Yay! My first swap!! How exciting. Ok - now to be serious  Undecided

I'm in Australia

I'd like

1. Some shrinky dink plastic sheets for me to make cool stuff with (maybe with instructions too, although I'm sure I'd be able to find them on crafster somewhere) would clear be the best for me to start with?

2. A Hat: An earflap hat like this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=73290.msg688888#msg688888 in black or lots of bright mixed colours (I realise that's a big ask so cable knit isn't necessary if that makes it harder) - acrylic is totally fine with me too. Some ears on it would be too cute but I don't have any idea about these - maybe it's not possible. OR, if anyone has any tiger print material - one from that with ears would be awesome! I have a really small head, if that makes it any easier.  Wink

3. A starter 'how-to-knit' kit. I did learn (about 20 years ago) but I don't remember how. I only ever learnt 2 different stitches and could never read a pattern and was basically stuck on squares and rectangles. Eventually I'd like to make myself some hats and one of those scarves/wraps where it's not all knitting eg. there are rows where the yarn is just spaced out in vertical lines (ok - now you know I have no idea) - is it called dropstitch? Maybe someone you could include a link to a pattern for this kind of thing - if it's suitable for a beginner.

Sorry - that was all a bit wordy wasn't it?

About me - I wear black nearly all the time, when I'm not in all black, it's generally because I'm wearing jeans with a black top / sweater. Therefore, I like to have bright, funky, bold accessories. My current fave colour for accessories is orange (spec. orange & pink together - not that I own one pink piece of clothing). I don't really like pastels or neons. I ride a motorbike (sportsbike) and I've got little fluffy tiger ears on my helmet - gives all the commuters something to giggle at one their way to and from work (also means I can't go anywhere on my bike incommunicado). I don't like cutesy stuff (apart from tiger ears on hats and helmets of course), and my jewellery is generally the only thing on me that makes a statement - everything else is usually quite simple and understated (hence, the all black). I love crafty stuff - sewing, jewellery making and lots of other random things - I especially like recycling stuff to make funky useful things.

Ok, well, I guess that about wraps it up. If you choose me I'll be eternally grateful. Thanks for wading through it all.

Lou

I want to pick someone also but I don't knit or crochet and that's what everyone seems to want at least one of. Tongue
