I'm so excited that there's so excitement over the Stocking Swap! I really look forward to it every year. Smiley

I don't put a limit on the number of swappers, but it's so much fun having tons of swappers!

I'll have to give some thought to two partners. I have so much time to craft. But I worry though about getting a partner that doesn't like the "simple" items I make. It doesn't matter as much with 1 partner as I can just spend more time and make them what they want (if they didn't like the crafts I do I wouldn't be partnered with them in the first place), but If do that with 2 partners I wouldn't want to be devoting less time to their package. For example I can easily pound out hats, scarfs and simple toys. But it they want tons of advanced amis, I can do them, but they aren't my favorite and I could make probably 10 hats (even double layered ones with images) and scarfs in the time I could make 1 of the amis...... On the other hand, most people have to restrict their crafting to a few hours a night or weekends. I have 14 hours a day. I can do more in a day or 2 than most people have time to do in a week (man, I need a life)  Even if every item pushed my skills, I would still be able to sent packages that would met/exceed swap requirements. I just always worry.... It is just me  Wink Or perhaps I should do a personal swap with someone who knows they like what I can make (I have a link in my signature)? Or join other swaps too (though I planed to just do this one and some personal ones to make sure I would have more than enough time)? Yeah, as you can see I have a hard time make decisions  Cheesy

I am so jazzed for this swap I've make a couple knitted fair isle "test" stockings.

I would love to swap for things kids could do in the car on a long car trip (3 girls ages 5-12). I can knit, crochet or trade yarn.

Thanks kaz and TroubleT. You two are too kind.

I hope to partner with TroubleT (she asked, I am just making sure she is okay with a knitted stocking as I can't sew at all). I always have such a fun time crafting for her. Oh.... and just think of all the extra time we would have to craft. Oh, can I start now  Grin

I just wish I could steal the socks that you made for my daughter. Wink
Hummmm..... socks..... writing that down  Wink
