1  Re: Magic Yarn Ball Round 7 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by tindad on: February 03, 2008 09:15:22 AM
Karma Chick received my MYB, and she liked it. I have pictures of the stuff, but i don't have a picture of the ball. Hopefully, she can add it.

I started with a decoupage box of "stuff on my cat" pictures. It isn't great, but it was my first try.

Inside the box are stitch markers and a beaded row counter bracelet. unfortunately, the picture will not upload to the craftster photohosting.

Other goodies in the myb were bracelet, lip glaze, chocolate bar, journal, notepad, stamp, bloom loom, krafty knit hook, notecard, lotion, lipgloss, and Japanese toy.

I put this transfer tee shirt on top of the ball. i didn't think it was like the bunching.

Here is the yarn. I included Blue Alpaca Organic Cotton for a cat stuffie. it will be very soft. I also included some Moda Dea ticker tape for a scarf. I knew it wasn't my thing, but i thought Karma Chick might like it.

In the corner of the yarn photo, you can see my helper's nose. Here he is:

I enjoyed putting all of this together and crafting/ shopping for Karma Chick.

I received a great package from mimikachu.

These are altered postcard. . . so funny:

She sent a pouch for keeping tampons and a fob to hold a condom:

Here is a beautiful bag with different images of Venus.  I already have my current knitting project in it:

The final pic has a camille paglia voodoo doll and a flip book with about 100 woman quotes in it.  I think these are my fav items, but it is hard to pick.

This was my first international swap, and i loved it.  thanks, mimikachu. i had a great time, and i love my swag.

My swap partner was great! Every part of the package was both lovely and highly functional:

The container is a fabric covered box

the stick markers are great!  i include just a sampling here on some dpns.  My partner sent a great dpn holder, also shown.  It holds 4 size 8 perfectly, and Im sure it would hold 5 sock needles.

Here is everything in the box. 

Thanks again, CjSachiko!

I finally took pictures.  I did 9 rows of a ruffle, and I bound off with the color from the center.  both of those choices were about my yarn supply.  I didn't figure the ruffle in when I bought.

However, I like the different color on the edge.  I think it pulls it back together.

Anyway, the baby is due in 5 days, so it was time to be finished.  Good luck to everyone else!

I'm mostly done with mine, and I've been working on it for almost a month.  It will be about 42" across when complete.  It does start to drag when you are about 2/3 of the way done.  Currently, the blanket has nearly 700 stitches in one round.

I checked "knitting on the edge" out from the library.  I think I'm going to put a ruffle on the edge.  I think the edge is too small as written.  Thoughts?

Re: needles, i am currently using 2 sets on mine.  I already had 2 circs and I didn't want to bust out the $ for a third. 

Another crafter told me how to do it--knit the new needle on, and stop when it starts to get full.  Remember to place needle caps on the open needle ends you aren't working with (I used rubber bands). Next, take the bottom needle and loop it up to the stitches to be knit.  transfer the needle cap from the knit-to needle to now inactive needle. knit till you run out of stitches on the active needle, then move a needle cap. you will be knitting with 2 different circs again.  repeat.

6  pinwheel blanket knit-along in Knitalongs by tindad on: May 27, 2007 12:08:44 AM
When my yarn arrives on Tuesday, I'm going to start a pinwheel blanket from Oat Couture.  I'd never heard of Oat Couture before, but the pattern looks great. (pic from their site attached)

it is similar to the free pattern one listed at knitlist.


Anyone else want to knit a pinwheel?  I'm using bamboo #8's, and blue alpaca organic cotton: nut, sage, and vanilla.

my bff is due in August, but I'd like to get this done by the end of June.
