I reserve the right to refuse any member who has bad communication and/or late send-outs for previous swaps! If you participated in R4, as long as you tell me that your squares for that round are in the mail, I will allow you to go ahead and participate in R5:)) But, if your partner for R4 has not received your R4 squares by 9/30/08, you WILL NOT be allowed to sign up for any future rounds until your squares for all previous rounds have been received.
DETAILS OF SWAP:
This is an ongoing swap, but you only sign up for the months that you want to participate. Signups for each round will begin on or near the 25th of each month and partners will be assigned on the 10th of the following month.
For this round, you will knit, crochet or loom 4 8" granny squares for one partner. The squares can be made in any pattern, but MUST be made in your partner's color preference. You MUST use only 4-ply worsted weight yarn (Wool, alpaca, etc is not acceptable). Just think.....it would not be good to have a mixture of wool and acrylic squares for your friendship ghan since wool is not machine washable:)) All squares MUST be mailed no later than 9/30.SWAP RULES:
1. You MUST put FRIENDSHIP GRANNY SQUARE SWAP R3 in all of your PM's.
2. Once partners have been assigned, you MUST post to this thread atleast once
3. You MUST provide a DC# if you and your partner both live in the USA. If you live in another country you MUST keep the receipt and provide a copy to your partner and me if requested.
4. You MUST PM me when you send & receive. COMMUNICATION is the key:)) If you see that you're going to be late sending, you MUST PM both me and your partner and let us know what's going on. We all understand that life does happen and sometimes things come up that are out of our control. If an emergency arises that will prevent you from sending your squares on time, just keep in touch and let us know what's going on and everything will be just fine:))
5. You MUST post pictures of the squares you receive from your partner in the swap gallery. If you will not be able to post pics, you need to make arrangements with your partner to post pics for you so we can all see the beautiful squares that everyone receives:))
