personally I crochet and have no idea how to knit, but I love knitted items and would love to recieve some cool knitted stuff. I'm sure a swap like this has been done before but I'd like to start another one. I would love to organize it (it'd be my first time organizing a swap) idk about timing though bc I have vaction at the end of June so I'll be gone for a week.

I'm like you - I crochet, but don't knit (and its not for a lack of trying, I just can't get the hang of it). But I LOVE knitted things!

and sometimes it can be hard to craft for some swaps when your main craft is crochet.

I think this would be fun...I am the opposite. I knit and love all things that are crocheted. But for the life of me just can't get the hang of it!

I would absolutely join this swap! I started knitting when I was 14, and all I could ever make was scarves. I tried making booties, hats, bags, etc., but I was only successful with scarves. Even making those took me FOREVER!

Then I discovered crochet and my world exploded. lol. I find it so much easier to understand and experiment with. Still, though, I love the look of knitted things.

For this swap, though, you would have to think of some way to even out the crocheters and knitters. Maybe you would have to say signups close when there are 10 crocheters and 10 knitters, or something similar.

I'll be looking for signups to open for this one. I really hope you decide to organize it!

yeah I'm gonna make it an even number of crocheters and knitters. what kind of time frame should there be? (sign ups? how long to craft? send date?) the last week of june I'm going to be on vacation so I would prefer if send out date was either before (or preferably) after that week. and I don't want my package sitting around while I'm gone either. and how big of a swap do we want to make it? I'm not really a fan of point system swaps myself. I'm gonna go do some research on the swap board for ideas.

how about 1 large item and either 1 medium or 2 smalls and sign-ups till Jun 5th and then send outs July 10th? I'll prolly start this late tonight or tomorrow night because as usual I'm working alot this week  Roll Eyes
