I claim A2K for plarn and maybe a pincushion or some thrummed mittens.


Hi! I am 23, currently working as a nanny and living with my boyfriend of nearly four years. My style is pretty haphazard--I never coordinate anything, so my decorating style is whatever I like, all cobbled together. I love bold prints and art deco and fun colors, but I'm not a fan of pink or orange. I love dark colors, like maroon and navy. I knit like a fiend (almost constantly) and also crochet, weave, sew, spin, and dabble in paper craft and jewelry. No pets and no allergies, but my boyfriend is allergic to all nuts. PM with any questions!

Here are some themes/fandoms that can be used for wall art/hoopla: Stargate Atlantis, SG1. Sherlock (BBC), Star Wars (including Extended Universe; I LOVE Rogue Squadron), Whedonverse, Doctor Who, biology, grammar, knitting, embroidery, Futurama, Questionable Content, swear words, rick rolling, Portal, science fiction (in general), Avengers, Mean Girls (I quote this movie ALL THE TIME), LGBT and women's rights, Disney movies, booze, steampunk, Geek and Sundry

** = really want


-  Knitting stitch markers. I love the little polyclay kind, but beads are also sweet.
-   Wall art of almost any kind.
** hand made soap. Not fussed about scents, but no pachouli. I like florals, coffee, vanilla, mint, etc.
** a crinoline/petticoat (my hips are like 36ish)
- cosplay/costume pieces. I enjoy dressing up as: Scully (X Files), Hermione Granger (Harry Potter), Tohru Honda (Fruits Basket), Amy Pond (Doctor Who), Princess Leia (Star Wars), Mara Jade (Star Wars EU), Han Solo (SW), The Doctor (DW; 11th), Watson (BBC Sherlock) and anyone from the Avengers. I've only ever cosplayed one of these (Tohru), so I could use all the things.
- If you were keen on decorating or making geeky underclothes, that'd be sweet. PM for sizes.
- Ceramic mugs/bowls/dishes. Pottery is one craft I know I'll probably not get the chance to do, so I love looking at other people's.
-   Handspun yarn
-   Shawl pins/brooches.
-   Cloth Napkins (I have a couple and I'd like to have a lot. Cotton or polyester is fine
- decorated coffee mugs (preferably dishwasher safe)
- steampunky hats. I want like a short top hat shape. Ask for more details.
-  decorated Corkboard and/or whiteboard
- This gorgeousness: http://pinterest.com/pin/253186810272313361/
-  An insertable pocket for totebags: http://pinterest.com/pin/253186810272035582/
- A hip pouch like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/253186810271313696/
- Some sort of garter-like thing that can go around my leg that I can put a flask in. Flask optional, obvs.
-  Art like this: http://pinterest.com/pin/253186810271096540/
- Little TARDIS plushie to go with my 5 tenth Doctor
- Drawstring or zippered project bags for knitting
Pretty much anything on or inspired by my pinterest (pinterest.com/brinnanza). I believe I've commented on everything I've gotten or made, so not those things. PM if you're not sure.

Supplies (All supplies packages are fine; I love thrifted)

**  Embroidery hoops
-   Spinning fiber (anything natural, any prep)
-   Large buttons, preferably in sets of at least four.
-   Thread (any color)
-  Tapestry needles. I am ALWAYS losing them.
-   Machine sewing needles (I go through them so quickly) regular, but also leather/denim.
**   Kool-Aid/dye for yarn/roving
-   Awesome fabric--abstract/geometric prints, swirls, Amy Butler-esque, or linen. I love linen. (Linen-look cotton is also great)
-  Aida cloth/linen/cross stitch fabric
-  A jelly roll. I'm thinking about starting quilting but I want to start easy.
-   Resin kit
-  Felt (acrylic or wool, I don't mind either) (all colors, but especially white)
-  Embroidery floss, especially metallic. Also, perle cotton.
-  Corset boning
-  Alligator clips
- Picture frames to fit a 8.5x11 in picture (need three total)


Knitting/crocheting books (but pm first)
Paper crafting/card making books
Back issues of Interweave Knits, Knit1, Knit Simple or Vogue Knitting (or any other knit mags; please pm cause I do have some)
I'll never say no to chocolate or candies, especially gummies.
Cinnamon tea (like Bengal Spice or India Spice. Only herbal, I don't like actual tea)
I looooooove table top games
