Yay, She Loved it!

Also, I have a disturbing and horrible secret to share with you: I rap about knitting. Yes, that's right. Rap. Behold:

It's charted this time
for more complex stitches.
Lemme lay out a rhyme
'bout the twisted rib, bitches!

Makes the hos come a-runnin'!
This fucker's just stunnin'. ^_^

Don't judge me. >_<

The Unconditional Swap

I signed up for the November installment of craftster's Unconditional Swap, in which one chooses a person who has already joined the swap and posted 3 wishes for crafted items. One then selects one or two wishes from the person's list to fulfill and does so within a two week period. One then posts one's own wishlist, but is not guaranteed any wish fulfillment. Anyway, the girl I selected wanted a hobo bag, little tins to embellish, and a brooch to hold her shawls closed. I chose to fulfill the bag and tins wishes by making/assembling the following:

I gave her several tins and oddments to adorn them with, as well as two hobo bags. I couldn't decide between the two ideas I had, sooo.....she gets both.

I'm particularly fond of the grassy one. I love the way the stencil turred out, the closure, the lining, everything. It just looks so polished.

But I have to admit I had a lot of fun with those ribbons. And the fabric was so bloody SOFT.

Anyway, I hope she likes her stuff. I stalked her for several days before I figured out what to make and I really did put a lot of effort into it. I also hope she takes better pictures, as these turned out not as good as I would have liked.
