Winter is coming! What we all need on these darkening evenings is a nice hot cuppa and some snuggly socks.
Here's the deal: Send enough sock yarn for your pal to make a pair of socks, and their favourite hot drink (tea, coffee, hot chocolate).
IMPORTANT: YOU MUST SEND YOUR QUESTIONNAIRE ANSWERS TO ME AS SOON AS YOU SIGN-UP. IF I DO NOT RECEIVE YOUR ANSWERS BY 10PM BST, 1ST OCTOBER I WILL HAVE TO BAN YOU FROM THE SWAP.(Read on for more information)
ALSO, I AM AFRAID I CANNOT ACCEPT PARTICIPANTS WITH BAD FEEDBACK.
Sign-up closes 1st October, and packages should be mailed by 21st October.
I have set up a blog so that I can post updates and show off your packages! The address is: http://hot-socks-swap.blogspot.com/
Q: Who can join?
A: Anyone! I welcome international swaps - it is a great chance to get to know someone from far away (and to get yarn that you can't buy over here!!!)
Q: How much yarn should I send?
A: Please take the time to check the yardage and ensure it is enough to make an average sized adult pair of socks (around 400m/435 yards).
Q: How will I know who my pal is?
A: After sign-up closes Swap-bot will e-mail you asking for you to log in and view your pal's name and address.
Q: How will I know what hot drink my pal prefers?
A: Please fill in the questionnaire at the bottom and e-mail to me. I will then send you the answers from your pal after sign-up closes.
Q: What happens if I can't send my package by 21st October?
A: Please do not sign up unless you can commit to this deadline. That said, I will completely understand if life gets in the way and you need a bit of extra time. Just drop me and your pal an e-mail as soon as possible!
Q: How much should I spend on my pal?
A: This is down to you. However, I would suggest a minimum spend of Â£15 ($28 USD) NOT including postage.
Fill in your answers and send to swapATindieknitsDOTcom before sign up closes on 1st October:
1)What do you prefer - solid, variegated or self striping?
3)Are you a beginner, intermediate or experienced sock knitter?
4)Tea, Coffee, or hot chocolate - what's your favourite? If coffee, what do you use to make it?
5)Do you have a fibre preference? (i.e. Are you a yarn snob like me?)
If you have any other questions please click on the contact link or e-mail me at swapATindieknitsDOTcom.
And last but not least, ENJOY!
