Details of swap:

This is Round 8 and a Half of the Granny’s Daughters Swap! It’s a mini version of the regular Granny’s Daughters Swap (check out Round 8 HERE) to take care of our Granny’s Daughters fix before the holidays (and to entice anyone else to dip their toes into the waters of Granny’s Daughters!). 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.  And, information on joining Granny's Daughters 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 1 partner (you may send more if you and your partner agree to exchange an equivalent amount).  This is a great project to use up those little bits & pieces of scrap yarn you have laying around.

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 partner has 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!


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

I was unawares that we were having round 8.5 so if I ever get a break and can fill out this questionnaire umm....  DUH!  I'll be there!  At the rate I'm going I'll be able to actually make something without having to add my own GDs to the pile with these lovely partners sending me GDs!

Yay! I can't wait to start, actually! I truly am addicted to making them (joining them, not so much Wink ).

And, I just got 2 questionnaires and realized I left the bit in about number of partners (and I read it over at least 3 times to make sure it was accurate... shouldn't do things late in the evening Tongue ). There's only 1 partner per person in this round.

Awesome! And, I know I'd love a rainbow of colors Wink

Don't be sad! Be glad that you're able to join in the fun again, even if it's only a mini version Smiley At the rate things are going, the holidays will be over, and I'll be able to start the next round! You could always crochet a batch in advance Wink
