1  Re: Christmas Stocking Swap 3 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by mezofoprezo on: November 30, 2007 02:30:07 PM
Ok, ok, my turn! (and for the record, the pink stocking that I made for vala didn't look nearly as lumpy and squashed up before I put the presents in... haha!)

So, Vala_Amaris sent me the most awesome package ever, so I'm going to hereby post about 50 pictures. I hope nobody minds! Cheesy

The stocking she made me was ABSOLUTELY amazing! It's blue felt with embroidery ALL over it:

Here are some closeups:

And the goodies!!!
Smell good stuff (pumpkin spice incense, three candles, some brown sugar body butter, which I actually freakin love, brown sugar is my favorite thing ever):

And taste good stuff (an already half eaten bar of toblerone, some kitkats, some chocolate chip cookies for the DF, Jon, and two mugs filled with candy! Yuuum.

She also sent a journal for my postsecret ideas, some unorthodox greeting cards (which rock, so much), a toy for my rat terrier, Maggie, some felt stuffie ornaments with my dog, fiance, and own initials, and a wonderful purse filled with postsecret/atc/any sort of paper craft EVER supplies! Jesus Christ is was SPUH-oiled!! Oh, and she also made an iron-on transfer tote bag with my doggie's visage on it. So cute!!!

Let the pictures ensue:

And, the coolest thing ever... I got two little packages of puzzle pieces...

I wonder what it could be?

Pictures of my dog and I, and my fiance and the dog! Aghhhh!!!! I sent these pictures to her during the swap, and I love what she did with them.

Vala_Amaris, you absolutely blew me away. I love this swap, and having you for a partner! Thanks so much to Homerof2 and Sevsonlygirl for organizing!

I received from Pia_77 last night! I'm sorry, but there will be many pics because I got spoi-ulllled.  Grin

Here is a pic of the whole bunch:

She sent fingerless mitts, a skein of my FAVORITE yarn Patons SWS, an adorable little cozy filled with the cutest stitch markers ever. And then! the scarf, which is a beautiful lace scarf (fern lace, she says) and in such a great yarn.

More pics:


Cozy and markers

and the scarf!

Thank you sooo much, Pia! And thanks a ton to Drop Dead Suzie and Doe Eyes, too.  Grin

Here are four that I've received (I've got more but these are the ones I have on me):

The text reads: I check out other girls more than my boyfriend does... I just love BREASTS!

Hehe, I love getting all of the sexual cards...
Text reads: I want a vibrator because I think I'm geting carpal tunnel. With bulletbunnybutterfly on the corners of the card Smiley

It's actually really cool that I go this card because my boyfriend and I read Helter Skelter together and love the story of the Manson Family. He was actually up for parole this year, but I don't think he got it, I'm sure we would've heard by now.
Text reads: I think Charles Manson is kinda cute.

This one didn't scan well but it is a lovely card.
Text reads: I get really uncomfortable around people who I think are more attractive than myself.
Hear hear! My best friend is and has always been frickin gorgeous... it makes me feel awful, especially when I feel happiness when she has relationship troubles and I have smooth sailing.

Thanks for your secrets. Cheesy

4  Herringbone Lace Sorta-Cloche in Knitting: Completed Projects by mezofoprezo on: October 18, 2007 05:51:24 PM
I found this hat in my finished-knits stash (less of a stash than a game of hide-and-seek around my apartment) to my pleasure, as I had forgotten I had made this and absolutely love it. I call it a sorta cloche because it is, in fact, not supposed to be a cloche, it's just supposed to be a regular ole-knit in the round hat.. but the crocheted edging in a thicker yarn (cuz Ahm intell-ee-jent) actually ended up adding a nice look to the hat. You can't really see it in the crappy pictures that I took at 3 am in my bathroom last night, but trust me. It's cool.  Cool

And as always, excuse my funny face.

I got the pattern off of Kody May Knits, used silver Simply Soft and some unidentifiable tealy-yellowy-teal from my stash.

5  Modified Sunflower Tam **edit with new pics** in Knitting: Completed Projects by mezofoprezo on: October 18, 2007 04:13:45 PM
I started to knit the Sunflower Tam from Knitting Nature (love that book so much) with some grey wool (Patons), but realized that I was swiftly running out of the grey wool. So, I decided to put in a purple stripe... but by the time I started the stripe, as you'll be able to tell, my imagination was off and running and I just let my whims take me away... so to speak.

I knit it in about two days of three hours each (I could've been faster, I was watching tv.. lol), finishing last night at 3 am, and I am so excited about how it turned out that I can't wait to post it. So Pia, I hope you're not looking.

From the side, right after I finished and blocked:

From the top, laying flat:

And, I was pleased to find out that it looks just as cool if not cooler worn inside out.:

I am normally too impatient to be bothered by any form of intarsia or colorwork (heh heh), but for some reason I really enjoyed this hat. Even to the point, dare I say, that I might knit it again... I feel the compulsive color-pairing  when I look at my stash...  Roll Eyes

**Edit 10/30/07**

I made another one! This time with black Simply Soft and Turquoise Microspun. I'm not as happy with this one- the colors are striking and all is well on that front, but the fit is more loose... I think I'm going to find a family member with a big head to dump it off on... haha. Though I have to say that the more I wore it to take pics, the more I kinda liked it... oh who knows. Whatever. Smiley

6  Hemp sack? Soy sack? Soy hemp sack? in Knitting: Completed Projects by mezofoprezo on: September 23, 2007 08:31:33 AM
I LOVE Patons SWS. Let's not even joke. I would marry it if I could.

That being said, here is a little sack I knit with a smock-y-butterfly-ish stitch that I ganked out of a book. I played the pattern by ear (meaning there is/was no pattern) and used a braid of some more SWS to make the little drawstring.

I made it for more deviant holding purposes (hence 'hemp sack'), but my habit waned at the same time I got a camera, so the switch was only natural!

The front with drawstring ties:

The back:

Vive le Patons SWS!

Here's two more that I've received over the past few days...
this swap is so wonderful. A little dose of human in my mailbox every day or so! I'll be sad when I have them all...  Cry

"I aim to be Katherine Heigl.... so beautiful"

"I like it when they talk about my big BUTT"
Indeed Indeed!!! I love this one.

I have another, but photobucket is taking forever. I'll post that one later.

The girl is saying "He's totally cheating on me with one of his slutty coworkers! LOL!! <3" and the guy is saying "OMG I h8 this bitch! 4real! WERD." The lower corner says "[Love isn't Real]", and the back, poignantly, says "Who are we kidding? We are not happy. <3"

I just wanted to say that when I saw this card I loved it, down to the upbeat depressingness (a trademark of me), and my fiance looked at it and said 'she even uses brackets instead of parentheses like you!'
Ha. Thank you for being like, so totally relateable, card sender. Cheesy

'I feel empty'
I love this card.

'I don't want to have sex, I just want to sleep in a bed with a boy'

I've received two more, but this is the one I had on me at work.

The back, in a tinge of humor, originally said 'Happy Holidays' which my cardmaker scratched out and queried
'dark + racy enough for you?'

Hehe. Thank you for sharing your secret, and for your humor.
And- my porn collection was anything but small by the time I lost my virginity... Wink
