Ok, for some reason, I thought I'd done this already, but...

I got a fantastic package from kahluakiggy!!
Inside, there was:

Grapes!  (I apologize, for some reason, it's very difficult to see the design in the photos I took) Unable to find pattern.

A black cat, to match one of my own kitties!  Pattern here.

Texas Tech!  My partner is from Lubbock, home of the Red Raiders, and she giggled when she saw this!  Pattern here.

And a Grandmother's Favorite!!


Two oven mitts and a notepad to go in our new kitchen!

Thank you, kahluakiggy, for being a wonderful, and patient, swap partner!

4  Noro Sakura in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by BlondieKate on: January 15, 2007 08:16:05 AM
Ok, so for Christmas, my mom got me 2 skeins of Noro Sakura, in the #1 colorway

My question is this:  What the heck should I do with it?  It's so yummy, so pretty, and I can't think of what to do with it!  My thought is to get a few more skeins of it and make a Clapotis, what do you think?

I received from BlooCanoe yesterday!!

Oh my, oh my!!

First off, the yarn pattern is Knitty's Flora.  So cool, I can't wait to get started!  The yarn is Scheepjes Alpine, in beautiful blues and greens.

And of course, being the horribly impatient person that I am, I had to unroll it!

Inside, I found:
*  Lots of chocolate coins (burp!)
Stitch markers Wine charms, made by Bloo
*  A dishcloth, also made by Bloo
*  Mini-mittens ornament, by Bloo
*  WRISTWARMERS!!!  Um, by Bloo.  So incredibly excited about those, can ya tell?
*  Needle protectors
*  Cajun meat rub (smelled so good inside the yarn!)
*  Tea for Two set (tea ball, honey dipper, dish, and book)
*  Several camping-themed wood cutouts
*  Margarita stamp (which isn't so well shown in the pic, covered by a tree)
*  Lavender lotion
*  Mini-calendar (the carabeaner on it says "Not suitable for climbing"  duh!)
*  Post-its
*  Candy necklace
*  Mini-notecards
*  And something totally cool, a pocket screwdriver.  So handy!!

Thank you for everything, BlooCanoe!  For organizing such a fun swap, and for being an awesome swap partner!!

Thank you so much BlondieKate! I'm going to see if I can hold off unwrapping it right away so I can knit from it... but I'm not sure if I can wait!  Kiss

Well, I caved (gee, that didn't take long!). This morning I unwrapped my lovely yarn ball and was just overwhelmed with all the lovely, lovely things inside! Thank you so much, Blondiekate! I am just so overwhelmed - you completely spoiled me!  Kiss

Nestled in the yarn ball were:
- two fat quarters in fun, cheery colours
- tons of sewing machine bobbins which is just amazing since I didn't have enough (and they are all filled with different threads! that match the fat quarters!)
- dark chocolate sticks, some of which were eaten as part of my weekend breakfast of champions
- two pairs of cute dangly earrings
-the greatest set of stitch markers, some have knitting charms on them!
-a teeny box of mints with a quilting lady on the top
-a sweet little emergency sewing kit made by BlondieKate
-a really great pin with a gorgeous glass pendant on it
-felt soap that has scented my whole place so nicely
-a pincushion I can wear on my wrist! yay!
- some celtic-y silvery buttons that I love
-some more yarn in the middle!
-and a 2.5" quilter's ruler that I will definitley use a lot!

And I'm just going to say again that BlondieKate does a wonderful job of yarn dying... the yarn is so beautiful, I love the soft purple and blue shades. My scarf will be so pretty!

Thank you so much again, BlondieKate! I am chewing my nails now hoping that you like what I sent you, since you REALLY spoiled me! You are a fabulous partner.  Kiss
Yay!!  I was a beast, so I don't blame you for unwrapping!

Because my camera doesn't seem to do purples well, this may come out a little more blue than what the yarn really does look like:

And unwrapped:

A few notes:
The dark chocolate sticks looked to my other half like knitting needles.  Too cute to pass up!
If you decide that the pendant on the pin would be better on a necklace, the pin unscrews.
The felted soap was my first attempt.  Be gentle!
The "blank" yarn is Lionbrand Fisherman's wool, which is what I often use to dye with.  Included about 75 yards so you could try dying yourself!
And the quilter's ruler is easy to add to a carabeaner (sp?) for use as a keychain.  Both the other half and my mother do that.  Good to have a little ruler with you at all times!

I had fun with this!  Thanks so much, Bloo!

7  Re: tote bag....making it bigger in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by BlondieKate on: May 30, 2006 09:38:12 AM
I made my first Booga bigger than in the pattern.  I added 20 stitches to the width, 20 rows to the depth, and about 15 rows to the height (I ran out of my hand-dyed yarn!).  With this, I used up 465 yds of yarn, and that was before the i-cord handle.  If I'd thought more, I would have dyed more yarn, and I could have kept my ratio right on track.

I don't have measurements of my finished bag, but I'll try to measure it out tonight for you.  Here's the finished product:

Blondiekate you did use the grommet tool that you use with a hammer and NOT the one that you squeeze with your hands right...?
No, I used the plier-like tool:

It came with 4 gold grommets, and I used a couple of those to practice on some scrap fabric.  That's when I realized that I needed help!

So that, a 40% off Joann's coupon, and a pack of 8 silver grommets, did the trick!

9  Second Booga in Knitting: Completed Projects by BlondieKate on: May 10, 2006 06:14:17 PM
Love the pattern, but probably won't do it again for a while.

This was done in Cascade 220 Quattro, color 5012.  Handle was done in Lamb's Pride Worsted, color M105 (RPM Pink).  I added grommets.  Wanted to line it, but had a hard time finding a fabric I liked.

It's a Mother's Day gift, and I hope she likes it!  She's a sucker for pink.

ETA:  This is my second one.  My first was done for Knitting Olympics.

I did, I did get my package!!

Inside, I got a cool zippered pouch (for my knitting notions), a matching drawstring pouch (for stitch markers), and a wallet.

Inside the zippered pouch:

I also got a great little journal:

Plus some candy, which (burp) was delicious!  And mysteriously disappeared before I could get a pic.  Sad

Thanks so much, dyanemcs!  Everything will be put to good use!
