11  Re: Keep Me Warm Swap Gallery!!! in The Swap Gallery by Bugaboo1 on: February 13, 2011 06:07:37 PM
Here is my package from MrsKristina

She sent not 1 but 2lbs of local coffee and then 2 extra little packs I can take to work with me.

An adorable spiral scarf out of soft fleece and a fleece rice hot bag to snuggle up with....came in handy already my feet are always cold when I get into bed so this helped warm the bed up!

I am glad all yours arrived in 1 piece...maybe the biscotti not so much? looks like they broke up a bit?

The tea pot though was the redesign I saw it in an antique store so instead of sending my initial intended drink accessory I made the teapot cozy out of wool with the small tea pot I thought was adorable

Hope it gets a lot of use!

Here is my wonderful package from pseudo_pix!

A beautiful scarf in a ocre yellow tweed wool...so soft! A set of fingerless mitts I adore! Then a container of (I think 16 or so) Mozart's balls, lost count because we all keep eating them. They are wonderful and no frets on the pistachio I have had them both with almond and pistachio depending on the country of origin they were bought in. Homemade is always better.

Then a log of the confection which I have now hid in a secret location known only to me.

I received Friday my kits from Lydiaharper and Stellou I just got home so late I didn't even have the energy to open and wanted to wait until I could play

From Lydia I receive a moma cloth kit

She sent absolutely everything needed including scissors, pins and thread. I am excited to try this out. I do have to share I live in a house full of males who took one look and just went collectively "I'm not asking!"

From Stellou I received a shuttle tatting kit

She sent small samples of her work so I can practice and see if I am doing this right and the cutest tatting to go pouch you see all the thread and shuttles in. Then percys pigs that another swapper turned me on to woohoo

I am very excited to get started with both of these.

Thanks so much ladies!

Finally I have pictures to post!

This is what I received from MiLady

The scarf is beautiful, grey and white with a hint of sparkle. She created matching fingerless mitts with button backs and added in 2 skeins of yarn for me to make what I please.

Then she also sent me a pair of super soft slippers socks that now adorn my feet, I was waiting for the pics to be taken to put them on, a package of really cute tissues for my purse, a package of percy pigs which no we can't get in the US and they are really good, family has already scarfed them down. Then as an added bonus a little spoon to take to work to stir my coffee with.

I loved getting to know her so much during this swap and because she's a very busy girl as well I said I would post what I had my husband take pics of before they were sent.

This is most of what I sent:

and the scarf alone

I spun up about 600 yards of alpaca/merino to create the scarf, mitts and bag and then another 140 yrs of an alpaca/llama blend to send with the package. I added in a bit of halloween candy, a scarf making kit and little rhinestone embellishment.

19  Fun Socks and a few other pairs in Knitting: Completed Projects by Bugaboo1 on: July 18, 2008 04:48:26 AM
I had been eying this pattern for awhile and finally decided to cast on. I used less then 1 skein of Noro Kureyon sock yarn, which I won't be purchasing again.

I made quiet a few modifications to the original pattern. It's listed for a longer foot then my US sized 7.5-8 and I still had to lengthen the foot, changed when I did decreases, changed the heel and toe as well as the under foot. If you have ravelry I have notes on there as to what I changed how and where.

Cast on: late evening July 9th
Cast off: early am July 18th
Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock
Colorway: s180
needle size: 2.25mm (us size 1)
yardage: 346 yards
fits size: us woman size 8

You can see a shadow on the top as they are a little large around the calf and ankle and if I made this pattern again I would modify it further.

These are a modular sock very structured when finished and there isn't a lot of give so they appear larger then they are when off the foot.

And just for fun the original skein to show the colors on the skein and how they came out on the sock as I didn't work the colors on purpose to be each diamond, I just followed the pattern and it happened due to the long color repeats in Noro.

Let me know what you think

Then here are 2 other pair I finished off in the past couple of weeks

For my husband
Cast on: June 10th
Cast off: June 16th
Yarn: Panda Silk
needle size: 3.25mm (us size 3)
yardage: 230 yards
fits size: us mens size 11

And these I started a long long time ago and never finished so picked back up sock #1 and finished off sock #2 a week later.

Cast on: October 2007
recast on: July 2nd
Cast off: July 8th
Yarn: Panda Cotton
needle size: 2.75mm (us size 2)
yardage: 340 yards
fits size: us womans size 8

20  The Perfect Sock Bag ~image heavy~ in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Bugaboo1 on: June 23, 2008 06:10:53 PM
So I knit amongst other things and am always looking for the perfect project bags for what ever I am making. If anyone is involved in SOS they know a lot of people are making socks right now. I was too late for sign ups so I'm just a supporter (and teaser) so made myself this!

[img width=500  there's a lot more info on my blog about it all and more pics. I'm in love with it though and glad it's finished!
