Details of swap:

This is Round 6 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 (http://www.paulascharity.com/Home/index.html).  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 granny daughters 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 granny daughters 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.

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:

We are up to five (I'm including craftADDchick  Wink).

Does anyone else get reject GDs (too big, too small, something wrong)?  What are your plans with them?  I am thinking a scarf or if I ever get around to making my crochet motif curtain I can include them there.

Yay! Thanks! I've almost got my other swap mess sorted out (I've made 2 fabric cutting errors and one of them requires a clearer brain than I have at the moment), so I should be able to officially join soon Wink

My "reject" GDs are based on color, mostly. After the first or second round, I decided to go with solids only in my blanket, so I have a plethora of variegated GDs to use. I do have a few with ends that were not woven and were cut too short, so I may apply some fabric glue and use them in a scarf. I have some that look a lot smaller (I think they're made with Caron Simply Soft), but they stretch out to a similar size. They're all in the range, I think. Once I weave in the ends to all of them, I'll do a final size check. Then, I'll use the scarf as a way to perfect my joining method. I have an idea, but I need to test it out, and a a scarf will be the ideal thing to try it on... although as I typed that sentence, I think I have a flaw in my idea... additional pondering is needed Wink

I LOVE the idea of using your scarf to test your joining method.  I want pictures when that happens.

I think I'm going to start weaving in the ends on my "extra" (calling them "rejects" just seems so cruel Wink ) GDs so I can try it out. fantasticmio has been helping me work out a good way to do it, and I'm actually looking forward to joining them together Wink

And, since I finally (2 weeks late) got my swap package sent, I should be able to sign up by the middle of the week, I think!
