About Me

Member since January 2007

I love fun and quirky things. Weird and unusual. Dark and beautiful. Politically incorrect and funny. Pinups and burlesque.

I call myself a "yarny." I love to knit and crochet. The yarn section is where I head in every store!

I am up for private, US only swaps. Just pm me.

I am specifically looking for cussing and/or nudity adult coloring books. I know they are out there, but I haven't found any in my area.

I have recently been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. It’s really kicking my butt, but I am trying to find a way to live with it. The diagnosis was a blessing because it helped explain sooo many things.

DO NOT SEND ME ANYTHING POLITICAL! ESPECIALLY TRUMP RELATED!.
I loathe him, however I do not wish to bring politics into my fun zone here on Swap-bot. Thank you.

Fun

YARN

Yarns I like:
- With Love by Red Heart.
- Soft by Red Heart
- I Love This Yarn(a store brand of Hobby Lobby).
- Heartland by Lion Brand (and the chunky version too).

- any of Deborah Norville yarns.
- Sweet Rolls by Premier.
- Sugarwheel cakes from Hobby Lobby.
- Caron Big Cakes.
- Caron Cotton Cakes.
- Homespun by Lion Brand.

I also love receiving “scrap” or left over balls of acrylic yarn...solid or verigated...in the worsted weight or “size 4” yarns. I make scrappy blankets and donate to a local church. Balls as small was a walnut or golf ball are perfect...or any amount!!

Yarns NOT TO SEND ME!
- anything wool or blended with wool, that includes the regular Caron Cakes(they have 20% wool).
- the huge blanket yarn by Bernat.
- Caron Cupcakes.
- Caron Tea Cakes.
- sock yarns with a wool component to them.

Crochet/Knit Swaps.

  • I have a big head, so keep that in mind if you are thinking of making me a hat.
  • if I don't like something you have made, it's no big deal because I regularly donate to a local church and will just add your item to the donation box.
  • Acrylic yarn makes my sensitive skin itch if I wear it. Cotton blends feel better against my skin.
  • things I like to make and receive: fingerless gloves, cowls, infinity scarves, ear warmers, shawls/wraps, dish cloths, pot scrubbers, amigurumi, purses/pouches/tote bags, socks.
  • I prefer printed patterns over emailed/electronic ones. I prefer crochet over knit.

This is just a vague idea of what I like. If you have a question, feel free to ask!

——-

If you are my partner in multiple swaps, I will send them in the same envelope to save postage. I have not seen anything that says each swap has to be mailed separately.

——-

I rate fairly. If your swap is sent late without communication, I have no choice. It is the fair rating and is how this site is meant to run. Sending extras or offering to send extras will not “buy” a 5 rating from me.

——-

I identify as 100% heterosexual. However, I support everyone's right to identify however they wish. In the past I have made pride flag specific crocheted items for my swap partners. If you want to do a private swap for something specific, feel free to pm me!!

Crazy Cat Lady

Yes I am a Crazy Cat Lady. I have 13 cats total...all indoors, all fixed, all get along! I will list them as I got them.

Tango is the reason I am in love with cats. He came to me in May 2009 at about 3 weeks old. Starving and covered in fleas. He is now a robust, spoiled orange tabby who thinks I gave birth to him. Lol He is also a grumpy cat sometimes with the younger cats.

Lucas came to me in June 2011 at about 5 weeks. My brother-in-laws semi-feral cat had him and abandoned him at 5 weeks. He is my big Fatboy at almost 25 pounds. He is black and grey tiger striped and looks like a raccoon. He will smack you if you walk by him without petting him. He is a wonderful big brother to all the younger cats.

Sissy La-La came to me in 2012 at 2-3 years old(previous owner wasn't sure). She came already spayed and front declawed (I HATE declawing!!!). She is a soft-peachy orange tabby. She is the sweetest and most soft-spoken, so to speak. But she is the leader of the clan. She puts the other cats in their place with her clawless front paws. She comes running if any of the cats are fighting and gets the fighting to stop. She's pretty bad-ass.

