So I’ve been talking about this swap forever but until now hadn’t actually done a whole post. Sorry about that. One of the sets was sent to my house by mistake (instead of my school), and I had to wait for my mother to send them to me. (I may have mentioned this in a previous post.)

Anyway, as you may or may not have been aware, I recently participated in an inchie swap. We were all put in groups of seven and made a total of 49 inchies: seven groups of seven for six partners plus yourself. This was basically my second experience ever making inchies, so I know that the quality of mine are far below some of the other people in the swap. Though that doesn’t say a whole lot because there were some very talented people in my group:

She also included a Twinchie and three bonus inchies. Here’s a close-up on the inchies though:

Compared to all that talent, my inchies rather pale in comparison. Still, they were a ton of fun to make, and as people have said, they are addicting. I can definitely see inchies making a regular round on my craft rotation. Here are the ones I made. They are organized into thematic sets in vertical columns and each horizontal row went to a different person.

Since I made a total of 49 (seven sets of seven) and I only sent to six people, I kept a set of my own for myself. Here are the ones I kept:

I am fond of all of them, but I definitely have some favorites. For example I love the one of the girl with the word “Twist” as well as the one with Zooey Deschanel that says “Love Story” (that came from an ad for 500 Days of Summer, by the way)

I took all the inches that I received and framed them so I could have them on display, though I have yet to actually put the frame up on the wall because I haven’t glued down the inchies I got today. But trust me, it looks awesome.

In other (knitting) news, I’m somewhat stalled on Watermelon as I ran out of yarn halfway through the second sleeve, so I will have to obtain another skein. Boo. I have, however, cast on for another project, so that’ll be coming up. I’m actually already three quarters of the way through it, so an FO post will be happening soon. Stay tuned!
