So, is anyone up for another round of the scavenger hunt motif swap? We had a lot of fun last time! Basically there is a list of categories of motifs (by colors, pattern, shape, etc) and you get to pick which ones

Last time we sent a minimum of 6 motifs, sent from this list, and you may have multiple partners:

1. A flower motif
2. An animal or animal themed motif
3. Motif uses Front Post Double Crochet
4. Motif uses Bobble Stitches
5. A Lacy Motif
6. A tiny motif (less than 3 inches)
7. Motif is worked in the round
8. Motif is worked diagonally
9. Motif uses hairpin lace or broomstick lace
10. Motif is made up of smaller motifs (think grannys daughters, yo-yos, etc)
11. Motif is asymmetrical
12. A heritage motif.
13. Motif is made of at least 3 various shades or tones of one color
14. Motif is made with complimentary colors (opposite from each other on the color wheel)
15. Senders Choice


Here is the first round:

I was hoping we'd do this again! I'm good to go any time now. Smiley

I even got a nifty new motif book for Christmas!

Uhg, I've packed it away already for the trip home, but I posted a link to it on Amazon on the crochet board in the Lacy Delight Throw thread (I think that was it...) "Beyond The Square" I think...

I got a flowers one. Like, a million flowers to knit or crochet, or some such. Smiley

Yeah! That might be the one I want, or it might be crochet only. Have to check out my amazon list, I do have $50 from my Christmas stocking.

Well, since I'm only doing crochet/yarn swaps for now, I'm totally in!

And, if I time the Little Odd Ball swap right (which I may start tomorrow), I might even have some new bits of yarn to play with. Not that I'm lacking in yarn...

The Odd Balls are ten 10-yard balls of yarn. It's typically been acrylic, but I may open it up to other types too.

Question for the motif swap: Will we be using the same categories, or coming up with some new ones? I don't have any ideas to contribute at the moment, but I could always think (but I'm on vacation... I'm trying to keep the thinking to a minimum Wink ).
