241  Pink Cloche in Crochet: Completed Projects by PixieVal on: November 01, 2009 04:31:12 PM
After learning to read patterns (finally) this is first of many additions to show up here.
I got this pattern for free from the lion brand website, but it felt like it was getting way too small for an adult head, so I increased a little bit.

let me know what you think!

I have now recieved everything from my partners! I love it all thank you guys so much! Right now I'm just waiting for the 3 people in Canada that I sent to to recieve, and everyone will have recieved from me too!

I had a really hard time getting pictures of the felt food. I was going to wait until christmas to give it to Lily. but she saw it, had to have it, and mommy's a big pushover!

Please post better pics of the felt food if you have any, because Lily wouldn't let me get near it, or set it up nicely! lol

I got my presents on Wednesday from gramma. A beautiful scarf and hat set, and some stuff for my new sewing machine. She was originall going to make me a broomskirt, but some stuff came up, and I asked her to make me a scarf that matched the hat instead. The yarn is so soft, and perfect colors! Thank you so much gramma!!

I have a ton of yardage and yarn to get rid of. If my partners want fabric I'll probably take a pic of all that I am wanting to get rid of and let them pick out what they want. It won't be as surprising that way, but i want these things to go to use!!  Smiley
Look at some of the yarn I sorted through a couple weeks ago, its on the california queen bed in my basement. I'm hoping I can get rid of some of this too, and some of my novelty yarn.

My beautiful package from Ffrogg526!! Man her original partner missed out big time check out the awesomeness. 2 pairs of fingerless mittens, a scarf, swirly hat, and my new obsession- a little Owl. His name is Louie.

Thank you so much Ffrogg526! I had a fun time swapping with you, and I hope you like your package at least half as much as I liked this one. You are awesome!!

These are all the goodies I got so far, except my notebooks, I left them at work! So I'll have to post them when I post my other stuff. Thank you everyone, it has been so fun to get all these neat stuff in the mail!

Package 3 from lilgothkatt. Each package has totally outdone itself, and I love this one!! My favorite holiday is Halloween, and she did my package with that theme in mind. First, from my wist, a thread catcher!!

Then.. Wait for it...... A quilt!!

And some closeups of my favorite fabrics(excuse my lame camera!)

I didn't even get to look at the quilt until late last night because my daughter seized it as I pulled it out of the box!
This has been such a fun swap, thank you lilgothkatt!

And Now my BEAUTIFUL package from TilliEllie!!!
She wraped everything up so pretty!!

My beautiful scarf that I've got so many more compliments at work today! I took a pic with my daughter with it, because she is so much cuter than me!

Is the fringe alpaca?
Then MY owl, made of alpaca!! And something else... My daughter kept taking out of the picture!

Finally I had to put the owls on the counter so I could get a picture of the baby owl too!

The owls are from my wists, and I love love love funky scarves! Everything is absolutely perfect TilliEllie, you are a kick ass partner!!!!

Owl Update:
I am cuddling with them right now on the couch while I'm watching Bones. so ridiculously soft, and snuggly!!

I'm done! The best thing was even though these took me almost 3 hours each (watched a lot of nighttime tv while making these) I didn't have to buy anything! I just used my stash, and was really hoping these would make a dent in my stash.. Lol, they didn't! Anyways, about to PM my partners for addresses and preferences.. Here are the pics!
