Details of swap:

This is Round 3 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. Note: New for Round 3! If you would like only 1 partner or would like a 3rd partner (first-time swappers are limited to a maximum of 2 partners), make sure to indicate this in your questionnaire. If you would like a 3rd partner, it may depend on the number of folks who sign up.

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 and failure to post pics of what you received will be noted in your feedback if you do not. Thanks!

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

If I can miraculously finish knitting two scarves by the sign up end, then I'll join.  Not holding my breath on this, but it is always possible.  *must ask elociNNicole if she has figured out to knit in her sleep yet* Wink

Yay! I don't know why either, but I'm glad you did Wink

And myklia, you know that you'll need a little crochet break in between all of that knitting... You can even take the 1 partner option... come on... all of the cool kids are doing it Wink Grin  Just kidding! I'd love it if you could join in again, but I know you have a lot on your plate Tongue

so I've already shelled out 14 granny daughters! haha so fun.
I figure, I have finals this coming week and it would be great to halfway done by the end of it. Then, while I wait to pick up the man from his college I can do the other twenty. Then, hopefully, I will be able to send out as soon as I get partners. Sending only if they want random squares, of course. But if it wasn't what they wanted I would at least hope I got most of the colors they wanted. Unless they want all variegated, then I'd be screwed because I have absolutely variegated lol.

Just want to be prepared because as soon as I pick up the man, we're going on a trip, and hours after I get home from that trip I go on another weekend trip with my parents. I don't want to send any late packages, I HATE DOING THAT.

By the time the swap had started, I had 120 made- 40 for each of my partners and another 40 for me. Then, it took me the rest of the time to settle down and weave in the ends Tongue

For this round, I'll be using up a bunch of the yarn I got from the Little Odd Ball swaps. I used some in the first round, and didn't keep any of the colors for myself, and I sent off some GDs from yarn I really loved. This time, I'll be making as many as I can from each ball, and then I'll keep some for me and divide the rest between my partners.

You should! Within hours of my being approved I crocheted 20 GDs for each partner (if I get two). So I'm already halfway done and can be done within this week (granted my partners want random GDs).
