Well, my friend, it's time you took part in a yarn swap! Ever since FaveCrafts hosted its first Valentine's Day Card Swap, I've been dying to get us knitters in on the fun!
If you've never heard of swapping before, here's what it's all about: Everyone who participates is assigned a partner (or two, or three--for this swap, you will be assigned 2 partners). Then every swap participant makes/buys/procures the item to be swapped.

Swaps are a fun way to facilitate a sense of community among fellow knitters. Plus, who doesn't love getting a package!? If you are looking for a fun way to get rid of some of your stash, and get some beautiful new yarn in return, this yarn swap is just what you need!
