I think the "no yarn" part was part of the example of how to write your answer to that section.
Yes I thought so too (but wasn't sure).

OMG - I blink and get 7 (yes seven!!) questionnaires Smiley

And it looks like everyone is answering the questions raised, so I'll just sit back and enjoy!

Feeling cr*p (full of cold) and aiming for an early night, so I'll look at the questionnaires and sort out the 'paper'work in the morning.

So A5 it is, but are there no rules for the weight?

Last round we were *supposed* to keep it at "normal" weight limits.  I really don't think anyone actually did, though.  There was lots of joking around about getting negative feedback if you were "over-stuffing"...but I know for sure I over-stuffed, and Mini_mum let it slide Smiley

I am pretty sure the "no yarn" part was an example of the sort of detail to give your partner, as well.

DSD is right about the weight last round - which is one reason why I've specified env size this time round Wink (and defo neg feedback for using a bigger one  Grin Grin Grin )

And yes - the 'no yarn' was part of the example.

Just sent in my sign-up!

This is an international swap and the size requirement for the envelope is A5 (US equivalent is about A9 Diplomat size). This can be any type of envelope, as long as it is this size.
I just Googled it too and it looks like it's the one that measures 5 3/4 in x 8 3/4 in, so that'd fit an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet folded the hamburger way. Of course, we'll be filling them with a lot more than that!

LOL!  What is the "hamburger" way to fold a piece of paper?
