Swap name: Yarnies Scavenger Hunt Swap R3
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: mcook72677
Craftster member who is co-organizing this swap: open
Sign-up date range: 1/28 to 2/7

Date to send package by: March 16

Limited to a certain number of people? No.
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No.
All ages allowed? Yes, with parental or guardian's permission if under 18.

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:

This swap will be a scavenger hunt with categories each participant must interpret and fulfill with items relating to yarn and yarn crafts, then send to her or his partner.


Categories :

1. Something local
2. Something purple
3. Something recycled
4. Something hard
5. Something funny
6. Something related to the letter 'M'
7. Something dotted
8. Sender's choice

I'm going to leave the category definitions up to you and your own interpretations. You may discuss them, but, ultimately, your intuition should be your guide.

Rules:

The number of items sent and received should be no more and no less than the number of categories in the scavenger hunt. Exceptions are if the item representing a category is a pair or set of items, such as a pair of mittens or a set of stitch markers.

One item per category - no single item can do double-duty and count for two categories. However, if a particular item does work for two categories and having two of them would be pleasing to the recipient, then two may be sent. The exception to that would be if it's a pair of something where having only one of the pair would be useless. If it's a pair, the pair can only count for one category. For example, a pair of blue mittens cannot count for something blue and something that starts with the letter M. However, sending two blue mugs, one for the blue category and one for the letter M category, would be allowable.

The gift for at least one category must be a skein of yarn (quality, please, unless your partner says they love fun fur!).

Items can be bought or handmade. At least two categories should be handmade.

At least five of the eight categories must have items relating to yarn and yarn crafts. Other goodies are welcome, but the bulk of your package should be yarnie goodness.
 

Please PM your partner and the organizer when you send out your package and when you receive it.

You must post in the thread once a week until you have sent your package to your partner.

The size of your items will be up to you and your partner.  Thanks!!

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.
