This is what I use. It's small, I can do probably 4-5 ounces at the most but that'd be pushing it. I really like steaming on the stovetop if I have time. Using the microwave certainly is easier, but the colors can come out so cool with the steamer. Especially if you sprinkle some dry powder on your fiber before you seal it up.

Um yes, that's why I came to this thread actually. My stepmom and uncle have both been diagnosed with cancer in the last year. My stepmom, most recently. The last thing I want blasted in my face is gigantic, obnoxious cancer center ads. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but it's actually becoming painful everytime I come on to my favorite website in the world!

They do actually mess up though. The drop down menu is behind the ad.

Minimum Requirements:

3 oz. fiber of your choice
1 small spinning/fiber art related hand crafted item

- Weekly check-ins within the discussion thread, just so we know everyone is having a nice time and is still around. Check in with your partner at least....
- Good communication between partners and organizers. Please do not hesitate to ask questions or for help. We would rather know there are issues than wonder what is going on with swappers.
- To notify organizers if you will be sending late. This is important.
- For partners to take pictures and post in the gallery.

Feedback will be given at the end of the swap.

Thought I'd share my first bit of knitting. I used some neat chunky Italian yarn for it. Going to sew some binding on one side, put some buttonholes and buttons on it and make arm cuffs. Maybe some lace. I know it's silly but my wrists get cold. I seem be be less and less immune to cold every year now. So these will be good to put on after gloves and a long sleeve shirt. Nice and warm and stretchy!

I've been meaning to post this for quite some time, but I've just had all kinds of crazy things happen and forgot.

TwiztidBlood sent me a thank you package for some extras I sent her in a STS claim. She was so sweet! She sent me several ounces of Upper Canadian Village roving in red and some of her fabulous handspun yarn!

What's even better is that I'd just dyed some roving in similar colorway to the yarn. So I'm saving it up until I spin that piece to make something really great!

So thanks Twiz for the package that I'm still holding onto because it's so beautiful. lol It's being coveted.  Grin Cheesy
