We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

LoL I dunno, that was gonna be my next question!

I initially said Valentines Day because well, it's the next big "holiday" and I think someone else was asking about a Valentines swap, maybe it leaked into my brain that way. But Valentines is a pretty arbitrary time limit, we could extend it to the end of Feb or whatever. It takes less time than knitting something or coordinating an entire package for a specific person, but I dunno if people have beads or jump rings and pliers laying around to get started ASAP.

Is one month enough time? Too much time?

I think we could always have them mail them out by Feb 14th ( it would still be a valentine's day swap and would buy them a couple more days for getting supplies) I think it would be plenty of time because I have a painful hand condition in addition to everyday life stuff like school, family etc and I can make them in one or two nights, if I have the materials on hand that is Just to be sure though we could always make a poll titled stitch marker swap and ask everyone this question and if they say yes it is enough time then maybe post rules on the first page and update the topic to STITCH MARKER SWAP SIGNUPS IN PROGRESS and maybe set the deadline to sign up by next fridayish..these are all just ideas you don't have to listen to me lol I feel like I am taking over when I am really just trying to help out So what do ya think?

I was just about to link ArtLady's tut on here as well when I saw that Jeanius80 had found it! It is a very good tut. There are others around but she did a very concise job of not only explaining it but SHOWING it.

i'd be up for that, it is small enought that it wouldnt break the bank! and it gives me an excuse to go to the bead shop.
has this got to the stage where we need sign up sheet type things?

the way i would work it is:
1) decide on a sign up deadline
2) create a form for people to fill out which should be PM'd to the co-ordinator by the sign up deadline. The sign up sheet should include their real name and their contact adress, plus an alternative email, incase they are not contactable by PM.
3) once all the entries are in, each person has their name put into a hat 4 times.
4) go down the list of participants and pick out 4 names each for each participant to send to.
5) email/pm the participants with their 4 swap partners details.
6) let them go!

does that cover everything?

The two requirements above are unknown to me. I don't have a Doctorate in Computer yet, but I'm working on it! Am interested in learning to knit in the "Continental Manner", Left index finger was broken and is unfixable. That left me with no left tension finger. My Aunt Jean from Scotland, used to knit in that manner, but I had already learned the "American Manner" at 6 yrs. old from m my Grandmother. I am an avid knitter & crocheter and miss crocheting. I tried to access your video and it wouldn't play. Your Home site doesn't recognize that I already signed up, and keeps telling me my email &/or password is faulty, and I don't know why, so I am trying the reregister route. Please help!!

Hey all, glad to see so many people excited about this one!!

My internet has been down for a few days, but I'm up and running again!

So, one last call before I post up a questionnaire, does anyone wish to "take over" this swap as coordinator? I'm not saying I DON'T want to, or don't have TIME to, but if anyone is especially excited or has a bunch of ideas or whatnot, I would not be offended AT ALL or hold ANY hard feelings if you say "ooooh me me me I wanna!!"

If you would like to, please reply to this post saying so. If no one does in the next day or so, I will post a couple of preliminary questions about how people want to play, and then I'll post up a questionnaire to start assigning swap partners.

Yay pretty stitch markers!


PS Thanks for the link and thanks artlady for the lovely tutorial!!
