Been going through your stash and find a skein or two and wonder what was I thinking?Or just have a couple of skeins left over and have no use for them?Then this is the swap for you!Maybe this is a good excuse for you to take inventory of what you have and see what you can part with.The point is to swap something from your stash and not buy anything new

This is an INTERNATIONAL swap.You will be assigned one partner.I cannot guarantee you will be assigned a partner from the same country.So if you have a preference do NOT sign up.Swap-bot is totally random!You MUST have a rating of at least 4 to participate,If you do not yet have a rating ,please contact me and we will work something out.Anyone with no sends on their rating will be banned from this swap.I want happy swappers!

So here are the details-Pick 2 skeins (at least 50 grams EACH its okay if they are bigger.But NO SMALLER than 50 grams EACH)from your stash.They can match or not.I would suggest contacting your partner to see if they have any allergies or such.It would be nice to include a pattern that you already have or is available on the internet.Or just let your partner decide what to use it for.

Please nothing dirty or mangled.Try to include the label or fiber content(if known)NO fun fur or cheap acrylics.Something nice like you would want to receive.

The point is to shop from your own stash and swap it for something from someone else\\'s stash. Knitters and crocheters welcome.Just check before you send any patterns. Any problems?Any Questions?Just let me know!Swap on!

Sounds Great, I have been trying to figure out what to do with some of my misc. yarn. Thanks for the swap. =) I like pretty much all types of yarn out there, except maybe fun fur. I am pretty allergic to wool blends. Nice 100% wools I tend to felt or use in something that I give away, but I am not crazy about wool blends.

Can't wait!

My first swap was the Valentine Swap and I don't know if she has rated me for not. Then I'm doing Favorite Color that doesn't have to be in untill March 7. So please let me know. I have a ton of stash and would love to give some of it away. thanks, Sharon

As long as someone doesn't come along and say anything negative about unrated swappers I am letting them in.I am trying to weed out those with no sends so everyone will have a great swap!

Hi, I have lots to choose from to share! The only thing I can't use is wool - even a blend. Other animal yarns like alpaca are fine or anything else!

Winnie 02/17/2007 #

Hi! A doubt: 2 skeins of 100 grms? = 200 grms? or 2 skeins of 50 grms =100 grs?

bethanne 02/18/2007 #

Sounds great! I love red and/or black especially and have no allergies!

cookiemonster07 02/19/2007 #

I am thinking at least 50 gram skeins.You can send bigger of you like but nothing smaller.I edited the info to reflect the change.Thanks for asking Winnie!

Looking forward to this one.

I am crazy about deep red and lime green, but probably not together. I love bulky, the bulkier the better. In reality, the only things I don't like are orange or synthetics. With that said, I promise to come up with orange, synthetic or most anything my swap partner prefers.

Stay warm!

pink/purple/blue/green..liking those colours quite a bit..no allergies, but lean toward cotton/acrylic blends because it's sooooo soft. With that said, I won't mind a complete surprise either.

indieknits 02/28/2007 #

I'm sorry but I've had to drop from this swap! Was looking forward to it but have other commitments this month. Maybe next time :)

No allergies. Like bright colors and interesting looking yarn.
