I've seen it said in several discussions about swapping that if one states, "I want a purple amigurumi octopus" one could end up with several versions of said octopus. So, why don't we do a swap like that? Here's what I'm thinking:

Groups of 4. Each person states 1 item that they collect/want/love and they'll receive 3 from 3 different partners. Medium size items only. Longish crafting time - say 6 weeks.

What do you think? Anyone interested in this?

I love the idea, but could you please clarify...

There would be no way I could make a crochet/knit octopus. I could do a felt, sewn one. Would that be acceptable? Or would you group people by the skills they posess.

But on the other hand, I like to recieve items that I am not skilled or artistic enough to create myself, so being grouped with someone who had the same skills would also be a disapointment.

Sorry to be confusing! So how do you see this working?

I think it would be easier if it was not as specific as the example above. maybe just say "i want a purple octopus" and you could easily get it made out of three different materials, with the looks very different. It'd probably make it easier to pair everyone up as well.

Nilmerg - thanks for asking that question! Smiley I think tiffi answered it best. Rather than specify the craft to make something, we just specify what something we want.

Any other questions? Smiley
