Details of swap:
The goal of this swap is for each swapper to collect 11 knit or crochet squares from different craftsters so that they can make a blanket from them. (You will need to make a square for yourself too!) Every week (on Friday) you will be sending two squares to two different people. At the end of the six weeks every one will have sent to everyone else once and will have 11 squares to add to their own and make a 3x4 blanket (or several pillows or whatever).
This swap is a six week commitment. Please consider carefully if you have the time and money to take this on. You MUST show a proof of shipping (DC, receipt, partner receiving) before your next weeks partner will be able to ship to you. This is to prevent one person from flaking but still receiving several squares. You must also be willing to ship to any country.
The Squares: Your square must be 12x12 inches. You will choose one colour for your blanket so all the squares would be the same colour, just different shades. Please follow the other yarn-specific requests of each swapper for their square. Please try to be creative. No squares of just garter stitch of half double crochet. This is a great time to try new patterns and play.
