something local: YARRRRRN!  yummy!  This is so going to be socks for ME.


something less than 2": awesome stitch markers - leaves and penguins!!! 
something long: a covered - and beautifully embroidered - tape measure (just like what I made her!)
extras: a lovely beaded bookmark and some wool wash.  Oh, there was also some chocolate, just didn't make it into the picture.  Wink


senders choice: a beautiful project bag inspired by my wists.  I LOVE this tree!!!  And a small zippered pouch to go with it.  I have the same bird fabric at home, waiting to be a pinafore for my little munchkin.
Oh!  The LONG circular needle belongs with the magic loop part of the package.  She thought of everything!


And speaking of my munchkin, justaddcats did not leave her out!
something lumpy: a stuffed meerkat for my daughter made from thrifted sweaters.  The munchkin just LOVES this thing!  She named her Merry Meerkat and is currently taking a nap with her.  In this picture, Merry is posing with Coco, a friend we received from one of the stuffie swaps.

Thanks for being such an awesome swap partner, justaddcats!  This was fun!
