I reserve the right to refuse any member who has bad communication and/or late send-outs for previous swaps! 

DETAILS OF SWAP:

This is an ongoing swap, but you only sign up for the months that you want to participate. 

For this round, you will knit, crochet, or loom 4 8" granny squares for one partner.  The squares can be made in any pattern, but MUST be made in your partner's color preference.  You MUST use only 4-ply acrylic worsted weight yarn (Wool, alpaca, etc is not acceptable).  Just think.....it would not be good to have a mixture of wool and acrylic squares for your friendshipghan since wool is not machine washable:)) 

The lovely Kookaloo_Starr pointed out that, in some countries, yarn weight is not labeled. Worsted weight yarn is classified as 12 wpi (wraps per inch). To find this, wrap the yarn snugly around a ruler. In a one inch span, you should wrap the yarn around 12 times.  Worsted weight yarn usually says to use an I-9 (US) hook, which is a 5.5 mm hook. This is typically the yarn used to make amigurumi. It's the typical Red Heart or Caron brand yarn.

All squares MUST be mailed no later than 3/31.

SWAP RULES:

1. You MUST put Friendshipghan R11 in all of your PM's.
2. Once partners have been assigned, you MUST post to this thread atleast once
a week.
3. You MUST provide a DC# if you and your partner both live in the USA.  If you live in another country you MUST keep the receipt and provide a copy to your partner and me if requested.
4. You MUST PM me when you send & receive. COMMUNICATION is the key:))  If you see that you're going to be late sending, you MUST PM both me and your partner and let us know what's going on.  We all understand that life does happen and sometimes things come up that are out of our control.  If an emergency arises that will prevent you from sending your squares on time, just keep in touch and let us know what's going on and everything will be just fine:))
5. You MUST post pictures of the squares you receive from your partner in the swap gallery.  If you will not be able to post pics, you need to make arrangements with your partner to post pics for you so we can all see the beautiful squares that everyone receives:))
6. If you have participated in previous rounds, your squares for those rounds must be sent before you sign up for the next round. They don't have to have been received by your partner yet, but you must have sent.

If you want to participate you must PM the following information to the organizer.  PLEASE....PLEASE... .PLEASE....for your protection and privacy DO NOT post this information to the thread.

New this round... possible multiple partners
Last round, I received a couple requests for having multiple partners. For this round, there is a question added to the questionnaire to that effect. However, there are some ground rules about this. First of all, it is not a guarantee. It may just not work out organizationally with allergies, country-availability and the like to have two partners. Secondly, you must be in at least your second round of this swap to have two partners.

QUESTIONNAIRE TO ANSWER:

Name of Swap: Friendship Granny Square Swap R11 (Mar)

Do you plan on knitting, crocheting or looming your granny squares?

What color(s) do you want for your squares?
Do you or anyone in your home smoke?

Do you have any pets?
Would you like to have one or two partners? If you would like two, you understand that this is not a guarantee, and verify that you have participated in at least one round of this swap previously?
What other information about yourself would you like to share with your partner?

Also remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find out how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap.

Well I finally shipped my R10 squares.  Now I have to decide if I have time for another round right away or if I need a month off.  Hmmm.....

I'm in Smiley

And I've got enough squares for one small (5 squares x 6 squares) afghan, so I'm asking for new colors this round, which is probably only exciting to me Tongue
