6901  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: FOC Second Chance Wishlist on: January 03, 2009 05:16:41 PM
Hi! I live in Massachusetts and I have an allergy to cats and dogs (but mostly if I come in contact with their fur, or they've been sleeping on yarn or fabric that gets made into something). I love science and nature themed stuff (science jewelry is a big hit at work- an elementary school where I'm the science specialist). I love earth tones, greens, purples and  blues.


My wishlist:
Large items:
A round-ripple or starghan crocheted afghan
Knit socks (my feet are about US size 7.5)
A homemade inkle loom

Medium items:
Tea box
Magazine bowl
Marbled paper
Lightbulb (or test tube) hanging vase
Robot dish set (plate, bowl, mug) with painted (like these) or etched robots
Chainmaille necklace
Set of ribbon spool organizers (natural wood color)
Estrogen necklace
Hand-dyed wool yarn that I can felt
Square bottomed buckets- I'll use them to store crocheted washcloths and linen dish towels in my kitchen
A card weaving kit

Small items:
Gocco notecards with a science and nature theme
Fused glass pendant
Homemade soap (not the melt and pour kind)
Spoon necklace
knit amigurumi critters (sea life, cute animals)
Microscope slide pendants
Insect in resin pendant
Knit dishcloths that have a raised image (like a frog or something) in it
Science earrings (I love these virus earrings ) or cool animal charm earrings (I have hedgehogs, bats, llamas, armadillos, frogs, turtles), but they have to have sterling silver wires (and not the post kind)
Colored animal eyes
Plastic bags to make goldfish-in-a-bag soaps

I have 57 made so far! But, since I'm making 120 (an extra 40 for me), I'm not quite half done... and then there's the ends to weave in...

I've found that it's an excellent craft to do while I'm talking on the phone... but I don't talk on the phone very often... and it's also an excellent craft to do while I'm waiting for something, which I seem to do very often... So, I should be done without any problems (and I probably just jinxed myself Wink ).

I do confess that I started when I was waiting for repair guys to show up at my house before Christmas. I was anxious and needed something to do to keep my hands busy, but something that I didn't have to think too much about. So, these were perfect Grin

fantasticmio- Square #2 is gorgeous as well! I love the colors on that one even more! Now, if you keep up at this rate, you'll have an afghan completed by the end of January  Cheesy

halfwaynowhere- As for the amount of yarn, I always over-buy! But, because I always have to add extra rounds, I don't want to run out... I bought 14 3 oz skeins of Simply Soft (2 of each color and 4 of the black). So, that's 42 oz...

Hmmmm... I do a slip-stitch join by making a slip-stitch on the hook, poke the hook through the spot I'm joining, pull the yarn through the spot, and then through the loop (the slip stitch) on my hook. Does that make sense?


thanks craftADDchick! i joined the ravelry group- i'm usaachan over there! I am going to need fillers, as my square is only about 8", but then I am using DK (the bulk of my stash is DK) and a 3.5mm hook (it's my favourite!). And I finished already and February is MILES away... Wink


Since I picked up the last bits of yarn for my Ravelry set, I'll be heading over there to check things out. I'll look for ya'!

And, I just started up the Granny's Daughters Swap R2, so I have plenty to keep me occupied until February Wink
