Description:

This swap is for those of us who just can't get enough yarn! This month's color is GREEN.

It's very important that this be a good experience for everyone involved!! If you are new to Swap-Bot please contact me. If you have a rating of 4 or below I'm sorry, but this swap is not for you.

This will be a monthly swap. Each month a color of yarn will be assigned and you will send that specific color of yarn to your assigned partner. By the end of 12 months you will have a whole year's worth of colors! You must sign up each month to participate.

Requirements: $20.00 YARN minimum please. NO cheap acrylics! Natural fibers or natural blends only please. Any shade of this month's color is fine as is a blend with this month's color as the main color. GET CREATIVE!!! Send a unique yarn or blend that you think your partner might enjoy!!

You're more than welcome to send along a favorite pattern or some other little "goody" if you'd like but it is not required and should not be expected. Again, please make sure the yarn is at least worth $20.00. Handspun/dyed yarns are great, but please make sure you send at least what you would consider $20.00 worth and include a label with the yarn describing the content and care. Absolutely no used or partial skeins of yarn please!

This is an international swap.

Remember for those of us in the US, the fourth of July falls right before the closing date. That will without a doubt cause delays in shipping especially for those of us who have to order our yarn online.

kerryknits 06/ 3/2007 #

Thanks for the reminder Windchimes! :-)

Also, if you are matched with an international pal please be sure to either mail your package via airmail or mail it at the beginning of the swap so your pal has it near the end of the exchange. Nobody should have to wait for weeks after the swap has ended to receive their yarn.

I hope everyone has a great time! Please let me know if there's anything at all I can do to make this a great experience!

I'm in to green right now in a big way. My water bottle is even lime green. I love any of the spring, lime, kiwi type greens and even olive. I don't care too much for grass green or kelly green however. Looking forward to this.

I'm loving green as well! I'd love getting sock yarn that is green in some way. Just not BRIGHT green! ;-)

Wow, I have to say my partner is very quick indeed. My parcel of lovely green yarn and some green stitch markers arrived yesterday. My favourite colour is green, so this swap was certainly meant for me, and the shades my partner chose is great. Thanks heaps Heather P, I love what you chose for me.

I have tried to upload a photo of the yarns I received from Heather P, but if it uploaded I don't know where to. Does anyone have any ideas? Sue H.

Qwarkus,

If you go to the yellow box at the top of the comment section here the last option under the "As a member of this swap..." heading allows you to upload your photos. :-)

Hope this helps! I'd love to see some pics of all the goodies you're all getting!

Qwarkus,

It just occured to me that I didn't answer your question. I think. LOL If you click the "Launch gallery slideshow" above the pic of the green yarn it will open a window to show all the photos uploaded. :-)

ShellyO your yarn went in the mail today. I hope you love it!

knitster 06/19/2007 #

I got the best package from my partner romelda. She sent beautiful yarn and lots of extra stuff too and had it all wrapped in a pretty package. You really made my last swap special. Thanks! I will be dropping off of the swapping scene for awhile. I am planning a wedding that will be in August, and I am also having a baby in February, so I won't be doing any swapping for awhile. I'll miss you guys!

arcticgirl64 06/20/2007 #

missthg your packet was sent today. Please post when recieved.

kerryknits 06/20/2007 #

AmyandPaul - Congrats on the baby!!! We'll miss you but totally understand your need to take some time off. :-) Best wishes for the future! Hope to see you back some day soon.

befana 06/23/2007 #

this message is for my secret swap-bot partner...thank you for the Ecards that you sent me this month.

They are fun to get and really have built up the mystery of who you are. I can't wait to get my package of green goodies. Thanks for making this swap such fun. Mary T.

arcticgirl64 07/ 7/2007 #

Today I rec 4 skeins of Alpaca yarn from Nan B. Thanks a lot. I love it. :)

user8542 07/12/2007 #

Boy did I get a great box! Cloudspun yarn, the 'green' issue of knit1 and a card with a green yarn comic on the front--can it get any better than this?

kerryknits 07/13/2007 #

Has everyone received their packages?

kerryknits 07/14/2007 #

I received 10 balls of Knitpicks Shine worsted in grass today from Amanda and can't wait to get working on it. It's perfect for a cabled sweater I've been wanting to start for my youngest daughter. Thanks Amanda!

arcticgirl64 07/26/2007 #
