1  Re: Yarnies Scavenger Hunt 2 ~ Gallery of Goodness ~ in The Swap Gallery by maiziemama on: August 25, 2008 08:02:17 PM
So I got a hefty little box of goodies from mcook today!!  Here's a pic of the whole loot:

I wish I could individually showcase each wonderful item, but I have painfully slow dial up service, and that would take me all night long!  I did give a gratuitous close up of the awesome yarn she sent!  i love everything girl!  Here's the list:

LOCAL:  This is some DIVINE soap handmade by mcook!   It is chocolate soap and it smells good enough to eat!

"C" A handmade set of blank notecards with vintage knitting shots on them!  Love em!!

BLUE: This is super soft handspun yarn in a Bluegrass Colorway.  I wish you all could snuggle it, it is sooooo soft!

a closeup pic of the yarn:

UNUSUAL A vintage knitting booklet!

SQUISHY: A cloth covered ice pack!  Love it!  It will come in handy with all the kiddos around here getting bruised and scraped up!

FLEXIBLE: Cute hairties for my daughter!

SENDERS CHOICE: two books on learning crochet ( since I seriously need a lesson!!  good sluething mcook!!) and a lovely stitchmarker altoid tin!

well I finally got around to spinning up the wonderful rolags nicolassa sent.  I took the darkest ones, and spun this:

Its 14 wpi, 35 grams, 100 + yards.  I will spin the next batch the same wpi and make something wonderful....most likely a scarf of some sort...perhaps the morning surf scarf.

ohh, a fleece washing station...sounds like a great idea!

Well, this thread got my butt in gear to clean up my crafting space!  So here are some pictures to share!

A big table, with my carder and picker ( both pat green  Grin), which vies for space with my sewing machine and stuff.  It always a bit of a shuffle, whether I am doing fiber crafts or fabric craft. 

And here's the built ins in the closet:

crammed, and not that organized..but, oh well.
