Here are the pics of the wonderful swap package that amymisha sent!! Yay! We loved everything. (and by we I mean me and my bf, who's currently chewing on a purple marshmellow bunny ^_^)

Sorry it took me so long to upload them... The snacks are delicious and I can't wait to try all the different flavors of Larabar!! Thank you Amy!! You totally spoiled me Smiley

This mango candy was the BEST candy I've ever had.

As a craft, she made 4 beautiful hairpins and hairclips with flowers and feathers:

My dollies loved them too  Grin

Here I am with pictures of the wonderful swap package that I received from Rachel / The Raging Sloth! Sorry it took so long, Easter was crazy :-s

Here's the whole lot of goodness <3 Notice the abundance of health-freak items, such as raw or organic bars, sugar free, spirulina, aarrhh! And, notice the multiple items combining peanuts/peanut butter/pretzels/chocolate. Heaven. And Caramel Eggs!! I had heard so much about these, but never tasted them LOL.

Here's a detail of the snacks and cool stuff from Minnesota, I thought the packaging and names were so funny Cheesy Thanks for finding these rarities for us!! The strawberry-rhubarb jam (favorite flavor!! you're a hero!!) is so cute in its tiny jar/pitcher Smiley

And here you can see the gorgeous hoopla that she made for me! There's even a dedication in the back of it, so so cool. Thanks!! It's now sitting on one of my bookshelves next to Amineko, must take a pic of that as well...

And... this is the first snack that I tasted. BTW, they're mostly gone by now, I've been generous and shared the goodies with my boyfriend Wink This bar is SO DELICIOUS. OMG I need to get more! Unfortunately they don't sell them over here ^_^

Thanks again Rachel!! We loved everything <3

5  My first Nautie! in Knitting: Completed Projects by mata on: July 06, 2006 02:10:11 PM
Today I finally used my new bamboo dpns (courtesy of my secret FOC  Grin) and I can say knitting in the round was a breeze with those! I also made my first icords.
And all in all, here's what I made.. a Nautie! Pattern is here: http://www.knitty.com/issuespring06/PATTnautie.html
It didn't really look ok until it was finished. I was planning to send it as a present for someone, but.. my soon to be dh claimed it as "his" nautie.  Roll Eyes

This morning I received a fabulous swap package from aschnebly!! Thank you!!!
Guess what she sent me? Large size circs!! They are probably not 12mm, but large enough to knit that yarn  Grin
I will post pics soon, here's a sneak preview.. she sent me the SnB book by D.Stoller that I sooo wanted, she surprised me with a Sublime Stitching embroidery pattern that was in my wists, and that I love!! Then she crafted for me some super cute, elaborate, striped, cabled armwarmers!! With a little hole for my thumb. They are perfect!!!!  Grin  Grin
Can you tell I'm happy? I've consumed my weekly allowance of exclamation marks  Wink

*edited to add pics*

The other goodies:

Thank you again, aschnebly!!!

I did use that pattern (thanks aschnebly) but used a different yarn and needle size to the pattern
I used super thick yarn on a 12mm circular rather than the worsted weight, so the number of stitches changed.
If you need a hand with that I can dig around and hope I wrote down the changes on the pattern  Undecided
I think I restarted that bag about 5 times before I was happy with the dimensions.
I also lined the bag with some lemon coloured linen (which you can't see) to retain the shape, so it didn't stretch down to the floor when you put something in it!

See, I was thinking of using some yarn I have that requires 12mm needles.. but in my LYS they only have circs up to size 6mm  Embarrassed Sigh.. oh well.. and they haven't even heard of bamboo dpn's..  Cry

By the way, I love the bag you made for me!! I've been using it already, but it will be even better in the fall/winter.. now it's so hot over here I can't even think about wool  Wink

Here are my pics of what Jane Feebles crafted for me in this swap:

Knitted bag and crocheted cupcake (the colors are pretty true to reality! I love them)

Here's a pic of the kitty hat, with front and back paw view! She also included the yarn tag, and an alternative pom-pom thing to substitute the paws with.. but I don't think I'll do it, I love the paws!!!

Here are some action pics of my sweaty face in the kitty hat  Grin

I made this for hertrigger, for the may birthday swap (link to her pics).
I sooo wanted to keep it  Wink

It's lined in black/white polka dot fabric.

I only just found this gallery!
I'm glad you liked everything hertrigger, I really liked that hobo too, I'll have to make a similar one for myself  Wink
Today I received a wonderful surprise package from koi!! Thank you, everything is so cool!
She sent me a yoga themed stenciled t-shirt, which will be perfect for the summer, and a cute tote with the cutest stencil of a chubby, japanese style cat. WOW!! I really love it. I'll probably use it as a knitting bag.

Here is a picture of the black tee:

And here is the super cute tote:
