I-cord is a tubular knit cord. I am cheating and using my embellishknit. The original was said to have some i-cord and chained crochet pieces as well. I have cut up my handspun ends and random colors of random yarn last night. I guess I will use any excess that is not sent off for a christmas gift. I am using random colors for the i-cord as well. The tricky part is keeping it rom breaking beore I get the 10', but I thought it would be fun.

Micheaels ribbon (10 yards) is on sale for 5 for $1, if anyone is interested.  All their holiday ribbon is half-off too, but most of if doesn't even make ten feet.

I wish we had stores like that in the UK. Craft stores here are really expensive Sad

We don't have a Michaels here so I had to go with JoAnn's 6 yard spools 3 or a dollar. Not nearly as frugal, but I do have more options and colors to choose from. I am tempted to make several in different colors. I wish I could weave them, then the different strands and textures would standout more.

We have a whole week left for sign-ups.

I think I am going to make my mother a scrapbook kit with the let over bits that are too short for scarves, but still quite useful.

I was just wondering if there was a Rapunzel scarf swap on the boards.  So happy to find you.  I'd love 2 spots.  My daughters decided to make these for her friends for Christmas gifts, so I've got a boat load of fancy pants yarns.  Luckily I found this swap because I hadn't thought to add ribbon or fabric.  I'm a quilter so I've got the fabric part covered with my eyes closed.

Alrighty, it seems we are getting good interest so I am officially opening the option to participate in two sendout groups, meaning you will send 6 pieces of 10-foot lengths of yarn, fabric, ribbon, etc. to 10 partners.

If you would like to participate in 2 groups and have already sent in your questionnaire, please either post your in this thread or send me a PM.  I will denote your request on the participant list; do not hesitate in contacting me if I have your status incorrect.

Wait, is that right?  If the original requirement was 6 pieces to 5 people (totaling 30 pieces), then wouldn't double that be either 12 pieces to 5 people or 6 pieces to 10 people?

You would have 10 different partners and 10 different envelopes of yarn.  Each envelope would contain 6 strands of 10 foot long yarn, etc.  So you would be cutting and sending 60 yarn strips instead of 30 (double). 
I think that is right!

I would like to be in two groups. I would prefer neutrals in one group and aqua/teal/turquiose in the other. My daughter was coveting the aqua ones I had collected. I have started grouping snippets in various color families.

I don't want anyone to have to go buy anything, so either of the color groups above, or sage/olive greens or burgandy/wines are on the prefered list, with soft complimenary colors acceptable as well.

Okay, wait I was way toooooo sleepy when I posted that....
If you choose to have 2 groups, you would send 6 pieces of 10-foot lengths to 10 partners.
(But remember it is all based on participants, we may have to be flexible.....feel free to recruit peeps Wink)

If you do 1 group, you are sending 30 lengths of yarn, etc. in the swap.
If you do 2 groups, you are sending 60 lengths of yarn, etc. in the swap.

I am very sorry for the confusion! Cry  Math & nighttime don't mix for me....I just doubled everything instead of just participants. Tongue

I'm in for two spots, whatever the math gods and our organizer tell me to do I'm in.  This is going to be great and will help me get more Christmas gifts checked off of the list.