Pepper came to me from the same owners and at the same time as Sissy. She was 6 months old at the time. She is half calico/half Sismese with beautiful blue eyes. She is ivory with black and grey splotches all over her. Pepper is wild and crazy and fun! Her favorite thing is to hang out on top of doors. Lol I call her my ninja-cat because she is crazy good at running and flipping. Her and Hank are best buds!!

Hank came to me in 2012 at 4 weeks old. My friend had a cat give birth under her porch. He is an orange and white tiger striped tabby. He thinks he is a dog and greets everyone who comes in like a dog does. He is super friendly and likes to play as much as Pepper does.

Sweet Pea is a tortoiseshell cat I rescued from under my sisters house in May 2014. She was really tiny, about 4-5 weeks. She is still skittish, even with me, but is a sweet girl. She wants attention, but at the same time doesn't. She also doesn't meow...she more chirps than anything.

Baby Butters is a black and grey striped tabby cat with mackerel markings. She came to me in October 2014 at about 5 weeks. I had taken Sweet Pea to the annual free spay and neuter and someone had brought in Butters. They spayed her even though she was actually too young. The people who brought her in were just going to release her back out to the streets, but I couldn't let that happen. They agreed to let me have her. Her name is because every time I picked her up or held her she would melt like butter. Aside from Lucas(who she is best buds with and cuddles with all the time) she is one of my most chill cats.

Molly was born under my mom's house in January 2015 to a stray my mom had been feeding. My mom and my sister both kept a kitten from that litter and I got Molly. She is what I call a Tortico. She is tortoiseshell colored with a white chest. She is very sweet and likes to suck on my ears. Lol She is best buds with Gypsy.

Gypsy was born April 2015 in my bedroom. I deliver newspapers and a stray pregnant female jumped in my car one day and would not leave. I brought her home and within 20 minutes she was giving birth. Gypsy was the last of 4 to be born; the only girl and the only black one. She was hissing as she was leaving the birth canal, and I knew she was going to be a spitfire! She doesn't meow, she squeaks instead. Lol

Wednesday (female) and Pugsley (male) came to me in October 2015 at about a month old. An acquaintance had gotten them only to be told by her land lord she couldn't have them. They are both solid black and are super sweet! They were sickly when I got them and I had to nurse them with goats milk...they wouldn't take kitten formula(and you know they can't have cow's milk). Pugsley, who I call Bubba, has decided his favorite place to chill is on my left shoulder with the back of his head pressed behind my ear, just purring away.

Gracie Lou was born to my mother-in-laws outside cat in the country. She is the only long haired cat I own. She is mostly white with grey/black striped patches on her back and face. She came to me in July 2016, about 6 weeks old. She thinks if I am on the toilet or scooping cat litter that I need to be petting her the whole time. She is very sweet.

Paddy came to me in November 2017 at about 8 months old. My niece’s dad (sisters ex husband) was going to toss him out in the negative temps because he was reaching puberty. My niece begged me to take him, how could I say no?!? He’s very sweet, cuddly and one of the chattiest cats I have ever met! He likes to follow me from room to room in the morning when I’m getting ready, chatting the whole time. He is a long haired orange and white boy. He is scheduled for neuter May 2nd.

And I have Jersey, my pit bull. She is mostly black with white patches. She was an early Christmas present for my husband in November 2013; she was 6 weeks old. She is so super sweet and has not a single mean bone in her body. When Pugsley gets all puffed up and growls and bats her in the face, she just blinks and licks her nose. The worst thing about her is that she likes the "treats" in the litter boxes. 💩

Jersey had her one and only litter of pups in April 2017. She gave birth to 7, only 5 survived. We kept two females. Daisy was first born and the biggest problem. She was stuck breach in the birth canal. My husband had to pull her out by her back feet with Jersey's contractions. She's white with large brindle spots all over. She's very independent. Junebug was the last born and the runt. I often had to syringe feed her because the others wouldn't let her in to nurse. She has had a spitfire personality from go. She was growling at my husband at 2 weeks old. Lol She is sweeter then the other two. She is always coming up wanting lovings and snuggles all the time. She is almost solid black with a white smear on her face and white toes on one foot.
