Nerd Swap

I joined a online group on Ravelry.com that xtrainingwheels started called Nerd Swaps. The rules are you sign up for the swap and you are assigned a partner. You make a handmade item and send it to your partner with a edible treats, a ball of yarn, and something other misc. item. The theme of this swap was 'fairy tales'


Here is what I made!

The partner I got said that she like Alice in Wonderland so I made her a Mad Hatter's hat! Here is a better shot of the hat.

My partner chose to do a Sleeping Beauty swap gift for me. She made a shawl in a similar style to Princess Aurora’s from the Disney movie. She included a drop spindle with two small bags of rovings, a brown skein of yarn, and a super cute rose ring. And gummies! They were delicious! She also included a lovely handwritten note with a Aurora watermark showing her wearing her shawl. I thought the drop spindle was a nice little touch for a Sleeping Beauty package.

You can’t tell from the picture, but the shawl is beautifully crocheted and is lovely soft and squishy. I am wearing the ring today, even though it really doesn't match my outfit, haha.

LOL It's not so much taking up knitting that's the problem, it's taking up knitting and doing something with it. I've had a project on needles for at least a year and a half now, and it's just a simple rectangle... *sheepish grin*
