OMG the vintage patterns! As I have been cleaning up around here I took the time to add all my patterns to Ravelry so then when I go to look for patterns I can see what I actually have. I had no idea the thousands of vintage patterns in my stash and I then searched and am knitting one of them up now. I actually have several that were listed above! Just note for the traditional US knitter/crocheter vintage patterns do tend to be written more like European patterns and less like modern US patterns. Examples like do this pattern repeat twice - would really mean do the pattern then repeat it 2 more times so 3 rounds in total. Or here’s the pattern stitch and repeats repeat for desired length while shaping. You don’t get told round by round what to do they are often a little more dependent on one understanding construction and shaping to use the patterned stitch. A really great learning experience though!

I got two English magazines from @Renstar, for cutting out words for my ‘found words art’.
Since Brexit, customs in the EU are randomly making it hard to receive packages from the UK, so it took us about 2 months, five e-mails to customs from me, one returned package to Renstar and one resend, but now I’ve finally got them.
Thanks again!

I kinda put myself on pause a few weeks ago :sweat_smile: I’m here, but slow at sharing through the mail at the moment… :stuck_out_tongue: You can put me on an official pause if you want but I do have a disclaimer in my list post :upside_down_face:

My list is still active and up to date, but I haven’t had any takers in months.
So I am considering removing it, because, what’s the point?

I pulled everything off my list; it has all been claimed OR is now packed away for moving.

I haven’t had any claims for months either but that’s totally ok with me. The stash is not going anywhere, I dip into it whenever I want something so I’m ok to leave it available for others to do the same. You never know when you’ll need that bit of some supply in a particular shade!
My personal intention is not really to destash my collection into someone else’s collection, it’s just there to help out if you don’t want to add a whole skein, bundle, package of something to your stash when you only need a little bit. Happy to help!

That said, anybody got random steampunk items to send our way? @Pigeon & I are working on a costume!

My list is up to date but I should probably do another look through my supplies and add to it.

Speaking of claims, I could use some charms, bits and bobs, and some eyelets for a fodder school project I’m doing. goes off to peruse lists

I keep meaning to take away the drop down option from mine, but it’s still available. I haven’t had claims from here, but I have been slowly and surely sending some of my stuffing stash to @roler! :slight_smile:

All of my items are still available. I’ll be going through my crafts over the next couple of months and may be adding some things. I appreciate all the items you guys have sent me!

Does anyone want any finished items? I am going through all the shawls, hats, scarves, etc. that I have made…it really is too warm here to wear them much so I am thinning down…whatever is not claimed, I will donate to a shelter up North in PA…most people here do not wear hats even in “winter”…it only gets to about 40 degrees for a day or so…I can check out to see what I have if anyone is interested…
