I wouldn't join if I *had* to send handspun... I don't spin/don't know where to get it and I don't knit much with handspun yarn. Don't get me wrong, I love the look of handspun yarn, but I mostly use it as decoration.

I got a huge ball of inspiration in the mail the other day and I've unwrapped a lovely MYB today. So much fun! I got a bit sidetracked since I found a hook and started crocheting one of the patterns I got. But I feel good about this swap. I've been inspired the whole day so I started cleaning the craft room, a very important step towards craftiness. Wink

I've almost given up on one of my item ideas, but I started on a different one today and it's turning out great!

We have a shipper!!!!! Zomg. So excited. Sherrie B,UT wins the cookie (the metaphysical cookie of awesomeness)!! I'll make the galley thread first thing in the morning.. oh, wait, it's 5am. Okay, I'll post the gallery thread in a few hours, after I get some sleep.
COOOKIES!!!!!in my most convincing Cookie monster voice, never relized insomnia had such benefits! LOL

Maybe the next MYB round will require hand spun yarn.. Whacha all think?
Unfortunately, with my work schedule & soon having an arrival of my own (Special Needs Adult Niece) I would have to bow out of that one--can't spin, no clue how, not even on the life list to learn. But I am sure y'all have tons of signer uppers---as DH says *I can't be in EVERY swap***

if it is required to have handspun yarn, would it be required that you spun it yourself? Because I wouldn't know where to begin spinning/dying my own yarn but I could buy some.

I didn't mean to start so much conversation over just an idea. I'll keep it as an option for the next round, that's all.

I have my yarn ball all wound up and am just finishing packing up tonight.  So hopefully I'll get it off in the next day or so!

there is also the handspun/handcraft swap that comes up (I think a round is currently in progress ie closed). One person sends handspun yarn, the other person sends a craft. It's really nice, I loved being a part of it! (I was the hand spinner)

I'm in the same swap as a crafter but I'm hoping to be a spinner in the near future
