SO you've seen the Magic Yarn ball swaps.... and there even was a Magic ROVING ball swap once... now its our turn!

The idea of the swap is that you spin up some yarn for your partner then wrap it up just like a normal MYB but here's the catch! Everything in the ball is spinning related. SO dyes, rovings, little bits of unusual fibres (firestar, silks, angelina etc), spindles, curly locks, labels, even threads, beads and other little things you can use to spin or dye with! The possibilities are endless!

All levels of spinners would be welcome, and there will even be a question of who you would prefer to be paired with in case you are new and want to swap with someone else who is new to spinning!

Now the only questions are how much yarn should be swapped (I was thinking 2-4 oz.?) and who wants in on the fun!

I can organize as soon as there's enough interest and everyone is ready!

You ditched the other thread talking about this to start this one? Someone should add this link to that discussion then, I think. You know I'm down. I'm going to go track down the other thread and link this one.

This is a neat idea but this swap could get expensive really quick and time consuming. I think I would like to have a more concrete idea on the requirements.
I've been spinning for 1 year and I spin on drop spindles only so 4 ounces of yarn takes me quite a bit of time to spin.

In regards to what DesignVigilante said, maybe you could have a 4oz category and a 2oz category, same way you pair beginners, intermediate, etc.  I'm just learning so 2oz would be more my speed.  I'd love to do this, but don't have much crafting time until after finals (Mid-May).

*bump*

I thought there was more interest in this. Come on, ladies! Do we need to put another word up in the spinning boards? I agree about the 2oz vs 4oz option, but I wouldn't really be too upset with sending 4 and receiving 2 as long as there were other goodies involved.

That's actually a good idea. spinning 2 ounces is totally feasible for me and then maybe i could include 2 ounces of fiber for a total of 4 ounces of fiber goodness.

that would be a good idea!  Send a total of 4 oz, wth a minimum of 2 oz spun.  might not be the biggest myb, but I bet it would be awesome anyway.
