MAGIC YARN BALL SWAP!!
 

You will send your partner a project kit consisting of a one (or more) skein pattern and yarn of corresponding weight/length for the pattern. The really fun part is that you will first make the yarn into a "magic yarn ball."  This means that you re-wind the yarn yourself, hiding little trinkets and treats inside the yarn as you go.  Some ideas already suggested include tiny toys, candy, crafting supplies, jewelry, etc.

Since we're all crafty people, it goes without saying that we should craft some of the treats ourselves. You will be required to have 15-20 things in the yarn ball and at least 4-5 of them should be small crafts made by you. If you are sending more than one skein, you are only required to send one MYB.  The additional skein(s) can be sent as is.

Also, while I know not everyone can afford it, if its only one skein, try to get the nicest yarn you can afford. Im not saying go buy a forty dollar ball of cashmere yarn (unless you really want to, in which case you can be my partner!) but try to get something youd be excited to receive. I will try to group partners by interests, as well as how much they're able to spend on the yarn.  

When you sign up, let your partner know if you already know what you want the yarn for ("I would like yarn so I can make the MagKnits Sophie Bag"); or, if you have a general idea ("I would like yarn and a pattern for a felt handbag"); or, if you just want a surprise pattern. If you have more than one idea for a pattern, feel free to give your partner a choice of patterns (or books) to choose from.  
*PLEASE do not ask your partner for a photocopied pattern from a book. This is against copyright laws.*

IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE, REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR INFO TO ORGANIZER mama24boyz VIA PRIVATE MESSAGE AND NOT TO REPLY WITH IT HERE.


-Also, remember to read the Swap Info Guide to find other rules about participating in a swap.
The Swap Info Guide will tell you how to ship your item and other details about participating in a swap. You should read this whole thing so you not only understand whats expected of you, but youll also see what Im expected to do.

-In this swap discussion feel free to talk about one skein patterns you love, good websites with patterns, and places to get yarn some people may not know about!
Also, if youre not a member of Ravelry yet, I suggest you get yourself on the list. They make it really easy to find wonderful patterns online and its totally free.

Note: I'm a huge fan of Ravelry and HIGHLY recommend joining. It's a great way to share what projects you've done in the past, as well as get patterns.

*Special thanks to previous MYB organizers from whom I shamelessly borrowed most of this information!

I forgot to mention it in my questionnaire, but whoever gets me as her partner...I LOVE those packets of decorative travel tissues!

(I had surgery done on my nose last year and now it always runs, and with two little ones, someone's always needing a tissue!)
