Jelly:  Some people are already thinking about a Round 2.  There is a thread about that here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=50247.msg527874#msg527874

We had a lot of fun with this swap, so I think a round two might be worth your while!

Just a suggestion, though: I thought it would add a layer of fun if people didn't know where the cd they would get was coming from (a secret swap).  This was not worth the hassle!  I do not think people were substantially more excited by being surprised than if they knew thier partner's identity ahead of time, and it made it much more difficult to organize.  Also, two people ended up flaking which is kind of easier to do if it's not a A <-->B type swap.

Anyway, have fun!  I look forward to seeing the playlists you come up with.

according to Rowan's sales pitch, the yarn is "grafitti inspired" for "today's hip, urban lifestyle".  or, you know, something like that.

Hey, Snacker, you're not alone: I knit through the back loop, thinking that was what everybody did, for probably a year or so!

You might also want to check out how you are purling.  It turned out that, to keep my knitting looking "normal" (as opposed to twisted) when I was ktbling, I had started doing an odd purling thing (not ptbl, exactly, more like purling upside down?)  Just something you might want to be aware of...

when Spray came in to the LYS where I work, an employee jokingly called it "tubercolusis yarn" (because of the coughing of blood).  totally gross, but the name has stuck - now we all call it that.  not around customers, though.  usually.

Hello, all. 

I'm sure you thought we had this swap all wrapped up - but no.

There are two people who appear to have flaked out on us.  Thus there are also two people who sent out cds and have not gotten one in return.

If anybody is interested in being a swap angel to craftykate or dukeslax44, send me a pm.

Thank you!

Your frustrated first-time swap organizer.

record bowls! 

there is a big thread about these under the 'crafty housewares' category.

you might notice that for some of the sizes it does not have a zero?  think of "k0" as "unless you are making X size, just go on to the next step". 

I hope that is clear enough on my part.  Smiley

it sounds great.  I am dissapointed that this, like Sweater Generator (which is a similar program that's been around a while), appears to not be Mac-friendly.  oh, well.
