I reserve the right to refuse any member who has bad communication and/or late send-outs for previous swaps! 

DETAILS OF SWAP:

This is an ongoing swap, but you only sign up for the months that you want to participate. 

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 acrylic 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:)) 

The lovely Kookaloo_Starr pointed out that, in some countries, yarn weight is not labeled. Worsted weight yarn is classified as 12 wpi (wraps per inch). To find this, wrap the yarn snugly around a ruler. In a one inch span, you should wrap the yarn around 12 times.  Worsted weight yarn usually says to use an I-9 (US) hook, which is a 5.5 mm hook. This is typically the yarn used to make amigurumi. It's the typical Red Heart or Caron brand yarn.
All squares MUST be mailed no later than 12/31.

SWAP RULES:

1. You MUST put Friendshipghan R8 in all of your PM's.
2. Once partners have been assigned, you MUST post to this thread atleast once
a week.
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:))

If you want to participate you must PM the following information to the organizer.  PLEASE....PLEASE... .PLEASE....for your protection and privacy DO NOT post this information to the thread.

Although I REALLY want to participate in this round, I am in a couple of other big swaps, and if I signed up for this one then my partner would be cheated out of beautiful granny squares because I would have to rush them...
So I will sit out until Janurary lol

I'm out of swap spots, so I guess I'll be sitting this one out unless something opens up sooner than I expect. 

The mail moves in mysterious ways...

Yeah, its like that here in Sweden, so it is always a problem if I want to do anything else then a amigurumi or some other toy that dont really need a gauge...
But I will take a look at my yarn I have at home and go down to my yarn-shop and see if they have anything good to use! *cross my fingers*

Thanks for the wpi-thing! Cheesy
