Do you knit/crochet with your own yarn or do you send two skeins and get back a finished item made out of one of your skeins?
That was the original idea wasn't it?

It might be a good idea to link to some dying tutorials... I'm sure there are more novices than me who might be interested in this. I'm a knitter, but I've only dyed finished items.

is this like the homespun/handcrafted swap where a spinner is paired up with a knitter/crocheter or do you have to know how to spin to join?
