so here's my question... i know this was discussed to death in the "new swap idea" post of this, but I'm curious anyways.  I imagine that sewing three small accessories might take a bit less time than knitting three accessories.  Not that I'm at all hating on sew-ers... I just know that even knitting myself an accessory (a hat, an ipod cozy) is a committed project.  So three seems... a bit overwhelming.  Does anyone else have a thought on this?

I agree with you DithMer.. I was thinking about that before I signed up, but we can knit 2 small things and a "big" thing, right?

Can it be more of an open swap where we make arrangements with our partners?  What if we want someone to knit us a shrug and they want a skirt?  I want to sign up but I'm not feeling the three accessories thing.

Perhaps that is the best...let the partners decide what and how much....any objections? If not then I'll change the sign up.
