1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Traveling Scarf Swap Round 13 on: August 15, 2011 05:12:11 PM
I've never heard of it before, but I'd be interested. Smiley

Oops! Added a description in the topic post, as well as a link to Round 12.
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Traveling Scarf Swap Round 13 on: August 15, 2011 01:53:25 PM
Well, I've been away for almost a year.. but my yarn collection has continued to grow. What better way to windle it down but by having a traveling scarf swap! I've searched the forums and I think round 12 was the last, finished in August of 2009.

I've been interested in hosting (or just participating) in a traveling scarf swap for a number of years now, just never got the chance to. Now I've decided there's no time like the present.

What is a Traveling Scarf, you say? Well..
A Traveling Scarf is a scarf that's mailed to various knitters/crocheters, who each add a bit to the scarf before mailing it on its way again. You start the scarf, using whatever yarn or pattern you want, setting the stage for how wide you want the final product to be. Then, you mail it off for the next person to add to it. If you've specified a specific color scheme, pattern, or motif, then those who add to your scarf will keep that in mind when adding their section.

At the end of the swap, each swapper will have a unique scarf, 12 "sections" long.

See the gallery of the previous swaps to see examples. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=293815.0

Ideally I'd like to have each round of the swap be 2 weeks, so that it ends in about 5-6 months, when people still need scarves in the cold months. Sign-ups would most likely start August 22nd and close Sept 12th (or when we hit 12 swappers). If we have enough interest and someone is willing to co-organize, we could in theory have 24 swappers, with two "sets" of 12 running.

Due to the aggressive shipping timeline, I'd have to limit it to US-only participates (sorry oversea-ers).

So... anyone interested?

Righto..looks like we're going to need an Angel for nostephot afterall... I know some of you have already messaged me about this, but I know some of you might not be available anymore.

Please PM if you're willing to make nostephot a kit - she's very open at this point.

I'm so glad everything worked out in the end! Jexxican, you did an awesome job as Angel. Thank you for responding so quickly!

I'm sorry that we had to get you an angel, Foxy Sam, and I'm very thankful at how you handled the whole situation. Not everyone reacts as calmly as you did when its discovered their partner has gone MIA. Thank you again for being such an awesome swapper.

Thank you to everyone for being such awesome swappers!! Aside from this one little hook up, as well as some issues with the ash, this swap has been relatively stress free. Just how swaps should be. Real life has reared its ugly head and so I'm going to be taking a break from organizing for a bit, but I know I'll be seeing you all in other swaps! So yeah. Thanks again everyone.. and happy swapping!!

Angels needed

I was hoping that this wouldn't happen.. but it looks like we're going to need two angels. One for Zombie_Queen and one for nostephot.

Zombie_Queen is open to a wide variety of kits and nostephot was meant to receive a large sewing project kit. Please PM me if you'd like more info on being one of their angels.

Mine will be mailed on the send date, this monday, since my post office is closed all weekend and I'm not totally finished as of today. Hand writing recipes takes a lot longer than i was expecting, lol.

Isn't the Post Office closed Monday in the States because of Memorial Day?

It's official, we need an angel. I -just- got to my destination after a long day of dealing with airlines. A 2.5 hour flight turned into 8 hours on a very crowded plane. Jexican offered to angel first, so unless she can't manage it, it's her's. I'll send the info out tomorrow after I get some rest..
