i would recommend you start at the beginning, and actually DO each step - it makes far more sense than if you just read the steps.

otherwise, without knowing where you're running into trouble, it's kind of hard to help you out - sorry.

i'm also not generally on these forums much anymore -
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Over 30 Fine Wine Geezer Swap Round 2 on: March 12, 2009 04:08:37 AM
hi everyone -

I know that I've been long absent from craftster, and I apologize to everyone who wanted a round 2 of this swap.

due to a lot of crap in my personal life, as well as a new job with a lot more responsibility, I haven't been in a position to be doing, or organizing swaps...

so I have no problems if one of you wants to organize a new round of this - it was hella fun, and while I would love to be able to do it again, I hope you'll all understand that I'm just not able to.

Sevs has my email address, so if any of you want to get in touch, she has my explicit permission to share my email address, and I"ll try to offer pointers and things I learned along the way in the first round.

Again, my apologies for not being about to do what I promised I would, by doing another round.

peace and tranquility to you all

2.  forest canopy shawl in noro kureyon sock yarn (done)
3.  striped lacy socks in ONline supersocke cotton (done)
4.  tahoe sweater for my mom (just needs seaming and the button band)
5.  pangea's shawl KAL (on the needles, clue 2 just came out today)
6.  blue jeans shawl in handmaiden seasilk (on the needles)

and i may cast on another pair of quickie, self-patterning socks, just cause i like handknitted socks.

I got angelled!!  Bronzfrog graciously stepped in to angel for me, and made me a surprise that she knew I had been hoping - an uber cool earring holder/tree/thingamabob!

It's made from a record!  AND.......... AND...... she knows i love dragonflies, so pay careful attention to the custom label in the center of the record - it's a beautiful dragonfly.

I've already put earrings in it, and it's hanging in m y bedroom - check this out, though!

thanks, guys - today is the end of my second week, i got software to actually DO something the other day, so yesterday I was the fix-it guy (website had a few issues)

today i'm meeting with a software company to bring in an entirely new software system, and rebuild the website from the ground up - so i'm still alternating between "this is cool, i'm queen of the internet", and "OMG, what have I gotten myself into!!"

it'll be ok - first paycheck next tuesday, I wanna see those numbers!

just so you all know, I haven't forgotten about you, and this swap - things at my old job got weird (new manager that i really couldn't work for), so i ended up getting a new job - just finished my first week.

so i'd still like to do another round, just need to get my life (and my budget) back in order before i can do it, ok?

they're not coasters, they're for a quilt - it's going to be all squares made by crafters

I received yesterday from Sharyn62 - and it's hard to believe this is her very first swap!

Sharyn originally picked me for a little of this, little of that...... and put together this amazing package!

first up - squares for my craftster quilt, and a thread catcher (rubbish tidy for anyoneo down under)

then, Sharyn knew I was looking for a couple of the smaller size, longer length circular needles for my lace knitting obsession.... she had a couple that I was seeking AND a vintage hairpin lace loom/pin (whatever you call it!)

in the world where toilets flush backwards (also known as down under), these are now called twin pins (not circulars), and the little pamphlet on hints for their use was pretty funny - i guess i've been knitting my lace shawl to and fro!

and last, but absolutely not least!!  Sharyn made me a fabulous wall hanging... all blues, yellows and golds, and it just FEEL like an ocean-y sort of wall hanging...... complete with 2 channels in the back to slip onto a decorative rod and hang on the wall!

Sharyn, thank you so much for everything!  this was an amazing package!

and i get emails that have discount codes, occasionally, for online orders.

i got the ball winder and the nice wood swift for myself for xmas last year.  don't think it cost me more then $65 for both.

haven't regretted it for a second.

I have some of that yarn!

and Im steeling her ball winder, shhh dont let her know  Wink

I think I've even gotten a few much smaller bits of this yarn from someone else.  Probably the yarngasms are spreading all over!

And yeah, that ball winder must be sumthin'! The middles are so tight! What is it? Where do I get one?

I second that! Where do you get one?!?!? I like to pull from the middle but I can never find the right end to pull! I'd rather re-wind them the way I like.

Spill the beans Dulcinea!! please  Roll Eyes
