Thanks for reading my wishlist! I'm 21 and live in Windsor, UK

1. Being weird I'd looove a wallet/wristlet with Jabba the Hutt on it. Here's a little sketch of who I mean - WARNING - I cannot draw! http://i2.tinypic.com/swg31h.jpg Appliqued, embroidered, stencilled or however you can do a fat laughing slug shape! Thank you so much, yay!

2. A knitted tea cozy, irony optional Cheesy

3. A panta. A lightweight one (spring is here yay!) and preferably black or brown would be fantastic

4. A simple top - I love everything about this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86855.0 (scroll down for pics) and I like the style of this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=76812.0

5. Candy - anything different to what I get here in the UK would make me joyous!

My favourite colour is green but I like most dark colours. I love turkeys and kitschy things with Elvis on Smiley I enjoy drinking tea and eating too much candy, my favourite films are Napoleon Dynamite and Ghost World, I love everything on boygirlparty.com, especially these http://www.boygirlparty.com/shoppe/mini-edition/pouch/listing/minikittypouch-1.html Thing's I'm not keen on: pink, glitter, Disney, neon, pin-up girls.

Here we go:  I'm a 26 (today!!)  mother of 2, wife of 1 Smiley  We live in Indiana.  I do a little of everything because I stay home all dang day.  I crochet, just learned how to knit and bought a new sewing machine.  I also was a chef for awhile before the family thing.  My husband is teaching me to play bass and he is in a band.  My life is full of fun and seems to be non-stop at times.  We like to stay as young as possible and music is a MUST in this house Smiley
my list:

1. I would like to learn how to knit better... I have a few needles, but no books or patterns so that would be great.

2. crochet patterns.  Any crochet patterns new or vintage.  Fun and funky would be great.

3. a pouch or roll to hold my hooks and needles in.  My current system is a mason jar on a nightstand so I would love anything!

4. patches and pins/buttons: any band or anything funny or fairy related

5. mixed cd's: local bands are always good, anything you listen to... I'm in a rut

6. anything with guitars... bass, electric, or acoustic

7. Homemade journal or any journal for that matter.  I seem to be using more of them here lately.

8. legwarmers and/or armwarmers.  I have a pic of a few in my "wist"

9. food related things or stuff for the kitchen

10.  My husband and I train bonsai trees, so anything with bonsai on it... shirts, bags, tool pouch etc...

11. silk screens  (huge HUGE wish I know Wink )

12. Anything with Gizmo, bears, or little dolls (for my little girl)  any kind of stuffie would be awesome!

13.  Robots or Transformer anything ~ for my little man

14.  Stuff from another country.  Anything at all

15.  Surprise me!  Or stuff you are good at.  I love new things  Grin

16.  Charms... for a bracelet.  1 or 100 it doesnt matter how many or what of.

17.  Mixed paper.  anything at all would be great

18. This shawl.  How amazing is that?!  http://secure.elann.com/ShowFreePattern.asp?Id=107024  (dream on right Grin )

19.  Hair Stuff!!   I just chopped off about 6 inches this weekend and put about a million layers so I can now wear cute stuff again!!  YAY!

Other stuff I love:
. handbags, any shape, color, sizeThank you!!  That's awesome!!!
. scarves!  I can NEVER have too many
. yarn in little batches or lots Smiley any type!
.  Harry Potter *guilty pleasure*
. anything philosophy... philosophy themed stuff would be awesome!!
. RENT and the fashion in it!  The scarves, legwarmers, hats..... it's great!!!
. fairys
. Nightmare Before Christmas.  I love Jack!!
. Gilmore Girls
. Gone With the Wind!!
.  Hoodies.  Any hoodie or purse made from a hoodie.  XL or larger Smiley

favorite colors:
I like earth tones, pink, and some of the brighter colors.  The only colors I stay away from is bright purple and gold.

I hope this is a good start.  I would love anything, I'm very easy to please!!
I also have a wist link in my signature if that helps.

Thank you in advance!  Everyone here is amazing!!

About me:
If you're just perusing this forum looking for someone to pick, take me. I'm getting my wisdom teeth out last week (which is also Spring Break) and had absolutely no fun. Help a crafty (puffy-cheeked, sore) sister out.

This is basically a repost of my March list because nobody picked me.
I'm a hip young lady with a penchant for obsessive knitting. I love making and sending and getting crafty stuff. Thanks in advance to anyone even thinking about picking me!

Stuff I Like:
Harry Potter, Chuck Norris, My Little Ponies, Star Wars (Young Jedi Knights with Tenel Ka is my favorite series/character), Centaurs, mermaids, koi, birds, Anime/manga, cosplay, gothic lolita, Tim Burton, and any Yokishita Amano-like artwork.

Stuff I'd like:
-An Owl Purse
-Raddish Earrings
-Zippered Pouches Thank you so much, Nameless Craftster!
-Totes of all Shapes and sizes
-A Skirt (Wrap, Circle, Whatever)
-A shirt with something related to my interests on it  (I'd really really love a shirt with a My Little Pony (preferably with the baby Firefly http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v505/EmilyKin/firefly.gif or Applejack, but really, whoever) stenciled on the front of it)
-Suprise me!

--Also, as a deliciously nerdy project, Im going to be knitting Rons Chudley Cannons blanket from the Newest HP movie.
Any yarn that you have in these colors (acrylic is probably the most rampant in these colors in this case) would be awesome.
....Yarn in burgundy, tans/browns, oranges of all shades, off whites, pea greens, whatever. I'd adore any older, crusty thrift store yarn in hideous 70's flourescent oranges and browns!  Please help the Weasley Blanket cause!

Long Shots:
-Bbloomers (like a pirate!)
-A Supanya-inspired top
-An owl/Faun Plushie / bag
-Mrs. Weasly Crocheted Sleeves. I'll buy the pattern if you'll crochet them for me. (http://www.fruitcats.com/Jo's/sleeves.htm) ZOMG! Thank you so much, Dabba!
