I am having lots of fun with the Mystery Skein Swap. I almost have my items finished for my swap partner. She sent me some very nice brown, mohair/acrylic blend yarn Baroness. It is really nice to knit and crochet with...but you do not want to have to frog it...almost IMPOSSIBLE.
But I am almost done..... I made a broomstick "ring around" it is from an old pattern...it is kind of like a cowl. I also knitted two coin purses and embellished them with embroidery from my handspun alpaca and some beads. I am working on some fingerless mits now....I am doing the cuffs in the broomstick and then will knit the hand.....I hope it works.....it seemed likeit would in my mind....HA!
I hope to post some pics next time!!
