I received!  Pardon me for shouting in excitement, but THANK YOU, SYNNE!!!

Sadly, no photos.  Sad  I'm using a computer at the public library and they don't allow uploads.  My regular internet account is not accessible because it belongs to the college and there's a strike on right now.

I got the most wonderful on-the-go knitting kit.  Not only is it extremely useful and a handy size, but it's meticulously made and great-looking too!

It's an Altoid tin covered in black and white swirls. The lid is green and there is a swirly sheep on it.  I was born in the Year of the Sheep so I collect sheepy stuff - I squealed when I saw this! 
Inside the lid is a convenient knitting needle and crochet hook conversion chart, and the tin is lined in a soft black fabric.  All the knitting essentials are included too: measuring tape, scissors, tapestry needle, row counter, and best of all, hand-made green beaded stitch markers!

Thank you again, Synne!  Coincidentally, it's exactly what I needed, as I was thinking earlier this week of putting together a travel knitting kit to take to stitch 'n' bitch sessions.  And thanks to ElvenOne for organizing this swap!

I just can't get that knitting brooch out of my head. It's the cutest thing ever!  How did you make it?

Sorry to get back to you so late - I'm only able to check Craftster once a week at most (re: strike).  If you go to my blog, on the side bar under "Free Knitting Patterns", there's a link to a tutorial.  It's also posted on Craftster under Knitting, Completed Projects (search for "brooch for a knitter").

Yay! I'm so glad you received and liked it, ax174! Here are some pictures I took before sending:

A picture of the top--it's a regular Altoid tin covered with Fimo and glazed. I tried to make it look like the sheep's tail was getting unraveled into the ball of yarn--I don't know if it "reads" quite like that.

The bottom. Swirly, eh?

The inside with the kit contents--nothin' too fancy w/ the stitch markers, just beads in a similar shade of tealy-green as the box top.

I received today!  It's a lovely keychain from the lovely flyleaf_lvr, and it must have taken such a long time to make.  I'll post when I get the opportunity later... I have such a list of things to post, and it's been such a busy week.  I'll get 'em up ASAP.  Thank you, flyleaf_lvr--and nice job!  Smiley

Synne, that tin is so beautiful. I really like it!
Once you have the tin covered with fimo, do you put the glaze on before you put it in the oven or after?
