New Year 2008 Swap Has Finished.
Hello and welcome to the '2008 New year swap'! As suggested this swap is a 'Home Countries' swap in that people will be matched with people from the same country, e.g US with US, UK with UK and so on. Thus cutting postage costs and giving more to spend on yarn!

There are no limits to what you put in your package, if you want to make something go ahead. Found a perfect pattern your buddy would like? Put it in, just be guided by your partners tastes. The only thing it MUST DO is;

Contain Yarn! (Well duh! What's a swap without the yummy yarn goodness?!)

A Knitting Tool- This can be any item to use when your knitting. Stitch markers, cable needle, row counter? Is there something you can't live without in your kit and want to share? Tailor it for swap buddy.


Registration by 21st December

Partners given 27th December (just in time for those New Year sales!)

Package due by 31st January - If you need longer make sure your swap buddy knows, keep them informed.

Any questions pm or email me.


Questioner

1. Full name and screen name.

2. Postal address

3. Email address and preferred method of contact, email/pm

4. Price range, (Please chose or $) 10, 15 20 (this DOESN NOT include postage)

5. Any allergies? Petfree/ smoke free, what's your preference? Do you smoke or have pets?


6. Colour and fibre preference.


7. What do you like to knit?


8. Favorite knitting tool.

I would love to join. I live in England, but I also have an FPO AE box, so I can fit into either.

*blush* I'd love to join in. I'm relatively new to KH and this is my first KH swap, so I hope that's okay? I'm from the USA (^-^)

And are we allowed to add other things to the package aside from the requirements?

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.
