SIGN-UPS started: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69991.0! Come and join!

Anybody remember those ones we all used to make with thread and those "4" knots? What if we all made one and sent it to someone? They are so light, we could probably send then in regular envelopes for very minimal postage.
Any takers?
Now, I can't organize, if there are folks that want to do this, and I also can't be in it, prob. until the end of November (when my first swap finishes).
But I would be willing to organize, come January maybe? Unless you guys want to do it before Christmas.
Anyway, yep.
EDIT:
Just because I'm bored. But they do not need to be that complicated. I can't even make them that complicated.

Oooo...I used to make those! They are so fun, and the postage would be decently low.

I'd be interested. I'm not an expert at making them, but they are fun, and I do enjoy giving things to others. :p

If you want to spruce up the idea and make it a tad more original, how about freidnship belts? Same concept, only thicker and longer.

Though that probably wouldn't be able to fit in a regular envelope without a little extra postage added onto it . . .

the belt thing is a good idea. i wonder why it never occured to me to use larger more substantial yarn to do these projects.

done the typical way (using embroidery floss) you would really need a long time to make the belt wide enough and long enough to fit around a person's waist, also you would have to splice two strands together frequently which can sometimes be a drag.

but using regular yarn and the same technique a belt would look very cool indeed!

*nodnod* I once made wrist-warmers in the friendship-bracelet fashion. Not exactly the classiest thing I ever did, but it was kinda fun, and they served their purpose.
