Details of swap:

This is Round 5 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: 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 (a post in the thread is not sufficient)! 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:

Of course this forces me into the craft swaps section to find there is a Labrynth (sp?) swap going on.  There is half a chance I might join there, but MUST resist Labrynth swap, MUST.

Yep! I figured I'd keep the momentum going! And, I just couldn't leave my swaps in progress at 0 ... Wink  And, since send-outs are almost 3 weeks after the holiday madness, I figured it'd be safe. Although, GDs are good little time fillers for me, so I'll be carrying them around with me between now and then. Already have the little bag packed...

Yes... you must resist... but only because you need to join this swap instead Wink

I am avoiding the swap section at all costs, except for posts in here. I can't spread myself too thin again! I'm trying to stay healthy and on top of all of my work (but forget the housework...) so I have to resist the temptation for any swaps that are more involved than this one Grin (This one is almost like therapy for me! GDs are soothing to make...) And, I have to start the 2010 12" CAL, too... Good thing I have a vacation coming up in 2 1/2 weeks!

Any other time of the year I'd have to say yes, but since I'm already panicking about finishing Christmas presents I don't think I'm going to be able to join the swap. Sad We'll see how long it takes for me to finish everything, though. Maybe I'll luck out and be able to join after all...

Yay! We have swappers! I just added folks to the swap. I'm pretty sure I added it right, but if you could check, I'd love you for it Wink

I do realize that holiday madness and fun will interfere with some GD making quality time, but there is still time to sign up and make them after Christmas Wink

I'm making some as soon as I finish up a study guide. Just about an hour or so, and then I'll be nice and relaxed and can go to sleep Wink
