Swap name: A Very Dishalicious Dishcloth/Washcloth Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: Elphalba (aka Elphie :-)
Sign-up date range:2/16-2/23
Date to send item by:3/16

Limited to a certain number of people?: Yes 30 people

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? NO
If so, which country?

All ages allowed? 18 and up only please.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES. Already have one lined up! :-)

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap: You can sign up to make either one dishcloth/washcloth to send to a partner or can sign up to send 2 washcloth/dishcloths to the samepartner. Dishcloths must be made with cotton- washcloths with cotton or I've even seen a flower one done with chenile. Peaches and Cream runs about 1.29 a ball at Wally World, Sugar & Cream runs around 1.50 a ball at Micheals or you can buy the larger balls at Joanns for 1.99. You can also by all cotton at your local yarn store. Debbie Bliss, and Jaeger "Aqua" are also spiffy cotton yarns that come in a wide range of colors if you want to go that route.( My LYS just ran a 40% off clearance on theirs so I stocked up! Whoo hoo! lol
One note: variated yarns do not tend to show pattern designs too well. Please keep that in mind when choosing your yarn.
All cloths need to have some sort of pattern-whatever you choose. Please do not do plain garter stitch. This swap is a perfect way for practicing new stitch patterns. Get as crazy as you'd like! Grin

When you have mailed PLEASE be sure to send me your Delivery Confirmation number. I will be noting communication in feedback- so please communicate with me if something arises and you will not be abe to mail out on time. This should be a quick swap and everyone should have plenty of time to get them in the mail on the mail out date I hope  Wink.
Please post pictures in a timely manner so that everyone may admire all the cool designs I'm sure you'll all make! Grin
Also it is a requirement for this swap that you contact your partner & myself upon receiving.

This post reserved for future updates! :-)
-Elphie

**update 2/23**
I understand the concerns about our packages not meeting the requirements to ship with delivery confirmation- but for the most part everyone is sending 2 dishcloths and I think folded up they should measure at least 3/4 of an inch thick with the packaging. Later if it seems that is not the case I will lift the DC# requirement and just ask for people to scan or send me your receipts. How does that sound? Grin

Also kahluakiggy was correct about the requirements to send something with delivery confirmation- it can also be used with first class as long as it is 3/4 inch thick, there is room for the address, postage, and delivery confirmation label.


Pairing up of partners will be done after everyone has signed up.

Question: So, these all have to be knitted or crocheted? It can't be embroidered or embellished?

What about linen? I know it says cotton in the sign-ups but I have some patterns that use linen...not that it has to be linen, but I think it might be fun to try something new.
Linen is fine :-) Ya all know what whould be good for making washcloths. I trust ya. lol Grin
