I'm finally getting around to posting the pictures from the wonderful yarn ball that yelutci sent me! I love the yarn so much.  I want about 8 more balls of it.

I didn't get a pic of the ball before Sad  I couldn't find my camera and I couldn't wait.  It was neat though, she'd wrapped the big needles and the folder with the pattern in the ball too. 

This is the folder she used to hold the patterns.  She made the rock, paper, scissors, lizard spock game onto a card to play! Its so fun.

and she included these stickers to help play the game...

And this is the pattern.  I'd said I wanted this one, and she included a whole bunch of examples!

This is the purse she sent -- it wasn't in the ball, but that's okay! its the fat bottomed bag, and I have meant to make this for myself for a while! Its even lined and has awesome buttons on it.  I love the colors!


This is a shot of all of the supplies that were in the ball.  Each item was wrapped in tissue.

there's a broomstick lace pin, some knitting needles that will probably make a better pin, she said, some embroidery floss, buttons and iron on letters!

And here's all the crafted items

there's a bookmark and a some crocheted earrings and a TRIBBLE!!! in blue!
oh, except for these two items, which are totally my favorites
the star trek wash cloth:

and the earrings/stitch markers.  i'm totally using them for earrings (this was the best shot I could get, but they are not blurry in real life.  Promise)

And th is is the yarn! Isn't it great!

Thank you so much!! I hope to have your stuff finished in the next couple of days! Smiley

I'm glad you like it! My puppy really wanted that blue tribble, I need to make one for him, so he'll quit stealing my yarn and shoes.

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.

Everyone's loot is great so far! I've only just finished wrapping the ball, it's .. squatting on the floor.. and I'm afraid this doesn't really count as a yarn ball, more .. yarn-wrapped goodies.. I should have chosen another yarn for better coverage  Undecided ...

I'm amazed at the hugeness of the black ball.. and wow.. six skeins of yarn inside? And I thought I'd splashed out on goodies  Grin

Love the gamer themed package, too! Great pattern!

I received from zkatom yesterday. It was amazing!!! TONS of stuff inside!! She went with my zombie theme. Smiley

Warning....massive photos ahead!!

I opened the box to this

and squealed because I was so excited! and then I forgot to take a pic of the ball with all the body parts exploding out. Just know that it looked awesome!

this was a little note that explained a few things

and now all the goods, I didnt get a closer pic of the slippers, yarn, or my patterns.
she included 2 patterns one for a scarf the other for skully mittens, and the DPn's needed for that!!

all the little body parts on the bottom left are dog toys, and I got some action shots Smiley

2 fleece cat beds

I think he might be a little large for it though. haha.

my Leela loving everything including the cat beds haha

brains!!! magnets

16 beautiful stitch markers a dawn of the dead necklace and some shrinky dink zombies

another zombie necklace.....i couldn't get a good photo Sad

a zombie poem book, a crocheted blood red market bag, and a crochet hook roll with 6 hooks inside

zombie stationary, these cards are awesome!!! haha

and my zombie owl...so cute!!

It took me and my sister 3 hours to unravel everything!!!!!

Thank you zaktom!! I had a blast unraveling this ball!!!

I love personal swaps, I currently need art (paintings or something to hang on a wall) but I'd be up for anything.
