I'm confused by the first method but the ongoing swap method sounds good. Either way I want to join!

I'm fascinated by the "ongoing" idea. 

I read the other threads but am not sure exactly how it works.   Huh  Can someone explain, please?

Also, if anyone is interested in organizing, please do.  Worst case I can probably organize it in January.  Still not sure what to do if there are flakers though...

It's already started (ongoing stuff i can make swap) so have a quick look in the craft swaps bit.  It's just like the original ongoing swap but instead of asking for someone to make things for you you list what you can make.

The best way I can explain it is:

* person #1 makes a list of items they can make.
* someone (person #2) claims an item - person #1 sends it to person #2
* person #2 makes a list of items they could make.

And it carries on like that.

Hope that explained it

I wonder if this system would work with an FO swap.  It might be almost asking for flakers if I (as the Starter) list the stuff I'm willing to give away, then the people who take them are supposed to list stuff they can give away (but what if they don't), and then there's no guarantee that the Starter would receive something at the end of it all.  I like the idea of it being self-perpetuating though.  I just can't figure out how to make it run by itself, and ensure that everyone gets something.  If anyone has any ideas... Huh

I think this is a great idea, however my skills aren't that great and all I can do are crocheting and knitting... so that limits me to scarves and hats, though soon i want to try to make a cute pair of slippers I saw and perhaps wrist warmers.....

this sounds like a fun swap! except i don't know how many people would join, so a traditional swap might be more efficient. (just my 2 cents, don't listen to me!)

This sounds really neat! I haven't been crocheting much lately because all I can manage is scarves and I have more than I need already. Felt stuffies are loads of fun to make as well but I've run out of space on my bed. So yeah. Would we start sign ups in Jan or send in Jan? I'll have more time over the break, what with no school and all so I could work with someone's favorite colors and such.

Personal swaps are fun!
