extras in stash swap????
I saw this in another thread:

Maybe this is something we could do here? the only downfall I see is that while beads aresmall and light, a box on leftover yarn balls has the potential for getting expensive to mail.... hmm, never mind. good idea in theory, i suppose
and I thought, that's not a bad idea. Some wools/cottons/etc may not weight too much and if we're just sending our one or two skeins of scrap and leftovers then maybe even lighter. Whaddaya'll think?

I think it'd be cool, but I sense a problem. I would keep all the yarn, hence ending the cycle

You're having visions of spreading the yarn all over the floor & ROLLING in it, aren't you, Beldie?

Well, how it worked when I did it before was that for each thing you took out of the box, you'd have to put something from your own stash to replenish. So as much as Beldie wants to be a yarn hog, she can't do it!

Umm, our dependable mail system lost it?

Hildegard, who ever said I was good at following the rules?! Silly girl.

Kelly, sounds like fun. Want to come over and play with me?

Sure! We can wear pink shorty pajamas, pigtails in our hair, have a pillow fight while jumping on the bed and then roll in yarn! We'll be every man's fantasy! :rollseyes:

To add to the fantasy part, KK, not necessarily to chain you up!
