Summer Swappers (Swappers & Swappees Assigned)
We are starting a new Yarn Swap!!! Yay!!!


Please copy and paste this questionaire into an email and send to me at snephenie@gmail. Put YARN SWAP in the subject line please.

We will take sign ups until WED May 23rd. I will try to get everyone their partners by Friday the 26th.

We will be doing a TWO part swap. With the first package being YARN, I think a good date to mail this would be July 1st. That gives us a little over a month to get the package out.

Part Two will be either a knitted object (I think we should keep this simple as we are all at different levels in our knitting abilities) -OR- knitting related goodies. This should go out August 1st.

Here is to a fun filled summer filled with knitting, yarn and as always here on KH good friends!!!

If anyone has any proplems please PM or email me and do not post them here.

If anyone has any suggestions for changes feel free to let me know...I'm open.

I want in! I can't send a PM at the moment though.

I'm in, but can't find the pm button. I'm probably being dense... but where is it now? Thanks!!

If you click on the person's name it brings up a box of available things and one of them is send a PM.

Mary - if you click the user's name over their avatar you'll get the option to send them a PM ;)

I'm so in! I really love the ideas of a 2 part swap and I think it will be fun to knit something.

Thanks so much Snephanie for coordinating this.

Are we going tohave categories for the cost of yarn we want to swap like we did this last time???? I think that worked out great so no one felt obligated to spend more than they wanted to.

sounds great. i think would like to join in too. we should have the guidelines written out first. price ranges for the yarn, and a range for the knitted item too. a questionaire, and deadlines for each portion of the swap :)

thanks to both for the quick reply!!! (I AM a little dense today...)

at the risk of repeating myself, I worry my skillz don't meet the level of so many here. maybe a category for new knitters along with the cost/preferences? I'd hate for someone to send me something so beautiful that i"d be embarassed to send something of my own... Or maybe a theme for the knitted item to make in part II?

anyways... thanks again- off to try the pm...
