I signed up, this is my first swap and I'm also more or less a beginner knitter, so I should probably be paired with someone who a.) doesn't care much about what they recieve or b.) is a beginner sewer themselves. So if you are out there make yourselves known!

I would make a shrug for a a-line knee-length skirt!!!
Coul you please change my info..? (on that part that says no shrughs, clothing in general) I just said I wouldn't make it, because it's very time consuming, but I don't mind doing one and receive one!

Hey lasandri, I've made one myself, but the pick up the stitches part didn't come out well, I did it on a black yarn and I couldn't see very well (I tryed this yesterday by 2 a.m.), so today I frogged that part and tomorrow I'll finish it (properly).
It's quite fun and a fast project too Smiley

so here's my question... i know this was discussed to death in the "new swap idea" post of this, but I'm curious anyways.  I imagine that sewing three small accessories might take a bit less time than knitting three accessories.  Not that I'm at all hating on sew-ers... I just know that even knitting myself an accessory (a hat, an ipod cozy) is a committed project.  So three seems... a bit overwhelming.  Does anyone else have a thought on this?

For real! Even just a simple ribbed hat is going to take me a couple of days to finish. I know it can take a while to sew something, but um... it's a lot more time-consuming to knit! I would much rather knit someone a laptop cozy and maybe something smaller, than feel like I have to make them 3 small accessories just to be able to finish according to the rules.

I just have a few words: nitwit, blubber, oddment, tweak.

i've signed up for this already, but i think that if partners have a bit of conversation about their wishes and skills, then that would be fine as far as project completion goes.

also, i think perhaps the yarn people criteria could be one item, while the sew people criteria could be two or three, that might be the same amount of time invested.

Or the specific items made might have bearing on the criteria. a jordy style flat bottom bag is quite simple to make, once you've gotten the practice., But for me, making clothing would definitely be some hours invested (when you consider all the algorithms and long division and thinking i would have to do to get it to come out correctly)

kmsmaverick, I agree Smiley
I just want to change my info, I'll be able to make a shrug if someone could make me a skirt Wink

Can it be more of an open swap where we make arrangements with our partners?  What if we want someone to knit us a shrug and they want a skirt?  I want to sign up but I'm not feeling the three accessories thing.
I think that would be best-if once we got our partners, we just made satisfactory arrangements with them.
