How many kits have people made in the past for one swap?

I did three the first time I was in a kit swap, but I found that was a bit much for me.  Got them all done on time, but it was a little stressful and a bit expensive...I didn't know about flat rate boxes at the time for my US package.  I find that two kits are more fun for me to put together.  However, I still consider three when I'm filling out my questionnaire.  Grin

If you're just wondering how many kits are made in general, there's a lot.  Several of them I didn't even have interest in until I saw the kits posted in the swap gallery, and some I just didn't even know about.  Even if you just sign up for one kit, you'll come out of this with a load of inspiration.

halfelvenwriter is absolutely right!  Go back and look at the other rounds to see all the kinds of kits made.  It was amazing!

I learned to do reversible headbands and chain maille jewelry.  I've used my new skills a lot!

I did 3 kits last time too and that was a bit much in the end for me.  I think I might stick with 2 unless it's something that people really really want.

Is there a list with who has signed up and kits being suggested/wanted?  I want to expand my offered kits up so if I see something I am really good at that someone wants to learn to do I will gladly add it to my list!

I pm'd in as well.
Gavagai - I looked at your list and I am totally unable to make any of the things you want - I think we think alike since a lot of what you want to make is on my dream learning list too!

Sevs - thanks for the listings!  I am going to think of more things that I know I am good at and try to offer up some other things as well!
