I'm in.

I have a question though....

What happens if you start a block technique that someone isn't ready for or hasn't the tools for? Is it okay to work another block instead?

I don't do well learning too much at once, and although learning 1 new technique a month may not seem like much it can be the point of putting me over the edge, which takes the fun out of knitting.

Hi everybody! To answer a few questions: I sort of had in my mind
to do the swap at the end of the year so it is just one swap that needs
to be organized but that is just what I was thinking....it is open for
suggestions. I am probably going to do like Karina and knit more than
one block each month so I can keep one and swap one!

Sunny_Singer, there is no pressure for anyone to do anything they
don't feel up for. Any blocks are welcome to the swap, it was just
suggested that we use the KAL as a way for people to learn some
new techniques with support!

Oh just as a reminder to everyone if you plan to participate in the swap you might want to make a few blocks that are friendly for our wool allergic pals.

Thanks gargoylelib.

I learn a lot slower per new technique, etc, than the average person overall. I always have, not just knitting but anything new.

On the positive side, once I learn something, I learn it for life LOL.

I am guessing at my current rate, it is going to take me about 18 months to figure out dpns and I started that project in November.

Good Afternoon! Well, I finish one block using yarn a friend send the last swap and i love it. Now i'm surfing the internet to get some more. I use a skein for a 12 inch block. This blosk is a regular one, plain stockinette with a border as gargoylelib suggested.
Wait! Pauline you joined!! Is there an online place where i can get that merino dk debbie bliss you send me??? I just love that stuff!!! Any suggestions? I've found only a place in the USA.
I'm off now, have a nice knitting day! Will post pictures in a couple of days. (I'm thinking on sewing something on top of the block....)

Wow, Sig! You were fast in getting a block done I haven't
even started yet...trying to finish up dd's StarskyJr and a
Branching Out scarf that has to be done ASAP. Guess I better
not wait too long though or the month will be gone before I
know it!

Good morning!
It wasn't really that fast, it is just that I've been at home sick for 4 days, and you know, knitting always helps! Also, i manage to knit and read!

How do you do this in two colors? The pattern doesn't mention it. Are you carring yarn? Hmm.
I might just do it with a variegated yarn.
