Details of swap:
This swap will be a scavenger hunt with categories each participant must interpret and fulfill with items relating to yarn and yarn crafts, then send to her or his partner.

The idea came from a group on ravelry.com, which led to the blog for the "Knitter's Scavenger Hunt Swap."

Categories

1) Something local
2) Something round
3) Something green
4) Something related to the letter 'T'
5) Something funny
6) Something hard
7) Sender's choice (make up a category for your item!)

I'm going to leave the category definitions up to you and your own interpretations. You may discuss them, but, ultimately, your intuition should be your guide.

Rules:

The number of items sent and received should match the number of categories in the scavenger hunt. Exceptions are if the item representing a category is a pair or set of items, such as a pair of mittens or a set of stitch markers.....extras are allowed, but please try to match them with the categories.

One item per category - no single item can do double-duty and count for two categories. However, if a particular item does work for two categories and having two of them would be pleasing to the recipient, then two may be sent. The exception to that would be if it's a pair of something where having only one of the pair would be useless. If it's a pair, the pair can only count for one category. For example, a pair of blue mittens cannot count for something blue and something that starts with the letter M. However, sending two blue mugs, one for the blue category and one for the letter M category, would be allowable.

The gift for at least one category must be a skein of yarn (quality, please, unless your partner says they love fun fur!).

Items can be bought or handmade. At least one category should be handmade.

At least four of the seven categories must have items relating to yarn and yarn crafts. Other goodies are welcome, but the bulk of your package should be yarnie goodness.

The size of your items will be up to you and your partner.  Thanks!!

Please PM your partner and the organizer when you send out your package and when you receive it. Thanks!

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

I reeeeeeally shouldn't sign up for another swap right now... but, where only one of the items must be crafted, I might be able to sneak this in! I'm determined to finish up my remaining item for another swap before I send in my questionnaire. I need to knit faster! This one sounds too fun to pass up!!!

It seems really flexible and fun. I love swaps like this, and MYB because it turns into a scavenger hunt for me either way! I go to random stores after work with the theme/themes in mind and scour around for treasures.
FUN!

I love this swap.  I'm signed up for the limit of five swaps, so this is the last one for me.
