LOL! Socks and felting scare me too

Maybe I should put myself out of my misery and make felted socks. Is that even possible?

I just signed up, I was in the last one and it was fun.

I am also a new knitter so the option to send a knitting goodie or a knitted item on the 2nd part of the swap is a great idea, no pressure.

Anyone who gets a project that is not super-advanced will still be very happy and know that they have one of the first works from a beginning knitter! We would all be very happy to get something that has taken thought and effort regardless of how many hours or what skill level were required. But as someone said, felted items hide mistakes if you are worried about that. And you can send something else. But anyone will be appreciative no matter what, in fact if you are a beginner we know that the item took even more effort than if it came from an old hand! and it's nice to knit for other knitters! Also once you know who you are sending to you can look at what they post and see whether they knit extra-complicated stuff that makes you nervous to send FOs to them or not. It really is the thought that counts in this.

I'm so excited, this is going to be such fun! I've been in the last 2 swaps and have had a blast! Had wonderful swap pals both giving and receiving! I love the idea of the 2nd month being something knit or knitty goodies....I've not yet decided if I'm knitting or buying knitty goodies, depends upon my partner, if he/she likes alot of knitty goodness (books, bags, like me...vintage knitting things, etc) then I'll do knitty goodies for certain. If he/she doesn't say one way or another...I still don't know...it will remain a surprise, surprise!!!

Several of you know that I've started collecting vintage yarn holders, I thought I'd let ya'll know that you can find all sorts of cool vintage knitting things like that on Ebay. I usually search for this: (bex, bakelite) (wool, yarn, string) holder to get a nice selection. Then there are vintage knitting gauges, knitting boxes, etc...lots of cool things to be found. Perhaps a good idea for your swap partner :happydancing:

Socks scare me, but it might also be that I very rarely ever wear socks AND I have large feet....so the thought of spending that much time on such small needles....I don't know...Maybe if I found a child sized pattern My daughter would certainly love them.


Just so everyone knows....I was at a wedding all day yesterday so I'll get to the new emails and add names by tonight!!

I've added everyone that I've recieved so far.

There are a few who have mentioned getting bounce back messages. If for any reason you can't email me, just either PM the questionaire or email it through the forum.

thanks!! I'm so glad to see so many people signing up!!
