NaBloPoMo 1: Swaps of Awesomeness.

So I thought I'd TRY to chime in here a bit more often and the best way to kick that off is surely to show you things other people made me! YAY!

So I made my friend Cathi this mug rug:

Mug rug 2 for Cathipink

It's roughly 7 x 13. A mug rug is either a mini placemat or an enlarged coaster, take your pick. I really make it the way exactly the way one would make a large quilt. Except it's mini.

And in return she made me this gorgeous wonderful Different Lines shawl (for you Ravelers, FYI it's from a Veera design, one of my favorite designers!!).

Swap with Cathi, lucky me.

I super love it not just because it's SO my colors and it's SO soft and awesome...

Swap with Cathi, lucky me 2.

but also because it's closer to a skinny scarf shape than a big triangle shawl shape...

Swap with Cathi, lucky me 4.

and that means I can just wrap and wrap and wrap it however I want.

Swap with Cathi, lucky me 3.

I think I got the better part of that swap, didn't I? I'll be back tomorrow with more...from swaps that I have yet to fulfill my end of the swappage! YIKESABEE! But I'll get to them, I swear....

I think you both made out great with that swap! The mug rug is adorable, and that shawl is to die for.

GAH I love your different lines! The thing about the shape and its wrapability really makes me want to cast on.

Dude, I'll so make you a Veera scarf if you quilt me something...
