Swap name: Yarnies Scavenger Hunt Round 7
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: kayrun
Craftster member who is co-organizing this swap: n/a
Sign-up date range: Sept. 8-16, 2013
Date to send item by: Oct. 16, 2013

Limited to a certain number of people? Yes, 22.
Restricted to people who all live in the same country? No.
Additional Age requirement?

Swap Organizer himself/herself meets these conditions:
- Has fully read the Swap Info Guide: YES
- Has successfully completed two swaps as a participant: YES
- Is not organizing more than three swaps right now: correct
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: YES
- Is at least 18 years old: oh, yes!

Swap Organizer will check each participant to make sure they meet these conditions:
- Has been a member for at least one month: YES
- Has posted at least 15 times: YES
- Has completed one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps at a time: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: correct
- Does not have any negative feedback: correct
- Participant has agreed that he/she is at least 16 years old: YES
- If within the US, understands that Delivery Confirmation number is required for this swap: YES
- If outside the US, understands that a mailing receipt copy is required for this swap: YES


Details of swap:
This swap will be a scavenger hunt with categories each participant must interpret and fulfill with items relating to yarn and yarn crafts, then send to her or his partner.


Categories :

1. Something local
2. Something green
3. Something recycled
4. Something hard
5. Something funny
6. Something related to the letter 'M'
7. Something dotted
8. Sender's choice

I'm going to leave the category definitions up to you and your own interpretations. You may discuss them, but, ultimately, your intuition should be your guide.

Rules:
The number of items sent and received should be no more and no less than the number of categories in the scavenger hunt. Exceptions are if the item representing a category is a pair or set of items, such as a pair of mittens or a set of stitch markers.

One item per category - no single item can do double-duty and count for two categories. However, if a particular item does work for two categories and having two of them would be pleasing to the recipient, then two may be sent. The exception to that would be if it's a pair of something where having only one of the pair would be useless. If it's a pair, the pair can only count for one category. For example, a pair of blue mittens cannot count for something blue and something that starts with the letter M. However, sending two blue mugs, one for the blue category and one for the letter M category, would be allowable.

The gift for at least one category must be a skein of yarn (quality, please, unless your partner says they love fun fur!).

Items can be bought or handmade. At least two categories should be handmade.

At least five of the eight categories must have items relating to yarn and yarn crafts. Other goodies are welcome, but the bulk of your package should be yarnie goodness.

Please PM your partner and the organizer when you send out your package and when you receive it.

You must post in the thread in order to be approved and post at least once a week until you have sent your package to your partner.

The size of your items will be up to you and your partner.  Thanks!!

Ooo!  This looks GOOD!  I'll definitely be keeping my eye on this one. Just a question though,.. How many items have to be hand made?  Or did I completely miss that info?

yes, yes!  I think you are the person who brought this to the front page on
the new swap ideas & jogged my memory about starting this round   ;D

Oh, and for you & Ninaprettyballerina ~~ I can extend signups for a few days, if

i quite like the
 "My therapist said I should keep knitting [or is it just 'knit'?] should I feel the need to kill someone. again." 

"I knit so i don't kill people"

"Knit fast, die warm"

;D

I agree! I took a semester off before starting my grad work but it feels like I took years off! It was like this whole summer all I did was crafty stuff (and enjoyed the HECK out of it!) and then Aug/Sept came and...Where did all of my time go?? If someone has an additional pair of hands or even a hand, I'll gladly partake in the borrowing of hands as well.

I hate that round robin thing. Last time I did that we ended up sending to each member of the round robin, so we all got to know each other and enjoyed the goodness of Jordan, Holland and Scotland.

when I first took over the swap, I think there were over 40 questions!

