I love cotton yarn and dark chocolate. : )

I kept reading "yarn" as "yam" and I was raising my eyebrows at sending a yam in the mail ;)

icebyrd67 01/17/2010 #

will there be a max/min on the size of the skein?

chickendave 01/17/2010 #

I like bounty bars and natural fiber yarns

LisaLisa3 01/17/2010 #

I did not know how to word the max/min. I would hope that everyone would send what they would like to receive. Any suggestions??

Moineau 01/18/2010 #

I like natural fiber yarns, and any type of chocolate bars :)

ChelelosGirl 01/18/2010 #

I'm just learning to crochet, and I've always been a chocoholic so this sounds like fun - as for preferences - just surprise me!

gracielous 01/18/2010 #

I love natural fiber yarns but knit/crochet with all kinds and colors. Also would love to receive any chocolate bar but please no coffee flavor.

icebyrd67 01/18/2010 #

i'm up for anything. the only thing i don't like is fun-fur or the other novelty yarns like that. they make me itchy and my dog eats them. =/ as for chocolates, i like anything except really dark chocolate

beaukri 01/19/2010 #

Hello all! I love all yarn and chocolate so anything would be great....except dark chocolate please.

mistoff 01/19/2010 #

So I want to know who could tolerate unusual chocolate combination gourmet bars....Habenero chocolate and chili and chocolate???

Hi, in the UK yarn isn't sold in skeins. Are we talking 50g or 100g? or more?

OpheliaQuilts 01/22/2010 #

I just learned to knit, so I need YARN! I love it all. I've not yet grown to be too picky. :) The only thing I'm picky about is I like dark chocolate, I hate milk chocolate and white. It can have nuts or fruits.

LisaLisa3 01/23/2010 #

Rosiefsw - I looked at one of my skiens of cotton yarn and it is 85 grams. I don't know if that helps but I would say 85 grams would be fine. : )

LadyLocket 01/23/2010 #

I adore Dark chocolate, the bitter the better hehe also swiss chocolate. I have had Chill flavour Mistoff and its super yum.

As for the yarn, bulky/chunky or DK (double knit) in any colour apart from pastels - I'm not keen on them. Though any type of yarn will be fine also (apart from pom pom or fuffy yarn - really not my favourite).

zilliah 01/23/2010 #

I'd prefer white or milk chocolate, and I'd prefer to have the yarn have some wool/alpaca/animal content! My favourite colours are variegated green-blue-purple but I'm happy with most colours :)

So it should be more than a 50g ball? They tend to come in 50g or 100g balls.

cinderella730 01/25/2010 #

I LOVE natural fiber yarns... I love all colors!! there's ALWAYS something you can make out of ANY color!!! (but my faves are on my profile. lol) and either White Chocolate, or Dark Chocolate (maybe even with espresso beans, or flavor.. yummm)

so excited about this swap!!

renees 01/29/2010 #

FUN SWAP! I'm open to just about anything, but please none of the crazy novelty yarns or dark chocolate. Anything else is AWESOME! Yay!

ohpossum 01/30/2010 #

I use all kinds of yarns; wool, cotton, blends, even the silly ones... they make a festive top edge when you are felting a cat bed. I love all kinds of chocolates and I'm one of the weird ones that fell in love with the Lindt chocolate/cherry/chili bar.

rubyandme 01/31/2010 #

i prefer cotton yarn please, ** chocolate must be gluten free, thank you. if it's a challenge for you, plain milk chocolate is usually GF :)

nyflorac 01/31/2010 #

I have a boy now is 10 month. I am looking for yarn that can knit a hat for his big head. :D so please kindly give ma a boy color... Thank you!

kariberi 01/31/2010 #

I do quite a bit of amigurumi so worsted weight is fine by me!

paulavelosa 02/ 1/2010 #

I prefer wool yarn, and chocolate, I like them all!

xd0nn4x 02/ 1/2010 #

Please no white or dark chocolate, and as for the yarn, I don't knit and mostly make toys and such, so any worsted weight is good but I would love if you can send me an unusual color? I have a bunch of the typical red heart in the plain colors as that all we can get around here! I've never even used natural fibers so those would be nice to, but in the end as long as its not made just for knitting (fun fur, all that jazz) I'll be happy

LisaLisa3 02/ 1/2010 #

I am so excited with the response to this swap!! Thank you all. : )

nikkidear 02/ 1/2010 #

I'd prefer no dark chocolate or hershey's (they really went downhill after moving all their plants). I love all yarn except wool as it seems to turn my hands red.

theyankeehooker 02/ 1/2010 #

I love natural fiber yarns in natural tones! As for chocolate, I'd love some really good milk chocolate/peanut butter! For some reason, it's the only kind of chocolate I like :)

grethekristin 02/ 2/2010 #

I love natural fiber yarn any kind of colour and I love all kind of chocolate.

zilliah 02/18/2010 #
