THIS SWAP IS OPEN TO BOTH KNITTERS AND CROCHETERS!!!!

Baby it's cold outside.... so knit/crochet me a pair of socks!   Welcome to the Winter Sock Swap!  To participate in this swap, you are agreeing to knit/crochet 1 (one) pair of socks for your partner, and also provide an additional skein (enough for your partner to knit/crochet up an additional pair of socks on their own time) of yarn.  

Now, I'm not your mother, so I'm not going to pester you all about checking in each week.  We are all adults, capable of keeping track of our own obligations... SO... participating in the board is desired, but not required.   Organizational notes will be posted to the board, so I advise checking in to see what is going on.  Sendouts are scheduled for March 15th.  You MUST PM me AND your partner AND provide a DC number when you send.  If I don't hear from you by the deadline, and 1 week has passed, you will receive negative feedback and an angel will be found to replace you.  I think 8 weeks of crafting time for 1 pair of socks is more than reasonable.

IF you would like to do extras.. well, I'll leave that up to you and your partner to discuss and arrange.

So... if you agree to the above... fill out the questionaire and send it to me   stitch81

Also, thank you so very much for organizing! I have my first swap I will be organizing in January (My Favorite Things Poppet Swap), so I couldn't do this one Undecided I really appreciate this, because I needed the push to learn how to knit socks on my new circular knitting needles Grin

No problem! lol.  I am still debating on whether or not I will actually participate in this swap as more than an organizer.  I'm in 2 swaps right now in which the stuff I am making is knitted... so we'll see how that goes.

I was really surprised how easy socks were! I always heard they were so difficult but I had no mistake in my first pair. Good luck on yours

OK, I can crochet socks and sew socks but knit socks......RFLOL.  I can not even get the direction down.  I wish I had someone close enough to help....I think alot of my problem is, if I could see first hand it would help. 

I will have to watch this one and try to finish my hat with 4 needles first.  Then maybe I can get the socks.
