I think it would probably be ok, but I would suggest asking your swap partner after you get matched up.  I know, for example, that I already have 3 pairs of US 8 needles - I don't know what I would do with another one.

So far only one person, vaguelyvouge, has officially signed up.  However, my answer would be yes.  I think it should still be fun for however many people do participate.   There is still a full week left to sign up, too.  So hopefully, we will attract some more people.

Thanks to everybody for participating in this fun yarny swap!

I think by now everybody should have gotten their packages.  I hope you were all as excited about what you got as I was!  I also had a great time shopping for somebody else.  Great process overall.

In fact, the only person who seemed more excited about what I got in the mail than me was my mom!  She saw some of the yarn, and insisted I make her a scarf out of it.  The goofy expression on her face in the picture is, I'm sure, her way of saying "Thank you, TigerEyes!"


Anyway, good knitting to you all.  Perhaps I will see you craftsters on another swap!
