For the knitted item: What kind of knitted items are we talking? Will there be a value on those items as well? I'm just trying to figure out what I could be getting myself into! My summers tend to be very busy!

I would think something simple and not too complex. A bag (booga perhaps)

I was thinking (before I decided to organize this) that there are some cute felted patterns out there that dont take too much work. A felted bowl, coasters etc...
Some face cloths & bath salts can be a quick, simple and inexpensive idea as well...

In another swap I was in with a different board someone made me felted sunglass case. I use it all the time.

I hardly doubt anyone is expecting to receive a sweater. I say, have FUN and keep it simple.

I threw this together but you certainly don't have to use it. I'm not even sure if this is actually what you were asking for.

Thanks for the ideas... I knew a sweater was more than called for, but that is all my brain thinks these days! I have a hard time thinking of smaller projects, although, I guess I haven't pattern searched either.

Perhaps I will join!

When I suggested the idea that we do a 2 part swap I just wanted it to be fun. I was in a swap last year that we knit something for the person we were sending to. I received a beautiful scarf and I also made a scarf for the person I sent to. The knitting part is just for fun - it should not have to be a big deal - a scarf, felted bag, some washcloths, anything.... something that you have fun knitting. No matter what it is I am sure the person who gets it will love it because of all the love that is in each stitch!

The swap was so much fun last time and that is what this is all about.

I am so looking forward to taking part in this. This site is great. I am now involved with an odd ball blanket, an odd ball shawl, and now this swap I am excited to be parts of these and I never would have if I hadn't found this site.
