Details of swap:

This is Round 2 of the Granny’s Daughters Swap! If you don't know how to make a granny’s daughter, it's pretty easy!  A granny’s daughter is the first round of a traditional granny square.....that's it!  The pattern can be found HERE.  A child's afghan requires 240 motifs and an adult size afghan requires 720 motifs. As stated in the pattern, each motif should measure 1 1/2" to 1 3/4".  So it's important to check your gauge so that all motifs will be the correct size. 

You will send 40 motifs in assorted colors to 2 partners (for a total of 80).  This is a great project to use up those little bits & pieces of scrap yarn you have laying around.

All motifs MUST be made in 4-ply worsted weight yarn, or if you're in the UK the yarn equivalent will be 10-ply aran.  Please be sure to check your gauge to make sure your motifs are the correct size.  We wouldn't want to receive some motifs that are 1 1/2" and some that are 2 1/4". Your motifs should measure 1 1/2" to 1 3/4".  Size is important!!!   REMEMBER:  It only takes a few minutes to make one granny’s daughter. If you get started when you sign up, you’ll have the bulk of the work done by the time partners are assigned Wink

Weaving in the tails: The directions call for a 6" tail to be left at the end. Depending on their joining method, some folks might prefer to have that outside end woven in. There is a question on the questionnaire for you to express a preference. All starting tails must be woven in!

Positive feedback on this swap will be left once your partners have all received, and once you have posted pics of what you have received. You must remember to PM the organizer when you SEND and RECEIVE! Poor communication will be noted in your feedback if you do not. Thanks!

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

I have 57 made so far! But, since I'm making 120 (an extra 40 for me), I'm not quite half done... and then there's the ends to weave in...

I've found that it's an excellent craft to do while I'm talking on the phone... but I don't talk on the phone very often... and it's also an excellent craft to do while I'm waiting for something, which I seem to do very often... So, I should be done without any problems (and I probably just jinxed myself Wink ).

I do confess that I started when I was waiting for repair guys to show up at my house before Christmas. I was anxious and needed something to do to keep my hands busy, but something that I didn't have to think too much about. So, these were perfect Grin

I am so tempted by this. I just looked at the last round's gallery.....I shouldn't do that..... Undecided

Luckily I have a few weeks to think about....

I think I'm intimidated by the number 80 (and the fact I have numerous other things going on). How was doing 80, for those of you that did the first round?

Totally not a problem at all.  You can whip them anywhere they are so easy to do.  If you need to take a break from making dishcloths ( Wink), then whip up some of these.  It really goes pretty quick.  Believe me, I am busy as all get out right now, but I'm not worried about making my 80 and send outs are February 21st.  Very generous time.

It actually wasn't too bad to do 80. I was very nervous at the start of the last one, and ended up doing a last bunch at the last minute. This time, I'm doing a few at a time. I can do 6 in about 10 minutes or so. I'm making 6 of a bunch of colors, 2 each for my partners and 2 for me! They really do go pretty quickly. If you did 6 a day, you'd be done in about 2 weeks. But, since they're so quick, you could do more than 6 a day and be done even sooner! They're a good, quick, down-time project or a chill-out-before-bedtime project Wink
