3 people so far! Yay!

One clarification on the questionnaire. I'm going to change "What kinds of fiber could you send" to "What kind(s) of fiber would you like to send/receive (wool, wool & silk blend, bamboo, etc.)". That way I don't end up pairing someone that wants to swap wool with someone that wants to swap a luxury fiber. If you've already sent in your questionnaire and want to change your answer, just PM me.

And I posted a pic on the first post for inspiration.  Grin

To answer a question that came up, if you would like to swap extra beyond the 2 oz. or 4 oz. commitment that is entirely between you and your partner(s). The extra fiber would be treated as a personal swap- as in it won't be a part of the official swap or swap feedback.

Since this is the first round and each person is sending to 2 people, I'm not going to allow for multiple sign-ups. (Unless we have a weird number of people and it's the only way to make it work.) Let's see how this round goes, and maybe we'll make it an option for the next round.

I am getting so excited and it's only the second day of sign-ups.  Cheesy

I wish I could take credit for the bamboo! But I don't have any dyes for cellulose fibers...yet.  Grin  The 2 bamboo braids are from chimera on etsy. Don't check out her site unless you plan on drooling! The colors are so amazingly brilliant.
The green/brown/orange one I dyed. I call it Gila since when I asked Jeff what it reminded him of he said Gila Monster.  Tongue Cheesy
The brown/blue/white towards the right was dyed by superhooker. It's called Freestyle's Living Room and is very aptly named.  Grin
