I've been participating in quite a few swaps the last six months or so. Here is a sampling of some the projects involved. So from the top, left to right.

1. The first one is a tote I made for Megan in the International Tote Exchange II. This is before felting. It's a Noni Pattern modified. I striped the bag instead of leaving it solid.

2. I received TWO cool bags from Katy in the Mid South. The first is like a Sophie bag in a really Impressionistic colorway. It reminds me of Monet.

3.The second one is a tres chic cabled handbag. I love it!

4.To finish off the one skein swap, I received from Nan in Colorado these very warm Wool of the Andes wristwarmers. I'll be using them this week when I go to Salt Lake.

5.My great Funky Scarf pal Beth in Oregon sent me the most beautiful funky scarf. It's a lace neckwarmer in specially dyed (my favorite colors) sock-weight yarn. The pattern is a really cool wave with little bobbles on the edges.

6.I chose to make a "fingers" scarf for my Funky Scarf pal Miriam in New York. Her favorite art piece is Birth of Venus by Botticelli so I picked colors from that painting to make stockinette strips. I then joined them together to get this. (coming soon, due to blogger picture uploading trouble)

Hi Mycki! I'm glad you like the bags :)

Cher, I made the cabled bag for Mycki as part of the International Tote Exchange 2 swap.
