Baby, it's cold outside! We need winter items!

This swap involves making ONE hat (any type) and ONE PAIR of gloves (or mittens, any type) for your partner. I've been having dreams of long gloves, fingerless gloves, those cute mittens with the fold-over tops, animal face mittens (aaah, so cute)! There are so many possibilities for this swap.

Sign-ups will last until I am either overwhelmed by responses, or it is Halloween. Cheesy You will have a whole month to craft, which should be plenty of time.

*TEMPT TEMPT TEMPT* What can better than a swap with an organizer who isn't totally sane? ;-)

I have something to confess: I've never owned or worn a hat (not even as a little kid ~ my mom dislikes hats). So, you see, this swap is very important to my personal growth and well-being. Also, to the warmness of our collective craniums.

For just a few stitches a day, you can help keep a poor craftster's hands from becoming popsicles. No one can craft with popsicle hands, people.

this sounds super cute. i've knitted hats before and i've also done armwarmers (the kind with the thumbhole), but never gloves. are these kinds of armwarmers acceptable? i don't want to sign up unless i know i can knit what is required.

Sure, yellowblanket, if someone wants armwarmers. :-) That counts as "fingerless gloves" in my loosely-bound book!
