Swap name: Friendship Granny Square Swap R14 (June)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: indigo_roses

All ages allowed? Yes (Parental consent required for those under 18!)

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES

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.

The sendout date for this swap is always the last day of the month! For this round, that is June 30.

SWAP RULES:

1. Please put Friendshipghan R14 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.

Mulitple Partners
In round 10, I received a couple requests for having multiple partners. Now, 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. I also reserve the right to limit you to one partner if you have a history of sending late it this swap.

Well, we closed signups for this round with 6 people. Partners are now up! Due to allergies, we have two groups of three, so make sure you know who you are sending to and who you are receiving from. Questionnaires will be out shortly, pm me if you have any questions!

Wow, people are quiet. How are your squares coming along? I've completed 2 1/2 for TheWorldFamous so far. I was meaning to do more while I was on vacation, but the beach sucked me in.  Tongue

I've got my yarn out and ready to go, but I haven't done any crocheting yet. I have this whole weekend free, so I hope to get a lot of squares done!

I actually need to buy yarn still. Both of my partners want very specific colors that I just ran out of. I'm hoping to go to joann's tomorrow since their red heart is on sale right now.

This is a reminder that sendouts are on TUESDAY! I hope you all are making progress on your squares! If you could all let me know your status (either here or in a pm), that would be great.  Smiley

Also, are people interested in continuing this swap, or do you think we should take a break for summer? Only 6 people were in this round, and I don't want to end up with like, 2 for the next. Opinions?
