Ok- I just had to steal the magic yarn ball swap idea and give it a new twist!
This swap is for spinners who's primary passion is spinning funky, unusual, wild and over the edge handspun art yarns.
As you all know, the idea is to wind up trinkets, treats and other cool stuff into a yarn ball and send it to your swap partner. For this swap we will be using our own unique handspun yarns. Try to include items that could potentially be spun into yarn along with sweets, cool stickers, charms, badges, buttons and other crafty little items. Use and stretch your imagination!
Since we all have different spinning styles please make sure that your yarn has enough yardage to be knit into at least a skinny scarf on large needles if its super bulky. Try and spin up around 60+ yards for this swap. If its a yard or two short don't worry- its all good!
I suggest you try and get to know your swap partner once they are assigned and tailor your handspun and goodies to make your magic yarn ball something they will flip for -ofcourse being the fiber fanatics that we are, it likely won't matter what the colors are if the texture and technique is something amazing.
