I can't believe I almost forgot to share the pictures of my first swap! I decided to join in a swap over at the Ravelry group $10 Amigurumis for the month of August. The theme was dinosaurs and I thought it would be the perfect chance to create my own pattern. I shared my dino already here, but wanted to show the package I sent and received in all their glory.
The idea behind $10 Amigurumi is that each person should spend no more than $10 on the swap (minus shipping of course). You can include yarn, candy, craft items, of something to go with the theme of that month. Basically, anything goes (to a certain extent). Each person has filled out a questionnaire in the group thread, so once your partner has been chosen, you can look them up to see what their likes/dislikes are.
I loved participating in the swap and can't wait for my next one!
This is the package I sent to my partner. She mentioned she loves the color purple, blue and green, adores chocolate and is a teacher.
I was super excited to get my package. Who doesn't love to get a surprise box in the mail (even when you know that it is on its way)!? Here are a few pics of the items I received, including an adorable knit and crocheted dino! As you can see, his body is knit and his stomach, scales and bottom of his feet is crochet!
