FO Friday: Swap gifties

I started participating in A Swap a Month on Ravelry in July.  I had a little extra crochet time over the summer, I love swaps, and I’ve been reasonably good about destashing so I figured adding one surprise skein of yarn to my stash each month couldn’t be all bad.

Most of the swaps include a handmade gift, and I have a few finished projects that I can share now that they’ve finally made it to their destinations.

The August swap theme was Under the Sea, and my partner was bellascreation.  Her favorite sea creature is the sea horse and she likes reds that remind her of the coral reef.  I decided to make her some coral reef scrubbies and a little sea horse.

Bellascreation was super generous with the package she sent to me.  Here’s a glimpse of my favorites from the swap box.

It’s hard to decide what’s cuter, the deep sea diver or the flip flop coasters.

The theme of the September swap was Twinkle Toes.  My partner was Underbaragarn and she loves green (especially lime green).  I’ve been doing a lot of motif projects lately, so I made her a pair of hexagon slippers.

That’s me modeling (since we happen to have the same size feet).

These were really fun to make, so I might make some more for holiday gifts (or for me!).  My package from Underbaragarn just arrived this week, and here’s a taste of the awesomeness contained within.

Why, yes, that is the very first pair of handmade socks I’ve ever owned.

A Swap a Month is a pretty fun group, and I’ve received some great goodies.  You can see my July swap box here.  If you like swaps, you may want to join in!
