1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: STS (Shop the Swap) 2019 Discussion Thread on: August 08, 2019 03:52:46 PM
Are there tentative dates for the Winter Round yet?  I am trying to figure out what all I might try to get finished, and I start a new job (within the same company) after Labor Day, so I don't know how much crafting time I'll have then. I am determined not to miss this round.

I would be interested in this!  I went WAY overboard with buying supplies when I first got into art journaling, and I would love to take a shot at making pages for others.  I am quite slow though, so I would support any format that meant I could go at my pace (maybe only one a month).

Class/Challenge: Quidditch Round 2 - Keeper
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: Neutral Long Draw Rolags
Brief Description: This is my first Love To Do project completed!  This is 354 yards of neutral wools + alpaca made from rolags that I made myself on my blending board.  It was one and a half full fills of my 8 oz bulky plyer flyer, so I was definitely in one spot for quite a while!  I specifically chose neutrals for my first go so that I wouldn't get too attached to something beautifully colored and get precious about it, but it does mean that whatever I make from it now will go with lots of different things!  I was hoping to get enough yardage for a small cardi, but I still need to figure out my wpi and see where I came out at.

So a broken big toe put me out of commission for a little while, but I'm limping out onto the field...

Class/Challenge: Quidditch Warm Up
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name & Page Link: ATC batch
Brief Description: I keep a set of ATC backgrounds made up and have a specific little drawer with appropriate sized embellishments for them, because they are the perfect "warm up", "I don't know what I want to make today", "everything else in my craft room is a disaster" craft.  No real theme, just getting back into the swing of things.

I've been out of town so I kind of missed the end of last term, but I'm excited for my first round of Quidditch, and I need to decide what my first OWL is going to be!

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Astronomy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Cow Ami for Jayden
Brief Description: I learned to make amigurumi two years ago when I tore my ACL and needed to occupy my mind so I didn't go crazy on the couch.  At that point, I finished an ami for my youngest niece, then I made one for the middle niece, and finally one for the oldest niece.  (Now I'll probably have to start over at the beginning with the youngest one...).  Taurus is a bull, so I'm definitely representing with this cow ami.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: February Detention
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Green Laney Bag
Brief Description: This is a test bag made from 100% stash, in order to try out the bag pattern I want to use for one of my Love to Do projects.  I also thought that the center panel might be a cool place to try some embroidery in the future.  The picture washes it out quite a bit, it's actually a pretty vibrant green. The pattern is the free Laney Hobo from Swoon Patterns.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Arithmancy
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Floral Embroidery Sampler
Brief Description: I randomly got overcome with the urge to learn a new craft (not uncommon for me) and started a Craftsy class on embroidery.  This is the finished, floral-themed sampler.

Good luck with all the mice cleanup.  Our cat once cornered a baby mouse in my sewing machine pedal and I had to do a mad run through of all my fabric to make sure nothing had been contaminated, but I got lucky and nothing had been.  RIP fallen yarn scraps. Cry

Class/Challenge/House Pride:Flying
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Long Draw Batt Spin
Brief Description: So this spin was actually expected to be the precursor to long draw spinning, letting twist in.  I was afraid to try a completely new technique because this was a custom made batt I got from LeapFeetFirst in the Shop the Swap.  I was going along, letting twist in, kind of spacing out while listening to a podcast, and lo and behold I was accidentally doing long draw!  (I had watched plenty of videos about it, so I knew theoretically how it worked.)  So this really was kind of unintentionally "lifting off" and enjoying the ride.   Cheesy  And bonus, I got a nice hefty skein of squishy yarn at the end!

Are you planning to do another round, kartiana? Since I decided to sit out this round of the STS,  I would probably have the bandwidth to jump back in here. No pressure, though; just curious!
