That sign-up should work for me as well.  Hopefully I'll have cleared out a few swaps by then Cheesy

I think this would be a fun swap and will be watching for sign ups. The timing in mid March or a little later sounds great.  I am a sewer but neither crochet or knit.  I have sewn quite a few things for previous swaps and really enjoy making things in color and schemes for partners, it lets me step out of my decorating style and enjoy someone elses.  Would love to recieve some awesome crocheted or knitted items.

Mid march... hmm... I'll have to see how much time is taken up by my new job (work takes away from crafting time- lame, right?) but this sounds like a fun swap!  I can sew and have been wanting to learn a yarn craft... I just haven't gotten around to it yet.  Also, by mid march I'll be eligible for a swap.

Though the "quality" sewn item things kind of weirds me out... I don't think I am that good (I'm very detail oriented, if the top stitching isn't just right I get annoyed and want to do redo it but usually don't have the time) but other people never seem to notice.  It'd be my first swap.  I think it could be fun.  I'll definitely be looking for the sign up!

I think "quality" just means the best sewing (knitting, crochet, etc) you can produce, done with your partner in mind, with effort! I wouldn't think it would necessarily mean you have to be an ace sewer or anything, just competent and putting out real effort.

I'm good with mid-March Smiley

thinking of old Dr Pepper commercials
"I'm a yarnie you're a yarny, she's a yarny-wouldn't you like to be a yarny too"
On a more SERIOUS note..(slight cough) I have brought a knit bible & I am Bound ??& determined to know more than knit & purl--then I was told there is no more, just how you manipulate them..sheesh $25 for what? LOL
So same sales clerk says, too bad you don't crochet (have been nearly 4 decades & it's easier) & says that it Complicated. She prefers sewing....What an interesting conversation on this subject huh?
OK off to craft on my day off! Actually I have to clean the house before the cleaners get here

So if it's TECHNICALLY a medium size & you spend like FOREVER learning how to do it, is it still a medium?

I'm going to have to agree with you and with her. Crochet is easier to do, but there are a larger variety of stitches (sc, dc, tc, hdc, etc) so I guess some people may think it's more complicated. But it's not. Wink

My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I'd need so many people
