Me too! Me too! Even if it's not a homespun theme, just give me an MYB to make, man!

I could organize some kind of MYB swap.  I still think a handspun MYB would be cool though.

I count! Besides, there is a fiber swap going on. I know you commented on it. I bet if you really wanted to, you could make it an MYB. Handspun MYB with fiber in the middle. Ooh, it would be like one of those goo-filled chocolates!

i like the idea of including handspun/fiber in a normal myb. I have done it in the past. I love the hunt for little things to include, and planning all my little crafts, I love the winding, the unwinding. It's kind of a ritual that I miss..... I need MYB in my life!

I could use a magic yarn ball in my life too. 

What kind of swap is everyone interested in?  Should we just stick with the usual MYB round 15 or swap 2 oz of handspun with a couple of spinning/yarnie treats thrown in there (extra fiber, spindle, knit/crochet tools etc...).  We could even do something themed like Handspun Hat or Fingerless Gloves MYB with a pattern of choice and a few things thrown in there.

I think sticking with the original MYB theme is probably the best idea.  Those who don't spin would still be able to join.  I could include something on the questionnaire for those who wanted to swap handspun if there is an interest in that.

The basic theme is a pattern of your partners choice, enough yarn to make that pattern and 15-20 small things (4-5 of which are crafted) all wound up and hidden in a ball of yarn.  Partners would be matched according to the type or amount of yarn they would like to swap.

I could start sign-ups tomorrow (Monday Oct.3 or Oct.4) and run them untill October 17.  3 weeks for send-outs Monday November 7.  I'm also cool with 4 weeks for crafting (Nov.14).

How does this sound?
