On TNN I have been part of a yarn dying swap group that was based on Vampires as the theme. It was a neat small group and the swaps were brilliant!
My swapee liked the vampire Lestat from the Interview with a Vampire movie.
Because of the vintage style of the movie I handdyed some 8ply wool in rich reds/purples to reflect the colourings of the time plus the blood element!
Here is a picture (taken my my swapee) of the package altogether:
On Thursday my package arrived and by gosh it is cool!
I had chosen Alice Cullen from the Twilight series as my fav vampire. My swapee designed the swap all around the Grand Theft Auto scene where Alice steals a very cool yellow porshe 911 turbo for a high speed sprint…
She eyed me speculatively. “How strongly are you opposed to grand theft auto?”
I had packages that were to be opened in the correct sequence:
The page on the left outlined how to stage my own grand theft auto becuase my swaper couldn’t sqeeze the porshe into the $10 budget 😆
1) With the enclosed yarn knit a balaclava (pattern inclosed)
2) Adorn the vintage gloves (a necessity for covering up glistening vampire skin)
3) Tie the enclosed scraf over the balaclava in a 50’s style – remeber that looking glamorous IS important here
4) Apply large sunglasses (you may need to supply your own)
5) Steal the car!
Here is the opened package all together:
