Linda P, I did find one video that uses only the thumb, but it immobilizes your thumb while you're working. The gal in the video made a big ball of yarn, too- my thumb was getting tired with just a little one Wink

And, cowgirlz, I always use mine as dishcloths. I gave my mom a bunch for her birthday or Mother's Day and she kept one to use as a doily, but all the rest get used as dishcloths.

progress report - I have done nothing else on this since the last progress report, but I am working on a lapghan and will have some nice color ends to wrap from that.   Grin

I haven't found that other bag of little bits that I know is somewhere in my stash...

drat.

the problem with having a big stash that is not well organized in clear see through totes (which I need to go and buy) is that you can't find things without digging through many, many bags of STUFF!   Tongue   but digging is fun too.  Roll Eyes

hehehee - I am up to the same thing, LOL!

only - devious thing that I am - I have recruited an IYP partner for whenever the next round is, that wants the empty spaces of her box filled with yarn so I am sending her a somewhat large box...   Roll Eyes

I guess there are some advantages to living by myself and not having to answer to anyone. Cheesy

i keep waiting for the bf to call an intervention, and with all the swap IP right now the pile of crafty things on my desk is looking scarier and scarier.

about the time my hubby starts to feel like it is too much going on, I get a package with something in it for him or that he can use, and he feels a bit better for a while.

I think of something for him to get and ask for that from my partner every so often, and I will get things for one of the girls every so often, so he doesn't feel like it is just me - which reduces his angst about postage  Wink

i'm going to have to try that, now if i just had more ideas for stuff for him, he's a very difficult man to gift to, not just craft for.

Very clever! Is there a trinket that could be sent along with this swap? Just so more yarn will be allowed in the house?  Wink
