1  Re: Christmas Stocking Swap Round 14 - GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by smileyyogini on: December 12, 2018 08:14:52 AM
Yay! I am so glad the package arrived, Bugaboo1!

The ornaments our my second attempt at acrylic pouring. Cheesy The soap is a wool wash from my favorite company. It smells like campfire smores. you wouldnt think that would smell good but its so nom. Without smelling too sweet. The yarn was acid dyed by me. I was attempting indigo because you mentioned liking indigo blue. Its 100 grams of fingering weight...but I think this one works up to be a little plumper than fingering weight usually does.

I received!!

Such a lovely package Cheesy Thank you so much!!

This bag is amazing! I love it so much.

An amazing stocking

A cozy nightgown and adorable project bag. I love all of the unicorn details.

And all of the extras! Thank you so much!

I love the yarn SO much. I cant wait to make a hat and put it on my head. But first...all of the Christmas making. I hope you all are having the best holiday season. Hugs all around. Smiley

2  Magic Yarn Ball Swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by smileyyogini on: October 12, 2018 10:10:53 AM

Hi! Anyone up for a magic yarn ball swap??

Just a couple of smalls in a nice ball of yarn with some fun notions and tiny things that your yarnie partner might love wrapped in? Im thinking about 3 crafted points and dividing between acrylic lovers and wool sock yarn lovers.

Perhaps we could pick a theme for our partner to work loosely around? (purple, Christmas, snarky, Star Trek...?) Anyone that might join me?

Hi! I received from Griminspirations! And she spoiled me rotten. Thank you SO much. We decided to do things a little differently and I am so glad that we did. Its just an awesome gift <3

And the candy. OMG...she wanted to do extras but she sent so much more than I did. I wish I had sent more!!

Look! Its a beating heart with snarky conversation heart candies...I love it!!

It even lights up!

And THESE....they are stuffys of STDs. Who would have thought they could make them so cute. I kind of want to sit them somewhere without the box so when people touch them I can giggle. Is that wrong?

And then this ...ALL this! Was for my little guy that she noticed in one of my podcast videos on youtube. He was thru the roof excited. Thank you!

Such an awesome partner and a great swap. Thank you everyone!!!

Hi! Quick question. Would the shawl I am about to undertake that will take lots more than 45 hours and incorporate two kinds of knitting that I havent done yet count as a research project? Or does it need to meet other criteria?

Its got brioche knitting in the round and lace knitting in the round. Both of which I have never successfully attempted. Smiley Its a doozy. 1200 yards of fingering weight yarn.
