I just had a fab idea (at least I hope it is fab) for if we go with option A (which I am ok with, and now more so because of my idea Roll Eyes).  There is likely someone that will want to work with acrylic only.  They should be the person always sending to ArrghMatey.  If no one else but Jenicat and I want to use non acrylic yarn, I can always send to Jenicat.  Though some of the stuff is blended with acrylic.  Anyways, just ideas, I am totally open.

*is confused.*   Huh Maybe it's just late and I need to go to bed but how do you mean the only people sending to ArrghMatey? Everyone sends to everyone. Or do you mean it goes through the circle the same way? Haha, I'm so lost. *goes to bed and hopes this will make sense in the morning.*  Roll Eyes

A sends to B who sends to C who sends to D who sends to E....and so forth, so the same person is always sending to the same person, but each scarf goes through the circle of people.  If this doesn't make sense still, then I'll make a drawing and scan it which can better represent my idea.  Sorry, I didn't think it was confusing.  Hopefully you'll love me when you understand...hopefu lly.

Watch this confuse you more even though it is meant not to.  Here is my diagram using 5 of us (though there will be more of us, but this is just to give you an idea).



So basically all the scarves would go through everyone in the same order.  Whatever scarf comes my way I will send to Jenicat who will then send it to mochaxlight, etc.

Hoo, nelly, this is gonna be a beast to organize.  You gonna be okay, mochaxlight?

If you want to exchange phone numbers and talk it out, let me know, maybe I can communicate better that way (or maybe not, I don't know).  I'm not trying to take over, just trying to think of solutions.  I had wanted to take an organizational break for a couple of months or so, but if you need a co organizer, let me know.

I'm interested. A little confused, but interested.

Does this mean that we each work on 5 scarves (for example) and everybody ends up with 5?

No, we each end up with one scarf.  So say I start my scarf and work on 5 inches (it may be more inches per person).  I would then send it to Jenicat who would then add 5 more inches to it.  She would then send it to mochaxlight who would add another 5 inches. And so forth.  We all add to each others scarf until the circle is complete.  In the end we have a scarf made with different yarns and different patterns.

I just used 5 inches as an example.  I don't know what mochaxlight has in mind as to how many inches each person does.

Ok, I think I should shut up at the point. Roll Eyes Wink

I'll be okay organizing. I like organizing. GIMMIE THE POWER!!! Grin

Oooook, I see what you're saying myklia. That's a good idea, it means every two weeks I won't have to be pairing people up. I might do it that way, or the other way, where everyone gets to send to someone different. BUT now that I'm thinking and typing, I like that way. I'll just have to use a lil brain power.  Wink

Yes, ScotSkipper, myklia got it. Everyone will have a scarf, add their bit, then send it off every two weeks. You'll always have a scarf to work on. Everyone ends up with just 1 funky fabo scarf.

I'm getting everything together, but I want to ask ya'al if there's any concerns or questions about anything regarding this swap?! Let me know. I think I got everything down on the questionnaire, but I want to be positive. Thanks!  Kiss
