    Details of swap:
Welcome to the handspun yarn swap!

We'll be spinning yarn for each other and sharing the fruits of our labors.  This swap is open to beginning and experienced handspinners alike.  Everyone's yarn is beautiful!  I do ask that you don't swap your first yarn ... that should be kept so you can see how much you change as you learn.

Beginners are welcome!

For this swap, we'll swap
  • yarn created from spining 2 oz of fiber by your favorite method
  • 1 small crafted items (spinning related items, or something made out of handspun yarn)
  • 1 oz of your favorite fiber (can match the yarn or not)
  • 1 pattern of something to make with the yarn you sent
.

If you want to participate, information to send to ariaya:

Any colors or fibers that you don't want?
Do you prefer singles or plied yarn? (or no preference)

Yay!!! I will be signing up before the end date.  I just need feedback on one swap (which should happen in the next day or two) and I am just waiting for some more people to receive in the rapunzel swap before I give myself feedback.  So, very soon anyways.
