I'm sending you a pm today. I want in! Do you think it's okay to share the non-private, swap specific parts of the questionnaires? I'm curious how other spinners answer these questions. No biggie though.

Thanks so much for organizing this!

I so want in in this, but I'm pretty much a newbie at spinning, and I wouldn't want to disappoint anyone who is a super expert or anything. Will you be matching up skill levels?

Actually, I was thinking of matching up wants and skills.  I looove bumpy handspun yarn, but have trouble spinning anything bulky or thick the way beginners do.  So, I figured I'd partner up people that way.  Maybe I should put that on the list - whether or not the person wants a new or intermediate or experienced spinner for their partner?

I'm In. ii figure I'm probably my own worst critic anyways, besides I'm just dying to play with other people's handspun!

See, we hate our own mistakes but love other people's "funky" yarns. I loooove other people's handspun.  Everyone does, I think Wink

Oh, and six swappers so far!

i THINK i'll be able to do it ... i'm signing the lease for my new apartment this weekend, then moving all of my large things the LAST week of this month, but maybe in that week in between i'll have some time to dye and card. i really want to because i was one of THOSE people who kept wanting a handspun swap   Wink

i'll probably sign up at the last minute.
