I'm sort of in the same boat.  I think I will have 2 larges and 2 smalls, but I think that's at least as much as 1 large, 1 med, and 1 small, no?

I want to poll everyone here...what constitutes a "big" project for you all? I'm not expecting anyone to spill the beans; I just want to get a rough idea. This is my first swap and I want to make sure that I don't disappoint my partner. I mean, I am spoiling her with lots of goodies and filler items, but I want to make sure that what I have in mind for her big project is indeed, a "big" item. Smiley

i am very interested on what everyone says about this....

I think a large project is considered 6+ hours, medium 3 hours, and small 1-2 hours.  This is just a guide line since some people craft faster or slower.  I started what I thought would only take 1-2 hours and it has taken more like 3+ hours.  I think we just have to use our best judgement. Smiley

To me a big project means it take a few sittings to do.  Like I have to work on it over a few days.  A medium project takes about two sittings, and the smalls just take one.  This works system well for me and my attention span.
Big item: 80%
Medium: 100%
Small #1: 90%
Small#2 & 3: planning stages (waiting for supplies)
How are the rest of you doing?  I love seeing where everyone else is!

Wouldn't I be a great spokesperson for things?

I base it on how long it takes me also. So my big item, I try to figure out how long it would take someone who does that type of craft a lot. Is it something that takes time for someone who does that as their main craft or one of their mains. If I think it would take that person over 6 hours, then I consider it big.

I don't know, it makes sense in my head, but not so much typed out.  Grin

I knit a lot of the stuff that I do for swaps and so I'd say that a lot of the stuff I knit would be a large craft.  As an example, if I were making a scarf or a shrug, it would probably be a large (as it would take me more than 6 hours).  A sweater would be a HUGE craft...maybe I would count it as my large and my medium or my small (but if I were going to knit something that big, I would definitely discuss it with my partner first).  And something like a headband or armwarmers or a simple hat could count as a medium or small depending on how much time it takes and how involved it is.

I'm afraid that might not help as much for non-knitters, but it's the best I've got at the moment.

My problem is that I've started something for my partner, and now I want to change it, but I can't see my work going to waste. It's knitted and I'm a slow knitter. I can crochet at least 3 times faster than I knit.

Have old jeans, pillowcases, or t-shirts? I'll take them! I'm also always looking for the sleeves to women's long sleeved shirts!

Yes ma'am there is. I can do it, and I am doing it. haha. Just there's 2 part of the item that HAVE to be knitted. I'm crocheting the rest of it. I'm just blah with it. I think I'm having a yarn overdose.  Tongue
