That sounds about right, I would even say a small baby blanket if it wasn't immaculate. I always tend to overdue my mediums when it comes to crochet, but not too much I think. I disagree on the socks for a knitter though, I know hand knit socks are one of the most coveted things in the craft world, and they take a lot of time from what I understand. for me, I consider a hat and scarf smalls if they are not that elaborate... slippers and mittens take me a little more time though, a medium sounds right.

ya, see I wasn't sure about the knit socks, I thought they may be more larges too, but thought I'd mention them anyways  Grin.  And I do agree with you on the hats and scarf, if they are just an easy design I would say smalls too, but both together would be a medium I would think.  Sometimes, depending on the pattern a scarf alone could be a medium, but I would think I would always put a hat as a small, unless its really elaborate!!!

I think PixieVal and I have the crocheted mediums down, but Maybe a knitter can tell us some ideas of what they think would be mediums??  Grin

I crochet socks and I don't know, I think I crochet kind of slowly, but I would make them for this swap if that was what the person wanted. I love making socks! I've also never really cared about "size reqs." I mean, I always try to do at least the minimum but sometimes I go overboard. Like in a hoopla round I sent a skein of handspun yarn (that she thankfully didn't post, I might have gotten in trouble for that?) just because I knew she would love it. So on that note: Would it be OK with the organizer if the partners decided to do more than just a medium? Like, if I'm a hooper and and my yarnie partners wants to make me a large or something I could totally throw in some extras, you know, more than 1 hoop, some yarn... But also, sometimes hoops can be more than just a medium in themselves, too so... Wait, what am I saying?

Tis would be fun, and I could be either a hooker or a hooper lol I'll have to wait until Friday to decide whether or not this will fit in the budget though. Smiley

Gonna have to think about this one. I want to do a swap, and love the idea of this one. What if I am both a hooper and a crocheter. I would love to do a hoop for something knitted that is a skill I have not mastered.

So many ideas so little time. Will I ever get them all done?

OK, then send in your questionnaire as a hooper and state on it that you'd like to be paired with a knitter  Wink I think so far (I could be wrong here, don't be mad at me!!) that we've only got crocheters so far.  Hoping we got some knitters too!!

I knit, and when I think of mediums, I think of things like:
complex fingerless gloves or mittens (colorwork especially)
hats that are more simple tubes
simple shawlettes
scarves
cowls that are more than simple tubes

Definitely not socks, and nothing much bigger than a 24" square (in total -- a scarf would be longer but not as wide), unless I was using *really* bulky yarn. Probably not anything made with less than sport-weight yarn.


I go by time spent, usually, and I use "a few hours to up to two days" as my medium range. (Socks take a week, if I'm lucky.)
