I am rereading through the Wheel of Time series now. What a great series!! I could see myself whipping up some crafty goodness relating to the series. There are so many rich possibilities for ideas since Robert Jordan's world is so complex! I saw that there were suggestions for this swap earlier, but none actually happened, so here I am, trying again.

I could do it in July or later probably....
I've never organized a swap but I probably could if no one else offers.

So...who's interested? Cheesy

Yes! I'm reading the most recent one, I let my friend borrow the others so I can't reread yet. These are my favorite books ever! I've seen some beautiful Aes Sedai shawls, I would love to do this. Later would be better, and I could organize... if its after my first one I'm doing at the end of May. Sendouts for that one would be the beginning of July, so maybe the end of July? Or earlier if someone else could organize. I really, really want to do this!

I just reread the entire series over the course of last spring through fall! I'd love to do this swap!!!

I know I just posted, but I started having heart palpitations over this swap! I would be available any time since I pretty much always have an open swap slot. I'd wonder about giving things away, though, to those who may not have read the whole series?

Hmm thats a good point!

(But if you star the series and love it enough to enter the swap how can you NOT have read all the books?! Smiley )

Anyway, we can probably put a question in the survey about the latest book they've read.
Hm, and there would have to be some sort of rule about the swap gallery as well.

Well, I'm sure if the swap gets going, we can work out the rules to everyone's satisfaction Smiley

Hmm... either I fail at searching or I see a distinct lack of Wheel of Time crafts. A few I did find:

And a few other rings here and there...

 I'm also reading the newest book and love it - I've never done a swap though I would be into giving this one a try.

I love these books, but am struggling to imagine crafts that could be made, beyond Aes Sedai rings, shawls, or pieces of cuendillar, which makes it difficult to imagine actually joining the swap...

Those are all good ideas....

You could also make angreal, sa'angreal, ter'angreal, something out of the chapter headings, Rand's dragon tattoo, something with the map of the world, portraits/dolls of the characters, aiel garb, things based on house colors/sigils,  there are so many things!!!

But of course, it is up to you whether you join Smiley