It was quite insightful and thorough...don't change it...I was just giving you grief--ha ..seriously--it makes the whole partnering thing a bit better! Thanks...don't let me give you crap! ;D

I think lots of questions are good, if it's a fill-out-what-you-want-to-fill-out questionnaire like this one, and can definitely think of *more* for the list (though I agree with the ones you cut out of the old one, many of which fall under simply 'what are you a fan of?').  We have eight items to stalk for, after all!  And I know I don't have the best of pinterest/faves.  For example, to my future partner, what sorts of things do you like to receive?  Would like made for you?  Or do not want?  Anything you could always use more of or think you should have?

good questions to ask a partner, hazelly! I know we all like to swap to make things our partner really would like! ;D

This is a fun and interesting swap for sure....it is like two puzzles:  the scavenger part and finding out about our partners! ;D

So so tempting, I keep coming back to this thread and pondering. However I have just done two swaps which both ended on same day (one was lengthened half way through) being a slow crafter I was crafting until 10-11pm from 2-3pm and not being in the best health completely exhausted myself. That said I am dying to get back to knitting and have really enjoyed these in the past. What to do what to do??

Also am in England, is anyone else or at least Europe as am going to struggle with postage costs to America Canada Australia...

I've not done this swap either Felline, but I'd say fill out your questionnaire and join us if this will be the one swap you want to do and focus on.

If you want to take a break you can always craft in  parallel and just gift the items to yourself as a reward for finishing the other swaps.

It won't be the only one I am doing which is where the dilemma comes from. However it may be light relief from the other. Not that I wouldn't take it seriously of course I would, but knitting is my favourite craft and sewing which I will be doing in the other can get me frustrated as it is still new to me!

Sorry, hope to join you next round!

Last minute decision to send in my questionnaire - hope it is not too late.
I haven't done any swaps in ages, but I so want to do it again and with how much I love knitting and crocheting right now, it's perfect.

And seeing that I am not the only European craftster I don't have to feel so bad that just because of me one person has to pay a whole lot more for shipping fees. Always gives me a guilty conscience ;)

Feline2001--you should consider joining the Fake Swap Craftalong...haha...you are your own partner and just go along with a current swap but "send" to yourself!  I do that when I need a deadline for myself!

gosh, new_bee..glad you are joining!  Please never feel guilty about being international...a lot of people enjoy swapping international...yarn is light, right? ;)

I've had some (I think) brilliant ideas for the categories of this swap, which I think I'll keep as a secret in order to surprise my partner.  However, if anyone else is particularly stuck, or is just interested in what I'm doing, message me.

Could be  ;)

Don't do intarsia very often, but find that bobbins definitely help stop things getting tangled. I usually just cut up some cardboard for bobbins. I think best advice is to keep things a little loose behind the picture.

Working on my second item  ;D

I've had a super-busy week at work, so have been too wiped to craft at night!
I plan to get going this weekend, and the nice thing is we have a week long fall break
(I'm a teacher) starting on Oct. 7......

For this swap, I usually have to let my ideas swirl around for a bit until I decide
which category they belong in   :)

Andie, I love the teaser pic, and you really have me curious!

I know in past rounds, "green" has been used a lot of different ways. I think I've used it as being recycled before, I know others have interpreted it as organic, earth-friendly, etc. etc...

Okay.  So I've got my something hard and something recycled, I'm having a lot of fun collecting my something local, and am planning my something funny and something M.  Haven't begun any of the actual, you know, knitting stuff yet, although I have a lot of ideas!  I want to pop into the city sometime this week and pick up a few things if I can.

14 days?! Wow. I'm super close to finishing up another swap then it's full speed ahead on this one. The ideas are flowing and I have a bunch of categories figured out.

The funny category was one of the easier ones. I hope my partner at least thinks it's cute. :)

Ahh!! 14?!? (Less now) days! I have an impromptu week off to visit family for thanksgiving (yes, I'm Canadian. Yay!) but now I'm trying to get my swap done before we leave on Monday. On the upside. They have a bunch of yarn stores just in case I need something ;)

Eiseldora, I'm sorry to hear that.  Much love to you and your husband right now.


