There is still time!

What negative have you heard? I've only heard good/fun things about it.
Oh the only negative thing I heard was some people from the
Yahoo group complaining that they never got any socks. I
guess with the way it is tiered if you ahve someone flake out
then it starts causing problems down the line. I hate to discourage anyone from trying it though, it is just something that caused second
thoughts for me, but as with any swap-type event you always risk
having someone not fulfill their end. I have heard that they have
back up knitters this year just in case this happens so it shouldn't be a problem.
