Details of swap:

This is Round 10 of the Granny’s Daughters Swap! 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.  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 2 partners (for a total of 80).  This is a great project to use up those little bits & pieces of scrap yarn you have laying around. Note: If you would like only 1 partner or would like a 3rd partner (first-time swappers are limited to a maximum of 2 partners), make sure to indicate this in your questionnaire. If you would like a 3rd partner, it may depend on the number of folks who sign up.

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! Please make sure that the starting tails are SECURELY woven in (and not simply crocheted over).

Positive feedback on this swap will be left once your partners have all 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!

Happy to have you along!

I think that I'm going to dig out some yarn tonight and start whipping up a few GDs, myself! I just got a bag from my Gramma, so it seems like it's the appropriate yarn to use Smiley

Just sent in my questionnaire.  Grin This is perfect timing for me to join this swap, since I'm crocheting blankets for the hospice patients I work with. I can use the granny's daughters I get back in the next blanket. Smiley

Always happy to include "a good cause" as a reason for making GDs! Smiley

This swap looks like a lot of fun. Unfortunately, while my swap plate is pretty open at the moment, it's going to be filling up pretty quickly pretty soon....and I'm in the process of making a granny square blanket for both my daughter and son, and they would be so upset with me if I took a break from theirs to make granny daughter's! I think I'll pass this round, but I'm sure I'll join in on a future round!

We'd love to have you join us! Maybe you could incorporate the GDs into the border of their blankets? It might look pretty cute!

But if not, there's sure to be a future round Smiley
