For this swap we will do 1 large 1 Medium and 2 smalls however I strongly recommend partners discuss between themselves maybe you would like 5 large......it is up to you whatever you are comfortable with. Partners please let me know if you are changing the guidelines so I can make note.

You are required to PM a valid tracking or Delivery Confirmation # to your partner and organizers when you send.

You MUST post photos of the items you received in the swap gallery.  Everybody loves seeing photos of all the goodies and your partner deserves recognition for the time and effort they spent crafting for you. 

You are required to post in the swap thread at least once a week.   It would be fun for everyone to post a picture of the room their partner is crafting for.   If you dont post one in the thread please send your partner a picture of the room!  It will make it much easier on your partner and will help ensure that you receive something that is crafted to match your rooms existing dcor.

I will think about this one!

I would love to make someone an afghan or something like that, but that would be more than a large would be, more an extra large or an extra extra large if I do one that is king size, so can that be considered as a really big item and then make smaller things to go with it? Would anyone consider that good?

What I would most want is a quilt, or a whole lot of large tote bags for putting yarn and fabrics in - so would be flexible for my partner if the mod is OK with this idea?

I might do this swap but hopefully my partner would not mind getting medium and small knitted items. Making large items will take me forever to make. I am planning on sending out stuff from two other swaps this weekend. Once done, I will sign up.  Grin
