i'm very interested, but i'm worried i won't be able to make 3 items! my crochet skills are decent, but i can't make mittens/gloves, just hats and scarves. i might be able to sew some fleece things, but i'm just not sure my skills are up to snuff! i'll think on it for sure though!!!

You don't have to just makes hats and scarves, though.  You can make a scoodie, a scarf with pockets, a muff (I think that's what they're called), a hot cocoa/tea/coffee kit, a quillow (throw with a pocket in it so it folds up into a pillow), rice neck/handwarmers...

hmmm, I may have to join this swap.

Also, you could always have the small item be something that you purchase & then personalize.  You really should join us.  It's going to be fun!!
