How many items are we talking? This sounds great but I don't know how much I can afford.

I'd love to join, but i don't know if I'd be able to knit theat much stuff. Does it all have to be knitted or can it be, like say a knitting roll-up and some cute stitch markers, or hand dyed yarn etc etc.. Grin

I would love to join but I am a novice knitter.....still having trouble with patterns.  My mother said I was right handed but knitted like left handed, something to do with twisting stitches.  I don't know but I keep trying.  I can only do the simplest things at this time: face cloths, pot holders, scrafs for neck and head.  I am going to try these head bands I have seen here:

Wish me luck...I plan to start after I finish a couple other project.

ha! yeah, I think Superhooker must have been joking with the "Are you interested in receiving yarn?" part of the questionnaire. Grin

My impression of the swap was that we are not really knitting for each other, but making and sending things that relate to knitting....is that correct?
