Details of swap:

This is Round 8 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.  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 motifs 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 motifs 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  Wink

Weaving in the tails: The directions call for a 6" tail to be left at the end. Unlike earlier rounds, ALL OUTSIDE TAILS WILL NOT BE WOVEN IN. 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. Thanks!

NEW OPTION! The Variegated Twist! Choose a variegated yarn and make at least 5 GDs with that yarn. Then, find at least 4 coordinating solids and make at least 6 GDs of each solid color. Every effort will be made to partner you up with at least one partner who is interested in the Varigated Twist (once allergies and out of country restrictions are taken care of).

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

This sounds amazing!  And not so time consuming, too, which would be great.  I hope I can get my feedback from my first swap before sign ups are closed.

Love to have you join in!

If you've met all of the requirements (sent/received/posted pics or whatever they may be) for that swap, and it's close to the deadline, you could always ask for feedback. Most of the time, your organizer will give it to you. Smiley

CraftADD - You're evil...  you know that right??  Wink  I'm supposed to be on swap sabbatical...  I'm not even supposed to look at the swap board...  and if I do there's not supposed to be some awesome swap that I simply can't resist.  Its been a while since I've done one of these.  If I did another one might actually be able to start making something...  hmmmmmm.....   Yeah - this is all your fault. Cheesy

I will happily take the blame Grin

I've been on a swap sabbatical, too. But, this swap is easy, inexpensive to ship and uses materials I have on hand. So, I figure it's okay if I step back into swap civilization for it Wink
