wow! I didn't know we had a drunk driver catcher in our midst! That's insane!! I grew up at the end of a pretty unpopulated road in Alaska and somehow in one spring, we managed to catch 2 drunk drivers in our yard. One actually found a sink hole in the yard and got her car stuck literally IN our yard, while the other hit a tree, then proceeded to pee on it. As if breaking a tree I planted with my family as a kid wasn't damage enough, let's pee on it!  Angry Oh well. they  both got arrested, as my next door neighbor (my Uncle) is a police officer  Grin

Back to the swap, I guess Wink My large item didn't take too long (Only several hours) but it cost me over $30 so I'm counting it as a large item.

In the "Information and tips for SWAPPERS" thread (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6553.0), it says this:

By Time
-Big=3 or more hours
-Medium=2 or more hours
-Little=2 or less hours

By Size
-Big=A shawl, a shirt, a skirt, a set of jewelry with four to five items, a purse
-Medium= one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small- Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks

By Price
-Big= $30 or more
-Medium=$10-$30 dollars
-Small=$10 or less

I think those are good rules to go by.

And if that is the case then all of my items, so far, are large either by size or time.

I don't know if it's been mentioned yet (I'm pretty sure I didn't see it on the thread, could be wrong), but has anyone read Rowling's epilogue explanation on mugglenet? Very informative....

Oo will go read that now Gougeaway, thanks for the heads up!

I'm so close to finishing! Cheesy

I have to admit, i'm quite novice at most skills, so i keep feeling like i've not made a good enough box, so i've sort of over done it.
This is my first swap, so i'm really unsure of my judgements, so i've sort of compensated by filling it best i can.

Oo, i totally understand swap anxiety now.

What?  Can those words be used together?  In the same sentence?!  Grin

Cheesy You'd be surprised. My hubby keeps finding tote bags filled with projects and keeps saying "Another one?!" I just laugh at him. He just doesn't understand, but he enjoys the things I make. He's starting to take a liking to the knit dishcloths I've made (they don't leave fuzzies on the countertops like the ones he bought before we met) and he's actually starting to warm up to the idea of me knitting us reusable Swiffer pads...anything to save a buck.

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

reusable swiffer pads...I never thought of that before.. can you use acrylic yarn and make it work just as well? I'm mostly looking for it to pick up dog hair... Hmmm.

If you are looking for the pad that picks up dry stuff, ie: dog hair, then I think that the acrylic should work just fine. However, if you want it to get wet, I would recommend using cotton/dishcloth cotton because, from what I've been told in the Knitted Washcloth KAL, acrylic doesn't hold water very well and molds over time. Eww, I know. Wal-Mart carries a fair selection (at least mine does and I live in a teeny town) of Peaches 'n Creme for $1.27 for a 2oz skein. 1 skein can make 2 knit washcloths, depending on the pattern you use, of course. I plan on using the leftovers from the cloths I'm making to work up some Swiffer cloths and I plan on "padding" them with cloth diapers that my daughter doesn't need anymore (I'm sure that scraps of towel would work well too!).

Samsara, thanks for the awesome links!!!!

Here's a picture of my Peaches 'n Creme stash. I think I may have an addiction.  Cheesy

Big item 100%, woo!

Trying to find a computer at tafe where I can print free without anyone seeing  Cool the one I usually use has run out of ink. Not because of me, though!
As if I would want to pay $2.20 for ONE A4 PAGE at the school library
What the hell are materials fees for?!?!

Sorry, went off on a tangent there.
Hopefully will get a bunch done next weekend, then can work on the mediumish items and seeend!! I always get so eager that I buy the mailbox and write the address on it weeks before sendout.

OHMYGOSH just had a brilliant idea. Maaaybe..maybe it's just silly.
