A swap for those of us who love knitting silly (yet adorable) things.
I recently started knitting Rebecca Danger's pug pattern (find her blog here: http://www.rebeccadanger.typepad.com/), and have been thinking of knitting a family of her Bunny Nuggets (free pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bunny-nuggets). The pattern is on the easy side, with only basic decreasing and knitting with dpns-- good practice if you're new to the craft and thinking about knitting your first pair of socks-- it's really not that hard!
My idea is that we can each knit one of these out of scrap yarn, and send it along with a note. It might be the story of the yarn (did you knit a sweater for your boyfriend, leg warmers for your pug or a pair of socks for your mum? What made you love the yarn?), the story of the bunny (is he a world traveler, a fashionista or perhaps a socialite?) a favourite quote, another cute knitting pattern or link, a love story or just a note of introduction.
Personally, I have so many odds and ends in my own stash that every time I reach into it, I am reminded of some neat project that I had otherwise forgotten. What a great opportunity to broaden the knitting community here on Swap Bot as well as use up some of our odds and ends.
I will be checking profiles prior to assigning partners-- please have a look at the pattern before you sign up to ensure that you are comfortable with the skill level that it requires. Newbies are welcome, but must have completed profiles. Otherwise, a 4.5 rating is required with no 1s or 3s in the past four months.
This will be a lot of fun, with more small project swaps to follow-- as always, please feel free to message me or comment below with any questions. Happy knitting!
