So tempting!  But I only crochet...  Do spinners ask for specific items or give a general idea of what they're interested in? 

I for one listed specific crafts I'd love to get and links to pintrest boards pertaining to that craft for ideas. I'm signed up as a spinner, but i also knit & crochet and like most crafters, I rarely get around to crafting for myself so I wouldn't mind receiving either. Smiley

You should totally join. People ask for both specific items and give out general ideas. I've swapped with you before and anyone who got you as a partner would be lucky!

so my questionnaire wasn't very specific, but once we're partnered, I'll make sure that my partner knows what I can make / what I like. I was actually at work filling out the questionnaire (at the end of the day) and was a bit rushed. I've never used hand spun yarn before, and I'm really excited for this swap. Smiley

I'd like to join this one, but as I only spin natural (sheep) fiber in natural colours (I do dye sometimes but also only natural dyes, so no fancy colours) so I don't know if anyone would be interested...

I WOULD!
Oh wait, I'm signed up as a spinner so I might not count but I thought I would voice that anyway.

I would most definitely be interested. Naturally dyed handspun yarn sounds lovely. Unfortunately, I'm signed up as a spinner. However, I really think you should sign up. I'm sure there would be someone interested in naturalor naturally dyed handspun.

Ok, you convinced me; I'll sign up ;-)

Eep!  This is so tempting!  I have been out of the swap loop for so long... I'm having withdrawals! I will have to seriously think about this one. I just learned to crochet, so I would LOVE some hand spun yarn... but I just moved 6 months ago so most of my craft supplies are in storage.  I will have to ponder if the craft supplies I have on hand are enough to make a few awesome things.

This does sound like a fun swap, but I'm on a swap hiatus right now. I can't wait to see your gallery though.
