Description:

This swap is due in part to some messages I've received from people I've had to ban (because they didn't meet the swap requirements) from the other dishcloth swaps I'm hosting - and believe me, I've really felt bad over each person I've banned!

EVERYONE WELCOME - as long as you can knit or crochet! :)

Each of you will make 2 dishcloths, and send 1 dishcloth to 2 people, thus bettering your chances for more good ratings.

Sender's choice of colors on the dishcloths, though if there is a color you absolutely cannot abide, post it below in the comment section.

Each dishcloth should be a minimum of 7 inches (17.5 cm) across and in length as well. Any shape is acceptable (apple, square, acorn, pear, hat, etc. -- whatever is your favorite at the moment, use it). Pattern is sender's choice. If you don't have a favorite pattern, the free pattern directory at www.crochetpatterncentral.com is marvelous, as is www.knittingpatterncentral.com!

You do not have to wait for partners to be assigned, you can get to work on making your dishcloths now!

Lowest rating accepted is 3.00, and unrated newbies are welcome. Please Do Not Flake!! Names of flakers will be posted in the Swap-bot Flakers group!

Swap closes on April 18th, please send your dishcloths to your partners by May 4th. If you've not received your dishcloth(s) by June 15th, please contact me and I will arrange an angel for you.

International Swap.

Thanks so much for the invite. I appreciate your thoughtfulness. Will give a nice heart for the effort.

if mine could be square that would be awesome:D

FabricsandFlowers 03/20/2012 #

@ChantalB square is fine. Like swap description says, pattern is up to swapper, just needs to be at least 7 inches (or bigger) across.

ATTENTION ALL SWAPPERS I adjusted the dates forward a bit because I dislocated my shoulder yesterday and I'm in a lot of pain. Plus I'm just not able to do much right now. So the swap will happen, I just need a bit more time to heal and get dishcloths made.

I might be able to angel 1 or 2 if needed.

Momskii 04/11/2012 #

I will be able to angel one if needed. No flakers, please

if you need help with angeling let me know I am on strict diet ( heart issues) and I knit cloths to keep from snacking!!!:) love hand made cloths

FabricsandFlowers 04/12/2012 #

@qofscrap I love how knitting keeps you from snacking!

@gypsyinthecastle @Momskii and @qofscrap thank you all for your offers for angeling. I may yet take you up on them.

It's your swap, so of course you set the rules, but I want to make sure you understand that a 3.0 rating means that the participant has failed to send half of the swaps they've participated in. It's very risky to let in a swapper with a 3.0 rating.

FabricsandFlowers 04/16/2012 #

The point of the swap is to let in anyone, especially those with poor ratings. However, good point and thanks for pointing that out.

If at all possible please no yellow cloths for me. I can't stand it.....

CbFlynn 04/19/2012 #

I crocheted, and mailed mine out today... It was a very relaxing love trying out new patterns.

valreinking 05/ 4/2012 #
