Swap name: Friendship Granny Square Swap R7 (Nov)
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: indigo_roses
Sign-up date range:  11/2/08 - 11/9/08
Date to send items by: 11/29/08

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): No.

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Yes!
All ages allowed? Yes (Parental consent required for those under 18!)

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: YES
- Will recruit a co-organizer or give all details to a Swap Moderator if this swap has more than 25 participants: 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 at least one swap successfully before signing up for multiple swaps: YES
- Is not currently signed up for more than five swaps: YES
- Does not have any negative feedback: YES

I reserve the right to refuse any member who has bad communication and/or late send-outs for previous swaps!  If you participated in R6, as long as you tell me that your squares for that round are in the mail, I will allow you to go ahead and participate in R5:))  But, if your partner for R6 has not received your R6 squares by 11/29/08, you WILL NOT be allowed to sign up for any future rounds until your squares for all previous rounds have been received.


This is an ongoing swap, but you only sign up for the months that you want to participate. 

For this round, you will knit, crochet or loom 4 8" granny squares for one partner.  The squares can be made in any pattern, but MUST be made in your partner's color preference.  You MUST use only 4-ply acrylic worsted weight yarn (Wool, alpaca, etc is not acceptable).  Just think.....it would not be good to have a mixture of wool and acrylic squares for your friendship ghan since wool is not machine washable:))  All squares MUST be mailed no later than 11/29.


1. You MUST put FRIENDSHIP GRANNY SQUARE SWAP R7 in all of your PM's.
2. Once partners have been assigned, you MUST post to this thread atleast once
a week.
3. You MUST provide a DC# if you and your partner both live in the USA.  If you live in another country you MUST keep the receipt and provide a copy to your partner and me if requested.
4. You MUST PM me when you send & receive. COMMUNICATION is the key:))  If you see that you're going to be late sending, you MUST PM both me and your partner and let us know what's going on.  We all understand that life does happen and sometimes things come up that are out of our control.  If an emergency arises that will prevent you from sending your squares on time, just keep in touch and let us know what's going on and everything will be just fine:))
5. You MUST post pictures of the squares you receive from your partner in the swap gallery.  If you will not be able to post pics, you need to make arrangements with your partner to post pics for you so we can all see the beautiful squares that everyone receives:))

If you want to participate you must PM the following information to the organizer.  PLEASE....PLEASE... .PLEASE....for your protection and privacy DO NOT post this information to the thread.

I'm excited to be in on this again. Although this is Round 7, it's only my second round.

I'm hoping I'll have time to join up again (KRB, this would be my third in 7  Smiley ) but I won't know until this weekend. 

Need something crocheted?  I'll swap amis, afghans, shawls or whatever for a box of yarn.  Smiley

Will I be able to sign up for this now even if I'm still technically in my first swap and can't be in more than one swap?
My squares for round 6 are in the mail Smiley

Due to craftster rules, I can't let you in to this round until I give you feedback for the last round. But once I get confirmation that your squares have been received, I can add you! They should get there soon. If you want, you can pm me your questionnaire now and I can have you as pending.

I would be interested in this swap, but I'm still in my first swap and sendouts aren't finalized until Nov 14. So maybe next round!

This sounds like a really fun and easy swap...I've completed my first swap successfully, I'm just waiting for my feedback to be updated, and in the meantime I'll be considering this one...

Riding off into the sunset, just me...and my trusty G hook on my hip...
