Always good advice, I find it awkward when people start quoting money in terms of size, I didn't skimp on quality but at the same time I'm a student and don't have a lot of money to spare on buying equipment. I much prefer the length of time as a size, it means less money worries.

I wanted to add one more picture of the knitting/yarn bag; it is hard to photograph, and I took several before I got one I liked.

I am adding this to my wists! You have no idea how much it drives me crazy when I crochet to have the yarn rolling all over the place getting tangled. I got a weaved garbage bin from the dollar store to use but it's now used as storage since the yarn kept getting caught in it. *Sigh* Fabulous work!!!

Glad you were able to take a better picture than I did, good posing. Happy to report both the yarn house and stitch markers are awesome. The little pocket holds my scissors and unused stitch markers right where I can find Smiley Easy to grab headed out the door, have been showing it off to the other mom's while I freeze my rear off at practice. I think you have several people wisting it now Leslieshappyheart.

I want to see more swaps and what everyone else made! Almost done with mine to send out.

I'm so excited right now I can barely type, I keep spelling things wrong. PICTURE HEAVY DUE TO AWESOME!

Tarmine626 made me the most amazing items ever! She really got to know me and I love everything!



Oh god he's amazing, Death is one of my absolute favourite characters from Terry Pratchett's Discworld, and Tarmine626 got him so right!

Some detail.





A wreath which is going on my wall as soon as I find a hammer and nail.



A Brighid "corn" doll made from raffia in my favourite colours!



Brighid's cross and Moon's eye, both done so beautifully I am in awe.



Fabulous arm warmers to keep my frozen hands warm.



And two extra's a kitty amigurumi and buttons which I can't wait to use!





And just because it looked cute...and fearsome (clearly) Death holding the kitty!



She also made me a swap trophy in the shape of the Eiffel tower which is totally amazing and I'll post a picture of it ASAP!

Tarmine was the best newbie swap partner I could have hoped for she went above and beyond the call of duty to make me the most amazing things and I'm honestly nearly in tears about how beautiful everything is! I really wish I had added more to my parcel now, I just hope she likes what I made because I love hers!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Demi-Kitten, your compliments make me feel so happy Smiley  I am reassured that you like them all.
the last photo is so funny, because Death is totaly fond of kittens! I hadn't thought to involve both amigurumi, your idea is fantastic!

It was a pleasure to make these items for Demi_Kitten. I felt like Sherlock Holmes trying to investigate!
I am impatient to see your items!

just for fun, put the Death under a light for few minutes, and turn off all the lights.........   Wink

Thank you all for your nice comments
