- 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: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

Details of swap:
* This swap is for cat lovers, cat owners, crazy cat ladies, and anyone else who just loves the purr of a cat and playfulness of a kitten. You don't need to own a cat, but you do need to love them!
* You will craft one large item OR two medium items, AND three small items. You can craft more if you want, but please talk to your partners! Communication is the key to successful swaps.
* Swap items can be for the cats or the owners. Obviously, owners need some lovin too!
* No handmade cat collars, please! You can buy a break-away collar at a store and embellish it, but please don't make it yourself. We don't want any kitty disasters.
* Try not to start crafting until you've read your partners info. I KNOW, it's hard to hold back. But, we will have some cat lovers who don't own them, or people who don't want specific items for their cats (catnip, feathers etc) I'll do my best to match people up with people that match their interests, but this is one of those swaps where preferences may alter the crafted items. Plus, a kitten would be good for different toys than an older cat, ya know?
* As with all other swaps, you MUST get a Delivery Confirmation # from the post office when you mail out (or hold onto a receipt or other documentation proving that you mailed your package). It's an extremely inexpensive way of assuring you, your partner, and organizer that you did indeed send out.

3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Cat Lovers Swap! on: May 07, 2007 08:29:20 AM
I was in a Cat Lovers swap last fall that was so much fun. I know that a lot of us said at the time that we'd want to do it again, so I thought I'd see what the interest is right now. I got a new kitty around New Years, so she needs some new toys! I've never organized a swap, but I'd love for this to be my first!

Check out the gallery

So, basically, we'd craft probably about 6 items total for our partners. Examples of items in the past: bags, cat toys, kitten mittens, scratching posts, cat beds, knitting markers.
4  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / advice for a blanket? on: August 07, 2005 07:47:58 PM
Ok, so I'm looking for some advice. I promised a friend that I'd make them a blanket, but it has been a much longer project than anticipated. Instead of a month or so, it's been over 2, and it's only like a third done (I'm talking 3 hours for every inch of progress). Does anyone have a suggestion for a quicker pattern? I'm just looking for something that I can finish in a reasonable time frame...