.:dollface:., I had been thinking how great the trip to my families was going to be, giving me time to get my package all done, you know, car knitting etc.  But then I realized I'll be the one driving!! D'oh! So now I'm just hoping that I can get it all done.... If the items ever show up... :x  And if they don't, I'll be able to visit a yarn store too, while visiting.

well, I'm still working on the 2nd item.
Started a ____ from my partner's pinterest, but it's not gonna work out
(used the wrong yarn :(
so....went to the store today & got supplies for 3 items to craft, plus
1 purchased item.
I've also ordered an item & hoping it arrives in time!
So....I think that leaves me with 2 blanks, and a trip to the LYS this week will
cover those plus any extras  :)

P.S.  As you get ready to send, please make sure your partner is still active on this
site, either posting in this thread or communicating with you via PM.  If you get any
vibes telling you she is out of commission or just not communicating well, please contact me
before you ship. Thanks!

The rest of the stuff is pretty under control...just knitting knitting knitting on tiny needles (hint)

With less than a week to go, I've changed my mind about my recycled and green items, and given myself more work.  Clever me, but my partner should love them, so that's the important thing!

Solidified my green item.  Just need to grab that something local today, find something dotted, and debate what to do with my 'M' item. What I ordered came in the wrong ________. so it's either hit the _________ when I'm nearby, or send it as is since it still fits M, even if it's a tiny bit of a stretch.

I love those moments..almost as good as "ooh I really need to make one for me now."

Thoughts are with you Kayrun, think I'm about to go through the same thing, MIL has had alzhiemers for years now, but she's now got pneumonia and is on a morphine drip. Probably just days now

Plus, one of my gorgeous cats, Jazzy, has been in and out of the vets for the past few days and it looks like it's renal failure, but we don't know why. He's only about 10 months old and such a loving friendly cat. I'm a bit of a mess at the moment. Life sometimes really sucks ass!!

Anyway my progress;

something local: need to get to a particular shop
something green: 100%
something recycled: 100%
something hard: 50%
something dotted: 100%
something funny: 90%
something M: 100%
sender's choice: 100%

I went to a local Fiber Festival at a farm today.

I got to see rommeny sheep sheered and they had fiber dying, spinning, 2 rooms full of fiber and yarn.

I went to another farm event a few weeks ago. That one was an alpaca farm.

The best part was petting the animals and having the staff tell me things like "this is charlie's wool" in my hand.

That is so cool, Eiseldora!  I went to the Farmers market today and discovered that there was a stand with alpaca yarn!!  I spent a bit of time talking with the owner...her farm is not far from me at all and she has 50 alpacas...she kept pulling out skeins of yarn and saying who it came from, too! ;D..I bought a few skeins from one of her "boys"...she invited me to her farm as well...I love yarn...

I'm gonna be a late sender (will send the appropriate pm's in a minute) there's no hope of sending today at all.  hopefully by friday, but then we will see.  I think monday maybe, and besides, if it doesn't hit the P.O. by friday at 10, it's just going to sit in the P.O. until monday, and I could use that time to perfect the gifts within, instead of getting all haphazard in a mad rush.

My partner's parcel got picked up by the postie today. Apparently it is a two leg journey, leg 1 from North Scotland down to Kent in South England. Second leg from Kent to Canada.
Keep fingers crossed that it arrived quickly and all in one piece.

Sent! *nervously crosses fingers* I always worry about sending overseas! So far, I've had good luck shipping to the UK. The only time I got serious heartburn was when I sent to New Zealand...I don't think I could do that again!

I'm so excited :)

I have sent many packages to the US of late, and all have arrived safe and sound (touch wood).

I know packages to NZ give me heart attacks as well!

Still waiting to see about a few things, so hopefully, will be able to ship soon! ;D

Package is all finished, I just need to get it out!  I had plans to hit the post office yesterday and, of course, ran out in a rush and left it at home.  So today it is (hopefully!)

I am sooo excited to see what everyone else made, and how they interpreted the categories.  I had such a hard time with something dotted!
